China's B&S OBT FAQ
And with OBT just around the corner, I'm pretty sure you have some questions on how it's all going to work.
Hope this can answer most of your questions.

1. Does the OBT need an activation code?
No, no need for an activation code. You can login directly to your preferred region and server using your QQ login.

2. When does the OBT starts?
It's expected to start at 2PM GMT+8 on November 28th. Check this link to see the equivalent time in your timezone.

3. Where can I download the OBT client?
The client can be found here, in the download page (choose the options with a thumbs up if you're in doubt). If you got any problems, check the Installation Guide (currently only in Chinese, Google translate link provided). Client version is: v1.72.4010.4.

4. I am a CBT player, do I need to redownload?
There's no need. Around 12AM GMT+8 on November 28th you'll be able to download and update your game using the launcher. In case you encounter some problems, a manual patch will be provided that will be found in the Download page.

5. Will CBT players suffer a character wipe? Is there going to be a wipe after OBT?
No wipe is going to occur to the CBT players, and the OBT characters will carry over to the retail version. There will be no wipe.

6. Is there a new area and new level cap?
Yes, level cap is going to be raised to 45 and a new area will open for the 36 - 45 leveling range.

7. What are the regions available? And the servers?
All the regions opened so far, and their servers, will be available when the OBT starts.
That includes 电信一区, 电信二区, 网通一区, 电信三区, 电信五区, 电信六区 and 网通二区.
The Dojo servers will be located on the region 电信二区, server 斩天诀, and on the region 网通一区, server 咆哮寺院.
If necessary, more servers will be opened at a future date.

Regions and Servers. Red circles indicates Dojo servers.

8. Which region should I choose?
Choosing a region with a lot of english players is a good choice, but not always. Check the ping for each region and make your choice.

9. Is testing still occurring?
Of course, before the official release, there's still a lot of thing to test. Features, game content, localization and several bugs still need some work on them.
Having in mind the scale of this phase, the main focus is the server capacity and pressure.

10. Is there any known issues?
There's currently some know issues with the achievement system not registering all the achievement, but we're trying to fix that as soon as possible.
The game currently doesn't work with Windows 8.1. Use Windows 8, or previous, if possible.

There's still some questions to be translated. If they are, they'll be added to the topic and I'll post a notice about it. If you still have questions regarding OBT opening, be sure to post them in this topic!

[CN] Pre-Character Creation Event Update - New Server Tomorrow
In just 9 hours all the 3 new server reached max quota meaning many players that had yet to create their character were not granted this opportunity.
We that in mind, a new server is going to be open tomorrow for more people to have the chance.

The server will be called 电信六区 and will open at 12PM GMT+8, 24/11.
Don't forget that the event ends at 10PM so you'll have 8 hours to try the character creation, if that new server doesn't reach max quota too.

All of these servers will be open once again on the 28th, so don't worry if you currently don't have a chance to create a character on your preferred server.

[CN] Pre-Character Creation Event FAQ
I know you're all excited to create your first character. It's been so long and you're finally this close!
But first, let's see how all this is going to work out. We don't want to make any mistakes, do we?

Q: What is this event all about?
A: This event serves for you to choose your server, race, class, appearance and all that before the official opening of the server on the 28th of November.

Q: I want to participate in this event, what do I have to do?
A: For that, you have to download and install the Open Beta Client. Then, from 23rd November 12PM GMT+8 to 24th November 10PM GMT+8 you'll be able to create your character. Be careful that each server has a maximum quota and when that quota is reached servers will start to close down. That might make the event end before planned.

Q: Can we create more than one character?
A: Each account is limited to create only one character. If you are not satisfied with your creation you can delete it and then re-create it.

Q: Where can I find the client?
A: The client can be found here, in the download page (choose the options with a thumbs up if you're in doubt). If you got any problems, check the Installation Guide (currently only in Chinese, Google translate link provided). Client version is: v1.72.4010.4.

Q: What servers are open to this event, which aren't?
A: During the event you'll be able to create characters in these servers: 电信三区, 电信五区 and 网通二区. The servers 电信一区, 电信二区 and 网通一区 will not be open during this event, hence you cannot create characters in these.

Q: Is there something special I need to do to participate in this event?
A: No, as long as you have the Open Beta Client and a QQ account you're ready to go.

Q: Can I change servers during the event?
A: No, after you select a server you're bound to that server. You can however create and recreate your character there.
ATTENTION: It can not be confirmed if this will bound your account to that server even after the OBT starts. So if you want to go to one of the inaccessible servers (电信一区, 电信二区 or 网通一区), we suggest you wait till the 28th to use your main account on the desired server.

Q: Why did some servers suddenly disappeared? Will they re-open?
A: When the number of character created on that server reached it's max quota, that server will closed and be hidden. On the 28th, these servers are going to be open again and if you so desire you can create your character there then, even if you didn't during this event.

Q: is it possible to purchase in game points (for VIP and cash mall items)?
A: Yes, but you need to wait till the 28th, when servers open, to you can claim your points.

Information for CBT players:
During this event, your gameplay will not be affected.
However, if you try to join one of the new servers your client will update to the OBT client and be unable to reenter on the first three servers.
If you do not wish to participate in this event, do not enter on the 3 new servers, 电信三区, 电信五区 and 网通二区.

If you accidentally upgrade to the OBT client version, download the rollback patch and it will return you to the correct CBT client version.

The amount of Chinese content is increasing and currently the Dojo doesn't have anyone to help them in that department. Open Beta Test is just around the corner and with that more people are coming in with a dire need for knowledge. Knowledge which they will not be able to understand due to the language barrier. And that's where you'll come in! If you're interested in joining our translation team, read the information below and send in your application via private message to Sekuiya.

What does a translator do?

  • Help create guides about features of the game.
  • Be on your best behavior at all times. Make this a warm and welcoming place.
  • Be helpful! Provide detailed solution if you know how to solve a members problem.

You'll have to meet the following requirements in order to volunteer for Blade & Soul Dojo's translation team. We ask that all potential applicants meet these requirements before submitting their application.

  • A clear understanding of the English and Chinese languages.
  • Some translating experience is a huge plus but isn't required.
