TalonRO’s Account Management System is an entirely new way to enjoy all that TalonRO has to offer. Our new system links your in-game account directly to your forum account, providing you with a unified TalonRO experience that offers an enhanced level of protection for your information. The biggest change to the new account system is that all ingame account passwords have been reset and it will require all players to hold a forum account. Our goal is to help you successfully migrate to the new system and the steps in this Wiki entry will help you navigate the new changes.

Step-by-Step Guide

Our new account management system will provide all of TalonRO’s players with extra security and worthwhile features that make managing your in-game account convenient and easy to do from our main website. However, this also will require existing players to emigrate their account over to the new system. Most players will be able to make this change in three easy steps.

For some players, this change will be relatively easy, while for others, it will mean a few extra steps. In this guide, we’ll show you how to setup your existing TalonRO account into the new system.
In order to play TalonRO, all players must migrate to the new system as it will be the only way you can log into the server.

You will need a few pieces of information before you attach your accounts:

  • Your in-game account name
  • Your current password
  • Your in-game account’s email address (used at registration)
  • Your forum account name
  • Your forum account password


Step 1: Log into your Forum Account


Step 1.1: If you have a forum account

Log into your existing forum account by going over to TalonRO's Forum Once logged in, proceed to Step 2.

Step 1.2: If you do not have a forum account

You will need to register a new forum account. This process is easy and the following steps will guide you through the registration process:

  6. Once you have confirmed your account via email, log into your account and move onto Step 2.


Step 2: Recovering your In-Game Account password


As all the passwords have been reset, you will need to recover your In-Game password first.

In your browser, head over to: http://panel.talonro.com/recovery.html

Once you are there, simply enter the In-Game account name and the e-mail address that is registered to it. Enter the ReCaptcha code and press OK. You will now get your new password delivered in the e-mail box that you registered the account with.

Step 4: Account Completion


Once you have successfully attached your forum account with your in-game account, you are ready to log into TalonRO! You can also attach additional Game Accounts from this screen now or in the future. However, do note that attaching your in-game account to your forum account is permanent; you will be unable to detach your in-game account once you have completed the process. You can, however, add as many in-game accounts as you wish. You still use your Game Account username and password to log into TalonRO just as you always have done in the past. Once you have merged your accounts, you will use for Forum Account information to log into the Control Panel from the main website. All our In-Game accounts will now be using the same e-mail address as your Forum Account. You are free to change passwords at this point if necessary.

Congratulations! You've successfully attached your Game Account(s) and Forum Account! Happy gaming and we hope that you enjoy the benefits of our new Account Management System.
