Can you transfer gold between characters?

My lead character has over 200,000 in gold, and is getting refused both battle items and any new earned items because of it. I've tried to buy things I can't even use yet, but it still isn't enough. Can I transfer the gold to another character?
I'm getting stuck because of this! Weird, huh? LOL. Please help?

Thank you,

You can't transfer the gold between characters.

What you can do is buy equipment for the other characters on your account, as long as they're not listed "No trade", and put them in the Shared Bank. For the "No-trade" items that your other characters may need, you can buy expensive items and put them in the Shared Bank, to be sold by your other characters for gold.

You can't transfer gold, but you can buy items that your other wizards need, and transfer the items to your other wizards (make sure you don't buy the "no transfer" items though).

Then after your backpack is a little empty and you start collecting more items from battle drops, then you can start to transfer those items to the other wizards so that they can sell them and get some gold too.

Trade items to your other characters through the shared bank and have them sell the stuff for gold, or buy stuff for your other characters with your main character and trade it through the shared bank. Do any of your other characters need a mount? That's a good 50000 gold right there off your shoulders. -eli and crew (how am i always broke? Oh yeah- crafting)

No. However, you can purchase things on behalf of other wizards that can be transferred such as reagents, pet snacks, pets, and gear.

You can't transfer gold. You can, however, use your gold to buy stuff for another character (be careful what you buy doesn't say "no trade") and put it in your shared bank. The other character can then retrieve the items from the shared bank. I do this all the time when one wizard has no monies and needs gear. :-)

You can buy items that your other characters can use, transfer them via the shared bank.

Or buy treasure cards and trade them away in return for help on diffcult quests?

I know a Not very effective way of transferring gold but it isn't recommended unless you have gold to waste.
You take the wizard with all the gold and buy a bunch of expensive items at the bazaar, Then put them in the shared bank and take them out with another wizard and sell them again.

Man, I wish I had some of that! Try buying a house in the Crowns shop. That should take away about half the gold. Choose wisely! Always do preview before hand. Crafting quests, and gardening will use up some gold too. Go to the Bazaar and buy the best gear possible for your school. That should bring you down tremendously! I must ask you, though, how on earth did you get so much gold?
