Jun 12th 2008 5:23PM This is fantastic news for me!
My first character ever is on an Oceanic realm, as the game auto-chose for me when I started the game. I abandoned this character years ago when I learned that you couldn't transfer from PvE to PvP. Lately, I've grown bored playing my Horde side mage.
Feb 15th 2008 1:03PM My account was hacked a little over a year and half ago, late at night, while I was actually online playing. I kept on randomly disconnecting (very common for the internet connection I was playing on) Stupidly, I thought nothing of it, and decided to head to bed.
Woke up the next morning, I logged back on (my login info was still the same), and my lvl 55 mage was standing next to a mailbox butt-naked in UC. My bags were completely cleared out, and the bastards had even thrown away hearthstone. Strangely, everything in my bank seemed in tact.
The process of getting my items back at that time was quite a pain. I'd email a rep, who'd refer me to a web page, that would give me a number, that would refer me to another number, to tell me to email a rep, who would tell me where download the correct form, to directly fax into another place. I had called their phone support, and the actually received a BUSY tone most types of the day I was calling. It took about a month to get my stuff back (the entire time, the account had to be frozen during the investigation process). Once I found the form to fax in, they just required a faxed copy of my ID, and within 12 hours it was back up and running.
They were pretty good at restoring all of my gear, along with most, if not all, of my gold. They only thing they couldn’t restore was the expensive enchantment on my weapon. Not bad at all.
