Neverwinter is looking to sell tokens for the ability to unbind all of your character’s equipment. Some players will be able to buy these tokens with real money, while others will have a chance at winning them.
One of the unbreakable rules of MMORPGs is that once utilized, bind-on-pickup or bind-on-equip items cannot be transferred or sold to another party. Because of… magic? It’s attached to you like glue. Magic. That’s the direction we’re headed with this. Developers did not make this choice on the spur of the moment.
Neverwinter has a plethora of BOA and BOP gear, as do other MMOs. However, unlike other MMOs, Neverwinter now includes a mechanism to unbind bound things – and it involves magic rather than money. Cryptic will be pleased to sell you and your pals unbind tokens on the Zen Market starting November 11th. There are limitations on what may be unbound, as well as variable charges per item.
“We’re beginning with a small handful of unbound things and will extend the possibilities as time goes on,” Cryptic stated. “Some objects, such as equipped mounts and companions, will not be able to be untied owing to the way they function, but most other items can be unbound.”
Unbind tokens are also falling as treasure in the game, according to the company.
