considering reactivating an ancient account..

    I'm considering reopening one of the accounts I closed shortly after AoS, I'm wondering tho if it will have any access to Malas/Tokuno or if I'll need to buy those expansions.

    Or indeed if it will simply be easier to create a new account with Stygian Abyss and presumably get all old content?

    If you purchase the expansion for the old account that'd probably work, I think.

    Just do a fresh game install and prepare for a long time updating.

    People here will help you with any problems you have returning, technical or otherwise.

    Welcome back.

    don't you only have to buy the most recent expansion pack to get all the ones that came before it? if that is true (I think it is) then you also get a small discount for upgrading an account, rather than buying a new one.

    If you download from http://www.uoherald.com/downloads/ then you will get content up to and including Mondain's Legacy. Your Subscription page will not show it, but you get the content as it is now free for all current subscribers.

    All the answers in here are correct. If you Buy SA then you will have all the expansions up to SA, of course currently everything up to ML is free, so the previous point is useless unless they release a new expansion and do not make SA free.

    If you decide to reactivate your old account, be sure to buy the Stagian Abyss Upgrade or it will not work.

    Between the 2 options you have, I will go with creating a new account. Here is why:

    1- Old account + Stagian Abyss: You will get everything for 29.99$ but you have to add 12.99$ for a month.

    2- New Account + Stagian Abyss: 39.99$ with first month included so you save 3$

    If you go the new account way, dont use the free trial. T oprevent from abuse that were going on, they changed the limitations on free accounts with Update 65. Here they are:

    Player Housing
    Cannot place, own, trade, or receive a house
    Only the “Friend” and “Guild” levels of access permissions will be available

    Player Vendors
    Cannot own or rent

    Cannot enter Felucca dungeons, or the Felucca Lost Lands

    Only receive basic resources (ex: iron instead of hued ore, regardless of skill)
    No bonus resources (jewels, granite, sand, etc)

    Bulk Order Deeds
    Cannot receive, use, or turn-in

    Cannot repeat normally repeatable quests

    Cannot join Factions

    Champ Spawns
    Cannot participate in, or receive rewards from

    Community Collections
    Cannot donate or receive rewards

    These items will no longer be usable by trial accounts:
    Commodity deeds
    Skill/stat advancement scrolls (Alacrity, Power, Transcendence, etc)
    Holiday gifts, special rewards (ex: veteran rewards)
    Bags of Sending
    Bracelets of Binding
    Pet Summoning Balls

    As you can see, you are way too limited for 14 free days if you know you will subscribe.

    If you are thinking of using your old account so you dont start with nothing or almost nothing, believe me, you dont really need what you had. I came back a week ago and decide to go with new account (free trial which I had to call 3 time to EA so they remove the free days and start with my 3 months subscription to get rid of the limitations). Instead of going to my old shard, Great Lakes, I decide to try a new one and went to Catskills, Believe me, players are great, friendly and generous, I already have great gear, lots of money and even an 18 X 18. Start a Char with the skills you want (maximum 49 points per skills so you can get quests rewards in New Haven) and get your skills quests in New Haven, you will have a lot of players who will come and offer you help, heal you, equip you and even, when you will be ready, give you a tour of the land (all of the facets) and show you the good spawns. Players like Lace, Deth, Tallus Cross, Morphine, Talos, Member of the Gentle Rest Inn Guild and their Alliances.

    Welcome back and if you Join Catskill, Salute me on General Chat, I am Papou !
