Selling of Accounts

Can you sell a realm account on the game for realm items/gold still? I know you used to be able to.

We are taking a harder stance on this now and it is no longer permitted. Transferring account ownership (web or game) is not permitted.

I'm just curious….Why not? What if someone just genuinely doesn't want to play any longer but doesn't want their account(s) to go to waste? I'm not trying to buy or sell an account myself but I'm just curious why it's so frowned upon.

Buying an account with already leveled up characters and items is a clear pay-to-win situation. We strongly encourage you to experience the game as it was intended. Leveling can be, at times, difficult and time-intensive. The feeling of accomplishment and the friends you make on the way make it worth it.

I agree Grumpy but isn't that the buyer's discretion and their problem? haha

I agree with BeeR30, that should be at the player's discretion. You really can't control them that much. Not saying that I would, but you control too much already.

Technically, all noble accounts fall under "pay to win" because 1-exclusive abilities and 2- exclusive content. Being pay to win is like being pregnant, there is no nuance. You are P2W or you're not, so, since the realm is already p2w, might as well go for seconds because it's not gonna get any more pregnant.

We can argue semantics but it doesn't change our stance. What it comes down to is our policy is the same as every online game that has accounts. If you do choose to buy/sell accounts you run the risk of getting scammed and or disabled.
