Returning Player, Parcel System?

    Guys,

    I am returning and have a 60 Mage that has lots of gear usable by a Level 1 caster. I'd like to re-roll necro for solo/money making purposes.

    I am on the free version, so I don't have access to the shared bank. Am I able to send these said items to my character (on the same account) through the parcel system with a free membership?

    Also, how much plat can I carry? I read that it is 100 plat per level with a free account. So that means at level 50, I could carry 5000?

    Thanks in advance.

    Of course I read that link, Wolfe.

    It does not tell me stringent details of how I go about using the parcel system or whether my theory on gold is correct. I played this game years ago, not as of recent.

    Do you have answers?

    Why not try sending some junk item through the parcel system to see if you can.

    Well i havent use the ingame mail system yet (parcel) i seen one in Neriak though and i do know that F2P and Silver Accounts wouldnt be able to use them except receiving mails. Have you find a parcel npcs yet? If so what is the problem??

    f2p cant send parcels, however if you ahve a lvl 60 you made years back, you can have 500pp per level not 100. all old accts got grandfathered into silver instead of bronze.

    a way around the shared bank is to go buy a houseplot and house iwth a closet, put your new toon as coowner, and deposit your stuff into the closet , then withdraw with the other toon

    ...or just ask some nice person to hold stuff for you. ;)
    Or do like in '99, drop&camp!

    Does drop and camp still work ?

    I tried that with some temp items the other day and they were poofed when I logged on another toon ..must try it again !
  11. Drop and camp works just as well as it ever did. You generally want to be in a very out of the way place. After all it is entirely possible that someone could have walked by; saw something on the ground and picked it up and thought hey I could use that and left not thinking anything of it.

    And in some places NPCs like to tidy up after you.

    drop and camp worked great for me.. just have to go to one of those very out of the way places where folks won't be running by while you are gone.

    And Shadowhaven, and a few more zones from around that time.

    Create yourself a one account guild. Lots of space in there, 200 storage spaces. Easy to transfer items between characters then. And you get the stones that gate you to other places. I have several, across 3 paid accounts.

    Hmm... can a Free or Silver account create a guild?
  18. Geroblue Augur

    I think silver can, but I know bronze can only join.

    Just do an alt-g in game. If the guild creation window shows up, then you can.

    You need to be gold to send parcels, and i really havent liked the drop and switch toons for a long time, there is of course the option to makea new bronze account so you can have a mule or 2, and trade gear that way. Also if you are starting a new toon on the one account, could make the mule a partner, wizard or cleric with merc tanks could help gain XP, assuming your comp can handle 2 up at a time.
