    Default Loyalty dimension items

    Currently the loyalty dimension items are bind on pickup, which means you can't even use them in alt's dimensions. Does anyone else find this really annoying? My alt (currently) only has stash dimensions, and I have no use for the soulbound items at this moment. So I just tuck the somewhat rapidly growing pile away in a corner of one of the stash dimensions, which hurts just a tad. I would be very happy if they would at least be account bound instead of soulbound, so we can use them

    One of the reasons they do things the way they currently do (with loyalty items being available on the shop after you've used the allotment), is so you can't just make unlimited alts, send your main the goods, then delete the alt. But you are right, storage is quickly becoming an issue, even with the minion return adjustments being made for dimension items (putting them in the star bags).

    Do I like it? Not really, but given that we used to not be able to get duplicates of the loyalty items, I'll take it. As it is, I'm wishing for a similar arrangement with the CE items, because one puny little mermaid isn't going to cut it.

    Hmm, I see your point. There are more items you can't get duplicates of, which can be frustrating. And I totally agree, one mermaid is not enough! I guess I could just sell the soulbound stuff, but that seems like a total waste at only 1s per item. And should I decide to start building with my alt as well, then it'll hurt if I did sell them. Oh well, I guess I'll just have to deal with it Let's hope we get more storage possibilities then

    There really does need to be more consideration to all dimension items in pack form (collectors editions, lockboxes, loyalty) - especially statues - being pairs.

    The mermaid is so gorgeous!

    Yes, I hear this mythical mermaid is a fishing drop in Draumheim. *Pulls off waders*

    I've seen it on PTS, though, and it's not exactly the same as the one you get from the CE. The differences aren't great, but big enough that if you put them side by side, you would immediately notice that they aren't identical. My OCD just wouldn't let that fly, and I might start twitching, then grumbling, then fishing some more, then cursing because the stupid mermaid refuses to drop.

    I feel the same as Cailynn about the soulboundedness of the items, but your explanation makes perfect sense, Feendish. Trion aren't going to allow unlimited altmaking to get round restrictions with the free items.

    I wonder, though, whether they could relent enough to allow the loyalty items to be free once per account, (not per character), so that all subsequent items have to be bought on the store, but can be purchased and/or placed by any alt on an account. I honestly think most would prefer that rather than non-dim-making alts having piles of stuff that's just a waste. It wouldn't be as bad (or generous, depending on how you look at it), as allowing the loyalty items to be sold on the AH or given to friends.

    Would that work, do you think?

    Ahhhh...gotya Feendish. Yeah...that would not be good at all...understand completely. By the time I got to the AH it had already gone, so didn't know there was a difference.

    Good to know thanks

    @kiwi...yeah seemed awfully cheap to me actually lol

    Just for myself, I build on enough characters that I don't mind the loyalty items being free per character, as opposed to the whole account. Yes, it's an annoyance to have to log back and forth to place loyalty items, but I think I would spend a whole lot more if my building alt could place (and pay for, when in my view loyalty items have already been paid for) all those items I use the most.

    As for the alts that don't have dimensions, such as the vast majority of my tourists, I either stick the loyalty items in a loyalty dim, or leave them crated up. With all the BoA stuff I already get every time I make a new character, it takes longer to take everything out of the mail and the loyalty store than get out of the tutorial zones. The one good thing about having a lot of loyalty are the big bags that come with it.

    The thing that really irks me are the Shimmersand Taverns and how they don't stack. You get two of them, and they're the same thing, but they take up two slots. Same thing with the Enormous Autumn Trees.
