I just started playing GW2 again and some names I want are taken. Are names account specific meaning only one person on the whole game can have that name or is there a possibility I can use the name on a different world? I don't mind changing world to a new one, my highest character level is only 28. Can anyone help?

Character names are global. If someone on 1 server has that name, no one else can use it regardless of what server they play on. This is probably because you can 'guest' other servers and communicate with players on those servers. I'm not sure if this is limited to regions like US/EU or if it's entirely global though.

Agreed. It took me forever and a half to come up with a name...

are these all the working special characters for guildwars? The site helps a lot instead of searching through character map and most in there don't work.

I only tested and used a few of them. Not all of them work, you'll have to go with trial and error. Also, it's possible they've blocked out some more of these characters since I made my character over a year ago.
