Can one create a NCB before NUB expires ? (in General)

Sickone January 28 2008 8:49 AM EST

Sure, no CB$ bonuses, but higher XP bonuses, and a few weeks of leftover "free daily BA" (if they still persist after retiring the "original" NUB char)... sounds more or less attractive, to me anyway.

So, is it at all possible ?

Oh, never mind, the check mark button for NCB is disabled.
Silly me, ignore the thread...
*shame* :(

Actually, you can create a NCB before your NUB is over.

However, you will get the NUB bonus until it expires and then you will receive whatever is left of your NCB.

The reason your NCB button is disabled is probably because you checked the NCB button when you created your second character.

I'm quite sure I didn't do that (select "NCB bonus" for my other, now-retired character).
The NUB was auto-applied to that retired character, both the retired one and the "main" expire on the same day, even if second was created a lot later.

no, but if someone transfers one to you, it will work as you describe

Thanks Jon. I wasn't aware of that change.

"no, but if someone transfers one to you, it will work as you describe"

Hmm, what if the character was not a NCB at all, would the NUB bonus still apply ?
Or does it only apply to NCBs and not regular characters ?

NUB always applies on the characters you create, for the duration of NUB

Any characters you create will have the NUB for the extent of your NUB period (4 months.)

Any NCB sent to you will have the NUB until your NUB period ends or until its NCB period ends, whichever comes first.

If a normal character is sent to you, it's just normal.
