You will not post extremely explicit text or images such as pornography or gore. All content should be safe-for-work. Borderline posts should be hidden with spoiler tags to maintain a SFW (safe-for-work) environment. Please do not post links or images from Imgur. Imgur blocked the Dojo from hotlinking their images with no warning or negotiation offers so any posted Imgur images or avatars will be broken or appear "white".

If you are privately messaged by a moderator for rule-breaking and you wish to contest it, you may do so in the private message but remember that moderator decisions are final. Complaints about Dojo rules, Dojo staff members or the Dojo itself on the forum will be hidden and further action may be taken against your account. If there are changes you wish to see, use the Site Feedback & Support board. Topics and posts may be edited or altered by Dojo staff members due to bad formatting. This can include things such as posts typed in capslock or posts that have content that needs to be hidden with spoiler tags. Moderators may delete or hide posts without warning if the post was not worth writing a warning for. If your post is hidden or deleted and you were not notified, it was done so because it broke a simple forum rule and required removal. Questions & Technical Support Misinformation will be hidden. Constant spreading of misinformation or lazy replies will result in a warning or ban (i.e. “search it yourself”). Blade & Soul Feedback You will not beg NCSoft staff, Curse staff, Dojo staff or Dojo members for gifts, keys, NC Coins, etc unless participating in a specific giveaway.

You will not attempt to buy or sell premium membership. You will not participate in trust trades, such as selling services, trading cross-server, or selling items from the Hongmoon store. Guides You will not create any threads on the Guides board that could not be considered guides. Roleplay & Fan Fiction You will not roleplay in any board outside of the Roleplay & Fan Fiction board. Erotic roleplay (“ERP”) will not be tolerated and will result in a hidden post or deleted thread. Mods & Tools You will not post mods or tools that could be used to give you an advantage over other players (i.e. speedhacks). You will not post extremely explicit mods, such as nudity mods. You will not steal work created by another user. All work must be original unless you are given permission by the original creator of the work to post it on the Dojo. You will not submit mods that infringe on the copyrights of companies (i.e. Sanrio outfits, etc.). You will not submit mods that require users to bypass GameGuard, nor will you that teach users how to bypass GameGuard. Off-Topic Discussion Forum rules #3, #4, #8 and #9 will be loosely enforced on the Off-Topic Discussion board. You will not need to use spoiler tags for off-topic posts, including borderline content, memes, macros, etc. Reputation System You will not use the reputation system in a way that shows bias towards specific members. Repeat Offenders We will no longer be using the warning point system. Instead, temporary bans will be issued to repeat offenders. The decision to ban and the length of the ban will be at the moderators’ discretion. Ban Appeals If you feel you were wrongly banned or that you have changed your ways, you can email me through the Dojo’s contact system (found on my profile underneath “Contact Information”). Your appeal will be discussed by the Dojo staff members before a decision is made. Please note, creating additional accounts (“sockpuppets”) to circumvent a Dojo ban will result in a longer ban of the original account and permanent bans of the additional accounts.

China Blade and Soul FAQs

When will this game be release or even be in OBT for all of us to play it ?

- China Blade and Soul is currently still in Closed Beta ( CBT ) this will be the last CBT you will be seeing, there's a slight difference in this CBT, for people who have access to this CBT of China Blade and Soul, once you reach level 36 in-game, you can invite ONE friend of yours to the game. As for OBT, the closest assumption till date we have is probably 1 month.

Which server will most Dojo members be going ?

- Well, I cannot be so certain of this, but me and my group, and some of them that I have seen around here, most of the Dojo members are in 网通一区.

Will the Dojo Community be making a guild once all of us gets into the OBT ?

- Well, I believe so, but of course, I'm not certain who will be making up a community guild for everyone to join.

Will we get high insane ping when we play China Blade and Soul ?

- If your'e from the NA / EU region, getting a high ping is inevitable, unfortunately. But, there is a few programs that you could use to lower your ping, although it's not a 100% guaranteed, still no harm trying it out.

What should I do if I lost / don't remember my QQ account number / password ?

- Unfortunately currently there is only one way to retrieve your account information, but that would require you to be able to read and understand Chinese. That said, if you lost your QQ account or doesn't remember any info, the only best way is to re-create one.

Where can I download the client for China Blade and Soul ?

- You can get the client here ; http://bns.qq.com/web201307/download.shtml#d_anchor , once you click that link, you will be looking at 3 different chest box, download the 3rd one from the left of your screen, the one which says B&S image on the bottom right of the chest box.

Hi, the fatigue is like a energy. Everybody that plays in China Blade and Soul gets to level to only a limit per day. Once your limit reach, you will not be able to level for that day till the limit resets. There is not a way to remove the "fatigue" that you're talking about. This is to prevent people from leveling ahead too fast. I hope I answered your question.

@sombreblood - Hi there, please read my reply above, that is the answer to your question. You cannot deactivate it, you just gotta wait till the server time resets it before you can take any new quests and continue leveling.

Hi everyone i guess if anione have a screenshot of the options translated in english , im rly lost and i hope someone could help . thx in advance ^_^

Hi, I believe what you're requesting about is the Option Settings of China Blade and Soul and you want it translated in English?

You cannot buy a CBT key, but you can buy an CBT account from 3rd party websites, which of course, will cost a bomb.

Thanks Alex for the translation !

P/S - Get on skype, noob.

As far as I know, as long as there's no error popping up, it's very normal that it will stay there for quite a long time to process the data and stuff, it should move forward soon.

I'm not able to translate them, but I think it's better if you ask for specific items instead of asking for the whole set.

That would probably get your answers quicker. Attach an image if you can.
