Do you think all characters in the world should have access to the familiar storage instead of having to scavenge for another Big Spider?

Some other features I would like to mention may be the ability to rename familiars (I missed the name of one.)

    I dunno about sharing but I'd definitely want to be able to rename my familiars.
    I just realized I could've name all my Xenon's familiars Roo-(initials). I have much regret.

    Sure, I'd love to be able to use my Wolf Underling on all my characters...

    However, I can't see any reason why we shouldn't be able to rename our familiars. All the good ideas always come five seconds after you click "Yes".

    I rather have them fix up the codex first.

    That would take the farming out at level 80.

    Wolf familiars would cut in price if familiars are shared between characters

    Nah. Rather make other things shareable first. Like name label rings.
    It just doesn't feel right to me to have a familiar unless I hunted for it on that character,

    Some familiars cost a lot such as Cygnus and the most sought-after Wolf Underling are worth a lot. Would you pay more more wolves for your other characters?

    yeah but wolf can only be found from marvel (consistently) and marvel brings in revenue.

    Yes! I've been wanting a familiar revamp for ages now. Preferably JMS's familiar system. I'd also like it that they include renaming our familiars as well because I wasn't satisfied with some of their names. As well as had some of my familiar names censored after a certain patch.

    You can get wolf from more then just marvel :) But its like a gamble and you might end up spending more getting it from the other option then you spend on marvel to get it. All depends on luck.

    I wonder if all the nos are coming from whales. I don't know anyone who enjoys overspending on familiars whether its gambling with in NX or overpaying the FM.

    I bought one wolf. I don't want my characters to have access to it and some other ones I collected.

    I like this idea, but how about those people who already invested many hours farming a spider on all their characters already?

    I find this change useful for when switching mains or when you trying to farm boxes on characters (like the Syngery Ring on multiple characters.) There is also Gollux prequest which it come in handy.

    I also don't enjoy grinding, so why not let all your characters share levels gained? Or inventory expansions? Or the cosmetic Salon? Or prequest completions?
    I mean, wouldn't you rather have Gollux unlocked for all characters as soon as you do the prequests on one, instead of just being able to move your Big Spider around and save a few minutes of the tediously long prequest line?

    Sharing familiars would be a great idea. Though, I prefer that we have the ability to remove them from our codex so we can transfer them to our other characters. That way, if we no longer desire a familiar on a certain character, we can give them to new character to save farming for a new one, or even sell them.
    I would STILL like a familiar name change system though, as long as it requires paying Mesos and not NX cash.

    Q: If all characters share the same familiar, will the player be able to name them differently for each character?

    If this becomes a thing, there needs to be some drawback from sharing it with other characters. Like if we add onto MrGoomba's idea of giving them to other characters, but with a meso fee (or maybe reward points).
