Master Keys to the Kennels

You will always keep any items that have been purchased with gems (see footnote A below concerning "limited edition equipment"). These include eggs, hatching potions, quest scrolls, food, avatar customization purchases, and backgrounds. You will also keep achievements and gems.

Reset Account resets many parts of your account, including tasks and histories have been playing a short time and want a fresh start or have returned and wish to "start over"

A You will lose much of your equipment but you will be able to repurchase all gear. You will need to be in the correct class to re-buy class-specific gear. All limited edition equipment that you had previously purchased (for gold or for gems in the Seasonal Shop) will become available to be purchased again for gold (not gems) in the Market area, even if it is no longer available to new players. Equipment from the Enchanted Armoire which the player had previously obtained will be available in the Market area to be bought for 100 GP and it will also be available again in the Armoire.

B Your Battle Gear is changed but the old gear remains in your inventory.

Fix Character Values options

You can use the Fix Character Values feature to reset your level without affecting any of your inventory or stats, so you could change your level to 1. However, this is not a true start over option because your stat points are not reset; you will still be as strong as you were when you were at the higher level.
