View Full Version : Suggestion: Last Name Change Deed

09-25-2009, 03:52 PM
I would like to see a name change deed for last names. I think its a pretty obvious choice for a store item. Last names have zero effect on the game and it would be great to have access to an affordable $5 or less, Item to alter an existing chars last name.

The End.

P.S. I think changing first name could be a good store item too, but I understand that could create all kinds of headache with mail other associated systems not to mention the social ramifications and accountability. But last name, whats the harm?

You can do a name change, first name atleast. It is a premium service offered by Turbine. I'm not sure if it's in the store or not, and have never done it myself so am not familiar with how it's done. But I do know it can and has been done.

As for last name, you must show a marriage license or legal name change documents. :rolleyes: (j/k)

Hmm, I did not see it in the store, but I could have missed it. I looked in the most obvious categories which may have been my first mistake. :P

Like I said, I don't know if a name change is available in the store, but it can be done (first name anyway). Contact Turbine directly. I'm sure someone else here knows how to do it, but since I've never done it, I don't know the process.

That's cool, I'm not dying for a name change or anything, don't get me wrong. In the long run I could care less. I didn't give my first char a last name and, after playing for awhile and seeing that last name didn't really effect any game function I thought, hey I wonder if that is in the store. I didn't see it so I thought it would be a good suggestion. Seems pretty easy for turbine to implement and would bring them more money which is good for everyone. I don't really want to pester a staff member for something so trivial. I can whack Kobolds in the head all day without a last name.

P.S. I appreciate your assistance ME, just clarifying my position. It isn't really a big issue for me personally, I just thought it would be a good item for the store.

On a side note: I usually find names that form a short sentence somewhat juvenile, but I saw this one on Ghallanda long ago that I absolutely loved.

It was: Mywife Hatesthisgame

A last name change for 25TP would give players that otherwise would never spend their TP something else to consider as "fluff TP sinkholes."

For instance, someone that is level 10 and finally complets The Vault of Night 6: The Plane of Night and kills Velah may wish to change their last name from "Deerslayer" to "Dragonslayer," "Kundarak Champion," or "Master of Mabar." So Natty Deerslayer suddenly has an opportunity to use one of their 25 TP rewards to change their last name (which is a nonfactor to character ownership on a server). This would be a great thing!

Caveat: The Player should understand changing their name to something against the EULA/CoC may cause them to lose their last name and they may lose the 25TP due to a poor choice in words.

I like the idea if it's cheap enough in TP.
