Id be interested in this depending on the price...but it really doesnt help that iv never heard of such an account and you have no feedback here. How did you even get an account like that?
I don't trade games on CAG, preferring to get milked by Gamestop.
But have a look at how long I've been a CAG and read some of my posts.
If you want to have a look at my eBay feedback my userid is raiser1 (also on PSN/XBL)
No one's ever heard of that kind of account, as far as I know I am the only one that has one.
I've tried to sell it in the past, but since no one believes me, it's kinda hard.
If you know anyone near Orange County CA, I'd be happy to show it to them.
If some other CAG in OC wants to verify I'd be happy to show it to them too.
I think Skype has a screen share feature, we could video-chat it too.
But honestly you have to look at the screencap I included above and have a little trust/faith.
I haven't the slightest idea how else to verify it without the risk of having the plug pulled.
How I got it is pretty simple. When EQ was VERY new (in the first year) I worked for the manufacture of the servers that it ran on (SGI Origins if anyone cares). I took some support calls from Verant and helped them with the server issues and the guy I was helping offered me a copy of the game. I told him I already subscribe and play EQ and he asked if I'd like to have my account comped. That was a no-brainer. I forgot his name as that was a decade ago... but the account is STILL FREE! Amazing. I am surprised myself that it was never flagged or removed. I just happened to be talking to the right guy at the right time.
There were probably some employees and press that had free accounts, but I've never seen them on the open market. When I last tried to sell it on an EQ buy/sell website (probably 6 years ago) the guy that ran the site called me a liar because he had never heard of a comped account that wasn't a GM.
I know it's worth $15/month to anyone that still plays regularly, or wants to pick up the $2.50 deal in this thread and play a good MMORPG for cheap. I just said PM me an offer. It wouldn't even have to be cash, but obviously that would be preferred.
UPDATE: I BOUGHT it for $2.50 and am downloading EQ and the last decade of expansions from Steam just to log in an get the stats on my characters. Let me know what stats you want and if you know a good tool to "collect" said data (I know they exist). I know for a fact the Wizard has Staff of the Wheel, Journeyman Boots, and some Bone armor as I recall. But I am sure there are much better things available now unless these were nerfed and became rare.
