Hi all,

I've just logged onto a server I haven't been on for well over a year.
Quite fancy making it a "home away from home" so thought I'd create something new.
How long after deleting a character would I be able to re-use the name?

Cheers.

I don't know. Try it. It only takes a minute.

It's supposed to be instant.
That's why they call it space, cause there is so much of it.

Essentially instantaeous... ie: as fast as you can delete and create a new character to the point of inserting the name.

I have done it a number of times in this MMO.

Andryah is correct. I have done it myself a few times and as fast as I could press delete, and recreate, it was available. It should be instant.
