Benefits of transferring Worlds

The key thing to remember about transferring worlds is that it’s mainly used to connect with your friends. The world transfer service will allow you to meet up with your friends and play together. On top of that, the feature really allows you to move to another world that you like based on many things: name, players etc…

In the event that you the player use the World Transfer Service and the destination World is one with a large population or maximum population, login restrictions may be enacted during each region’s peak time, which falls between 9 p.m. to midnight according to Square Enix.

Restrictions Using The World Transfer Service

Are there restrictions using the world transfer service? Absolutely! According to Square Enix, in order to prevent the transportation of RMT gil, there will be limitations on the amount of gil that you can bring over to the destination world. This is a critical specification in order to protect the economic conditions on each world, so before you transfer be sure to please keep this in mind. In the event you transfer worlds and you exceed the gil limit, the amount that exceeds the limit will be completely lost.

Also, make sure that if you and your friends are transferring to another world, always be sure that the world is not over-populated so you all are able to get in without any problems.
