The account management page is used to assign or reassign crowdfunding items to specific characters:[1]

Account transfers

Players may migrate their account between publishers. The following information is subject to change.[4][5]

  • Players with Kickstarter or Summer crowdfunding packages can migrate that package to My.com.[5]
  • Purchased cosmetics such as skins will migrate along with the account except for any region-specific purchases or event rewards.[4]
  • Items earned in-game and achievements are not migrated.[4]
  • Characters are likely not included in migration between publishers.[4]
  • Migration will not remove the original account, however all purchased items and backer rewards, such as the lifetime subscription, will be transferred.[4]
  • Users who wish to progress in different regions can opt to have two (or more) accounts.[4]
  • There may be a restriction on the number of migrations that can be done for an account.[4]

A player may choose to migrate their account of from My.com to Intrepid Studios, should they wish. Additionally, if they own a package from either Kickstarter or from the Summer backers, they can migrate that package over to the My.com registration as well.[5]Steven Sharif

Server transfers

Server transfers will not be possible initially. The developers intend to assess the impact on housing and other systems closer to launch.[6]

Name reservation

Name reservations were rewards for backing at the Pioneer level and higher and are currently available through the Voyager plus pre-order pack.[7][8]

  • Accounts will have name reservation tokens, that entitle its holder to reserve a name on a specific server when the reservation time comes.[6]

Name reservation priority

Name reservations will be allocated from the highest backer tier to the lowest backer tier.[9]

  1. Kickstarter backer tiers, highest to lowest.[10]
  2. Summer crowdfunding backer tiers, highest to lowest.[10]
  3. Pre-order packs purchased from the web store.[10]

Within each tier, the name reservations are on a first-come-first-served basis.[10]

Name reservation availability

Name reservations will begin during Alpha-1.[11]

Crowdfunding mounts

Kickstarter/Summer crowdfunding mount rewards are obtained and utilized by applicable backers in the following way:[2]

  1. Basic mounts are obtained through an early quest that is available to all players in starting areas.
  2. Players assign cosmetic skins to a character on their account from the account management page.
  3. The skin can then be applied to change the appearance of the mount that was earned in game.
    • This does not remove the skin itself. It can be applied again to any other applicable mount in the future.
    • Players may remove the skin from a character and assign it to another character on their account.
    • Skins can only ever be active on one character and one mount.

The Dawnbreaker mount skin is used in a similar fashion as described, but is only applicable to a certain class of mounts. Aquatic mount skins, like the Tidesnapper, are also used in a similar fashion, but are only applicable to the aquatic class of mounts.[2]

Payments

It will be possible to register with Intrepid, in order to play on NA servers. In which case, your account and billing info would be handled solely by Intrepid. My.com will be responsible, with collaboration from Intrepid, for EU accounts and servers.[12]Steven Sharif

Q: So to play on EU you would need a EU account via mycom?
A: Correct.[13]Steven Sharif
Q: Can you inform us about payments done by EU. Will they be to my.com or to IS?
A: Depends where the player creates their accounts, you will be able to choose Intrepid or my.com.[14]Steven Sharif

Gear binding

There may be some gear binding (BoE or BoP) but it will be an exception rather than the rule, as this doesn't facilitate the objectives for the economy.[15]

A lot of what we experienced in games that usually come before us is that many things our account bound and they're soulbound to your character... Instead very little here is character bound. Very very little. The vast majority of gear- yes you will get quest related gear as rewards- but it won't be let's say one set in one dungeon and you must run the dungeon over and over. Instead we want to really emphasize the reliance on the economy and crafters and gatherers and processors to support a majority of the gear structure in-game, combined with that of world raid bosses and dungeon bosses; not a repetitive quest line through a single dungeon.[16]Steven Sharif
