    Ithil Server Closure and Free Transfers

    The Legendary World of Ithil will be closing to public log-in after June 15th, 2021, with the world formally becoming unavailable after our regular 8:00 AM Eastern (-4GMT) weekly restart on the 16th. Through the end of the year free character and shared item transfers will remain available from Ithil to any other game world, including our remaining Legendary World of Anor. After December 31st, 2021, the Ithil game world will be closed permanently, and any remaining characters will not be able to be transferred or accessed. Kinship leaders should log in to abandon or sell their kinship houses before June 16th to allow for successful character transfer. Mail does not transfer, so please login all characters before June 16th to detach any mail attachments. Thankyou!


    FAQ:


    How can I preserve my existing characters currently on Ithil?


    Players can transfer their characters and items from Ithil to any other game world for free using the Transfer button available after logging into the game launcher with your user name and password.


    Will Ithil eventually have its character and account data deleted?


    Yes. Players have through December31st, 2021 to transfer their characters and shared items from Ithil. After that time characters and items will no longer be transferrable, and Customer Support will not be able to assist players in recovering those characters or items.


    Why is Ithil being closed?


    Ithil was initially opened in response to a large number of players logging into Anor during the launch of our Legendary Worlds, and while it has been home to many players since then, its population has always been among the lowest of our game worlds. Anor will remain home to our existing Legendary World experience while we bring out new server events and options in the future.


    Can I transfer to a U.S/European game world?


    Yes. Characters created on Ithil do not face the same historical technical restrictions between U.S. and European game worlds that our other servers do, so characters can transfer to any server they wish. Once a character has arrived on a U.S. or European destination game world, the technical restriction will once again apply and will prevent that character from transferring between U.S. and European game worlds.


    Do I need to abandon my kinship home as a guild leader in order to transfer away from Ithil?


    Yes. Kinship leaders should login to abandon or sell their kinship houses before June 16th to allow for successful character transfer.


    Do I need to delete my unread mail in order to transfer away from Ithil?


    Mail does not transfer, so please login all characters before June 16th to detach any mail attachments. While you can transfer with unread mail, anything in your mail system will not carry with you over to your new game world.

    We are making Premium Housing refunds (when you click the Sell button to abandon your Premium House) return 100% of the home's cost in writs ON ITHIL ONLY during this free transfer period. If you have already refunded your premium housing on Ithil over the past day, contact customer support for assistance. Thank you!

    Through the end of the year free character and shared item transfers remain available from Ithil to any other game world. Ithil is now closed to public log-in, however, and will remain so permanently.
