Permanent OptionsEditarOnce you confirm any restart option, the changes are permanent. The admins will be unable to reverse your actions, since the changes are made to your character object. When starting over, the player will always keep any items which could have been bought with gems (see footnote A below concerning limited edition equipment). These include eggs, hatching potions, quest scrolls, food, avatar customization purchases, backgrounds, and gems. You will also keep any achievements you have earned.
The currently available methods for starting over are:
|Option||Main Feature||Best Used For Players Who|
|Fortify Potion||resets all tasks to yellow||had setbacks with tasks or have been neglecting tasks|
|Key to the Kennels||releases all 90 (Gen. 1) pets, mounts, or pets and mounts||enjoy collecting pets and raising them to mounts|
|Changing Classes||allows you to choose a new class||
|Orb of Rebirth||resets your character to level one||have attained a high level and find the game too easy or want the achievement badge|
|Reset Account||resets many parts of your account, including tasks and histories||have been playing a short time and want a fresh start|
The following table summarizes some of the differences between the options.
|Fortify Potion||Key to the Kennels||Changing Classes||Orb of Rebirth||Reset Account|
Level 50 (8 gems) or Beast Master Achievement (8 gems) or Level 100 (free)

AYou will lose all your equipment but you will be able to buy it all back, including all limited edition equipment or subscriber Mystery Items that you already own. You will need to be in the correct class to re-buy class-specific gear. Limited edition equipment that you had previously purchased (for gold or for gems in the Seasonal Shop) or been given for free (e.g. Mystery Items) will become available to be purchased again for gold (not gems) upon unlocking Rewards at level 2.
BYour Battle Gear is changed but the old gear remains in your inventory.
Players can use the Fix Character Values feature to reset their level without affecting any of their inventory or stats, so a player could change their level to 1. However this is not a true start over option because the player's attribute points are not reset; the player will still be as strong as they were when they were at the higher level.
