View Full Version : EQ Evolution & Account keys
12-26-03, 08:12 AM
Well, I've been suckered in to restarting my account and now I need to pick up a few expansions (Ykesha and Dungeons). I see that EQ Evolution is only $5 more than the Ykesha expansion by itself, so here is the question...
Does Evolution give you separate CD keys to each expansion, or is it one special key that activates all the expansions in it?
If it has separate keys, I'll probably just pick up Evolution and save the other keys if I ever wanted another account.

I think they use account flagging now but yes there is only one key with evolution and i used the download LDoN method and did'nt have to enter another key. <p><table width=450 height=102 bgcolor=blue>

I had a friend that did this...had to call Sony and get them to do it, it wouldn't let him use an Evolution key to raise his old account to have all those expansions.
edit: I should clarify: It wouldn't let him automatically do it. The reps at sony did it though. Edited by: Maht Stohlit at: 12/26/03 7:02 pm

Yes, Evolution is one key. I didn't realize what all Evolution included, so I bought just PoP when I came back (I had up to Luclin before I left). I then decided that I needed LoY too. I spent the few extra bucks to get Evolution's all-in-one 3-disc set instead of just LoY.
I just entered the key into the registration screen, and I had LoY. I don't see why it wouldn't "activate" all the other expansions also, as it's made to start a new account with all the expansions... -------------------------

I came back after 1 and a half years, I had up to Velious and I bought Evolution and it worked for all 5 expansions.
