Character transfer initiated to the account named in in-game mail.
Apparently this will take 10 hours to complete.
I have never done this, so I don’t really know
I’ll keep you updated when I check back in 10 hours.
I think the transfer is completed. There is no UI (or I didnt find it) to check on the progress of the transfer or the outcome. You enter the account name one time when you select the character and never hear from the process again until your account has one less char.
So I hope this worked out, if not please contact me and we will contact CCP support if there are any issues.
