Once you have launched your game, select the server you want to play on and which channel you would like to enter. I recommend joining the Calpheon (칼페온) server, not the server shown in the screen shot, because this server is where most English speaking players are.

Sever

Next click “Create Character” and press “yes” to confirm. You will now be taken to the class selection screen.

Character creation

Choose your class by clicking the icons at the top-right of the screen. All classes are gender locked. At the bottom of the screen information about the class is shown as well as a quick video and back story. Once you are happy with the class you have selected, click “Next”.

Class select

These are the tools for creating your character. I began by using the customize tool to change the hair.

Breakdown

Here you can customize your characters hair. Hair types with a “P” icon are only available through cash shop purchase.Hair type

Here you can customize the shape of the hair. You can change the length by adjusting the sliders as well adding curls to the hair. You can also change the shape by clicking and dragging a piece of hair.

Hair shape

Now you can customize the colour of the hair including the base colour, highlights and roots. Once you are done customizing the hair click the “x” at the top-right of the window to go back.

Hair colour

These are the options for customizing the face. Here you can change the shape of the face, skin colour, add make-up, change the colour of the eyes, add eyelashes, face tattoos and wrinkles.

Eye colour

These are the options for changing the body. You can change the shape, add muscle, tattoos and create an original pose for your character.

Tattoo

Next, I went to the “Character Action” tool. This tool is just to view expressions, costumes and poses. You cannot choose which outfit to start off with in this section.

Pose

The weather tool is to view what your character looks like at different times of the day and in different weather conditions.

Weather

Here you can change the zodiac sign of your character. Zodiac signs effect the personality of your character and are influential when using story exchange with NPCs.

Once you have finished customizing your character, enter a name and click “Customization Complete”. You can also click “Save Customization” to open the character up at a later date.

Natural Hair Colors Tutorial

Below are some general options to follow in order to achieve a more natural looking hair color. You may need to teak the settings slightly to get the color you want. It depends on the hair style you choose, I found that it was much harder to get the right color on straight hairstyles. These options work best for curly or layered hair styles. The blonde color is actually probably the hardest one to get right because it ends up looking way too green to me. My model for this part of the tutorial was the Kunoichi class.

    I took me ages when I made my first character and I hardly changed it! We’ve literally just added a quick section for making more natural hair colors 🙂

    Oh God, it’s going to take me days to get past the character customization…
