I understand that you can put items in several pack animals when Xshard transferring and have them safely arrive at your destination shard. Has anyone actually done this? Do the pack animals have to be in the stable or do they have to be bonded? Were any items lost? I am a little nervous about putting my precious and hard won pixels in a unbonded llama and hitting the "go button" on the transfer gump....any suggestions or horror stories to share?
Thank you in advance for your help.

I've heard you just need to have them next to you when you do it.

I have not personally done this but know several who have. To my knowledge there has never been an issue with the packies not arriving on the new shard. I know the directions to do the character transfer are pretty detailed. I am sure if you follow the instructions everything will be fine.

During the invasions it was much more dangerous, because you could appear in an invaded city. That's no longer the case.

Not really more dangerous, but could have been more frustrating. We transfered during the invasions and it wasn't that bad. Basically you get a container for everything - even your packies. So you appear naked, and if you were to die, nothing would be lost.
We appeared in 'Glow which was under attack. Was basically a hop-skip-jump to the moongate and all went well.

Personally, we waited that extra week for the packies to bond - better safe than sorry (This is UO afterall). We also used pack Horses instead of llamas, as WAY back in the day, llama's had issues with obeying their master.
