It's official! Team Bloodlust finally announced a date for Blade & Soul's Korean launch, June 30th! Yeah, that soon. We're now that much closer to an NA/EU launch.

It has also been revealed that this game will be P2P (Pay to Play), costing ₩23,000 for 30 days. That translates to about $20 or €16, which will be lowered to the average $15 or €13 when the NA & EU versions arrive.

Team Bloodlust will be releasing several packages for those interested in buying more time at a cheaper rate. A 90 day package that comes with two weapon gems and a 180 day package that comes with the same two weapon gems plus a unique eye patch. These packages are only available June 26th through the 29th, right before launch.

Blade & Soul OBT Q&A
We've compiled the most commonly asked questions from our official OBT Q&A thread for you folks. Whether you're fortunate enough to play the OBT or not, the following questions may be useful to you. Be sure to check out our full OBT Q&A thread for loads of must know information. Feel free to ask some questions there as well, we'll get them answered as soon as possible.

Where can I download the game?
We created a dedicated thread here with multiple ways to download Blade & Soul's OBT client.

What is the schedule for Blade & Soul's OBT?
Blade & Soul's (Korean) OBT begins on June 21st at 4:00pm KST (Korean time) and ends on June 30th. Unlike previous closed beta test events, the OBT servers will be up and running indefinitely this time around, with a short 5 hour daily maintenance starting at 3:00am KST and ending at 8:00am KST (Korean time).

What is the Dojo's "official" server?
The Dojo's "official" OBT server is 이심전심.

Will the Dojo have a guild?
No, we will not be creating a guild for the Blade & Soul Korean Retail version. There are quite a few English speaking guilds that could be found if you look around.

Are there any translations for the skill trees?
Yes, for a few. We have very rough drafts of the following classes. All missing classes will be coming soon! Be patient!

Update: Skill trees have been changed for OBT. New translations coming soon.

I'm stuck on a quest and can't read Korean! Can you help?
It would obviously be incredibly difficult for us to guide you through every question but we can list a few that have caused people the most problems. A short guide can be found here.

Can you translate the games stats for us?
Yep! Here is a picture of a character sheet and the translated stats.
Blade & Soul's Korean OBT is almost here! In less than five days Blade & Soul will be taking a huge leap forward, drawing ever so closely to the highly anticipated official Korean launch, which of course brings us closer to our NA and EU versions!

With the OBT right around the corner, Team Bloodlust decided to leave us with a stunning promotional video to help us pass the excruciatingly short time left until servers officially open up.

Blade & Soul's Korean OBT servers go live on June 21st at 4:00pm KST (Korean time). Be sure to check up on the Dojo throughout the event for complete coverage and community discussions! Also, don't forget to check out the Dojo's official livestream! We'll be streaming everyday during NA prime time!

Have OBT access? Join us in-game on the Dojo's "official" server, 이심전심. Be sure to pick the Lawful League (Blue) faction if you'd like to join the Dojo's guild. You get to choose your faction at around levels 20-25, once you enter the Grand Desert zone (second zone).
Korean Open Beta Starts June 21st, Fatigue System Scrapped
Great news, folks! Team Bloodlust is finally kicking things into high gear! With the conclusion of Blade & Soul's third closed beta test event an official letter was released today by Team Bloodlust announcing the games open beta start date, which will begin on June 21st. They've also announced the removal of one of the games latest features, the experience fatigue system, due to all the negative feedback.

Below is the official statement from Kim Taek-Hyun, NCsoft's Business Director.

Kim Taek-Hyun
Hello everyone,

Spring 2012 was a special time for us at NCSoft. We worked very hard to bring you the Soul Party and Appetizing events In April and CBT3 in May.

Not only was the 3rd CBT long but there were a lot of new systems implemented into Blade & Soul. These new features brought lots of feedback and some valid criticisms.

There were things we could fix right away but others just couldn't be fixed right on the spot during CBT3. We will fully reflect on the communities feedback and get rid of the fatigue system and change many other features to bring you a better game in the end.

It is almost summer and we can't wait to meet you again on June 21st for OBT.

Please have faith in us and thank you for playing.

-NCSoft Business Director, Kim Taek-Hyun
