In a game like Final Fantasy XI, losing access to an old character can result in a huge loss of time and effort. Luckily, most games offer server transfers, account reactivation, or other services to help you regain your former avatar. But how much is it worth? A month's subscription? The price of an expansion? How much would you pay to get back an older character for whom you've lost access? Does it vary a lot depending on the resources the character possesses, or do you just want to get back what you lost, even if it's only a little?
