After months of teasing, World of Dragon Nest reveals details on the upcoming server merge

World of Dragon Nest Release

World of Dragon Nest has recently posted some very important information about the upcoming server merges on their social media page. 

Server merge happens when the population in a server dwindles in number, thus migrating the player’s account to another server happens. This is a typical occurrence with games that has multiple servers but can only occupy a limited number of players just like in WoDN. 

Here is the full list of servers that will be merged:

  • Group A – Cerberus, Apocalypse, Typhoon Kim
  • Group B – Manticore, Minotaur, Sandworm
  • Group C – Fell Guardian, Tacitus, Rose
  • Group D – Lily, Argenta, Velskud
  • Group E – Geraint, Cassius III, Deckard
  • Group F – Kayleen, Terramai, Karacule
  • Group G – Nerwin, Barnac, Lindsay
  • Group H – Loffy, Berlin, Karahan
  • Group I – Lunaria, Aisha

Server merging comes with a couple of hurdles that needs some crafty problem solving solutions. WoDN was provided solutions and answers to these conundrums that you will most likely encounter when the merge happens. Please be sure to read them carefully to avoid confusion, as well giving you time to plan ahead.

About the list of Servers after the merge:

  • You can connect to your own server as usual, or to another server in the group which connects together.

Duplicate of Guild Names:

  • Guilds with the same name will automatically be renamed by the system. (By adding #No. behind the name.) So if there are 3 guilds named Enduins, one will remain the same but the other 2 guild will now be renamed Enduins#1 and Enduins#2.
  • The Guild Master of a guild that has been renamed by the system will receive x1 Guild Rename Ticket.

Duplication of Character Names:

  • Characters with the same name will automatically be renamed by the system. (By adding #No. behind the name.) So if there are 3 players named IntroBoy, one will remain the same but the other 2 players will be renamed IntroBoy#1 and IntroBoy#2.
