So they open it up to "characters of all levels" but the rate to deposit is at 100g per item, what's the point? Just make it unlockable at level 85 and usable by all characters on that server, or even cross-server. That way, start up an alt on a different server - run to Void Storage and get your heirlooms that were put in there once your other alt leveled out of them.

I don't know about you, but I imagine people come across gear they want to keep a hell of alot sooner than level 85.Imagine that nice caster set from around level 40. Or that nice tanking set from Burning Crusade."Well, then just keep them in your normal bank until then", you might say. And that defeats the purpose of this feature.

I agree that they may come across a set they like sooner than 85, in fact it's probably guaranteed. My original main character - a hunter, still has his Blackened Defias leather gear as it was the first set I actually worked towards getting, and he only hit level 50 the other day (new warlock main for the last few years, lol). However, how many NEW players can afford 100g per item to store something when they are only level 20? Unless they've got a friendly guild or are cheating (read: buying gold) there's no way they can come up with that kind of dough at lower levels.

I agree the price is too high, too. But they did say it wasn't set yet. I guess we will wait and see if "not final" means it drops down to something like 30g, or it goes to 90g.It could always scale, like haircuts, but then you would have level 85's screaming that low-levels get it cheaper by stuffing their storage with things at low-level.

I doubt Blizzard will use Void Storage to share items across your account, unless they plan to let you share soulbound equipment or create a separate storage for sharing. I'd think they'd simply use the mail system to do that like they currently have for cross-faction toons.As for lower level toons, why use void storage when you haven't maxed out your bank? And if you have, why don't you have the money to purchase void storage? Just because the purpose of Void Storage is to store old gear sets doesn't mean that your bank and bags have been deprived of that purpose. As a lower level toon, keep stuff you don't need in your bank. Keep upgrading your bank with more slots and better bags until you are full. And if you still need more storage, the Void Storage is there for you. Why complain that the climate-controlled 250 square foot storage unit is too expensive to store your old jeans when you have a fine closet in your room?
