Just wondered, did a search couldnt see this question already,

How exactly can i transfer gold between my own chars. I spent alot on 1 char for crafting and wasnt able to buy trait book.

Mailing yourself doesnt work.

The only solution we found was to mail to someone you know and they mail it back to the char you want. This isnt a great method, requires you to have trustworthy friends playing.

Was i being stupid and missed a real way of doing it.

You can buy the trait book from your other character and bank it to the other.

Bank have a slot for money. It was that way in GW1 as well that you put money into your xunlai chest, which could be accessed by all your characters and take out/put in even more at your leisure.

Yes, banks have a slot for money. What I find a shame though is that your characters share the same bank, yes it comes in handy but it would fill very quickly, Arena Net should make it so only one bank tab is shared between characters, not the whole thing.

I doubt the money space would be filled up quickly. After all, in GW1 1000 plat was the max limit (which was 1 million gold) and characters having 1/10 of this limit each. Also, since the whole money-system was changed into copper-silver-gold, I assume it will take even longer to fill it up.

I'm not talking about the money space, I'm more talking about the space to carry items. However I hope they don't do what they did in GW1 where you could only carry a certain amount of money with you. It was a bit silly realising you had your max limit after farming for more.

Nope. You can't mail things to yourself.

The bank is such an easy feature, why wouldn't you use it? :)

You can always buy more bank slots from the junk you sell in the gem shop.

While the bank is easy enough, and the best (and only) direct way to send money over to alts, perhaps we can hope they take a page out of D3 and make all currency automatically shared across all characters, instead of having to visit the bank, deposit, visit the bank on another character, and withdraw.

I only want a "deposit/withdraw all" option.
It sucks that every time you want to take out or put in your money, you have to type the exact number.
A small issue for me, but it helps when transferring all your gold from alt to alt.

my only complaint is that banks can be a pain to actually find.
