In life? Nearly always.

As far as the game goes, yeah I don't care. I'm fine with the Legacy name I picked but I'm sympathetic to other players like Ponyboy that want to change.

Ponyboy Legacy? Was that on Dart Sion or Grand Master Zym servers?

Actually when you first picked your legacy it didn't tell you it was for all your characters, many people believed it was a surname for the character you was playing not for every character on the server.

I think a one time only rename should be viable option, maybe something you could spend some legacy levels on?

Yep, yep, when i picked my stupid legacy name I was just wondering if it was available because a guild member suggested it and now it's permanent across all characters..

I could have sworn I saw that name on one of those two servers the other day and almost whispered, "Stay, gold" but figured they'd probably already heard that a million times already. Weird coincidence, though.

We're definitely working on this (it's a much requested feature) but we have not made any statements regarding when this will be available.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk but why DON'T some people want it so you can change your legacy? You're happy with yours good. Some people don't like theirs but that doesn't mean they should be stuck with it.

I'm one of the people that like my name so I'm not gonna change it. Power to the people who want it.

I can change my name in real life, and Legacy (which has been classed as a surname) is no different. Eventually it's likely people will be able to change their character's name as well.
