none of the links are proper form and redirect from benchmarkemail which seems to be an email marketing campaign company. as security protocol, I avoid any emails that don't proper linking.
However, I use a specific email that doesn't link to RO in anyway outside the game itself so the chance that it's legit is higher, but the design of it looks poorly done so either the person responsible was lazy designing this or WarpPortal had our emails leaked.
btw, it doesn't matter if account is provided if you're visiting a site that's preloaded with a rootkit/malware and you get hit up, all you'd need to do is click the link.
I personally don't see why they couldn't hosted the client on their own servers which would automatically verify the authenticity instantly.
If you know what's best for you, don't click it unless confirmed.
