NCB's can be sold, and time remaining stays with char, but NUB's stay with the person and never leave, every char you make has the NUB as long as you got it.

what about jaynor hes selling his char and he has nub so if someone buys it there is no nub for that person?

but in the event of another NUB buying it, the NUB on the char will end at whichever NUB ending comes first.

Wow really? Sounds like a huge exploit actually.

N0seBLeeD July 17 2008 12:25 AM EDT

Um, obvious.

New USER bonus.

Would tend to stay with the USER.

hmm, so what if a very New user, buys a really big character?
it becomes the new users character and thus keeps the new users bonus, no?
I really would like to know. that seems like a vury interesting question.

That is J'Bob the NUB will not follow the char in that case.... The Nub is based on User and the NCB is based on a char... so if a Nub buys a big non Nub char then their is no bonus... but if the Nub bought a NCB then the NCB should override the NUB bonus.... but I am not absolutely certain about that one.

TheHatchetman July 17 2008 10:07 AM EDT

in the event of an NCB being purchased by a NUB, the char will have NUB bonus until either the NUB player's bonus expires or the NCB on the char sold expires (whichever comes first).

So no, there's no real way to exploit this :P

I understand what you guys are saying but I'm not sure I"M being clear.
If a NUB stays with the user, and a nub user buys a large "regular" character then that character belongs to a NUB USER. Do not ALL characters belonging to a NUB USER gain the NUB bonus until it expires on the character?

Suqataqus July 17 2008 11:27 AM EDT

I'm going to guess that the NUB wouldn't apply to a character made prior to the NUB account being created.

If not.....WTB: Single minion char with 3m+ MPR!

What he is asking:

If a NUB of 1 day buys a NUB character of 5 months and 29 days would the characters NUB be reset?

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] July 17 2008 10:03 PM EDT

No it would not.... The nub on the char is non existent.... it belongs to the User itself.... The only way a char can have a bonus is with Ncb... The Nub always stays with the user no matter what until it is expired.

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] July 17 2008 10:04 PM EDT

And J"bob the Nub does not extend to regular characters.... only to characters with a bonus...

j'bob July 17 2008 11:56 PM EDT

Ok, so at it's most simple.
only the characters a NUB CREATES carry his nub bonus?

Bushy July 18 2008 12:00 AM EDT

nub bonuses don't get "carried"...

j'bob July 18 2008 12:14 AM EDT

nub bonuses don't get "carried"...

sigh. i just don't care anymore.

Bonus belongs to a character. New User status belongs to an account.

If you transfer a NUB character to New User, it retains all of its 4 months of NUB that remains. If you send it to a vet, it doesn't work.

If you transfer a normal character to a New User, it has no bonus, so nothing to retain.

If you transfer a NCB to a New User, IIRC, the bonus carries over and becomes a NUB bonus.
