Everquest II players with remaining questions about the upcoming server consolidation need look no further than the game's official forums for a handy dandy FAQ put together by the Daybreak Game Company team to help ease in the transition. Topics cover name retention, whether or not transfers are free, banking issues, housing and player-designed dungeons and much, much more.
Q: If our names change, how will our guildmates know who we are? How will the guild still be together if everyone is renamed?
A: The names that do conflict will be renamed according to the method listed above. In the guild roster everyone will keep their notes, rank, and anything else tied to that character. If a character is renamed it will be automatically updated in the guild rosters. All characters that are auto-renamed will have the option to do a free name change. If the free name change is used it will automatically update the name in the guild roster as well.
Q: How will you handle guild names?
A: Guild names will be handled similarly to character names. If two or more guilds have the same name, we will append "X" to conflicting guilds and both guilds will be offered a free guild name change. If there is no leader in your guild, you'll need to /petition to initiate a vote for a new leader.
