Lets change the shared bank Vault

The vault with its shared bank accross all chars on the account, is not much used (theory)
Atleast I dont know anyone actually paying for this, month after month.

I think the system with shared bank vault  in addition to each chars own bank account is a brilliant idea. So I say, lets change it, make it available for all without the payments, that way it might actually be used.
The system is already there, just a small change required!

If you want a win-win scenario you will add the fee of ingame gold, automatically drawn from accounts gold repository. Then it will be usefull and a working gold drain for the game.

  • Imagine a bank account with potions,bolas,orange petals,bandages - pvp equipment shared among all your characters on the account!
  • Or a worker character with all its imbuing resources, ingots, leather and boards shared among all the crafting characters on the account!

Together we make the game Great again!

    Isn't this what a house is for?

    Even though there are houses people still use Banks, dont they
    The idea is to take a system that is not much used due to the cost mechanism, and make it into a usefull system people would use.  Besides, when was last time you bid on a vault that was not paid for?

    i think it's for players who play on multiple shards, where you can only have 1 house per account. You can argue 300 sovereigns is cheaper than paying for a 2nd account, but only if you have less than 125 items you need to store.

    I used it when I played the free endless journey account with its very limited storage.  But, I filled it up very quickly.  If I could rent a box for a reasonable amount of gold, I would probably would.  Storage is a problem for me but I don’t anticipate creating a second account at this time.

    I am in favor of apartments / storage units. A single secure room with limited storage such as 1008 items. One per account per shard.

    Late at night - thought he meant shared over toons on same shard.

    But, I'm fairly certain they would never allow that to be shared across all shards - it would make the character transfer tokens pretty much useless.

    I'm guessing cross shard shared storage is technically almost imposable. Look at all the issues and delays transferring even to test shard.

    To be clear about my suggestion of apartment / storage unit.  It would not be for moving stuff between shards but for storing stuff on the same shard.  Similar to a house.  But primarily for people who have a house on one shard but need shared storage on another shard. For example I have a house on Pacific and a keep a ship on Atlantic so I can share stuff between toons there. I would like to dry dock that ship and have a storage unit so I do not have to log into Atlantic every few days to renew the ship.

    Isn't that what bank vault is for?
