I logged inn to my level 80 char, who i havent played since like a year after relase or so. I do not have a sub now, trying the free play, i only have 2 now gold on my level 80 char, i am pretty sure i had alot more gold on that char. Do i get back the gold i had if i sub again, or is that gold lost now ?
The gold-cap from free to play is 10g. So if you log in with 2 gold it has nothing to do with being subbed or not. And who knows either you had 2g or maybe the databases got your gold wrong at some point. But its for sure gone sadly.
Money is easier than back in the day to obtain so dont worry about that.
