    so far ( im in game for 2 and half years ) shared bank was on 50% discount 2ce and each time i didnt have nuff TP to get it. But it was more than once on 20% and 30% which is kinda fair since it is pricy and handy to have. Tho if they put shared on 50% i will skip tome of learning and get me 2x 10 slots for shared

    Since there's chance of getting items lost using it, i'd say 75% would be fair...

    Or fix that bug at least, please.

    I'm playing DDO 2+ years too and I'm waiting for Shared Bank to be 50% off.
    I've seen Bank 40% off (though never 50% off), but not Shared Bank.

    Maybe you are right, maybe it was 50% off, but I think it was only once and was like 1.5 years ago.
    Anyway, I had some doubts, so I've checked all threads here
    http://forums.ddo.com/forumdisplay.php?f=233
    and there is no 50% off for Shared Bank, unless it's hidden or was removed.

    I mostly play with just one character, I'd like to play my other toons too, but without Shared Bank I'm not going to (so many Seals farmed on the main character, I'm not going to farm them again).

    I guess I'll have to wait 2 more years.

    Cutting off your nose to spite your face much?

    Just get the shared bank NOW and improve your game experience NOW. Waiting 2 years seems so stupid. is like 150 TP (difference between 40% off and 50% off) worth 2 years of waiting and suffering?

    Not everyone can afford it, so NOW is not an option.
    Shared Bank is a lot more expensive thing than the most expensive adventure pack Gianthold, i.e. 1495 TP vs 950 TP.
    (I'm not counting Vaults of the Artificers as true adventure pack).

    BTW, where did I mention 40% off for Shared Bank?

    Thanks, +1 for you.

    It was 02-18-2011, so about 1.2 years ago.

    I don't know Turbine's exact pricing strategy, but from recent data, I would not count on any more 50% sales for account options or packs that players actually are hoping for.

    2nd post was from about 9 months ago (July 2011):

    http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php...75#post3941575

    Which was about 10 months after the September 2010 Turbine daily deals, during their F2P anniversary, where different useful items actually went on 50% sale each day.
    Then the subsequent F2P anniversary in September 2011 had mundane items for daily deals. Big drop-off and huge disappointment.

    Since about 1st to 2nd quarter of 2011, Turbine ceased Turbine Tuesdays and sales greater than 20-30% were few and far between.

    The recent 75% off certain low-level adventure packs was definitely a "stop the presses" moment, but I don't see that happening again for other packs or account options (I hope I'm wrong).

    My advice, for what it's worth, is to wait out for a 25-35% sale. Sure it doesn't feel as good a purchase as if it was 50% off, but you'll realize immediate benefit from in-game enjoyment utilizing the shared bank.

    Tangent, new F2P/Premium players usually get advised to purchase Adventure Packs. I agree. But shared bank is definitely a priority as well, so many items and ingredients in this game are BTA.

    I couldn't find anything about 50% off for Shared Bank there.
    So, 02-18-2011 is probably the last time when Shared Bank was 50% off (i.e. 14 months ago).

    Those 75% really surprised me. I've never intended to buy those most useless packs, so even on 50% I would have skipped them, but I couldn't resist 75%. It was the only way to flush out some of my TP

    DDO is like a business school to me. I'm very impressed how good the marketing system is here.
    I understand why Shared Bank was off so long ago, because if you don't have some adv pack then you just do other quests, but after your bank is full of BtA items you are forced to buy Shared Bank.

    But the thing is that those who can afford Shared Bank already bought it, even long time ago.
    Those who can't afford it won't buy it anyway.
    When it's 50% off then there is higher chance of real cash, because:
    - you might be able to afford some small amount of real money and wouldn't miss a such a good chance to buy it
    - some very good friends might buy it for you as a gift, if such a good price
    - if you have Shared Bank then you are more interested in buying more character slots (at least, as storage toons, and they are a lot cheaper than Shared Bank upgrades)

    I bought shared bank at 50% off on July 28, 2010. It was on sale for one day. Every day in July 2010 Turbine had a different store item at 50% off sale. I never saw shared bank at 50% off since -- granted, since I already had it, I did not look very carefully.

    Earliest post on this thread is from 8/6/2010, which is just after that "item-a-day" sale.

    Heh. I bought Delera's Graveyard on that sale. Mostly to get Voice of the Master for my TR. Never even considered it before TR'ing, and confronting the raised xp requirements.

    On the 26 August 2011 it was possible to combine a 20 % discount on shared bank/adv.packs with a 30 % discount coupon for bulk purchases for a total of -44% (837 points).

    These two offers actually were running in subsequent weeks, but there was (apparently) a short time window when both offers were active concurrently.

    Spent 4057 points that day, bought 11 packs and shared bank.
