Hi, I was just trying to switch servers with this toon, and it says my character is Locked, I don't know why, could I get some help please?

When I try to login it says "You cannot log in until the character update processyou recently initaited is complete."

Can you check your transactions page and see if there is anything currently listed as "pendin"?

All it is asking is for me to finalize the payment on the character, which I can't because it's locked for a reason unkown to me.

if it says to contact someone, its most likely billing. other than seeing the ststus, there is often not alot the guys here can do. especialy if its a payment issue in any form, you would HAVE to talk to billing

Your character is locked due to a pending character transfer, Deathhulk.

Did you not initiate one?

For future reference, it's best to create a new thread if you need assistance. As you can see this thread is a couple weeks old. =)

This is quite new, looks like it's still processing.

It's completely normal for a character to be locked if there is a process underway.

You'll just need to wait till this first process finishes, then request the other portion.

While there is now a combined faction/realm transfer option - there is no difference in the price, or in the process time really.
