I know there are already topics discussing what you think your account would be worth in terms of selling, but how much would it mean to you if you lost it? If a hacker stole it from you and offered it back for a price (completely intact, bank untouched, etc.), how much would you be willing to pay (assuming it isn't a scam for this hypothetical situation)? Would you just move on and create a new one, or would you be willing to spend hundreds of dollars to get it back?

Having had one and only one account for roughly eight years of on and off playtime, I think I'd find myself willing to give up a fair chunk of change to get it back if something like this ever happened (assuming it couldn't happen again, and even though I'm not close to max at all). There are just too many memories associated with it.

I'd say let them have it. It's just a game, no need to spend a ton of money on it in real life, because in reality I'm not getting any money back from it.

Finally on here to update that I have officially quit! It's been fun.

If anyone tried that with me, the joke would be on them. I don't negotiate with terrorists. :P

Seriously though, I would just start over again. I don't even pay to play the game, I'm certainly not going to pay just to get an account back.

Check out my blog to read the Adventures of a Big Damn (F2P) Hero.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

I probably wouldn't bother trying to get it back. Or I'd just use the recovery system and hope for the best.

It it was stolen, maybe ~$50.
I wouldn't be convinced that they would return an account with at least $120 "worth" of rsgp. I'd use the recovery system and hope for the best.
If it was locked/banned by Jagex for something I didn't do, I'd use the recoveries and appeals but not pay anything.
