EQCSR-Justin has been hard at work! Check this out, he made a FAQ thread. I CAN’T LOAD MY MAIN or I CAN’T LOAD ONE OF MY CHARACTERS! To help load a “stuck” character we will start by deleting several files. None of these will erase you character. Browse to your EverQuest directory, typically C:\Program Files\EverQuest or C:\Program Files\Sony\EverQuest, and locate the zone files your character is stuck in. Delete them all. Next locate two files that have your character’s name in them, there will be two, an .opt and .ini file. Delete both these files. Start up the EverQuest patcher and patch the deleted zone files and try logging in the character.
WHERE IS MY VELIOUS ARMOR?
Because of the new character models, we were unable to include the Velious armor graphics as the unique armors that they were. The memory requirements to add these armors would have increased the system requirements even more and would have been unfeasible.
Adding the armors in the future is a possibility and something we are looking at but for now, if you want to see the Velious armors as unique, you will have to remove all Shadows of Luclin character models.
If you do not have Shadows of Luclin installed and do not see Velious Armor you want to make sure that your EQCLINET.INI file contains the following in the [Defaults] section:
I CAN’T CREATE A BEAST LORD CHARACTER? WHAT’S GOING ON?
To make use of the new class, the Beast Lord, you must have Shadows of Luclin installed and registered. This class is only available through the Shadows of Luclin expansion.
WHERE DID MY GROUP/HEALTH/TARGET/BUFF/MENU WINDOW GO?
Each window in full screen mode can be enabled or disabled for viewing by engaging the customizable hot-key combination for that feature and window. The defaults are:
ALT – B: Buff/Spell Effects Window
ALT – P: Party (Group) Window
ALT – C: Chat Window
ALT – S: Spell Gem Window
ALT – H: Hotbox Window
ALT – T: Target Window
ALT – Y: Self-Status Window
ALT – M: Menu Window
ALT – L: Lock down window position

HOW LONG ARE MY CHARACTERS SAFE AFTER CANCELING AN ACCOUNT?
Canceling your account does NOT affect your characters, only your billing information. If you cancel your subscription and then re-subscribe to EverQuest within 3 months, we guarantee that you will still have access to your game characters. Unfortunately, after that period we can no longer guarantee the validity of the characters. As we do not actively purge accounts, most characters will remain available. If you wish to reactivate your account in the future, you will need to use the same Station Name and Password that was used before canceling your EverQuest subscription.
HOW DO I CHANGE THE CREDIT CARD BEING CHARGED?
Start EverQuest as normal but instead of pressing the CONNECT button, select the ACCOUNT button. Select the CHANGE ACCOUNT button and then EDIT BILLING. Fill out the billing information and your new card will be charged on the start of the next billing cycle.
HOW DO I CHANGE MY REGISTRATION INFORMATION?
Start EverQuest as normal but instead of pressing the CONNECT button, select the ACCOUNT button. Select the CHANGE ACCOUNT button and then EDIT REGISTRATION. Fill out the information and your information will be updated.
You will not need to type in the <> marks, simply type in your current handle and the new one that you want to have. Your chat handle will change as soon as you hit Enter. It may take a few hours to be updated on the message board.
