Silver Accounts

    I recently went down to 2 all access accounts from 3. I had purchased silver long ago. I now have a silver account with the 4 slots (5 I bought 1) on my EQ2 game but on EQ I only have 2 slots. The rest of my characters are frozen. That account is silver in EQ2. Any ideas on how I can get it silver in EQ? Or does EQ not have silver accounts?

    At one time the Silver accounts were sold in EQ.

    They discontinued the sales of them and reconfigured the Silver label to apply to old original paying accounts that people were reactivating to return and play free. That way the returning players had more stuff than free accounts but not as much as paid accounts. Or if you are now a paid account and go free it might assign you Silver. Maybe.

    At this point in the game if you have a used to be paid account from pre 2012 (or maybe 2014) and reactivate it or go free on it then it will be Silver. If you have an original free account it will not reactivate to Silver. Although some players swear they have a free account that they were able to reactivate to silver they have yet to prove it and it turns out many of them were on their old paid accounts.

    The sign of 2 slots on your EQ account is a sign of a free account. Never paid and not Silver. A Silver account in EQ will have at least 4 slots or more.

    I would petition just to see if they can cross game it since it could be something that was overlooked when they implemented one charge covering all games.

    After they stopped grandfathering in Silver accounts, All Access goes back to Free.

    I think silvers have 4 or 5 character slots. You can buy additional slots in game store.

    I don't know if the Silver on EQII and EQ are the same or not.

    My silver accounts on EQ have all characters available for play. Even if that account/server has 8 or 9 characters on it. I bought an extra character slot on one account.

    When you play All Access on EQ, you can play All Access on EQII.

    I think the grandfathering and silver purchases were specific to each game. (EQ & EQ II are two different games, just the same brand).

    Do you have unspent loyalt crowns? If you have a few thousand unspent crowns then I'd suggest just buying 3 dolls of the character from the PoK loyalty merchant. Using all three will grant you 3 additional character slots. (Not sure but you might need to use one, log, use another, log, and use the third log.)

    This might be helpful too.

    I have two silver accounts. To me the main perk I like is really the tier 5 apprentice merc. Everything else you could buy.

    None of my accounts are ftp, but someone else might find the link you posted helpful.

    I've had to deal with a similar issue when I first came back to EQ. I had to contact customer service twice; the first time was when SOE still owned EQ. I found out that I had 2 accounts; my original pre FTP and an FTP account. The pre-FTP account had 5 characters with only 2 character slots available and the FTP account had no characters with only 2 slots available. I was able to keep both of them and pay the monthly sub if I so chose; I never purchased a silver account. So, my account was silver only when I paid the subscription and I only used my pre-FTP account. When Daybreak took over it was the second time that I had to contact customer service because my account would not show up. It turned out that my accounts had to be merged; I was able to keep my characters from my old account but not my past account information or forum posts/status. So on the forums at this point I am a newbie (heh). I've been playing/paying for this game on and off since the original Ruins of Kunark.

    Geroblue, I was adding onto your vague point for people interested in the topic. I was not posting exclusively to you.

    For some reason you were posting vaguely about things you weren't sure about aside from your own account slots... You didn't even know the number of slots Silver members can get to start (four).
  9. KermittheFroglok New Member

    Ryndarin, that's weird. Both of my pre-ftp accounts got silver with 4 slots one was started when Velious was out and the other around SoF'ish timing.

    Sorry, that was mean. I should have been nicer :-/

    No problem. I'm getting much older and my memory isn't what it used to be.
