    Does vault space carry over to new house????

    So after the update I decided to move 3 of my deluxe houses to the same neighborhood as my Kin house, I had already emptied storage in case of a problem during update and so I could make up my mind if I wanted to pay the new storage costs. (wasn't sure if the storage I had already purchased would be grandfathered in or we would have to re-buy it all. So once they fixed the problem with storage I decided to keep my houses/storage I had already paid for but I wanted to move my houses as I said earlier...when I abandoned/re-bought the first house, all went well and I had all my storage and my decorations all went to the new storage when I opened it. A few bound items went to alts escrow accounts. No Problem. The next house I abandoned/re-bought, I had 15 of my original vault space but had to re-buy all the rest up to the 60 you can buy with in game gold...and the same happened with the next house as well, so HERE"S THE REAL QUESTION: DOES OUR HOUSE VAULT SPACE TRAVEL WITH US WHEN WE BUY A NEW HOUSE? I thought I had read somewhere with the implementation of space being able to be purchased with mithril coins that our space would travel with us if we decided to change housing areas. I have searched the forums and can't find this info anywhere now. I know personally if it doesn't then I sure wont be buying any space with mithril coins. I called Turbine and they werent able to find that answer for me so they recommended I ask here in hopes that someone might have an answer for me

    Ps I have been playing 5+ yrs. I am aware that vault space did not carry over prior to HD, I have moved a couple times already..lol but we didnt have to use MITHRIL COIN to buy space then. ;0

    If you read the housing chest changes thread you will see that I tested changing houses during beta and storage does carry over.

    Ok I didnt see that, but I can tell you for sure it didnt carry over for me on 2 of my houses when I changed so I would caution others to wait a bit if they have a move in mind and I will report my issue as a a bug! Thanks again for the answer...

    Interesting... I explicitly tested this in one of the builds and it carried over... You might put in a ticket asking about this.

    ****Update I've amended the House Chest Storage thread to put this issue into question. Could we get a Blue Name to please comment on this?


    ****Update 2. Asking around on Landroval and people have moved houses and had their storage space retained.

    I just checked it out, and for me it did indeed carry over with a full vault.

    Care1369--the issue may be that you emptied your vaults. A few friends and I completely lost the storage we'd purchased prior to the update, and it seems that the lack of items in the vault was the problem (these were for recently purchased houses, I do not know if that is relevant). Was your purchased storage space there in both houses before the move?

    No matter what, I hope you have bugged it and send a support ticket online for both accounts. I was unable to get assistance in game or out, but if the reports come in they will be aware of this issue.

    Yes I had bought all storage on all houses I owned, but I also emptied all my stuff into alts just before update just in case I decided not to keep houses after HD release. Houses that were fully decorated (which put 30+ items into escrow) carried their storage over, but a couple were fairly new, not completely decorated and those are the ones I had to re-buy all my storage on (which was a little over 300g). I have put in tickets on each ad bugged as well, but I doubt Turbine will reimburse for just game gold. If I had used mithril coins to upgrade storage I would definitely be more upset...

    Right there is your issue. There is a BUG that if items were not in storage even if you bought the storage pre HD that the storage space would be lost. You need to bug and put in a support ticket. I had this happen on a FTP account of mine.
