Saga of Blood Merge FAQ

What happens when Saga of Blood closes?

All servers will go down for extended downtime on the morning (EST) of February 19th, 2019. During this time, Saga of Blood will be merged into Fury.

Do I get to keep my Saga character?

Yes! Your Saga character will transfer to Fury - just make sure you don’t leave anything in your mail or tradepost! These items will be lost to the ether during the merge. Only your current, active Saga of Blood character will transfer, and all rewards you receive after the merge will be based on that character. Deleted characters will not count.

Does my Saga character have to go to Fury?

Yes, as a PvP server, all characters on Saga of Blood are being moved to Fury during the merge. You will need to use the Character Transfer service from your account page to make any changes. Character Transfers are currently only 600 Funcom Points!

Do I keep the catch-up XP buff from Saga of Blood?

The buff is exclusive to the server, not your character. When your Saga character is moved to Fury, they will not receive that bonus.

What about my character’s name?

Character names will be transferred from Saga of Blood. If there is a naming conflict, it will be resolved according to the following, in order:

  • Recent Account Activity - If an account with a Fury character causing a naming conflict has been played in the last 24 months, the Fury character keeps the name. If that account has been inactive for the past 24 months, the Saga character keeps the name. If both accounts are active, then…
    • Higher Character Level - The higher-level character keeps name. If they’re the same level, then…
      • Older Character Creation Date - The older character keeps name.

Characters who lose their name will be provided a temporary name and you will be able to rename them for free the next time you log in with that character.

What about the Saga Quest Rewards?

As you complete stages of the Saga Quest, you’ll get each reward as an additional, separate claim through the shop window after the merge. This includes everything from the vanity gear, pet, and the power gear. These rewards can be used on Crom or Fury on a character of your choosing!

You can claim each reward once per account, so please choose the character wisely. You cannot claim these rewards on your Saga character.

I still keep the Saga Quest rewards on my Saga character, right?

Yes, your Saga character keeps everything they’ve already earned. The item claims are an additional reward for playing on Saga of Blood.

Will I be able to complete the Saga Quest after the merge?

The Saga Quest will become unavailable after Saga of Blood closes.

What about my guild?

Guilds on Saga of Blood will be transferred to Fury. This includes:

  • Guild Name
  • Guild Bank
  • Guild City

Battlekeeps will not transfer to Fury, but you can contact Customer Service to get your materials back.

My guild has the same name as one on Fury. How does that work?

Guild names on Saga of Blood that conflict with guilds on Fury at the time of the transfer will receive a legacy tag appended to their name.

What happens to my Saga character slot?

If your Saga character is at least PVP Level 1 by the time Saga of Blood closes, you keep the free extra character slot. This means you won’t need to do anything extra after the merge.

I didn’t get to PvP Level 1 before the merge. What happens then?

If your Saga character is below PvP Level 1, your character is still transferred to Fury, but you do not get an extra character slot. You’ll need to make sure you have enough character slots on your account to be able to unlock the character.

Do I get anything for having a Saga character below PvP Level 1, then?

You do! Even if you haven’t done any of the Saga quests, if you have a character on Saga of Blood, you get to claim the Cloak of Selkhet cloak for one character on the account. This vanity cloak was awarded to the Saga of Blood community for killing 1,500,000 players as a server.

Speaking of which, I’m one of the winners of the end-of-server tournament. What happens then?

Fame and glory! If you were one of the winners of the Saga of Blood class dueling tournament, your character name and appearance will be posted on the website and forums for all to honor. You’ll also keep your special cloak and title for that character.


That should cover most of the topics. If there’s anything we missed or anything you have further questions about, leave a comment here and we’ll work to answer. Thank you!


New Event, New Hoard Coming February 19

please make a one time transfer available for free between all servers.

this is the only way for fury to return to activity.

I also recommend keeping the saga buffs and drop rates for pvp on fury. The PvP 10 grind is prohibitive.

ps : thank you for all the fun, backache and broken relationships! well worth it!


#4

OHH at last =)

4.99€—> 600 points lol P…h

Pve server all go crom and not get free…


#5

I have the cloak as a claim available for my saga char…if I use it on the saga character, will I get another one for my main account or is that the only one?


#6

Always saga + one other


#7

Just because it was one plus on previous sagas does not mean its the same this time. The cloak actually looks decent, but if I get one on saga and one on regular account, I want to use the saga one before its ‘lost forever’


#8

Guys please let’s stay on Fury!


#9

Bags packed, heading to Fury…


#10

Welcome to your new home guys, lets have a party :smile:


#11

We need raid leaders to xfer from crom and some experienced tanks. Need to press for open transfers for 30 days like theyve done in the past.


#12

I’d just like to point out that I went from level 0 pvp (14%) to L1 (46%) in 3-4 hours by picking up all the pictish warlord/shaman/? qs in khemi and stumbling on border kingdoms aquilonia end where it was cyling thru fields of slaughter, arena of death & chosen of gullah. despite everyone but me being L80- I may as well have been hitting them with a blow-up toy sword- I got my level. Thank you to the L80 who took pity on me & invited me onto a cap the flag team.
Cheers guys!


#13

I’ll add that if you need that pvp 1. Let the group that are doing events know! They will likely help.


#14

Any official response as to whether the saga char gets this cloak and then its in the /claims for that account? I don’t want to /claim it on saga char if its the only one we get…but I also don’t want to ‘lose’ it by not claiming it before the merge

Thank you


#15

Please make sure to claim the cloak on your Saga character. It should follow the same rules as Saga of Zath; you get the cloak on your Saga character, and then 1 additional claim for 1 other character on your account after the merge.


#16

If i make a character now, can i claim it and after saga ends claim it on Crom? Sadly i xeleted my character since…well he was kinda a waste cuz i didnt really do much with him…unless i can retrieve the saga character? (I deleted him 2 weeks about maybe)


#17

Similar to the Saga of Zach ruleset, you can not get Saga of Blood deleted characters restored. Confirmed in this post from September:


#18

But if i make a new one i still can claim cloak?


#19

According to the rules in this thread, if you have a character on Saga then the cloak reward will be available to it whilst Saga is active AND After it closes … one will be come available on account claims.
So you will need to make a new character on Saga to get the cloak.

Note: if not PvP rank 1, then it still goes to a Fury but if you don’t have a free open character slot available then the Saga toon will be locked … but I get the impression you won’t mind about that.


#20

Yeah i wont mind it. So yeah, i have to uninstall the custom ui it seems…sigh…


#21

No no …just need to rename one part of it … give me a minute to find which part
Edit: so can’t find which part …it’s to do with the login screen interface…but this will do in a pinch I guess …


Or maybe that’s what you meant to do anyways…
