The first merge will consolidate the Crushbone, Butcherblock, and Oasis servers into Maj’Dul sometime on or after October 19th. Daybreak is planning additional merges prior to the Terrors of Thalumbra launch, which is scheduled for mid-November. Following all of the merges, the studio will allow players to freely transfer between the four remaining shards.
“We’re also working to time this with the launch of the Terrors of Thalumbra beta server,” Daybreak added. “While we’re still working on optimizing the server consolidation process to minimize downtime, there will be extended downtimes for servers that are merging. Hopefully you’ll choose to spend some time exploring Thalumbra with other beta testers during this time.”
