Q: Where do you end up/appear when you transfer shards?
Reason I ask, is the FAQ says something like "You'll arrive in one of the virtue cities". This could be a problem, if the city is under attack.
I'm guessing though, that it would be New Haven... Just wondering if somebody can confirm, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

any of the original towns of Britannia. I've transferred four or five times since the invasions began and never landed in an invasion

Do you appear naked with that box that I read about? And what about pets (Bringing in some packs with items on them)

It is possible to land in an invasion, unfortunately. It happened to me.

It's not a big deal - as long as you don't touch the stuff in your transfer crate until you are safe.

- When you transfer from your shard, UO will show you your transfer crate, and all the items that will be transferred. It takes all the equipped items, and all of your backpack items and puts them in here, along with stabled pets and bank box items. This is to be sure you arent missing something.

- There's about an hour here where your account can't log in to either shard, during the transfer process.

- When you arrive, you can remove items from your transfer box here. You appear at one of the original newbie start locations naked. If an invasion is occuring, close the transfer box, and get somewhere safe.

The transfer box works much like a moving crate - you open it by clicking yourself, and hitting Open Transfer Items. The crate will exist for 7 days following the completion of the transfer process.

There is a list of items that will not transfer on uo.com.

Thanks, that was very useful information. Unfortunately (I should have worded this better) Pack Pets following you, are they in the box also, or do they just appear with the stuff on them (or is their stuff also in the moving crate thing)? Character we want to transfer has poor armor and doesn't stand a chance near that type of spawn.

I am not sure about their backpack contents - but pets that are near you are transferred - i've never transferred doing this, so I'm not sure.

I am not sure where these pets appear, or if they keep the stuff that was in their pack.

Ok, thanks for the replies. To sum it up, we read some more and pets get put into a box, as well as items they had on them. So you truely transfer naked. Which, is a good thing, because yes, we transfered into a city that was under attack (Moonglow). Fortunately, it was a safe run out.

Yeah, it really depends on which city it dumps you in. the spawn often doesnt cover the entire city during an attack.

Moonglow is a good one, the inn's not far from the edge of the city. Brit is bad if you show up at the eastern inn. Trinsic is tricky too.

Have fun on your new shard :)
