Name reservations were rewards for backing at the Pioneer level and higher and are currently available through the Voyager plus pre-order pack and Adventurer pre-order pack.[1][2][3]

  • Accounts will have name reservation tokens, that entitle its holder to reserve a name on a specific server when the reservation time comes.[4]

Name reservation priority

Name reservations will be allocated from the highest backer tier to the lowest backer tier.[5]

  1. Kickstarter backer tiers, highest to lowest.[6]
  2. Summer crowdfunding backer tiers, highest to lowest.[6]
  3. Pre-order packs purchased from the web store.[6]

Within each tier, the name reservations are on a first-come-first-served basis.[6]

Name reservation availability

Name reservations will begin during Alpha-1.[7]

Server reservations

Server reservations allow guild members as well as unaffiliated players to reserve character slots on a server starting in the Beta testing stages of the game.[8]

This would likely be utilized more so by guilds than that would be solo or unaffiliated players; and I believe that the solo player they may have friends that they want to play with. That's fine, they can also still with those friends do the reservation system, but the player who is just joining the game fresh and doesn't have a community that they're part of, I don't think they really mind in that regard and will not utilize that system.[8]Steven Sharif

Character names

Characters will have a first-name and an optional surname (last name).[9]

  • There is a minimum length of three for a character name.[10]

Character names will appear on the character sheet and optionally on the character website page.[11]

  • In-game a character's name is displayed above their head. This can be the first or last name.[11]


A character's nameplate is displayed above their head.[11]

  • This can be the first, and optionally last name (surname).[11]
  • The name of the character's Guild is displayed next to their name.[12]
  • The character's nameplate will deteriorate to give an indication of how much damage they have taken.[13][14][15]
  • An icon will identify the character's class.[16]
  • Hovering over the user's nameplate will show information such as level, their class name and archetype combo.[16]
  • A buff icon indicates the character's gear and grade.[16][17][18]

Summoner summons' creature type appears in the nameplate above the summon. This cannot be changed by the player.[19]
