PTR and live are two different things though. But my main statement is this: Now they just need to make it so you can send money cross-server. Nothing sucks more than starting on a new server with no gold. Only way currently is to shell out real cash to realm transfer a toon.
Oh my God, I can die now.
INB4 transfering cross realm is something like a 5 doller fee per item or mail. gotta make moar money blizz.
This is how they could do it.1. When you purchase an heirloom.. it generates a code that is stored in the same way your collector edition stuff is stored. No matter what server I create a character on, I always get an ingame mail with my two pets.2. There should be an ingame NPC in major city called 'family butler' and the codes should be used to populate his vendor list.
How many people actually have multiple WoW accounts under the same battle.net account, let alone multiple WoW accounts period? Enough to need this change? And the characters would still need to be on the same realm anyway....it really does smell like April Fools, guys.If it is true, one can hope that Ashelia is right and it's a step towards making cross-realm heirlooms possible.
Holy crap.YES! Now I can start leveling alts on other realms!Highly doubtful that you can transfer it to other servers. More like you can transfer between multiple WoW accts on one Battle.neti just tried to send something to a diff server on ptr, it didnt work so you seem to be rightThat would be counter intuitive as generally its a bad idea to have multiple accounts tied to one battle-net why would blizzard encourage multi-boxing?
Hell yeah! About time! Now I can utilize characters on realms I no longer regularly play on for something other than collecting virtual dust.
And there was much rejoicing.Understatement of the year.postCount++, but only to express my own feelings about this development.
More like you can transfer between multiple WoW accts on one Battle.netThis is still an interesting point. Multi-boxers farming heirloom gear on a single 80/85, and farming it out to their linked accounts, maybe? That'd be one advantage of transferring between WoW accounts on a single Battle.net account. Not to mention Recruit-a-Friend - I'd be interested to see how much money Blizz makes from it.WOOT! I can finally get 20% more experience on my Barbarian!Lol.
Well I can see the both accounts tied to the same Battle.Net account. This is more then likely to happen with a Parent/Child or Husband/Wife then with anything else.Blizzard made as all Kalu'ak and Wowhead gave use Tacohead.I don't think Blizzard would be that cruel to make something up like this and then Screan April Fool's. However I can see use becoming Murloc's for a day. (Also wondered what a Murloc Pally would look like)
are they going to be able to transfer across realms or is it just a name change?
Think it's more just cross bnet accounts for now, think they're still working out the kinks on cross-server mail.
Resubbing in 4.1 because of this, thanks Blizz! :D
They are already bind to server. (yes cross faction, been that way for a long time) Bind to battle.net account would make them finally and LITERALLY Bind to account. Which since people cant figure it out, means cross realm. If its bound to your b.net account then you can mail it where ever you want. Thats the entire point. Use your head guys come on now.This.
i smell a rat
...it really does smell like April Fools, guys.It isn't April 1. Blizzard does not do April Fools early.
My Bioball is going to wreck Colossi with this now!
Or maybe they're just updating the current BoAs so that they can be shared between multiple accounts that are tied to a single Battle.net account. Making it so you don't have to purchase the same BoA for every individual account. Allowing them to be mailed, and possibly traded, between characters on separate accounts that are on the same Battle.net account.It might have nothing to do with mailing them from one server to another... might.
Wtf, we can send the item on our starcraft 2 account ? :)
So I read the article and I was like =DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD then I read the comments and the official patch notes and I was like DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD=. Send:Xrandomcharacter-Servername or just fricken copy my heirlooms and mail them to every one of my characters. Come on already Blizz. This isn't that goddamned difficult. Step up to the plate.
