Character Slots (EQ2)  

How many character slots do you get in EQII? It depends on which service you choose and which subscription or membership you've chosen.

Contents [hide]


There are two subscriptions available on the traditional EQII Live service:

  • Regular Subscription: 7 slots [1]
  • Station Access Subscription: 12 slots [2]

When you have an EQII Live subscription of either type you will have that many character slots available on each of the Live regions: US, EU, and Test.

EQII Extended

  • Bronze: 2 slots
  • Silver: 3 slots
  • Gold: 7 slots
  • Platinum: 10 slots [3]

Reducing your Subscription/Membership

If you change subscription/membership levels and have more characters than available slots, the most recently played is what the game will display at character select. The other toons are still stored by SOE, but will be unavailable unless you pay for those slots via membership, subscription, or by purchasing extra slots.

Purchasing Extra Slots

As of October 5, 2010, it is possible to buy extra character slots on the Marketplace for a one-time fee of 1000 Station Cash, or $10 USD. Slots are permanent. You pay for them once and they stay on your account forever. You can purchase as many character slots as you like. [4] [5]

Character slots are not shared between EQ2 Live and EQ2X. So if you buy a slot on EQ2 Live, you do not have an extra one on EQ2X unless you buy it there also. [6]

Once you purchase the Character Slot token from the Marketplace, you will need to right-click and use the item added into your inventory before the slot will be available.

Extra Slots on EQII Live

  • Character slots sold are *in addition to* any slots you are getting by being an SA subscriber. (Example: If you had 12 slots available as an SC subscriber and you purchase two more slots in the marketplace, you'll now have 14 slots available.) [7]
  • If you buy slots and cancel your SA subscription the extra slots will still be available with your regular subscription. [8]
  • If you had unusable characters from having Station Access in the past, purchasing character slots will unlock them in the order that they were last logged in. [9]
  • A character slot purchase will give you a character slot on all three Live regions: US, EU, and Test. [10]

Extra Slots on EQII Extended

  • Character slots are additive to whatever membership status you currently have. For example, if you are a Bronze player (two slots) and buy three more slots, you'll have five slots available. If you then upgrade to Gold status, you'll have seven slots (Gold) plus the three slots you purchased for a 10 available character slots. Downgrading works the same way. [11]

Russian Servers

Because there is no Station Cash Marketplace on the Russian servers, they are expected to not have this service available to them.
