    Premium Wallet - Is it retroactive?

    This is probably being over-pedantic, but can anyone confirm if the premium wallet upgrade from the store applies to existing as well as new characters?

    I only ask because many store items specify this, however the wallet upgrade only states that it "applies to all newly created characters" so is not as clear as other items. Given it is 1,000 points (seriously guys, when are you going to give up on prices ending in "95" - its not fooling anyone) I don't want to go buying it to find out it doesn't work on my 20 existing chars and will only apply to the 1 High Elf I may (or may not depending on how outrageous the price is and just how extra pointy their ears are) create in the future.

    It's for all your characters, both existing and newly made You might find that not everything goes into your wallet automatically though, stuff that is barterable but still in your vault you'll have to get out manually sometimes before it goes into wallet, for example. But it's definitely one of the best purchases you can make.

    I got the premium wallet after I had created most of my characters and it automatically applied to all my toons so I think you are safe getting it (it's account wide not per character). If anyone knows differently please write in this thread. I did get it for 50 per cent off on a flash weekend sale which "could"? happen again in May or June (last year the weekend sales were on mid May to end May). Not sure if SSG will carry on with store sales but if you are not in any rush perhaps it's best to wait till June? Anyway that was my experience. Hope that helps.

    It will definitely apply to all of your characters on all servers, both existing and future.

    The game only moves items into the Premium Wallet from Inventory, not from vault or shared vault. If you have any of these items in a vault you just need to withdraw them. The instant they hit your inventory they disappear and reappear in the wallet. If the game's running slow at the time you'll briefly see the item's icon in your inventory.

    Thanks to all for the confirmation. I was pretty sure it was just poor wording in the description but wanted to be certain before blowing the points. Will definitely wait until it is on sale though as 1,000 is a pretty big ask for one purchase.

    If you can only afford to buy one thing from the store the Premium Wallet should be it. It's expensive but you can't live without it! Hope it goes on sale this year.

    Just thought I would add to that.

    If the servers are running VERY slowly, the items vanish - and dont appear in your new wallet for a few days.

    Happened to me when moving huge piles of Rusty Tools and Khudzel Tablets after getting the wallet.

    Sale on Premium Wallet any time soon?

    With it being added for each char old and new, it is one of the useful items in the shop. But it has been a while since that the premium wallet was on sale.

    Are there plans for it any time soon? Or is it excluded? Haven't seen it for long months.

    Best way to get it is to go VIP for a month, as it also unlocks lots of other restrictions on all your characters as well.

    Premium wallet is not a benefit of VIP, rather it is a separate purchasable item.

    Really?? I seem to have it on all my alts, yet I have never bought it in the shop. Could it be included in one of the expansion packs?? I have bought a few of those.

    Premium Wallet was never included in VIP unlocks and neither in any of the past expansions as far as I know. I had to buy it separtely even for VIP accounts (all expansions owned in full versions).

    What had been changed some time ago was that more currencies (e.g. festival coins) were integrated in the normal wallet for all players instead of filling up your inventory if you didn't own premium wallet. Perhaps that is the reason it seems like you own premium wallet? Other regional currencies like Westemnet etc will not be inserted in the wallet unless you have the premium one.

    I have been waiting for several months now but it seems that rare sales before have gotten even rarer.

    It was half off at some point not too long ago. It's possible that you have bought it.
    Do you loot common taxidermy objects or do they go straight to your wallet? I have 14 'undamaged winter-worm corpses' in wallet on the new alt I made on a second account to help deeding.

    As others have indicated, it may be that you are just seeing the festival tokens which were added to the normal wallet a while back. I thought the same thing, but after purchasing the premium wallet I was also able to add taxidermy items, reputation items, LI barter items and many other things. Cleared out at least 20 inventory slots on most toons so very much a worthwhile purchase.

    Best way to be sure is just to check in the store. If you can see the Premium Wallet listed then you don't have it.

    No, I definitely have taxidermy drops going into my wallets, yet I have never purchased it in the store; in fact I have only purchased the wallet unlock on one character, the others were unlocked when I went VIP for a few months.

    I noticed the drops going in a fair few months ago, so I wonder if it was related to buying the HD pack when it was on sale late last year; which was about a month before I went VIP.

    .
    The Premium Wallet Upgrade applies to all characters current and future on all servers on the account. If you bought it for one, you bought it for all.

    I think the barter wallet was included as a pre-order bonus at the mid tier and high tier for Mirkwood (or whatever expansion introducted it)... but I could be wrong. I just don't recall buying it either, but I know I pre-ordered several expansions.

    Sorry if I was unclear, all I have ever purchased was an unlock on my original F2P character, to remove the 2Gold limit; other than the freebie unlock gifts, the only things I have purchased in the last year are HD and 3 months VIP; the Premium wallet came from one or the other as far as I can tell, as it didnt come with Rohan or the Quad Pack I bought the year before. Did they give it to VIPs (along with the horse), for the Anniversary??

    OK, fine; but I have it, and I never bought it on its own; so it came from somewhere. And yes I DO have it, I just checked with the store and it isnt showing, so the system knows I have it as well.

    The Premium Barter Wallet NOT the Currency Cap, was and never has been a benefit from VIP, nor a tie in to any expansion. It was introduced with the Great-River region alongside Update 6 and has been roughly the same point price in the LOTRO Store since. It has always been an account-bound 1 time purchase, so it is easy for some people to have forgotten buying it.

    I appreciate what you are saying but I have only been playing 2 1/2 years, and until I went VIP, I had only unlocked the wallet, never used the store to upgrade. Sometime after I bought HD and went VIP I noticed that barter items were going into my wallet, so I assumed it was part of one or the other. TBH, I was thoroughly confused, as I didnt know where everything was going; especially when all my Khudzel tablets vanished while moving them from my vault to my saddlebags; someone suggested checking my wallet, and that was when I realised where everything was going. If I had BOUGHT it deliberately, I would have read what the XP/LP purchase was getting me.

    Maybe it was a lucky system glitch in my favour, God knows it is about time I had some GOOD luck.

    It was half off in a flash sale...a year or so ago. Maybe it was in the fall. My third account needed it so I let it have the wallet too. Barely noticed I'd bought it.
