I know that i can upequip a boff, and strip him of all equipment, then do a face to face trade with a friend and have them train him. But is there a way to do this and send the boff to one of your own alternates for training? I have a tac, eng, and sci alternate, so i should be able to train just about any skill if i can find a way to do this.

I searched the forms for an answer to this but did not fond an answer to this. Doesnt mean it hasnt been answered, i just didnt find it.

Thanks!

You can mail it to yourself.

Unless I am mistaken, boffs once commisioned can't be mailed. Gonna need someone else to help you get them trained.

This. You cannot mail commissioned officers, it throws an error. You'll need another person with an open slot to do this, and I've done it several times. Trade from one toon to person A, then log off/log on other toon, person A trades boff to that toon, train them, then reverse the process.

Your own commissioned boffs would be a good candidate for this new account shared bank, so you could skip the middleman.

Yeah, i had tried the mail thing before, and saw that was not possible. This would be a great feature of the account bank. Hopefully when it is fully implemented and debugged it will be possible.

I'm personally hoping they expand on the shared bank system so this is possible..

Yep, people have been asking for a method to accomplish this for a very long time.

The account level bank is new. Players have been asking for a method to train BOFFs with their other account characters for a long while though. One of the better received past suggestions were data training pads you could create and then mail or sell. I was just giving your suggestion a nudge in the hope Cryptic will expand the usability of the new account bank.

Here's an alternate skill training process that works. Create a F2P account. Trade your BOs to the F2P toon. Log out of toon you originally traded with & log into your alt toon. F2P toon trades to alt. Train BO & trade back.

You may have to lvl up the F2P toon depending on the rank of the BOs you are training. A toon can't accept a BO if the BO's rank is higher than the toon. Given how easy it is to lvl, you might consider lvl your F2P toon to VA. Got more time on you hands? Lvl a Eng, Sci, & Tac in a F2P account & you can trade BOs to the F2P account for training. This last process eliminates one trading step.
