Server Merge Guide

copied to clipboard

Greetings Adventurers,

As you may have heard, we are planning to merge some servers in order to offer you a better experience and make sure you fully enjoy the game when it comes to match-making systems such as the recent Region Scramble system we released.

◈ The exact server merge schedule and details will be announced with a future post.

◈ Please note that all the details presented below are subject to change prior to the server merge start.

Please read on below to know what to expect regarding the server merge.


◈ List of Contents

06. Homestead - Storage Item Merge


 

01. Characters - Merge Subjects

☾ Server Merge will happen by region. This means Asia servers can only be merged with Asia servers, America servers can only be merged with America servers, and Europe servers can only be merged with Europe servers. 

Adventurers owning characters in the respective servers to be merged that have more characters than the 4 character slots to be available after server merge is complete will be subject to character consolidation.

  1. Even after server merge is complete, the max number of character slots is 4 (Default 2 + 2 Expansions). Out of the servers to be merged, character slots are applied according to the server with the most character slots.

  2. Excluding the applied character slots after server merge is complete, any expanded character slots that were purchased but cannot be used will be returned as Red Butterflies to your in-game mailbox.

Ex.) Refer to example below:

Example Situation: I have multiple characters across Server A, Server  B, and Server C:

Before Server Merge, on Server A I have:

Before Server Merge, on Server B I have:

Before Server Merge, on Server C I have:

2 given character slots filled with 2 characters

+

No additional slot expanded

 

= Total of 2 characters owned

2 given character slots filled with 2 characters

+

1 slot expanded with 1 additional character

 

= Total of 3 characters owned

2 given character slots filled with 2 characters

+

1 slot expanded with 1 additional character

 

= Total of 3 characters owned

After Merging Servers A + B + C, I will be able to keep the following:

Total 3 Character Slots (2 given character slots + 1 expanded character slot) applied.

 

→ Since character slots are applied after server merge will follow the server with the most character slots, it will be like having just Server B or Server C transferred over. This means the 1 remaining expansion slot not applied will be converted to Red Butterflies and sent to the mailbox.

 

*Character Slot Expansion Ticket costs 200 Red Butterflies each

I started with 8 characters, how many can I keep?

Since 3 character slots are applied after server merge, you will be able to keep 3 characters. The other 5 characters exceeding your slot count after server merge are subject to consolidation.

ⓘ A max of 4 characters can be owned after server merge is complete (Default 2 + 2 Expansion), and characters are not subject to consolidation if the number of owned characters is fewer than the number of owned slots.


 

02. Characters - Merge Rules

☾ The following rules apply when consolidating your characters on the merged server.

  1. When logging in for the first time after server merge, a list of all your characters can be viewed in the 'Temp Character Slots'.

  • Characters that have been placed in a 'Character Slot' cannot be returned to a 'Temp Character Slot'.

  • Starting from the moment a character is placed in a 'Character Slot', the 'Temp Character Slot Usage Time (90 days)' starts to apply.

  1. When the 'Temp Character Slot Usage Time (90 days)' runs out, all characters except those placed in a Character Slots are consolidated automatically.

  • If there are open Character Slots when the time runs out, characters are placed automatically by order of 'Max Level → Owned XP'.

  • Characters that have not been placed due to insufficient Character Slots will be lost along with the Character Expansion Slot UI.

  1. Character deletion is available during the 'Temp Character Slot Usage Time (90 days)'.

  • What are the wait times to have your character deleted?
