    this is what is stated in the forums re. Tarinax demise...

    Q: Should I take the things I have in the bank or shared bank out?
    A: There is no need to take anything out of the bank or shared bank. All items will be transferred over completely. If you delete all characters on Tarinax before the merge, your shared bank will still appear on Antonia Bayle in the overflow items window.

    I used character transfer token to go to Skyfire. My shared bank from Tarinax items are no where to be found.

    If you use a transfer token, your shared bank doesn't go with the transfer. You have to look at the rules for the way you're moving. What you're quoting only applies to if you stay on Tarinax until the merge.

    Whoa! Dang!

    Do you have a Tarinax alt you could also use the free transfer on and go to Skyfire with? You could pack her personal bags and personal bank bags full with all the shared bank stuff first, before you leave, and get all the shared bank items over to Skyfire that way.

    All I see in the post dated 2/8 in news and announcements re. Transfer token was this.
    Q: Will there be free character transfers off Tarinax before the merge?
    A: Right now, if you log in to your character, you will find a character transfer token that will allow you to pick the server to which you wish to transfer. You will be able to use this token anytime starting after scheduled maintenance on February 15, 2023, until the servers come down for the merge on March 7, 2023.

    so I lost some stuff. No biggie,

    Only the one character there. It’s fine though, Ty for response

    Time to roll a quick alt on Tarinax. ;) Stuff her personal bags and personal bank bags full, transfer her to Skyfire, move all items and plat to the new shared bank, then delete her if you need the slot back.

    The question you posted in your first post was for the merge into AB. As mentioned, transfer tokens have a separate FAQ, and iirc (and I could be wrong) even lets you know when you use the token that your shared bank stays where it's at.

    For the idea of creating a new character and then transferring it, I'd be interested to know if the new character got a free transfer token as well.

    I got new character, shared bank still there, lvl70 boost which I needed to use to use transfer token, but when I attempted to use token told I wasn’t old enough so try again March 18. It will work, assuming token still valid when I get to AB

    Ahhhhh, you're brilliant! Let's hope the transfer token is still there and still works once you get to AB, instead of just vanishing out of your bags. Hmmmm.

    You should keep trying every couple days and see if anything changes. Maybe the transfer file for that character has to re-register that you're now L70 and high enough in level to transfer to Skyfire. I would keep trying before the merger, just in case your transfer token disappears after the merger.

    Unfortunately, characters require a certain 'life' time before they can be transferred, unless the devs overwrite it on the specific tokens. I'm guessing the free tokens don't overwrite it (As there isn't really a reason to, typically) which is unfortunate in this case. You *might* be able to petition and get lucky with a GM response, but it's not terribly likely sadly.

    If you use your 70 token and then leave the island to either Freeport or Qeynos, it should move your character to another server with the token. I just did it with my character and successfully transferred.
