    Thinking about deleting my toons....

    To xfer off my current server for a T3 server.

    I am currently on Sorrows Furnace. I moved right before Xfers required a fee to play with some kats who don't play anymore. In the past Ive been pretty on and off again but with the LFG and many addtions to the game since I last played (June 2013) I am really loving the game and I think Im finally hooked.

    My goal is WvW while in the past being on Sorrow's Furnace didn't matter when I didnt take the game as seriously, but now I see that we are in T7. So Im thinking of going back to Dragonbrand where I actually have several RL friends who play on and off. Not to mention its a T3 server which I think is right where I want to be for WvW.

    The catch is that I only have a 50 and a 35 where I'm not making enough money to trade for gems. Spending $ is out of the question as its not a good time for me to spend anything outside of my budget.

    So I learned that I can delete all my toons and with the changes to the currencies Ill basically still keep all my gold, laurels, karma etc as well as anything stored in my bank. I also have the birthday thingies to boost a toon to 20 out the door.

    So it seems like deleting my toons and xfering for free is probably a great option but it just seems odd to me. Like I would never in a million years think about deleting characters that have any amount of invested time. Is it pretty common for people to do this? I feel like I can probably level up new toons pretty fast as I have a better grasp of the game now but I guess Im afraid of burnout. Any advice? Should I do this or is it best to stay where I am and farm gold for gems?

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    It really is your decision, right now it would cost 1800 gems to transfer to Dragonbrand. That's either ~150 gold or $22.50 cash, includes all your characters of course.

    If you do decide to delete your characters, just put anything they have of value in your bank. If it's Soulbound armor or weapons, you can use a transmute stone to put it on a white item to make it Account Bound before banking it. Also, if you have a personal guild bank that will not go with you so take anything you care for out of that and put it in your personal bank.

    You could keep your personal guild bank & just guest back to the old server to loot stuff you want whenever you want.
    Grab all the stuff once on your new server if you want & put it into a new guild storage. Job`s a good `un.

    As for deleting, knock your socks off.
    Levelling is fast enough & at least you`re not at max level with grindfest weapons/gear etc.

    That is incorrect.

    Instead of a pointless "that is incorrect", state what is wrong, otherwise it`s pointless.
    If you mean that perhaps the guild gets deleted when the characters do, they can get someone else to take it over until they make a new one.
    You can guest, so that isn`t wrong.

    Hope that helps!

    Reverse sigh.

    What I posted in the other part covers that...

    Don't know why you are trying to spread account/guild bank misinformation on a game you don't play anymore. You cannot access a guild bank on another world.

    Re-read my second post, it really isn`t that difficult.

    "they can get someone else to take it over until they make a new one.".
    You can arrange to have it sent, you can join their guild & loot, choices are plenty..

    What doesn't seem difficult is the fact that the ANet quote seems to completely contradict what you're saying.

    Unless you have another card up your sleeve, it seems like you're just on the losing side of this one.

    You can give someone else the guild, but guesting to the server won't allow you to get to that bank. The someone else that now owns it could maybe take stuff out and send it to you if you can't clear it out ahead of time via your regular bank.

    If you transfer, you cannot access the old server's guild bank.

    Ew. Glad I found out about this before transferring. My bf and I each have a fully unlocked guild bank on CD. That was a lot of months of work when you only have 2 people gaining influence. Guess I'm stuck. Maybe I'll get lucky and people will decide to server stack CD for the next WvW season (har har).

    But Lane, your server is fine in WvW, just look at this one week I found where you had over 100k points.

    Just spend some of your gold... oh, right... forget it.
