server change - account bound items / lvl 80-boost

going to start playing some GW2 agian, but wanted to change servers therefor i have a few questions before i delete my character and move.

my current character (lvl 40) that i plan on removing to transfer free, has some account bound items, aswell as the lvl 80-boost i received back when i bought Heart of Thorns and gem store items (gathering tools, costume)

i read something about an account bank, where you can store these items, but how exactly do i do it?

    You can go to any crafting station and click on the bag icon. That is your "Account" bank. You can also go to LA or any racial city and access the bank there. Alternative is any WvW map, look for the NPC with the bag icon over its head.

    Edit: If you don't want to delete the character, some expansion purchases came with one free transfer. Also keep in mind that world transfer is relative to WvW only. PvE is MegaServer based.

  • it is due to WvW i wish to change :)

    but what about the lvl 80-boost? from what i could find about it, its bound to your character and have to be activated on the character that has it in the inventory?

    If its still unused and in the shared slot, it will remain there. If you boosted it's gone.

    Log in and mouse over the boost, it should say whether it's account or soulbound.

    Can I ask a maybe stupid question? If you do the server transfer, does it just basically change your WvW server and nothing else? No need to do anything on characters etc?

    You can't lose or delete the level 80 boost. It's in a shared inventory slot so it's accessible to all your characters and can't be removed from there without using it (which requires several confirmation screens). Even if you delete all your characters it will still be there when you make a new one.

    Servers are only used for WvW. Everything else is shared across all servers in a region. And yes, if you transfer then everything on your account moves with you - all your characters, items, guilds etc. stay the same. Some people will delete characters so they get a free transfer, and then you have to be careful about moving any items you want to save into the bank, but if you pay to transfer you don't lose anything. (And you don't need to rename any characters because names are game-wide.)

    "You can run like a river, Till you end up in the sea,
    And you run till night is black, And keep on going in your dreams,
    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek,
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings."

    @Danikat.8537, I wasn't sure about the shared inventory slot. Couldn't remember if they were introduced during or after HoT. He said it was in his inventory, not sure if that meant shared. Also I don't know of any character boost that is "Soulbound".

  • thanks for the help :) i moved the stuff i wanted to keep into bank and deleted my character.

    lvl 80 boost is indeed in a shared inventory slot so its account wide aswell.
