I was able to move a level 52 character with 5000g once the servers & transfers were back online Thursday evening. Based on my reading of the forum posts above, this made sense to me; blue posts made it seem like it had been raised to 5k. However, on reading the support article, it comes into contradiction.
Is the gold cap now back to 2k? I had waited to move another character to gather some last few things, but now I am unable to move with the gold I had distributed.
I’m not here to agonize over the gold – I’m just trying to get some clarification so others don’t make this same mistake.
From level 51-69 the gold transfer limit is 2,000g and for level 70 characters the cap is 5,000g.
For a short time following pre-patch, the caps were not being correctly enforced for their level ranges. These ranges/caps could of course be adjusted in the future at the discretion of the World of Warcraft team.
