I transferred servers at least 4 times in WoW.

But how many servers does Aion even have? I'm sure people will pay, but the high price is likely due to a low expectation for demand.

When will people learn that Nsoft is just fail when it comes to customer support.

Well, that was the price established as standard by WoW. And people pay for it, so go figure.
The option is nice to have anyways.

@Gaugamela
yeah its funny isnt that people have created their own market by paying these prices.
Because WoW got away with it, $24.99 has become the standard for every game to charge now

@(Unverified) Even Blizzard offers free transfers to balance servers out.

What money grubbing! How about letting people move instantly between servers for free, like in Free Realms and Guild Wars?

This is absurd. Aion has had problem with server balance for a while, and paying $25 per character to only be able to move to a server to balance it out (says that any unbalanced servers wont be available) is a rip off.

This game needs to die, seriously. It's done so much wrong it's not even funny.

I love how the extras cost more than the monthly subscription.

$25 for a single character xfer, really? The guy that priced the Xoom at $800 must've been hired by NCSoft.

Go NC! Milk that cash cow some more before it totally croaks.

I will say, in whatever paper-thin defence NCSoft has, that they've charged relatively similar amounts in UK. (ie £16 [£1 = $1.50]). But it IS outrageous. I remember them saying it would cost $33 per server in EU way back when.
