Extra Installs You Might NEED!:
If you are running Windows 8.1, the game might not work for you. You might have to use this patch. Please follow the instructions on the thread and read the thread for more help. I have Windows 7 and can’t help with this myself.
You might be laggy as poo. This is because you’re connecting to servers in China. You can use boosters to fix this. My whole team here had issues until we started using the booster. Problems are usually apparent during the first few quests where you might click to talk to an NPC, but the NPC doesn’t respond until several minutes have passed! Here’s a helpful link with some boosters!
* Yes, this version is FREE TO PLAY.
* Yes, the English patch works quite nicely but it is incomplete and doesn’t cover, as of this writing, much beyond the first few quests and menu items.
* No, this is not the original Korean release. It’s a second Chinese release.
* You were born in 1996 or before. In the month of January. Around the 5th. *COUGH*
* No, you don’t need a real passport. That would be creepy.

* Having problems with a three character box popping up?

The solution is:
Rename the folder that has Chinese letters (the game folder) to Blade and soul then select Chinese PRC on your language bar, and start the game. The message will pop again but it has 4 letters captcha that you need to write in that white box :D. then press the left red button out of the two buttons at the bottom.
The message translated: “Or Security Center has found that your account is abnormal. To protect your account, please enter a verification code (captcha), which can prevent you from being automatically logged off.”
The original message is “安全中心发现您的账号存在异常。为保护您的账号安全，本次登录需要输入验证字符，这可以防 止恶 程序的自动登录。
If you cant cant recognize the captcha press, the characters that is in red and underlined.
