I screwed up

I made a character and selected the wrong class somehow.

Can I remove this character and still use the name?

The treasure maps and pets I collected from the mail, are they now bound to this character?

The treasure map for coldharbor that I opened, is it bound to this character?

    If you delete that character you will loose all of your bonus items.. forever.

    You will need to make a second character and transfer all the items via your bank. I think there is a waiting period before you can use that same name. I am not 100% on that nor do I remember how long. That could have changed as of late.

    I've always been able to re-use the name of any character I delete.

    What SeñorCinco said is partially correct - Get to town and drop them in the bank.

    However, there is no waiting period between deleting and creating a name. I did it twice today to get two of the names I wanted.

    - Your items can be deposited in the account bank. You'll have to unpack the maps, but it will work. Another player couldn't deposit the pet until s/he relogged.

    - Your name will be released exactly when you delete your character. Pick a friend and ask him/her to create a character with that name in that exact moment, remake your character and ask him/her again to delete his/hers in order to release the name again, so you can have it :)

    Thanks for the responses, I was pretty upset when i realized what happened. Sucks waiting months and then minutes into the game you feel like you ruined it all.

    I got to the bank and deposited everything, sucks having to unpack all those maps. Ended up using 57/60 slots.

    One question I have, how can I ever use the coldharbor map since it's now in the daggerfall bank? Can I return to cold harbor? Or is that map effectively garbage now?

    Good to know. I recall some timmer being discussed a week ago. I was unclear (shocking, I know) on it then, TBH .

    You return to Coldharbor later in your journeys.

    After it's all said and done I didn't screw much up, only thing that really sucks is having 27/60 bank slots since I don't want to carry around all the maps and pets. Not as big of a deal as I originally feared, still annoying as hell tho.

    Yeah kind of a pain to have to store all of that. I wish the pets were like the horse, so can summon them with out having to get them from the bank when you want to use them different character.

    Yeah, pets are as useless as teets on a bull. Of course, that's the case with all MMOs I've seen.
