RGR Transfer has completed. Transfer to Gladden at will!
Remember -- mail, AH items, and the friends list do NOT transfer!!
The transfer button will appear when you open the launcher and login,
below the "Play" button (see picture for the process). Step 1, click
transfer. Step 2, select Elendilmir (if you hover, it will show you the
characters you have on Elendilmir). Step 3, make sure you select the
shared account data along with the characters you want to transfer. Unless you are splitting destination servers, I recommend you just select all.
Do NOT log in during the transfer process. It took approximately an
hour for my initial transfer, yours may take more or less time,
depending on how busy the servers are and how much stuff you're moving. smile emoticon Wait for the email! If it doesn't come, check in with me here and I'll see if it shows you on Gladden yet.
After transferring, you should automatically rejoin RGR. If you do
not, /joinchannel rgrfriends rawr and ask, or look for Milarien (I'll
keep her on as much as possible, but I am working, so I may not notice
any tells right away).
You should receive an email with a credit
for the purchase price of your E house. Once you buy a house on
Gladden, it will automatically have the storage capacity and prepayments
that you had on E. Your stuff will be in the storage (or possibly in

On September 14th we will begin transfers off of the first two of our closing worlds Elendilmir- US and Estel- EU. On that day the transfer button will appear in the launcher and allow players to move characters and accounts for free from Elendilmir and Estel ONLY to any of the remaining worlds for the corresponding region. (US- Arkenstone, Crickhollow, Landroval and Gladden *Brandywine remains closed to transfers at this time. EU- Belegaer, Gwaihir, Sirannon, Laurelin, and Evernight) After this date free transfers off Elendilmir and Estel, will remain available. There is no need to rush into making a decision. You will continue to be able to play on your source world until 2016. If you wish to move to Brandywine and are on a US source world, you can stay on your source world until we re-open Brandywine as a destination world. We expect to do this towards the end of the year.
Kinship leaders and members of Elendilmir and Estel, prepare for your moves and make sure to check in to see where your kinship mates and friends plan to go. Remember that to make a Kinship transfer smooth, the Kinship Leader should move character and shared data to the destination world first, followed by the Kinship members so that everyone is auto-added on the new world.

We will monitor these transfers and the health of the populations of the destination worlds and will move on to the next two worlds in the weeks following if all is well. You can see a list of closing worlds in order here: https://www.lotro.com/en/game/articl...e-announcement
In the meantime we are working away in the background setting up the new hardware and datacenter to make the remaining worlds ready for you to enjoy. Transfers between remaining worlds will reopen after the new hardware is in place.

Thank you all for your continued patience and feedback on this process!
