Removal of Starter Status?

New Player Help and Guides
About how long does it usually take? I can't help but feel I would have been better off just making a new account, not being able to use the auction house and whatnot.
It can take up to 72 hours for all the perks of a full account to activate after you upgrade. And that delay would have been there regardless if you started as a trial or keyed in a Battlechest key directly, if you purchased your code digitally. The only way around the delay as far as I know is buying an actual box copy at a brick-and-mortar store.

You can thank the gold sellers who would "upgrade" using stolen/fraudulent credit cards for that. :\
That's 72 hours at max. Basically however long it takes for them to check everything with your bank. Took me about a day when I upgraded.

Keep in mind that most of the limits are removed instantly. Level cap, skill cap, and gold cap all clear instantaneously. The social options take longer, since they're the ones that can be abused.

My problem is my completely full bank and inventory of mats I need to sell. Guess I'll just have to wait a couple days.
