    1. I can't remember my login info for an old character what can I do?

    If you know your Username and have access to the e-mail account linked to that account. You can simply reset your password. This can be done by clicking the button at the bottom of the Arc client. You should then be able to log in as normal.

    If you cant remember your Username or E-Mail linked to that account. Your need to e-mail [email protected] with the subject line for the reason of contact. Include any details you can remember about the account such as Character names, Classes ETC as much as you can remember. PWE Support will respond as soon as they can to assist with this.

    2. I had an old Character I can't find it any more. Have PWE/PWI deleted any characters?

    We are not aware of any time PWI has deleted any accounts or characters. In the past we have had a server merge. More info on this can be found Here (Server Merge Info)

    An easy way to check for characters is by redeeming an Arc code. You can do this in the Arc client by going to Library on the left-side, clicking PWI, and then clicking the Redeem Code link. Below are two codes that are re-usable. Once you use one of those, it'll list all servers that you have characters on, as well as the characters themselves.

    If you still can't find any characters after that, you will have to send a support ticket. You can do that here: https://support.arcgames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

    3. I can't remember my Gear / Bank / Auction House Password what can I do?

    Please check out this link to the Support Site to resolve this issue.

    4. I want to start another character which server is the best one to choose?

    The Below Quote from the PWI Wiki is a really good starting point with this question.
    When choosing a server you should consider the one with:

    Lowest ping time.
    Time zone: East, West, or European.

    Ping time is the overall time it takes for data to travel from your computer to the server and back to your computer. Servers that are closer to your location will have lower ping times than those further away, but ping time can vary. For best results, make sure you aren't using much of your bandwidth while playing.

    Well, old treath but the last 2 comments are a bit negative when it comes to new and/or returning players. There is no need to have a GM around if you do (some) quests.

    I started playing perfect world again on 18/01/2020 from scratch.
    Lots have changed in 10years.
    My advice for new people is to enjoy and take your time with this game.
    You can meet lots of friendly people on the servers, and there are lots of cool events trough the year.

    My feeling in the begining was, this is gonna take forever to get a strong char.
    But thats not true, it goes really fast and you dont even have to put money in.

    But if you do put money in, you can get really fast to the top of the game.
    With spend and charge rewards or other events, you dont got to spend alot and the game will last forever.

    Happy newyear to all!

    And special thanks to the pwi(ARC) team for all the years u still hosting perfect world.
    No regrets of restarting it, in fact i love the game more and more each day.

    Love and peace :)

    @mikanmist Just check your book on what progress you had. The book im refering to is "Perfect World Anecdote". You can find it in the bottom right corner. Click Quests, that will give you 6 more options and then the book Perfect World Anecdote. When you open the book you get 7 different options. The quests you are looking for is under "Western Continent".

    Hope this was helpful to your question :)

    Dream Seeker is in the docks of dream weaver port. You get the ticket from it from "The ying yang key"-Quest at Elder of Thousand streams. It will launch a Quest line that you need to follow through to receive the ticket for the dream seeker. This quest has a prequest which is named "The light returns" or something similar which is also at the elder of thousand streams, if you don't find the quest with the ying yang key.

    In case if you have done the quest, head to port dreamweaver and go to the ship and try to click on it. This brings up a menu where you can select a seat. Once you selected a seat, you will be teleported on the ship and you need to wait until the ship leaves. If you fall into the sea of reality once you reach the border, then you need to do the quest i described above.
