What exactly comes with a yearly membership?

I need to know exactly what comes with it before I make the purchase because if I can't switch in between wizards with it then it'll be a waste of money.Now if I can play different wizards throughout the year with it then that's a good deal.

You get more room in backpack and bank.

You get member specials.

I'm not sure what else.

A Yearly (12 month) membership is actually more beneficial than you may think/assume.

Consider a few possibilities:

Time - Being subscribed for a year allows you to go at the game at your own pace, as opposed to being subscribed for a month, you've to be rushing to get as much done within that small 30 day period. So, it gives you time!

Yearly Benefits - KI has benefits for members often throughout the year. You'll never miss out on these since you'll most likely still be subscribed during the time period the benefit event may be going on.
I've seen time and time again, persons regretting not having a membership when KI for example had it's Free Training Point Buy Back.

Your storage increases - This is excellent, granted you can easily purchase the new elixir available from the Crown Shop, your storage facilities increases for members.

Access to worlds - Obvious but necessary to mention. This ties in to my first point mentioned. You can quest at your leisure.

Post on Message Boards - Members get to voice their opinions and/or concerns on the message boards (like what we're doing now).

Shorter Crafting Time - Crafting time/slots decreases for members.

P.S I decided to include benefits for having a 12 month membership as opposed to a simple month throughout my reasoning, but the general facts remain the same regardless of the route you decide to take when upgrading.

As a month by month member, in my case it's easier to come up with $9.95/month than $69.99 (? what is the current price?). I still get all the member benefits

Cheaper for yearly in the long run. Less money at once for short term.

YMMV

Yep, guess it just depends on the situation.

Like Edward, I take advantage of yearly membership bonuses. However, I try to capitalize on the sale KI will be having (like now, offering 12 months for $60.00).

It's more cheaper than paying 10.00 for 12 months.

But it as I (and you) hinted earlier, it just depends on your situation and intentions

To each his own

XD.

You're right.

I just got carried away there.

So, backtracking:

If you've a membership, it is for that account. So, all wizards on that particular account will have accesses to what the membership grants (Access to worlds, as well as what's highlighted above).

So, if you've another account, you will need a membership for that account as well. Different account so you can't expect to benefit from bonuses from another.

However, I'm not sure if you combined the account (under a family account) if one membership will cover both accounts hence all wizards on those accounts. That may be a question for support;

Yearly memberships have a lot of benefits like what everyone has said, but one of the reasons I don't go for it is because I don't know when I'll stop playing. There's always a few months in a year that I don't have time to play W101.

This is one reason why I will most likely never buy a yearly membership. But don't let this discourage you, there are a lot of benefits to a yearly membership. I would say to go for it if you know you will be able to use the membership to it's fullest.
