So you want to return, but can't remember your password or account name? You should contact customer support either by phone or by chat, during PST/PDT office hours. Be polite and helpful, and have as much information as possible. Try to have your account name, password, names of characters, CD key(s), payment details (like the credit card number you used to open the account), and anything else that they are likely to have access to. The CSRs can be flexible in what they will accept as proof of ownership.

As usual, if you gave away or sold your account, respect the people who may be playing your characters now.

It is worth the effort to recover your account, as you earn Veteran awards for each year you have subscribed; the first reward is 30 minutes of double experience every 20 hours.

  2. If you contact SOE CS with the details you have (I have edited out your email address to save you from some spam), you should be able to get your account back.

  3. I played ages ago and would like to re-enter the world to see if I still enjoy spending time in Norrath lol. I was a young kid as it was more than 10 years ago I think since I last played (I am 25 now, and quit playing around the time I got my license probably) and don’t have the card I used any more, nor can I quite recall the account name despite my best efforts (think I have the text maybe but not numbers I put at end?) and remember nothing but a few character names, and I think the server I used to play on maybe. Is there any possibility of me getting back where I left off or am I starting square one here? I had a lot of time and money invested in the game (for a then teenager anyways) and getting back those characters, while I’m sure useless in the grand scheme of things now (given level cap when I left was 70 iirc and I wasn’t even there on any of them I don’t think, quit right) their sentimental value would be immense to me.

  4. Wow you guys have horrible memories, or didn’t play much. I created my first character in 1999 and I still remembered my account name and all my main characters. I had to call my bank to get the cc info though.
