... i just googled a forum for EQ2, and this was the first one that popped up. i hope that this is an active forum, and a friendly one. just like the title says, i'm a returning player. and i'm BEGGING for help. lot of stuff has changed....... a LOT of stuff. i have entirely to many questions ... but for the sake of not writing a novel here, i'll try to ask only one. i last logged in 6 years ago. when i logged in today, some of my characters names either have a "Z" at the end of their name, or are completly... and i mean COMPLETLY changed. ... is there a way to "reclaim" or at least change my characters name to something i would prefer? finally, i should say, that i am not yet a paying subscription. i logged in, to see if i like the game enough to do so again. sadly, i do not think that a non-paying member is allowed to "world chat" in game at all. so, hopefully someone here will see this, and give me some tips. thank you for your time.
