got some slots, but I was hoping to make use of what's already there. guess I'll sell off everything and go on a shopping spree and put that in the acc't bank
That's one solution. What I usually do is place anything not bound or account bound in the account bank (sensible stuff... no ships batteries or anything else easily replaceable), sell the rest then drop the EC in the account bank... then "retire" the character with honors (noone get's deleted... they retire to a well earned life of leisure heheheh). I've retired and started many ID's like this.
