As before, we’ll be publishing the list of character names on the forums at the same time. Take a peek at the list for ideas once it's published, but please do remember that it will quite quickly be out of date as character names are taken.
The same rules apply to this release: players looking to change their name, or wanting to check the availability of a character name, will require a minimum total level of 1000 to do so.
This helps players who have invested time in the game to get the name they want before newer accounts have the opportunity to try.
The minimum level restriction will be removed after 24 hours to allow all members to have a go. Redeeming a bond will not allow you to bypass this level restriction.
Old School players that do not also have a total level of at least 1000 on the live game can only change their name through their account settings on the RuneScape website.
Thanks to the work carried out by the Web Team to optimise performance, the whole process should be much easier for you.
