The Character Name Change feature was introduced with the Fourth Anniversary content update and allows players to change the name of one of their characters without deleting that character or losing access to his/her equipment, skills, and other customized errata. The service costs $14.99USD or €12.99 and allows for a single name change.

This service allows you to change the name of a single character.

How to redeem

Once purchased, choose the character you would like to rename from the Character Selection window and click the Rename button in the bottom left corner of the screen. Enter that character's existing name and new name into the fields provided in the window that appears.

Notes[edit]

Anomaly Anomaly.Customized equipment belonging to characters whose names have been changed will display the name used at the time of customization, rather than the character's current name. The character will still be able to use that equipment, since it is linked to the character's unique (but invisible) ID number.
Bug Bug.Equipment customized "after" the name change will display new name until the player re-zones, map travels, leaves town or exits game. The "customized for" will then display the characters old name.
