You can try logging a ticket with CS. Good luck.
Duct tape is like The Force; it has a light said and a dark side and it holds the universe together.
While I always try to provide correct and meaningful information I have been known to make mistakes, from time to time.

Yeah, I had the same problem with a toon's name. They most likely won't help you.

People thinking that you heal them out in spite of any **** they do!

If other players report your legacy name as a violation of the terms and conditions, you will be forced to change it. Other than that, the only mechanism I know of (assuming that submitting a ticket to the in-game support does not work) is dependent on your server being designated as one that you can transfer from - if you transfer to another server where your legacy name is already taken, you will be forced to change the name. However, that transfer option is a long shot, especially if your legacy name is a mis-spelling of the name you wanted.
I am telling the truth, honestly! I am as honest as the day is long! Besides, I am a terrible liar, everyone can see when I am lying - my lips are moving.
Like most other subs, I have a Referral Link. Clicking it gets you some stuff, and me some stuff too.

Hi Brutal_Skillz,

Are you saying there was a typo made during a post-transfer Legacy rename? If this is the case, please create a ticket detailing the incident and we will investigate.
