    Default change names wish

    Hi, I already asked on the in game help section but i'm having problem to realize my wish.

    I wanna change my toon name in Obi-1.

    The answer i received in game is that there are rename tokens on store, but i'm afraid that will not work.
    Not only for the -1 thing but also because i already have a free rename token,
    and when i insert /changename Obi-1
    it says (Error): There was an error while renaming. The name you have selected is banned.

    I appreciate any help in achieving my wish, ty

    You can wish to break the rules all you want, but it won't happen. (I bet you can guess why...)

    Create a character named Obi. Create a second character named Obi on the Hardcore server. At the end of the Hardcore event, transfer the second Obi to the server you made the first one on... presto! Obi-1.

    Where are the regs re the DDO naming policy? Is there one, or am I just mis-remembering? Looked for them... no luck.

    There was also a caveat at one point regarding the "-1" appendage that the player will rename that character in a timely fashion to remove the "-1".
    (Tho not finding a link for this, just like last year when I went looking for it. I think that specific point was removed from the naming rules.)

    (Note the second bullet regarding names from pop culture / media.)

    This as well as -1 is not an allowed character in names. The workaround for this (-1 thing) is to create a character on some other server with the name "<whatever>" and transfer it to a server that already has a "<whatever>" and then it will become "<whatever>-1". I would not suggest using this (expensive) technique with Obi, because that would be breaking the naming policy.


    Edit: I didn't refresh this page since yesterday, so apparently someone already said this.

    It used to be on a document included in the install folder, along with user guide. Now we must search the interwebz.
