<p>Okay, I may be reading in circles and confusing myself here, but if I'm reading the producer's letter correctly, those of us on the regular servers are going to have "GOLD" status which gives us access to all races and classes except Freeblood and Beastlord.  If we already have Freeblood characters (with lairs, and bats, and such) that have been in place for more than 60 days (if they're younger than 60 days, apparently the cost is being refunded?)...do we keep them, or do we have to repurchase Freeblood (and consequently lair and bats and such) after the changes?  From the letter, it sounds like we lose access to this race, and if that's the case, I'd like to know so I can get my junk (err, I'm sorry, I mean nifty novelty items) out of my Freeblood's house. <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> </p>

<p>Your not going to loose anything you already have. What it is saying is that Freeblood and Beast Lords don't come with a new gold membership. You have to aquire those by other means. You already aquired Freeblood, and Beast Lords are comming with AoD.</p>

If you bought them, you own them regardless of membership level. Same for beast lords if you buy AoD you own them regardless of membership level.

<p>Freebloods were included in a promotion last winter. So you may have gotten them without paying extra. However, once your account is  flagged for it you shouldn't have to worry about losing it.</p>

If you have Freeblood unlocked, it stays unlocked, if don't have it you can buy it just like before. There are no changes been made to this aspect of either EQ2 or EQ2X. Any official chatter about "race packs" in regard to "Free to Play your way" will be with regards to free players buying access to standard races, all talk about refunds etc are in relation to people with EQ2X Gold sub who purchased a race pack 60 days before the their sub is changed to EQ2 Gold (or regular sub as you'd think of it).
