Just to let you know I tried this last night with success. I sent a boa chest from my warrior to my hunter on another ptr server. I will say though that it appears the server list for testing may be limited, however once I figured out which server to send it to I had no issues I would love to see this feature in game before the expansion allowing for people to level characters on new servers in case they are wanting to change servers before the expansion.

Will this be out on Tuesday then? I am deeply looking forward to it.

It gives me the opportunity to level some characters I want to level before i get the boost to 90. :)

Will this include things like stuff that drops from the timeless isle?

Here's hoping 5.4.2 is delivered quickly. Would love to experience another server's culture.

Sorry for the noob question, but just how does one acquire a BOA item (not timeless isle) on the PTR? On my regular toons I have full sets of cloth, leather (2), mail (2), and plate (1) so this feature would be really super.

And will the enchants stay on them?

So if I wanted to mail something to the server Bleeding Hallow, what should I type?

"Character-Bleeding Hallow"
"Character-Bleeding_Hallow"
"Character-BleedingHallow"

The reason I ask is because whispering people in battle grounds was originally problematic with the space so it was changed to no space.

I've sent a few Heirlooms from blackdragon to skullcrusher and it works :) but, i'm seeing some Heirlooms disappear when I log on the next day. For example, rootwig on skullcrusher (level 11 mage) was totally decked out w/ my blackdragon heirlooms for a cloth caster but now he has nothing. you can see he has the robe, shoulders, helm,etc here: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/skullcrusher/Rootwig/simple

i've opened a ticket so I hope they can help.

BTW, the tan's did not magically reappear back on the blackdragon sender. They seem to have just vanished into some strange futuristic wow void called a database that my primitive orc brain can yet understand... :/

about god damn time. Account bound never was worded right because really it should have be called server bound. Blizz got so many tickets about that when heirlooms first came out.

This is fantastic, I was going to transfer my character back to my old server because of the account bind items I had for my alts. Thank you Watcher this is awesome


Consider yourself lucky... I have transferred characters to other realms that I would not have, had I been able to just move heirlooms. Total waste of money for me, now.

What about a separate field to enter the realm name? Then you won't have to deal with a million tickets from people who don't know how to format the address by putting in the -dash- between the target and the realm name, or forgetting to capitalize. Maybe it could be a drop down realm list so it is idiot proof as far as spelling goes. Though I suppose it just would breed another type of idiot who can't select accurately from a drop down list.

Just to be clear, can I send Soulbound items between cross-faction characters ? For example a piece of armor or Motes of Harmony ?
