Thanks for the reply, Boxamus, and thank you all for keeping this alive. I am not sure I would have found the answers I did when I sought out Google for information today if not for you.
I might feel differently about things if it weren’t Blizzard’s actions that led me to condense everything together in the first place. I definitely wouldn’t have lost track of what was where if we hadn’t moved to a system that merged it all many years ago. Don’t get me wrong, I like being able to access it all in one place. However, I feel like if that’s the route they wanted to go with this, it shouldn’t be used as a punishment now.
I have used that second account recently, but I really don’t want two subscriptions right now. I’d also have to start characters over that I used in RP back then, and am reliving now. I don’t think my leveling partner would want to wait for all that, nor do I want to start recovering the things I’ve worked to collect. It’s all a bit messy.
