Quite several things are still not well known about Shard Shields, the new 14th Year Veteran Reward so, any question "might" become moot whenever these questions will be eventually answered and the way these new items work, clarified or fine tuned as their design goes. Among 3 other points which bug me about this new item (their representation of a given shard which I would better see as variable daily, and not be fixed, that the Shard Shield can work off of a bank box and not require to be locked down in a home and that pack animals carrying items can be transferred along even though they are not stabled), there is a 4th point that relates to the question asked in this thread and that is, the transferability of the actual Shard Shield to another account (which is entirely different than the monthly generated account bound transfer token.....). I will explain my reasoning better. This new Reward is intended to be claimed by players who have been playing, maintaining their account as active, for 14 long Years. Now, in that very many Years, I would imagine and think that such long time Veteran players would have all 7 characters on their main home shard, well developed. And I am not talking about skills and stats, at least skills can be soulstoned, I am talking about being scrolled up with multiple Legendary powerscrolls, having learned a number of recipes and all that. Meaning, that for a 14th Year Veteran player, it would be a very hard choice, I would imagine, to delete any of the 7 characters on their main home shard to make room for that account of 1 slot for transfers. This, of course, "if" the Shard Shield was to also be account bound as well as the one per month generated transfer token which is still unclear and among those still unanswered questions... So, "should that be the case" (i.e. that Shard Shields were to also be account bound along with the generated one per month transfer tokens) I would find it a contradiction to intend an item for usage by a long time 14th Year Veteran player who most likely has all 7 characters fully or well developed on their main home shard thus not allowing any of them to be deleted thus wasting all the Legendary Powerscrolls and Recipes learned already, should such a Shard Shield Veteran Reward be only usable by that 14th Year account because it was account bound. "If" instead, while the one per month generated transfer token would indeed stay as account bound, the Shard Shield could be transferred to another account other than the 14th Year Veteran account that claimed it, then at least those 14th Year Veterans who have multiple accounts, without harming any of their 7 characters on their main home shard, could claim the Shard Shield on their 14th Years old account, transfer it to their other lower age account and use that other account to then generate the one per month account bound transfer tokens for their transfer needs as that other account might not have all 7 characters fully or well developed as their 14th Year account. So, I wonder, is there any 14th Year Veteran player out there who, on their main home shard does not have all 7 characters fully or well developed who have already learned a good many 120 Legendary Powerscrolls, Recipes and all that and would thus be a big sacrifice to be deleted ?
