Character creation

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

  • Choosing 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.
  • Choosing 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.
  • Selecting from a variety of cosmetic options, like hair styles and colors, skin color, tattoos, etc.
  • Choosing a 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.
  • Choosing a Burial Gift to start the journey with — None of the selected items are required in any form, and all of them can be found later on in the game.
