    Hi guys,

    So I want to play gw2 again but I've lost both the disc and my serial key.

    I'm currently in the process of gaining access to my login details as I chose a really complicated password that I can no longer remember. Safe to say I'm having a bit of a nightmare.

    Rather than download the client which I assume is a large size could I buy a used disc to install the game and then login with my details?

    The game client is the same whether you install of a disc or download it, so that shouldn't be a problem. Since the disc is likely to not have all the updates on it you will need to download a few GB of content on top of the disc installation anyways. You can reset your password if you remember what email you used to sign up originally.

    Thanks for the info.

    I've tried to reset my password on the gw2 site but it requires my serial key.

    I can't remember my password though. First time this has happened to me as I had to set an overly complicated password.

    hmm. when did ANET start doing that? It wasn't like that a couple months ago when I last changed my password.

    dunno tbh, I am using one of my normal passwords on gw2. thinking about it, it should not be that difficult to reset a gw2 password.

    isn't all you need your email address and your account login name? maybe a security question?

    My only hope now is to contact support but the page doesn't load on my phone or tablet.

    Building a new PC at the moment so once that's up and running I'll try and get back on.

    What's the game like now? I played over 400 hours but haven't been on since last year. Completely ran out of fun things to do.
