i haven't played in almost 2 years , i didn't cancel it tho , are you sure ?
Yes, any character you had created for v1 no matter if you had a subscription or not, will be available in phase 3 testing. Now the part I don't know about is how will we be able to use that character? Reactivate our old FFXIV account on the SE management page or what? I'm guessing we will find out more when they are getting ready to open up phase there in June sometime.
