    Default Which things are *intended* to be tradeable?

    REX are of course tradeable.

    There's other things in the shop, though:
    • Transfiguration baubles.
    • Profession slot increases.
    • Character slot increases.
    • Race change tokens.
    • Faction change tokens.
    • ... and lots of others.

    Is there any guidance as to which of these are tradeable, and which of them are supposed to be tradeable? I admit to having been surprised to find that the profession slot was able to go on the AH.
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    My guess is all boosts and services wouldn't be tradeable.

    Stuff like profession/char/race/gender would also not be tradeable.

    Stuff that is already available in the open world and stuff such as the lockboxes and lockbox keys I would assume would be tradeable.

    If it has the "gifting" icon on the far right-hand side when browsing a particular item in the store then it's tradeable.

    They're all listed as "Bind on pickup", so if you were able to put the Trade Skill Extension on the AH, I guess you should bug report it.

    It's tradeable in the way that you can give it as a gift yes, but it doesn't mean you can put it on the AH.

    None of the items listed should be tradeable, and I believe Daglar has already taken care of most of them.

    Most "credit only" purchases are not intended to be tradeable, with the only exception off the top my head being lock box keys (since the same item also drops in the world...we didn't want any weird stacking issues to occur).

    If this Profession slot increases isnt tradeable, theres a problem.
    I was able to buy alot of these, and as they are an item in your backpack to use, i ended up with one more than i could use. There is no way to trade it back.

    Maybe at least make them account bound, so can send to another character.

    I totally agree with this. stuff like this should be at least Bind to account for this issue if you need to use them. since they are a actual Backpack item. Any chance that this could be made possible?

    Makes sense.

    In which case, they should probably be BtA, not BtC.
