Simple solution, to a supposedly "hard to implement" problem.

New vendor in your faction's main city, prolly beside the guild vendor since it would help newbies find it.. this vendor sells BOA's to players, once they unlock it.. we already know you guys can track stuff via the account as a whole, ie pets that are mailed every time a new toon is created... so raise the cost of heirlooms by like another 1k justice points, and once they are "unlocked" by any level 80+ character then they are available to ANY character on that account, on any server, via the vendor... add a nominal gold fee, like 500-800g or more per piece.

You get a points sink, a gold sink, and the ability for people to play w/e server they feel like playing with friends/family..


Though you guys will prolly never implement it because you are too busy attempting to bleed players like stuck pigs by forcing people to pay for character xfers on their level 10 alt if they want to hang out with friends on a different server.

Yeah, that's sort of a solution, but not a very good one. The accusation you're making (in the OP and subsequent replies) is that since we're not implementing a bad but easier solution, that we have no intention of ever implementing the correct one.

We do intend to implement the correct solution, of being able to mail BoBA items to any and all characters on the same Battle.net account. That's the right way to go about it. Whether you believe that will ever happen or not is another matter.
