It's here, what all of you have been waiting for. It's official.
China's Open Beta Test is scheduled to start on November 28th!

The OBT client is up and can be found here. If you don't know what to choose, choose the option with a thumb up.

OBT participants will be able to download the client and on the 23rd and on the 24th of November, they'll be able to login to their account and make their first character. They will not be able to go ingame, you'll be restricted to character creation menu. You can only make one character per account. Creation of new characters are only allowed until server's population is at maximum capacity, though what does this maximum capacity refers to is rather unclear.
You can only create characters on the 3 new servers that are going to open for the OBT during this event. Creation in the others will open on the 28th.

If you're one of the first one million to download the OBT client, you will be able to win one of these achievement.

Important notions:
  • OBT client will not grant you access to the CBT.
  • CBT participants will be able to download the OBT client on the 28th. If you mistakenly upgrade before that, there will be a rollback patch in the download page.
  • If you're a CBT participant and you select one of the OBT servers your client will automatically update to the OBT client. If you login using this client you will no longer have access to the CBT.

Valentine's Day, Blade & Soul Style
Valentine's Day is almost here! And of course Team Bloodlust and NCSoft have some great gifts for their players in the form of tantalizing doboks from Kim Hyung-tae.

As far as we understand there will be two types of the angelic white Valentine's day doboks and one black set. We were given a preview of these outfits on the Jin, Gon, and Lyn females, and we might have more to show after maintenance on the 13th.

Happy Valentine's day from the Dojo, Team Bloodlust, and NCSoft!
