Alternative Characters

More Clarifications:

NO alt interaction falls under the causing drama part. Don't argue with yourself in chat, don't PvP yourself, don't send yourself pets, don't rez yourself.

Players that are found to have referred their own alts will be punished by having their mains locked. This is cheating. Danilo is generous enough to reward you with donation points for bringing in NEW players. Don't turn around and disrespect him by taking advantage of his generosity.


Clarification on alts and changes to the rule.

You many only have up to 4 accounts per IP, so if there are 4 different people on your computer playing, you cannot have an alternative character. If you exceed the 4 account limit, the HIGHEST account(s) will be locked. So if there is 6 accounts, the two highest will be locked and you will no longer be able to use those accounts. THIS INCLUDES ANY ACCOUNTS ON YOUR IP THAT MIGHT NOT EVEN BE YOURS THAT PUT YOU OVER 4! So be warned, your account could be lost if you let someone with 4 accounts already on it.

Also, you may only have alternative characters if you plan to play them, alts created just to start drama and issues with other people in chat WILL be locked(this means ALL level/VE alts).


Just because this is not located under the rules in the FAQ yet, does not mean it is not a rule. This change to the rule was approved by Danilo and WILL be added once he gets to it. If you have had accounts locked because you neglected to read this in the first place, that is your own fault for not reading the blog. The owl the system sends out when there is a new blog post tells you:

Please note that blog entries contain important information about Hogwarts Live. This information is not limited to the following: game updates, rule changes, warnings, and notices about downtime and bugs. If you fail to read a blog post outlining a new rule you will not be shown mercy when you break it.

well these revisions certainly make the rules clear as day as far as i can tell. if i may ask though Witchy or Spinal or whoever is able to clearly answer this: if someone is logging a friend's account for them to level them for them does this count against them as part of that 4 limit per IP? i know something was said along those lines but i just want to be clear i'm understanding this right.

There is three people in my house that play, but we use two different computer, but were all wireless, so our internet is the same source, does this count as same IP, or is IP based off computer? Because two of us have alt, so technically we have 5 accounts in my house, but 2 our on one computer and 3 are on another. Is this okay, or should we get rid of the alts? Were not really attached to one of them so it's not a big deal. And we didn't refer the alts, I only refered my two sisters. Is there anything we can get in trouble for on this?
