I posted this in stratics, but I'll post it here, too.


First thing's first. (2d Client instructions.) Open paperdoll, hit OPTIONS tab, hit the lower-left tab to set a macro. I prefer to have "-" set as the button usage. This is the button on the extreme upper-right of you keyboard, next to the number keys on the right side. Scroll down in the menu until you get "CircleTrans." APPLY, Okay. Open Options again, hit the "UO" symbol on the left side, under "Misscelaneous" you get the option for "Set radius of transparency." Turn this up to max. APPLY, OKAY.

Second step, buy a backpack from the inn keeper or provisoner NPC. It only costs 15gp in Tram. Go to an city inn that you scouted out earlier and have found out for a fact that very few people if anyone goes there. Turn on circle transparency macro so you can see through the walls. Drop the bag in a spot which might be obscured by a wall. Turn off the circle transparency. Did the bag "disappear" from normal sight? If not, try again. Make sure nobody sees you doing this. Tell no one what you're doing. If the bag "disappears," you've found a sweet spot. Now turn on circle transparency again. Pick up the bag. Logout.

Login your other character. Park him/ her in the same inn area as the first one. Login the first char. Put whatever you want to transfer in the hiding bag. Hide it as instructed above. Log out. Login the recipient character. Take the bag. Congratulations, you've just learned the most important skill in the game!

Places to NEVER do this: Britain City West. Too many idiots in this city. If you must transfer in Britain, go to EAST Britain, find an inn there. Try it in a top secret location that only you know about. Never tell other players your hiding spots.

Or if you got your own house, put your items in a secure chest and pick it up with the other char ;) I mean.. Who dosen't have a house? :) (if your answer is no and you play on europa, come see me for a free 7x7)

Who doesn't own a house ... well easy to answer:
I do own a house of course, but only on my main shard, cause if I am not mistaken, every account is only allowed one house. So if I play on another shard, I have to use this method.
Or did they change this, and I am allowed one house per shard?

The biggest problem with this over the last few years is the addition of the item tags where you can press hotkeys and it will show anything anywhere on screen with you, hidden by circle or not...That's why I always stealth around and check banks and inns for items in the corner or on a wall.... *nods sagely as she sees: a bag*

Merion: Got me there. You can still only have one house per account + 1 on the test shard. :)

You could try this method, Stand out side the Brit bank and spam I need to transfer some very important items to my secondary character and i need some one to watch the chest for me. Then go in side the bank and put the items in the metal chest in the back room. run to the inn and log out. Then log in your second character and run to bank your items will be waiting for you in the chest. be sure to tip the player that was watching your items 10 gold pieces.

I solve this issue in blunt fashion. Two accounts, two PC's....hand item from one character to another, log out, relog with new character, and hand back. Obviously not an option for everyone, but the absolute best way I've found if you can make it work.:)

Good thing I copied the original post to the common FAQ.
Guys, this was intended to be a helpful topic thread. Facattac provided information that was as safe as possible, given the subject. I myself used it in times past, and had to be taught. Please refrain from deriding that attempt to help.
