Account: HFB Reincarnation slot character name: Danse's Fury (33rd Barb, soooo close to whipping out the dire mace).
What happened: Danse's Fury used the pillar of light. Got booted. Check. Made new toon to take the slot. Got booted while making new toon. (not a crash, possible server reset?) Hopped to another server. Made second new toon, which may have had same name as another toon? (Of course, it is always best to panic!) Made it in and to the pillar of light. Pillar told me I was too low to reincarnate, i.e. I have no reincarnation slots available to choose. I tried back after server resets last night to see if that would fix things. Nope.
If possible, might the reincarnation slot be turned on again for me, please? Or if some other solution is better, that would also be much appreciated.
In any case, thank you for all you've done. It has brought much joy to my friends and me. My brother who recently started playing here has said HG is the best on-line gaming community he has encountered and that is saying something, to be sure.
I would love to redo as usual. I used a toon called Furious Danser to get the reincarnation slot. Furious Danser is not in my vault. Would you please return Furious Danser to my vault, if that is the preferred way of dealing with issues like this. (Any solution is awesome in my book.)
The legendary barb in my vault (Dance's Fury) is an old toon--no pre-L tags. Furious Danser is a recent build and had all the tags up to 33 lvl and rings (except lev).
Thank you for all your help thus far and whatever else you can do.
What do you mean you used it to 'get' the slot? Was it the old character who was deleted at the light, or the new one who claimed the resulting slot? Please no more three day delays in responding - it means I have to waste time re-looking up everything.
Sorry for the ambiguity, I see what you mean. "Get the slot" in my previous message means sacrificed at the pillar of light so that a fresh 1st lvl toon has access to the sacrificed characters xp, tags, etc.
I think this is the rest of the pertinent information: I used the pillar of light with a 33 lvl barb named "Furious Danser" to create a reincarnation "slot" for a fresh 1st lvl toon to use. I was booted and Furious Danser was "deleted" or whatever happens to the "originals" in reincarnation.
Given the duplication the toon name "Dance's Fury," it seems the toon I claimed the slot with had a bad name (a duplicate) name, i.e. Dance's Fury.
(I currently have an old legendary barb in my stable w/ the name "Dance's Fury." Aside from the duplication in names, this toon is not involved in the reincarnation process I was attempting.)
When I logged off and logged back in and there was no reincarnated character in my vault and there was not a reincarnation slot for the sac.ed 33 lvl barb (Furious Danser) at the pillar of light.
I hope I have been informative and less ambiguous this time and again, my apologies for the delay and your wasted time. I realize you are doing me a favor, that it is not required of you at all, and that your time is precious.
