Thread: Shared bank for characters on account

    Default Shared bank for characters on account

    Just a suggestion.. I think it would be a huge improvement to the game platform if we were able to have a few dedicated bank slots for shared items & coin that all characters on our account could access. Reason being that I would absolutely love to create an alt character of the opposite faction. The questing would be a new experience as well as the environment, content, etc. I am greatly detracted from doing so at this point - however - because that alt character would be unable to use the benefits & skills of my main character, just like an alt of the same faction would. I think if we had a shared bank it would open up a lot more option. I have already added this suggestion in-game via the ? tab, but thought that a forum thread may be a more appropriate place for such a suggestion. Thanks for your time.

    My bad - I was maneuvering through forums and may have accidentally posted this to general rather than suggestions... sorry for the mis-post if I did ....way too much cough meds!

    I'm absolutely in favor of shared vault space. However, I do NOT believe they should be shared between characters of different factions. There's too much "wiggle room" for abuse...need those "hard to find" artifacts from enemy territory? No problem, just bank 'em and hand 'em over to your other-factioned alter ego. Nope, can't go along with that.

    Only agree with shared space between the same account/server/faction.

    Same.

    Either add another special slot in your bank where you can put 1 bag that is common to all characters on that server who are the same faction.

    Or alternatively, make the last bag slot the common one, so you have to spend some real money to get that feature, if you are really feeling nasty.

    Seems to me that you are willing to bypass a HUGE portion of game content all for some silly little artifact hunting? That just seems like a small thing to hold back so much more option for continued interest in the game. I am certain that there would be a way to adjust the artifact spawn locations if that is the one thing holding it back....

    One item I thought about after leaving the forum: it would be very simple to add this feature to the game and still preserve the items that you fear will be exploited. To implement a lock that prevents items like artifacts from entering the shared vault. There are locks to prevent the trade of soulbound items, it would be the same concept.

    Way to trivialize opposing opinions.

    I used the artifact-swapping as an example. There are plenty of other ways such a cross-faction shared space could be used to short-circuit the boundaries Trion has established between the Guardians and Defiant. Armor, crafting materials, mounts, etc. would all be fair game. Even the ability to swap coin between factions could be feasibly abused.

    My position stands: cross-faction sharing of any kind is just going to be problematic. Aside from that, I'm in agreement with your original proposal, and have posted a number of times to that affect.

    Thanks.

    Shared Bank space is a great idea

    +1 as long as shared between characters of the same faction.

    On top of it, I suggest having several shared bank slots (number to be discussed), with an unlock system similar to the one already in place to unlock regular (non-shared) bank slots, in particular:
    1) the more shared bank slots are already unlocked, the higher the price to unlock the next shared bank slot
    2) the need to fill the slot with a bag once unlocked
    That would add some cash sink in order to counterbalance the fact you are no longer paying the item postage to transfer items between characters.

    And, obviously, a safety check to ensure soulbound items cannot be deposited in those slots.

    I agree, but only for same Account/Server/Faction. I don't see the need for there to be any unnecessary 'unlocking' of shared bank abilities in game, just allow it.

    I would definitely like shared, same faction, bank slots.

    How about not shared bank slots for items across factions but shared plat.
    Can't really abuse that.

    Shared bank slots have been one of my favorite banking options since EQ1.

    Shared bank and making all Bind on Pickup gear Bind to account. That way it can be transferred to your other characters. This includes plaques and things like Otherworldly sourcestones etc.
