Common Problems

I can't create characters on the Russian realms.

The Russian Language pack must be installed in order to play on Russian realms. There are two ways to install the Russian Language Pack.

You may get disconnected the first time after changing the language, as the game will default to the European realms. If that happens, exit the game client and restart the game. This sholuld then connect you to the Russian realms.

Please note that while your game is set to Russian, you will only be able to access Russian realms, and characters created on Russian realms can only have Cyrillic letters in their names. If you no longer wish to play on the Russian realms, follow the same steps as above and select your preferred language.
