Digital Imperial Edition, Deleting Your Character, Losing Special Edition Items?

ImperatorBellusImperatorBellus Toronto, ONPosts: 33Member Common
I wanna delete my game and re-download the client. I have an updated beta and it says ESO Beta in steam when I play it so I rather have the client. Anyway, I accidentally created a character without editing physical features and he has the name I wanna use. If I store my digital edition benefit Items in a bank and delete the character, would those Items be removed?

    Put them in the bank and you'll be fine you won't lose them.

    You can delete the client and redownload it without deleting your character since its stored serverside (on the Zenimax servers).

    Just do it that way to be 100% sure.

     

    Ahh never mind, I misread what you were asking.

    You can rename what Steam displays by the way. Just right click, properties and set the name.

    You will lose those items, just as the recurring login pop up message says.

    Make your new character first, then put your items in the bank and see if the other character has them, if he does then delete the first one (you have 8 slots for character).

    Whoa wait... the bank is account-wide not per character?  I did not notice that. Cool!

    It is account wide - here's one problem though - the treasure map packs cannot be placed in the bank for some reason.

    Individual maps can but not the bundled map packs you get in the mail.

    So you end up losing lots of bank space on individual maps for enemy regions that you can't do til 50+

    Thanks for the info. I was considering just chucking the maps, because there's a lot of them and they are taking up a good bit of bank space. Account wide bank, though... dunno why I didn't even think to check that. Thanks!
