You don't lose anything permanently, but All Access membership content will become inaccessible to you until you renew your All Access membership.

  • Character Slots: When you downgrade from All Access, all characters that are on the account will be saved and still be visible to you. If you are over the cap of characters for your account only the most recently logged-on characters will be available for play.  Characters that were created before February 29, 2012 will be allowed to log in regardless of if you are currently over the cap of characters.

  • Spell/Skill Tiers: When downgrading membership, any Rank 2 or Rank 3 spell will stay in your book. When you cast these Rank 2 or Rank 3 spells, they will cast as the Rank 1 version. In any content where there are no spell ranks, you will be able to continue to use those spells as normal.
  • Alternate Advancement Abilities (AA’s): All AA’s already earned will remain usable if you choose to downgrade your membership, but if you are over the limit that you are allowed to earn you will not be able to earn any more AA points.

5. I used to be a Silver member before All Access memberships were available. What does this mean for me?
