    Instalation Question

    Posting for a rl friend of mine who posted on Alla but didnt get what he needed lol

    Hi there,

    I am currently living in the EU but am playing on the US version of the game. I am curious, is it possible to buy the EU version of the game, uninstall US and then be able to buy the EU expansion back version or will my character be lost? Will the ID codes cause problems?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Yes, you can.

    Uninstall the US Game. Install the EU game and EU Expansion pack and you can still play with your character.

    All you lose is your macros but that shouldnt be a problem.

    Good luck and have a nice time with the Installing/Update .

    I have US Version and can log in JP and EU friends accounts.
    Characters are server sided saved what means you could even login with a Pakistaniversion if there would exist one.

    If I understand your friend correctly, the answer is no as far as I know. If your original account ID-codes are from the US version, you will need US expansion codes to register and use the expansion. The data install is probably region-free, registration probably isn't.

    For example, I can't buy the Japanese ToAU and register the expansion using the ID codes inside that package, because the account was registered using a NA package.

    I think.

    You can't. When you need to enter your cd-key for ToAU, you'll need one of the same region you started the game with.

    So if you want to play with the EU version, you'll still need to buy a US version of ToAU to register it, then uninstall everything to reinstall the EU version.

    As stated while you can play any region from any pol, the installs them self must be from the same region.

    Same with the codes, EU and NA dont match and wont work 100%

    So save ur self the exp monies
