Just a quick post to mention what I see as a need for this functionality to be added to our accounts.
It has been suggested that account-wide Bank Slots are on the way, and that bound items will NOT be retroactively shareable between toons but that newer items may be.
While unfortunate, I do get that there are tech limitations to contend with--so I can live with that.
What I would like to see, however, is for Account-wide banking slots to manage ALL currencies in the same way that Fleet Banks manage EC now. After all, if I spend the time (or in the case of Lobi C-Points) grinding Dilithium, GPL, EC, Etc. for multiple toons that I own, then what difference should it make which of my toons spend them?
I do understand the desire to limit specialized currencies (Lobi and GPL) to the player and not have them tradeable, but I feel I should be able to access such from any of my toons--accross factions.
Ideally, I would also VERY MUCH like to see other types of what amounts to in-game currencies (such as Crafting Materials, EDC, and the Defera Craftings Mats), converted into genuine currency as well, and further, also made Account-bound instead of Character-bound, (at least in the case of EDC and the Defera Mats).
Currently, these specialized crafting materials are really just currency anyway, so why make them take up space in my personal inventory and be isolated as they are now. Granting, of course, that Crafting Mats and EC are currently the only directly tradeable (between players) versions of those currencies.
The whole selling point on converting Badges and Marks to Dilithium was to reduce the number of currencies in-game, however, with the addition of Lobi, it is clear that we are going to have multiple currencies in-game no matter what, AND several of them (with the addition of EDC and the Defera Mats), take up space that could be put to better use in my opinion.
I know that this has been discussed before, however, I have not come across a post dedicated to the idea.
I also cannot see how making these or any currencies in Star Trek Online Account-bound could possibly hurt the game, but it would definitely add value to STO for those players who have multiple toons and spend the time in-game to earn these rewards. Let us do what we want with them within the limitations of our own accounts.
In a nutshell, please Cryptic; Can we have account-wide access to the product of our time spent gathering resources in game?
I do hope to see account wide item and currency banks. ANd it would be nice to make certian items (ophidian cane, Borg Tech, and other random but bind on pick-up) account wide and retoactively changed.
