Yea as the subject reads, I played from when the game first came out till SoV expansion killing the Emp. I doubt anyone who I played with even still plays anymore so I'm mostly coming here trying to find a way to get access back to my old account which I cant remember any of the info to other than the name of this character. If its impossible to do I would still like to come back and play again even if its just for nostalgia reasons, I just wanna play again. I'm not here to ask for membership back into CT as I would imagine you all still raid pretty hard and I feel like I would probably have to start from scratch. I'd just like to know if its possible to recover my old account and if not, what it would be like to start a necro or bard from scratch. Any help would be appreciated from anyone, be it someone from back in the day or someone whos just willing to help out a very ancient CT member from back in the day. Please feel free to email me at narutoboy@gmail.com as I dont know how easily I will be able to check this forum out constantly. Thanks!

As awful as it sounds, you need to contact customer support. If you still have the original credit card used on the account, or the CD keys, it will make it a lot easier for you. As far as starting over, it's not too hard to get up to speed these days. Being an old CT member, I am sure a lot of the "newer" members would gladly help you out. If you get going on a new account, add me to your friends and if I'm on, I'll help you out. Welcome back to EQ!

Wow wasnt expecting to see anyone ever again lol. So i did call this morning and apparently someone took over my account in 2003! I never sold the account or gave it to anyone but I can't remember the card# to recover my account. Someone is actually still using the account right now. I'm not sure what to do at this point, I was friggin 14 when that account was created so I'm sure it was my dad's card anyhow lol.

You could create a new account and try to contact whoever is using yours, but after so many years and countless server mergers, there's no guarantee that your characters still have the same names. Without the credit card details and CD keys, it's pretty much impossible to reclaim an old account.

No, it will be a lot easier to get you back to where you left off if you retired during SoV-Luclin era. They have added hotzones (zones with higher exp bonuses), mercenaries, almost all spells up to 85 are now vendor sold, enhanced out of combat mana and health regen, etc. You can level from scratch much faster than before.

I think I'm gonna make it easy on myself then and just start from scratch. I can't decide what I want to play though lol. I kinda narrowed it down but the list is still long. Any sites that give good enough on what classes are worth it now? I'm considering: Bard, Monk, Ranger, Zerker, Necro, Wiz, SK, and warrior. Like I said, the list is long lol.
