How to take the max gold with you!

What’s the Gold Transfer Max?

The following gold limits apply to all characters.
Max. Gold Transfer

Level 10-30 300g
Level 31-50 1,000g
Level 51-70 5,000g
Level 71-80 20,000g
Level 81-99 50,000g

The maximum transferable is based on level.  Since most players end up wanting to transfer characters and toons over level 100,  your maximum is 250,000g.   

That would be a small amount to be transferred for a gold making “goblin”.



Characters at level 110 and above may now move up to 1,000,000 gold when performing a Character Transfer.



How to Transfer Max Gold in Warcraft

To start the transfer process, log in on the website and select the shop section.


The transfer process starts when you select Game Services and follow the instructions.

You transfer your 250,000g gold (any excess will disappear!) along with the contents of your personal bank

You can’t take along your guild bank or anything in the mail.  Empty your mailbox first. Assign your personal ‘guild’ bank/s to your alt/s.

You can also do this from within World of Warcraft using the Shop button.

The transfer can take from a few hours to a few days.


Gold Makers Transfer More With Their Banks

But what if I have more than 250,000g to transfer?

This is where your knowledge and a little research comes in handy.

  • Find the new server you are moving to. Let’s say you are moving to the Emerald Dream Server).
  • If you take a look at their general and specific economy on the Undermine Journal website.
  • On the right-hand side of the front page under the server, you see a list of different sections.
  • Look for Deals and a breakdown of all of the professions.

With your transfer, all of your personal bank transfers with you. 

That means all of those items will appear on your new server. This is to your advantage because you can stack your personal bank with lots of high ticket items that would sell on the new server.

Can you see where this would be an advantage to you?   You can stock up with high priced crafted items that you can move along with your toon.

Mounts are particularly great to transfer.   A little knowledge can give you an advantage.

Also, remember that BOA (Bind on Account) items will go cross realm.  So you can remove them from your character for now, and send them across afterward.  A few more slots to fill up with transferable valuables!

Void Storage also goes with your toon but the only items you can drop in there are already Bound items.


Guild Banks Increase Gold Transfer Max in Warcraft

The next option is to transfer the Guild bank.  This is a much more expensive strategy but it also has higher rewards.

How to start a Guild transfer can be found here

A couple of things to see

1.   Only the Guild Master can transfer the guild bank along with themselves to the new server.
2.   Any other members of the guild (including your own characters) have to transfer separately
3.   All of the gold and materials found in the Guild bank transfer.

The number of cost ranges depending on what is required for the transfer.

Guild Master Faction change = $40 U.S.
Guild Master Realm Transfer = $35 U.S.
Guild Name Change = $25 U.S.

If you purchase all of these together you get a $10 dollar discount

The power behind is that you get many more slots to transfer items and materials into the new realm.

“The Guild Bank is the biggest and best for max transfer gold.”


Beginners Guide To Max Gold Transfer with Pets

Another option that is available is using the buying/selling of pets to your advantage


How to Buy a Pet, Learn it, Go to New Char/Toon, Re-cage the Pet, and Sell it

Your battle pet stable has a maximum of 1000 slots.   But all of these slots are available to any realm you transfer too.  Remember that research we talked about on The Undermine Journal for the realm you’re moving too?

There is a section on the right-hand side of the UnderJournal Page listed as ‘Battle Pets’ 
This will give you a good list of what pets are selling on your new server.
Comparing what pets to buy and learn on your ‘old’ server to sell on your ‘new’ server.  Buy low,  sell high.


Here comes the tweetable!

Knowledge is Gold Making Power

Armed with the knowledge of buying low pets on your old home server and ‘learning’ them to go to the new server can add a few thousand more gold into what gets transferred.

With a little planning and a little skill, you can move your gold making operation to a new server without skipping a gold making beat.

About The Gold Dragon

The Gold Dragon is part of The Gold Queen’s “royal” court.  He began making gold his way in Azeroth 8+ years ago. Soon he took his menagerie of crafters and gatherers all the way to the legion HQ and beyond.  I’ve always believed in helping people if they ask and showing people that you do not have to be a Goblin Engineer to make gold in World of Warcraft. Many of the lessons I’ve learned in obtaining gold in WoW I’ve also adapted to my personal life. I have gained and spent over 8 million gold. Spending on personal items and helping my guildmates. Dancing on Azerothian mailboxes for gold tips is just a hobby.  I believe that everyone can make gold if they want to!
