OK, so I'm confused. Which isn't new, but in particular I'm confused about why I'm having trouble using the Exchange to transfer EC from my Fed toon to my KDF toon.

It's simple, right? Put something in the exchange for a ridiculous fee...say, a Small Hypo for 100,123. Then switch toons and buy the item (being sure to buy the one with the strange EC number you put on it).

But here's the thing - the *vast* majority of the time, my other toon just can't seem to find the item for sale. Even when there's only a handful...or even one...such item that does show up in the Exchange.

So...what am I missing? When only 7 Small Hypos show up, with one of them being priced at a million EC (presumably from someone else doing the same thing), why doesn't my hypo show up with the specific EC price I set on it? Or whatever item it is I'm using?

I thought you could use your account bank to transfer EC between Fed and KDF alts? I never did it myself, but is the account bank faction-locked?

Presumably, the OP is F2P, and therefore does not have an accessible Account Bank. Due to the cost of the Account Bank, I'd recommend getting a 1-month subscription instead... costs $5 more, and then you get $5 in Zen back.

For a Gold account you can transfer ec no problem between characters whatever their factions. Not being ever silver I can't say if they have an ec transfer option but the matrix says they have no slots without buying them.

You cant find it anymore because the database is clogged up with crap since F2P, the database or search function cant properly search for an item unless you TOTALLY narrow down the search until you cant narrow it further.

I'm a Silver-level player that played before the game went F2P, so I guess things like the account bank were grandfathered in. Therein lies my confusion. Thanks for clearing it up!

Do not select "all", it does not show everything.

You have to select the sub-category.

you can also use the drop down to search for newly listed items..
and dont use something common like a hypo.. there are 1000s of them and you prob wont find yours.

go gold for one month and it will solve all your problems.

Why don't you just mail over items from one toon to another then sell it no money or zen needed
