    You dont, there is no valid reason to unlink the account, the account is linked to you and we are no longer meant to sell the accounts. So they dont offer a way to unlink them.

    Email support and ask them to unlink the account with your reason

    If they think it's worthy they will send you instructions

    There was only 2 reasons needed to unlink accounts and since you may not sell or give away accounts then there is no reason to do it.

    Actually there are several reasons if you have 9+ accounts

    One of them is if you feel that there was a hack attempt against you.

    Quit bagging on people for wanting to unlink from their master.

    They will help you unlink and relink to a new one if you ask them as long as you can verify things

    With no drama.

    Things with master accounts change all the time and when I decided to relocate things it was no big deal

    Interesting. A good friend of mine got in contact with support to get an account unlinked because he was "trading it to another player" and it was unlinked without any issues. Do a google search. There are still websites selling accounts. Why would Broadsword care if someone sells an account? As long as the new owner keeps paying the subscription I doubt they give a toss these days.

    Does each account still have it's own EMail? I don't think so anymore, just the email on the master account.

    Mesanna said on Meet and Greet, it is NOT illegal to give or sell or donate account, The person that OWNS the secret question, is the owner of the account, reason why is a Must to unlink the account from current email and the new owner must change the secret question, soon this will be all available under the new Account mgmnt.

    Yea just send an email. It wont be a problem. They're really nice if you word it politely you shouldn't have any issues. I think they are happy to have people who want to open/pay for more accounts!

    I look forward to your next effort at misinformation.
