Here's a link to an interesting interview with Cory Butler by mmorpg.org. He discusses the 2.1 update, Cathar, character customization... and TRANSFERS!
Admittedly, that's kind of vague but it sounds like that transfers will be the next big thing after 2.1 releases.MMORPG.com: Are for-pay server transfers coming? If so, when can players look forward to this service? Can you talk about any additional for-pay services players can look forward to?
Cory Butler: Paid Character Transfers were originally slated to be part of Game Update 2.1, but we ran into a few bugs with the new Legacy Achievement system. You can expect Paid Character Transfers to be coming in hot on the heels of Game Update 2.1. No new announcements for paid services to make at this time.
