Second character questionFollow

Tried to do a search but don't really know how to word this. Since I'm in the free trial I have 2 characters and I'm wondering if I stop paying for the second character if it will be gone forever or just unplayable until I pay for it again. Any information is much appreciated. Thanks.

I *think* that if you just stop paying for the extra character, it will still be there if you ever re-activate the "option". Just be careful when you're doing it; I think some people who tried it and misunderstood what they were doing ended up deleting their characters (or maybe it was that they cancelled their accounts instead of just suspending them; not sure). I'm pretty sure what you want to do is go into SE account management, select FFXIV service, view option list, and cancel your option(s) from there.

In FFXI you could have multiple characters just like in FFXIV. If you just canceled the Content ID, the character was still there just unplayable. Once you reactivated the ID you could play it again. However, if you deleted the character it was gone*.

I would assume that FFXI would be the same way.

*I know of people who had deleted their characters and quit the game, only to have FFXI reinstate them later. Not sure what requirements they have for allowing that, but it has happened.

SE have already said there are no gaurantees for keeping inactive characters. Its a complete gamble, so I'd suggest that if it'll take you less than a month to build teh character back then let it go if you cant afford it, but if its a character you'd be sad to lose then wait untill SE gives any more info on the subject.

Not a whole lot is known about this yet. I know i started 3 characters, and even after they were cancelled, I could log in until the pay period started. They still show up as options in my account to restart. I hope SE doesn't plan to delete inactive characters, they don't need a reason for people to not resub if the PS3 version comes out and the game looks appealing again.
