Hey you guys, I was getting a little low on bag space after the recent unlimited mount whip event, so I decided to take the opportunity to talk about using your mailbox to store items.
Using the game mailbox is a great way to save some backup gold from world boss rewards. As long as you don't click on them, mail messages do not expire for 30 days (drops to 3 days once you view the contents).
This gold comes in handy so that you can purchase things like talents, enchantments, and gem conversions on demand. I have a guildie who saved up so many pages of world boss prizes that some were down to only 1 day left on the expiration ... though that's a bit extreme ...
Space has been a little tight trying to save up soul crystals and things for all the events, so what I did was put all the items I wanted to go to mailbox into my vault:
Then I got kicked from my guild (and returned ^^ lol):
And this is what I have afterward!
A few words of caution:
- Remember to spend all your contribution before asking to be kicked from your guild, or you'll lose whatever you had.
- *Knock on wood* I've never lost mailbox messages, but I've seen a couple people on the forums say they have. I wouldn't risk storing any items so precious that losing them to cyber space will setback your toon a lot (either a lot of time or a lot of money).
