Q: Can I log into the game or transfer my points during merging?
A: No, you won’t be able to log into the game. Meanwhile, transfer points function will be disabled, too.
Account & Character Related
Q: Will my account change after merging?
A: No. You still can use the same account and password to log into the game.
Q: Will this merge effect the amount of points I have in passport or the number of gold I hold in game?
A: No. Both your points and in-game gold will remain the same.
Q: Will my characters still there after merging?
A: Character data merging will stick to the following rules:
1) The following rules is applied to the characters under ONE ACCOUNT.
2) For example, you have more than 3 characters in Jade dragon, Golden Serpent and Iron Monkey server. We will pick up 3 highest-level characters from those 3 servers, and transfer them into the new Jade Dragon server. If there are characters with same level, the one with more coins (including the coins both in your package and in the warehouse) will be saved. To avoid unnecessary lost, please transfer your items and coins into such 3 characters that will be saved before merging begins, other characters will be deleted after merging.
3) To reduce the server pressure caused by merging such large number of data, all characters which has not been logged in the server within 60 days and character’s level lower than 20 will be abandoned. We apologize for any disadvantage it will make.
4) You can take the following pictures to clearly see the merging rules and think how to keep the character you want. Rules in the examples listed will be applied to not only the first three servers, but also the latest three servers:
Q: What if I have same name with other’s from different realm?
A: If the realm your character belonged is kept as the new realm, your name will stay the same as usual. If your realm is merged into another realm, a suffix will be added to your name. For Example, there are 2 characters named LuYan in both JD and GS. When the merge finished, the character LuYan from JD will remain the same and the character LuYan from GS will be renamed as LuYan@GS.
Q: Will my in-game items and coins disappear after merging?
A: If the character is transferred into new realm, all items and coins in this character will be kept. If your character isn’t transferred into the new realm, all coins and items it had will be deleted.
To avoid unnecessary lost, please transfer your items and coins into such 3 characters that will be saved before merging begins.
Friend & School Related
Q: Will my school be saved into the new realm?
A: Yes. We will keep all the schools in game. Your school will have the same status like before, same school fund, same school reputation and same items in school warehouse.
Q: What if our school name is same with other’s from different realm?
A: The solution will be similar with the issue of character name. If your server is merged into the other one, a suffix will be added to your school name.
Q: We are the current Top School (Elite School) in our server, what will happen after merging?
A: New school prestige will be counted at the second week after merging, but you still are able to use those Top & Elite school items in the first week.

A: The selling items will disappear.
