View Full Version : Suggestion: Specific Bind On Acquire tags

Since the introduction of items that are bound to account, I've had numerous moments of uncertainty with regards to quest rewards.

Back before bound to account existed, the "Binds on acquire" notation in the tooltip was sufficient. Now, however, knowing whether an item will be bound to my character or my account is a factor in my decision-making process, and the non-specific notation no longer does the job (since it's the same message whether an item is bound to character or account). Once I get the item, sure, it's clear. But it's also too late to matter.

So, can we get separate tooltip notations on the quest reward and chest interfaces, like "Binds to character on acquire" and "Binds to account on acquire" please?

There are plenty of things that I would use on another toon if they are BTA, but I would put up for a roll if they are BTC.

Given just recently when I ran my fighter rogue through the new House P quests I'd have chosen something different for the chain reward if I had known Roderic's wand was BtC and not BtA like the other new eternal wand introduced in the Sentinels update. That one was BtA on equip on initial acquire and BtA once upgraded. So how was I to know that in that case Binds on Acquire was to character without looking it all up beforehand? That blasted wand has a 39 UMD. My character it is on won't be able to use it until they can reliably use Heal scrolls! And the epic upgrade? 50 UMD check...

I'd have most definitely chosen a simple piece of BtA twink gear for a new character down the road instead...
