Living out of the bank

    I'm considering a shard transfer, but I don't want to lose the castle i just acquired on Legends, so the character I transfer will be "homeless" (not gonna open another account just to have a house!) Has anyone lived out of the bank before? I figure I'll open a vendor somewhere once I start gathering stuff to sell, and any "trash" I'd gather would likely be unraveled anyway.

    Yea, you can do it fine. Keep the gold on the vendor, for the most part.
    Keep only essentials, sell the rest.
    I think Siege would probably be the place with the most people living out of the bank.

    Also, you have 6 or 7 chars, spread the items throughout. Find a friend that'll let you transfer items between chars at their house, or find a (or multiple) completely non-descript location in the middle of nowhere (make sure all the chars have runes to the location) to transfer items.

    *Remembers the old days when parts of the world looked like Marina's with boats stashed everywhere for the extra storage in the hold*

    I assume it will still work - though you have to refresh the boat regularly and keep the planks locked to avoid theft.

    And yes... it is possible to live solely out of banks and back-packs. I never even had a house on my main shard from launch till AOS was released.
