<p>My plat ends 1/20.  I will need to choose which sub plan to go for.</p><p>First question is about char slots.  How many will I need to buy if I go gold, and how many if I go for the All Access Pass?</p><p>Second question is if the All Access Pass now gives the 500 SC a month like reoccuring gold does?</p>

<p>I believe all access gives an extra 5 = 12, i have 18 after the merge.</p><p>Right now though all-access accounts are extremely bugged for EQ2 so i would wait until it's all fixed, hopefully that will be way before the 20th... the support forums are a buzz about it.  Being all access they see you as bronze (ftp) both in game/forum support which equals /ignore, and many SC items are unavailable still.</p><p>CS pretty much say they can't do anything if you call them and they verify your account age etc.</p><p>So overall.. if EQ2 is your only game then go gold pay for the extra character slots, that + $5 every month from all access and it will pay for its self over time.  </p>

But if you drop All Access and then come back to it again, you get the extra char slots back (provided you got them during the switch from SA).</p><p>I came back to the game recently to find myself on Freeport but able to create 18 chars as well.

<p>Station Pass folks had their accounts permanently flagged to keep their 12 character slots when the extra slots were removed in the conversion to Station Access. I switched to a yearly sub (now called Gold) and did not continue in all Access  so I don't know how that affects character slots. I do know my accounts were grandfathered and I can see it in my account entitlement details as follows.</p><p>Entitlement: Extra Character Slots (Station Access)</p><p>Here is a<a href="http://www.zam.com/wiki/SOE_All_Access#What_will_happen_to_my_character_sl ots?" target="_blank"> Zam link</a> to explain this:</p><h2>What will happen to my character slots?</h2><p>If, on the date of the launch of SOE All Access, <strong>you have</strong> an active Station Access account (or have cancelled it but have time left on it before it expires), you <strong>will be</strong> entitled to the free character slots that were included with Station Access: EverQuest – 2 character slots, EverQuest II – 5 character slots, and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes – 4 character slots. If, on the date of the launch of SOE All Access, you <strong>do not</strong> have an active Station Access account, you <strong>will not be</strong> entitled to any free character slots.</p>
