Before I decided I wanted to learn how to tank and created Moreready, I spent a bunch of time creating low level toons, getting dissatisfied, and moving on to the next. Part of my process is to send all the items to my bank alt and then sell them in the auction house from one convenient toon. In all prolificness I gathered a lot of herbs and leather and ore, far more than more poor little bank could hold in his bags, so I put all these items in his bank vault, and then promptly forgot about them.
Then, today, when I’m going to put away a few items I don’t want to accidentally sell I find my bank nearly full with full stacks of items. Needless to say I was quite pleasantly surprised, very much like finding a wad of cash in that jacket you haven’t worn in forever.
