UPDATES :**Official Announcement : Due to overwhelming response, the Create a Char event has ended earlier than expected. The newest server 电信6区was filled up in 2 hours. With that we wrap up the event and look forward to seeing you guys on the 28th Nov during OBT. Ciao~**
For players who did not score a chance to create your character, fret not, get your launcher ready and read through all the guides in this forum to prepare for the 28th of Nov. I will be throwing out a few more posts to make your entry into the game as smooth as possible. I tried my best to reply comments as timely as I could and I would like to thank the helpful members for attending to some of the queries posted here. =)
Starting from today, you will be able to download your OBT client. Please click on the link here to proceed to the download page.
Select the option in orange as stated below and start your download. The option beside is currently unavailable, and it means high speed download. Should that option be available at a later time, please feel free to try that too.
File Version : v1.72.4010.4
File Size : 7.99 GB
The game downloader you see is very much similar to the CBT game downloader.
Note : This launcher will have no access to the game until the OBT date, 28th of November. You will be given an opportunity to create your character on the 24th Nov.
Installation : Once you install the game launcher, you will be prompted to install DXSETUP and vcredist_x86, so please make sure you install these software as well. DO NOT reject the installation of these two files or you risk running into launcher problems later on.
Below the page , there is the CBT Launcher. Please do not download this launcher anymore unless you are a CBT player who accidentally downloaded the OBT launcher and messed up.
**Only take part in Event 2, the rest are not applicable for Foreigners.**

For the rest of the errors, its usually due to corrupted game file download. The best timing to download is 12am (GMT+8) onwards as this half of the globe is sleeping. The second most common mistake people make is setting the wrong system locale. Please set your system locale to Simplified Chinese PRC while installing and playing Blade and Soul. It will not affect your usual keyboard inputs or web surfing.
