Linkshell helpFollow

I made a character a while back and then created a linkshell. I then deleted the character as I fancied a change on race and forgot to disband the linkshell beforehand. I have kept the name of the previous character and returned to same server but when I went to recreate the linkshell with same name and it says that ls already exists as I didn't disband the previous ls. Is there a way that SE can disband it for me? I've already spoken to the GMs in game but they were not helpful at all

I'm gessing that there still are some active (read, not deleted) characters which hold the pearls, as such this is still an "active" LS and the name cannot be used.

I would suggest choosing another name for your linkshell.

I'm sure SE wont be deleting any old character data as they will surely run a 'return to vana... erm.. Eorzea' campaign to encourage players to come back when they feel the game is much better. We still cant kick players from LS's which is why so many seem to 'die'. is it even possible to disband a LS at the moment?

It is possible to disband.

I was a member of Tainted and with 90 members, having 20 active, the LS leader decides to create a new LS and disband the original one.

I know you can disband an ls via the same npc you get the linkshell from.

Off topic then if I wanted my old character that I deleted how would I get that? Again I'm only like an
Hour if that into the game so not fussed to
Delete then restore the older character to then disband the ls properly and also would the fact I've used the same name on both characters would that affect restoring the right character

I don't think that many people have gone through what you are and as such give you an insight on their experience.

Your best bet would be to contat Game Support and put that question to them.

Is character recovery even possible? If not I think you may be doomed to regret the deletion without disbanding first. I hope you are able to get your LS name back, however. Good luck to you!
