Character Creation and Launch

As part of our launch preparations, characters can be created in advance. You will be able to create up to three characters from the 13th of August onwards. Please keep in mind it that it will not be possible to customize your character or change faction later, so take your time during creation. On PvP realms, all your characters need to belong to the same faction. It is not possible to start playing before the launch on the 27th of August.
