As overpriced as I think it is, I'm considering buying it. I want to know if it's reusable...it says there's a 30 day cooldown, so I'm imagining you'll be able to use it once a month, which I'm hoping is true, but I don't want to spend 10$ and just use up an item like that.

I'd say its one change mate - they don't want people chopping and changing names so they have priced it at a prohibitive price so that we now have the name change option but they really don't want many taking up that option.

Hm, shame. Guess I'll get it and post results here as a "for the record" thing if anyone else is wondering.

I wouldn't bet on that...the feature was promised a year ago. Not a word on it since.

Hi there skarvika!

The tooltip for Renames seem to indicate that the item can be reused and has a cooldown. However, renames are consumable items, and name changes can only be applied once every 30 days. Sorry for any confusion; we are going to look at clarifying the tooltip in the future.

On a side note to clear up another question: one free Character Name Change will be given to each subscriber account at a later date, but this is not yet available.

That was supposed to be in November, with 1.5 and then again today, with 2.1. Mr. Musco said that there were "issues" with the Free Name change being implemented, so I'm wondering if we'll be waiting a half year again?

Alright, thanks for the reply! Good to know we'll be getting one eventually.
