Character Creation

Creation a character is usually the first choice the player makes in this game. The character creation process includes the following steps:

  • Choose a Character Name — This choice has no direct effect on the gameplay, but it should be noted that parts of a character name can be considered profanity by the game and will consequently appear censored.
  • Choose a Gender — This option has minor effects on the gameplay, like slightly altered animations, different voice options, and a different appearance of some armor pieces. There is also a certain NPC who's gender will be the opposite of the player character's gender.
  • Cosmetic Options — Hair styles and colors, skin color, tattoos, etc.
  • Choose Character Class — Your class determines your starting equipment, as well as your starting stats and level. This can be important later in the game if attempting to min-max for PvP, otherwise it only affects the early game.
  • Choose Burial Gift — None of the selected items are required in any form, and all of them can be found later.


  • Unused tattoos remain in the files, unable to be selected.
