Search Box that lets us SEARCH all of our toons...

Ok, we all know that Legacy Storage is upcoming.
However...

What I have wanted to see since Beta is a way to search across all my toons for a Particular Piece of Gear, or a crafting component with a result that says:

Rubat Crystal
  • Toon 1; 10-Bay 2-row 5
  • Toon 2: 4- Bay 1-row 1
  • Toon 3 25-Inventory


Or even a wildcard search, such as:
Dynamic Slueth*
  • Toon 1; Dynamic Slueth Mask x2 -Bay 3-row 1
  • Toon 2: Dynamic Slueth Pants x1- Bay 1-row 2
  • Toon 3 Dynamic Sleuth Boots x1 -Inventory

You get the picture. Since we have no addons, and no apparent feed that I am aware of to search all of your characters, I really think many Many people would appreciate this. Particularly with everyone buying 64-packs and getting multiple items.
PLEASE CONSIDER THIS!
Also, readers of this, please post a reply of some sort - I think this should really be given some consideration.

Thank You,
TheHerc

It would be nice to have a bank/cargo hold/whatever that was account wide, if not just pub or imp wide. Better than having to find what you're looking for through multiple accounts then mail them to your toon.

I think this is excellent idea! Makes it so much easier to find who has what especially if you have multiple alts. You would make a lot of people happy if you would add this feature!

*Suggestion Box Post*

C'mon people, lets at least TRY to get some visibility going here!
Everyone wants it, why don't we make a statement Now and see if we can at least get a response?
I know that the new "Storage" is upcoming, but personally, I'd mush rather see a:
Enter Item
[ Laminoid ] Press Search


Spoiler


I really see no downside to asking for this. Do You?

Would be nice instead of logging in an out across multiple toons trying to figure out where I had an item I'm looking for.

Makes me miss my old WoW mod Bagnon.

Exactly - Or at least have a data dump somewhere that we could use to Parse out what we want using LUA code.
Of course that would be considered an external add-on, but would still serve the purpose.
There HAS to be a way to implement this.

Come on Bioware!
At least explain your position on this!
It Has been a while since you addressed this.

well 2.9 makes this suggestion moot. Buy a stronghold with legacy storage, and anything that isn't bound put in there no need to search. Log in and poof it will be there.

Not really at all.
I know I'm not alone when it comes to crafting alts. At any given time, any of my toons could have any piece of crafting material, or a piec of gear I got from a Cartel Pack etc... on them or in their inventory actually.
So If I am looking for something specific, I doubt that I am going to <poof> find it in legacy storage.
Would be much easier to type into a search box and have a list of all the places I have whatever I am looking for show up.
Legacy storage is not going to solve this problem.
