Here’s how you can transfer your Secret World account perks to Legends

Starting Friday, June 23rd, Secret World Legends’ headstart goes live for any veteran TSW players as well as those who have signed up for the beta. While TSW players can’t import their character, they will want to take advantage of what Funcom is calling the “legacy transfer system” to access several perks for their new accounts.

The good news is that Funcom has already linked existing TSW and new SWL accounts, so all you’ll need to do is log in to the Secret Worlds Legends account page this weekend using your TSW credentials and activate a legacy transfer (do not make a new account!). Players who do this will transfer any patron time to SWL, including lifetime subs, unlock every weapon page in the reboot, and copy over cosmetic outfits, pets, and mounts (with a few exceptions). Titles and achievements will not make the jump to the new game.

The legacy transfer system will remain available for players until sometime in August. Funcom still has not addressed what perks patron members will get nor an exact launch time for the headstart.

Source: Secret World Legends. Thanks to everyone who tipped this!
Update: Funcom has confirmed for us that emotes (like dances) do indeed transfer. There are things that do not, however, including the sleuth’s pipe, shoes of synchronicity, and Nassir’s dance.

ACCOUNTS AND THE LEGACY TRANSFER SYSTEM

Please read this FAQ before transfer. Especially make sure to equip male and female versions of clothing. If an item is not equipped and in your closet, will not be transferred.

Your wording is a bit confusing. If you have an item of clothing but it is still an icon in your inventory (or still listed in your delivered items that you haven’t picked up), you need to make sure to use the icon so it goes in your dressing room. It does not need to be equipped.

HOWEVER, if you want both the male and female versions of those cosmetics that have a male and female version, it sounds like you need to make sure you’ve at least equipped those items on characters of both genders to make sure you get both versions transferred over. At least that’s how I interpret it. I’m only ever going to have female characters so I’m not going to worry about it.

True, I should have said the item needs to be equipped once on a male and female character to be locked into both genders.

The big flashing red reminder here is that each gender technically has a different version of each clothing unlock. So, if you bought any account-wide outfits, you need to make sure that you’ve unlocked them on a male character in TSW to get that outfit on your male characters in SWL, and likewise for female characters.

In other words, it’s a good idea to jump into TSW, log into a character of each gender, and then claim and unlock all your account-bound items before transferring your account.

Has there been anything said about weapon moulds transferring? I bought a lot of those in the cash shop, too.

If i wait for the steam release… will it still pull all my costumes from my (non steam) TSW account?

ridiculous – 9:30 EST on the day of the early start and the servers are offline.

According to their twitter, head start doesn’t start until 14:00 EDT.

What is the process if you aren’t in beta and don’t have an SWL account yet, or really know where to go to see any information on this? Do they post this somewhere in the old Secret World forums?

Do we make a new SWL account on the 26th and then go to that page and link it?

If you had an account for TSW, go to the SWL account page and log in with your TSW credentials so your accounts will be linked. I would imagine there will be a download link there once it’s available.

go to your TSW account. There is a place on the upper right hand side where you can reserve a SWL name. However, as has been said, you can’t download at the moment. Maybe FC will send out a tweet when the servers come back online…maybe it won’t.

You would make a new SWL account when the http://account.secretworldlegends.com site becomes available.

The page is up, but it doesn’t recognize my funcom or tsw login information. Do I make a new Legends account and then that lets me link it to my TSW? Or am I going to have to call support? :(

update: it found me on a ‘forgot password’ and let me generate a new temporary one, hopefully getting closer. :)

With the launch of stormblood this week, Morrowind earlier this month, and steam sale yesterday, I wish them luck.

Ill certainly download it and try it at some point, but with stormblood and now Neir from the steam sale, im booked for a bit.
