Question About Names

Say ive found a name i really like; however, at the time i dont have a name change stone so i create a lvl 1 UM toon just to hold the name.

Now i have a name change stone and i would like to change my name to the name my lvl 1 um is holding

If i delete the character will the name become emediatly available?

If i die on purpose as a um will the name become emediatly available?


Will i not be able to get this name from my level 1 UM to my main?

If you kill the UM toon, yes it will be immediately available.

In the case that a UM toon dies, a character res can be used so long as the character hasnt been dead for over a year.

Are we sure the name would become available? or would it be held with the dead UM for a year?

If you die and res up and you end up at character screen, the name will be readily available. If you choose to character res the UM that you sacrificed, it would probably have a number at the end of it's name when GM resurrected.

Example:
Name (main toon)
Name-1 (GM Resurrected toon)

Deleted a lvl 1 toon that had a name I wanted. 2 hours later after I checked it was deleted, I used my Name change stone and found that someone had instantly took the **** thing lol.
Either that or it takes until the next maint before it clears the old name?. Kinda like when you use a name change stone and people in your guild still see you in the guild list under the old name (until after maint).

with as many UMs that I have killed in CR, I can tell you that it instantly becomes available as soon as the Character screen pops up.

Yes, I've done this numbers times. Kill your UM, and the name becomes immediately available. Do not delete your toon, its a waste time
