Blade and Soul cross server skills

You really don't want us to play more than one char, do you? Normally in games when they put out a new class, there are events specifically geared to help you level that char up,Blade and Soul Gold and rewards for doing so. Here, story, and side quests are the big source of XP for leveling chars, but the XP event is for kills, and dailies, which favours level 50+ chars that have finished the story, and side quests. The other event is also squarely aimed at level 50+ chars doing the daily challenge.

You'd make so much more from your non-whale players that would buy costumes, and other things for their alts if the game wasn't so alt unfriendly. Here are some suggestions:

-Have all chars on your account automatically added to your friends list, and have mailing between them free, or just add a shared account storage tab. Account storage would even give you the chance to sell more storage expansion items.

-Make items used to upgrade equipment Buy Blade and Soul Gold (evolution weapons, powder, XP gems, materials, etc...) account bound, not character bound, and without requiring a cash shop item to send them like costumes do, it could cost gold, as a new gold sink, but not real money.
-Have market restrictions applied to each character, not your account.

-Let us move skills to different hotkeys, as different classes, have equivalent skills, but under different hotkeys (ex: ones that knock dazed/stunned targets into the air) which makes playing multiple classes harder than it should be, as we're effectively fighting the UI, and learned habits.

FFXIV Cross world party finder

Cross world party finder so you can play with friends from other servers.. This is something that was promised before ARR was even launched. Not, "you'll be dumped in with random idiots",FFXIV Gil they specified that you'd be able to part with friends cross server, it was a selling point. Maybe Square will finally solve the overcrowding issue in Balmung and Gilgamesh by allowing world transfers, you did all the time in 11, why is 14 different. Ridiculous I can't transfer or make a c to play with friends for what is a year now.

 Not if the server has near permanent character restrictions in place. I've been trying since April of last year to either transfer a character or make a new one on Balmung or Gilgamesh, and it has not been possible. You can transfer even with the creation lock in place. It bypasses the restrictions. I just transfered to Balmung last month with no issue. Yep, you can transfer for Balmung if you want. That won't fix the overcrowding, though. Just make it worse.

Geneviève Lavoie: You're right about the overcrowding issue, ideally it would be better to have people move to less populated servers. Hence my dilemma in that while I have no problems being on a lesser populated server, all my friends seem to be on Balmung or Gilgamesh.Cheap FFXIV Gil I'll try the character transfer again but it was made clear in the instructions that a transfer would not take place if a restriction is in my place and the option for Balmung or Gilgamesh was greyed out or simply not on the drop down list.

Balmung sucks.. No idea Why anyone would want to transfer there. Actually FFXI had server caps to. Server transfer came in when the game was dropping on subs.If you want your best chance in transferring. Transfer really early or really late when people have barely logged in.
