Hi there,

I deleted my account years and years ago. I don't know any passwords or my registration code, or anything to that effect.

I want to begin playing again, and I do not want to start from scratch as I had a 100 craft and a few level 75 jobs.

I was on the Gilgamesh server and my name was Mesco.


Does anyone know if it is at all possible to somehow get Square Enix to reactivate my character without having an ID code or anything to that effect?

Thanks in advance!

All caps is bad. I've changed the title.

Did you delete your character or just let it be deactivated?

I'm not sure. My first guess is that you'd have to start all over again, since you don't even know your ID, but try contacting the SE support center. If you at least still have the card to which it was billed, they MAY be able to help you. I make no guarentees.

think you need the 16 number long code on the box

you probably cant get it back if you have no information about it. You would need probably 5-6 to have a chance of doing over the phone:

SE account/ PW (if it was regisitered), PoL ID, PoL PW, original CD keys, Credit card info, name on account, birthdate on account, address on account, email on account.

I believe you will NEED the PoL ID, if you dont have that its probably over. If you have that but not much of the other info, might be able to get it back through the huge "notarize a document stating you are the original owner" process they have for rollbacks.

I went thru this last year.

You have to have one of -
PoL ID,
16 digit code,
or the CC# that was used to pay for the account.

(As well as all the obvious info, name bday address etc)

They might have changed it since then, but when I reactivated after a 3+yr break, that's what I needed.

If you don't have any of that, worst case can still call SE support and plead your case.

I flat out deleted my character, and it was still recoverable.
