1. Do I understand correctly that there will be no character transfers to
Stromm afterward?

2. My highest level characters (outside of FV) are on Saryrn. I stopped
playing there long before EQ2 came out, because it was getting to be a
ghost town at the mid-levels. I see an opportunity now to possibly get some
more mileage out of them. Assuming no transfers to Stromm, are there any
other servers with a healthy lower- and mid-level population that I might
consider transferring to?

A few weeks ago, Stromm did not appear on the list of
servers when you did a /movelog. It appears now, and I have
chosen it to move some chars after the recent mergers. Time
will tell if the chars actually get moved or whether the
fact Stromm appeared was an error.

My characters are on Cazic Thule, and we were the first to go through a
merge. I logged my account for the first time in ages immediately after the
merge just to see how things had been affected (and to get a little use out
of the All Access Pass), and have been quite pleased to find that there are
opportunities for all of my characters to see the light of day.

One afternoon I decided to run my 18 necro across Everfrost to hunt the top
of Perma, and noticed something I hadn't seen in over a year. The entire
zone was being utilized. There were groups in the newbie area, a group on
Bandl's ledge hunting calfs, Redwind was beign picked on, and there was a
waiting list at IGs ... just like the old days.

I've since abandoned EQ2 and progressed my Ogre SK from 34 to 36, and he's
happily entrenched in Lower Guk.

The only thing that I have noticed is that prices in the bazaar are all over
the place. Apparently the economy on Brell was as fubar as CT's, and
combining the two has really caused chaos. Also, there's a discrepancy in
the usage of acronyms that's causing a bit of trouble for folks trying to
assemble pick-up groups/raids.

But, by and large, the merge has made the low-mid to upper-end game playable
again, at least on Cazic Thule.

....and does anyone know if it would be possible to transfer to Venril
Sathir? I've trawled for info on transferring from a Sony server to a
non-Sony server during these server merges, but I have been unable to
find out if Sony will be willing to do this. I have a suspicion that
it might not be able to be done as one of their free, post-merge
transfers, seeing as it involves an account transfer.

The only information I've found regarding this is the standard fee
service for transferring from a US server to a European server. I've
seen no mention of free transfers, especially as Ubisoft seem to be
steering clear of the server mergers.

probably, but bare in mind that it is a one way trip. I play on VS, and
unless you are in a guild, you are screwed except at peak times.

Well, as I live in the UK, I do sometimes play on there (there were no
European servers when I started, but I started a few characters off on
there) and I find I can do OK without a guild - thanks for the forums
info :)

Sayrn is still a vacant lot. I hope that this happens there as well. I
have a 70 BL there and I am in a raiding guild, but I have some neglected
alts that I like to play. And finding a group for them is like pulling
teeth.

I can now confirm that you can move chars to Stromm. I
checked earlier and my requested move to Stromm has been
completed.

Aye, same here. Now I'm just having a time getting my names changes so they
don't end with an 'x'.
