Transfer toons would be neat

If this is a coding/database impossibility… hear me out on this one…

NPC that sells "Soul Transfusion" or call it whatever. Big cost, like 10M gold or something and when you buy and click 'ACCEPT' it drains all of your toons XP. You then get a scroll (account bound) that when used, gives a toon that much XP.

So, want to change your party around by moving a toon to a new account, BAM. Not happy with your toon after the latest balance changes, BAM. And, gold sink.

I can see the argument that people would just level wizards then move the XP to a "fun" toon but so what? It's a game, games are fun. :)

Totally possible, we've been discussing this type of mechanic lately.

This sound like a great Idea.

Totally second something like this.

x3. Does sound like a pretty cool idea.

Plus, people already have the ability to reroll their stats via MTX, so I don’t see much of a problem there.

There was one thing I've thought about for a while and I'm not totally sure about it, I figured it was worth at least mentioning (apologies if it already has been mentioned in a different post).

Was thinking about how to strike the balance between pay-to-win and legitimate rewards for time put in, but maybe something like a unique looking collectible, "Heirloom Baldric," which could be obtained by a character who has prestiged once and can be bought for gold/coppers (maybe Mtx?) that would be BoE and give +50% additional EXP Gain and maybe like +5% MDM and +5% SDM and only wearable by non 1k or 2k toons.
– Not sure if this would be BoE on the account or the character who equips it?

Maybe something like this would be broken, but it would allow players to put in the time and aim for that goal/reward of getting their first character to 1k, prestige, then get a cool collectible, use the baldric on that toon to continue on their new prestige journey and get back to endgame content faster, or roll a new toon to level with the freshly prestiged in a group.

Obviously, this doesn't address anything for the noob-to-1k grind for a brand new/returning player, but it may be something that can at least spark an idea.

I think it should be able to trade as well in case so scroll form or trinket form seems like a good idea.
