    Keeping names of expired characters.

    Title is pretty self-explanatory. If chars are expired, do you lose their names? Or are names only lsot when the account is lost? Out of pure whim I created an account of names a week ago (I play single player) and a few of them I would like to keep, for the "just in case (very very very small) chance" I ever get the urge to go back to bnet. Besides, I like having the names, even if I"m never going to use them. Do I have to perm these guys?

    If I'm not totally wrong, the names stay "taken" at least a little while after the character expiring. Then they are free to take for others, even though your expired char still has it. In theory you can have 8 chars with the same name on your account, 7 of them expired ofc.

    However, if you want to keep them "forever", there is no other way than perming the chars. Sorry. :azn:

    If you want to keep the names, try deleting the expired char, and remake it with the same name. If it doesn't work, the name is already taken...

    @IntelligentX, now that makes sense too ofc. :azn: Once every 90 days is far less painful than every 10 days though.

    perming LieutenantDuran right now then I guess. Its no Tyrael or Myth but I"m pretty happy with it. Personally I think it would be pretty badass to have a pvp necro named it. Got to perm 8 characters in 2days. Thank god for multiple instances D2s.
