To xfer off my current server for a T3 server.
I am currently on Sorrows Furnace. I moved right before Xfers required a fee to play with some kats who don't play anymore. In the past Ive been pretty on and off again but with the LFG and many addtions to the game since I last played (June 2013) I am really loving the game and I think Im finally hooked.
My goal is WvW while in the past being on Sorrow's Furnace didn't matter when I didnt take the game as seriously, but now I see that we are in T7. So Im thinking of going back to Dragonbrand where I actually have several RL friends who play on and off. Not to mention its a T3 server which I think is right where I want to be for WvW.
The catch is that I only have a 50 and a 35 where I'm not making enough money to trade for gems. Spending $ is out of the question as its not a good time for me to spend anything outside of my budget.
So I learned that I can delete all my toons and with the changes to the currencies Ill basically still keep all my gold, laurels, karma etc as well as anything stored in my bank. I also have the birthday thingies to boost a toon to 20 out the door.
So it seems like deleting my toons and xfering for free is probably a great option but it just seems odd to me. Like I would never in a million years think about deleting characters that have any amount of invested time. Is it pretty common for people to do this? I feel like I can probably level up new toons pretty fast as I have a better grasp of the game now but I guess Im afraid of burnout. Any advice? Should I do this or is it best to stay where I am and farm gold for gems?
Thanks in advance for the advice.
