    Any chance of name changes in the future? I spent three hours trying to get onto the server of my friends last night, and picked a last name without really thinking about it (since it appears only after you pick a server), and I'm not overly happy with it. If it weren't for the server problems, I'd just do it right now.

    However, it's a very minor vanity thing, and I don't feel like waiting another three hours just to change my surname. So does anyone know if name changes are on the horizon for this game later on? I don't mind fees for this kind of thing, so as long as it's available eventually, I'd be happy.

    Also, what, exactly, does the Fantasia, the 30 day subscription award, allow you do? When I checked out my Legacy Characters, I was given the option to change EVERYTHING about them, including Race and Name. Does Fantasia allow you to do the same, only keeping things like levels and inventory? And does anyone know if this will also be a purchasable service in the future?

    Name and race are pure vanity for me, and I tend to get really picky about them, to the point where it cripples my early enjoyment of games like these. It's essentially a small bit of OCD on my part. Knowing that services like this are options (or will be options) calms that part of me down, knowing that I'm not forever stuck with choices I made before I really started playing the game, even if the changes are costly in real cash.

    Why not just restart? I can't imagine you're too far into the game. I just restarted my hero and I was level 16. I'm picky like you.

    They are implementing a barber shop which allows you to change your appearance I believe. I don't know if race/name can be changed.

    They are going to have service rewards, for your first PAID month of service you get rank level 1 rewards which are a wind-up cursor minion and a ONE time only Gender/race/appearance change.

    If you paid 30 days of subscription you'll get a reward.

    The first rank (1) will get you;
    Fantasia: Legend states that any who drink this mysterious liquid before lying down for the evening will awaken a new man (or woman).
    Grants you a single opportunity to edit your appearance in the character creation screen upon your next login.


    Which is only given out once you paid the 30 day.
    Unless you choose the 3rd rank, where you get it instantly.

    No name change services for right now.

    The reason I don't do it right now is solely because of the servers. It took me three hours to get a spot on a server with my friends.

    Anyway, that thing takes care of race, so that's good to hear. I'll remake for name. Hopefully servers are cleaner tonight.

    EDIT: Exodus isn't letting me make characters right now. Is that likely to improve if I unmake my current character?

    the phial does not say anything about race chance, it says appearance and gender, but nothing more.

    It has been mentioned that you can change your race as well.

    Just used a Fantasia today and I can confirm that it DOES let you change your race, however, your name can NOT be changed in this way.

    No, servers reset at the start of the day and then close for the reset of the day once the limit of logins has been reached no matter what.
