    1) Have 20 RP in the account of the character name you wish to change

    FAQ: But why can't I purchase this coupon to change my name?
    ANS: This item in Cash Shop is a placeholder, not usable yet

    2) Make a thread here - https://mapleroyals.com/forum/forums/name-change-requests.112/create-thread

    3) Enter the thread title and content accordingly
    Title: Change of IGN

    Current IGN:

    Desired IGN:
    1)
    2)
    3)

    I understand this request will deduct 20 RP from my account

    Example of how it looks like
    changeName.JPG

    FAQ: But why do I have to indicate 3 names instead of just 1?
    ANS: Cause the name you want might be taken
    (might need to wait till next server check if the name is taken)
    Note: you may ignore this part if you have reserved the character name with a mule
    Recommended to leave a memo about the reserved IGN
    Note: Both characters are in the same account, I'm okay with name swap if possible. Else you can just give the level 1 character gibberish name

    Create new character and enter the desired IGN
    name.JPG

    If name is taken

    Q: Who can request a forum name change?
    A: Players who have purchased RP at any point in time have the option to receive a one time forum name change for free, or in the case that your forum name falls under our Privacy Policy, if it contains your real name, or is the same as your accounts login ID, we will change it outside of the normal rules for forum name changes.

    Hello!

    I was reading your guide on how to change IGNs and it was stated that:

    "Note: you may ignore this part if you have reserved the character name with a mule"
    I would like to seek clarification regarding that point.

    For example, I had a character with an IGN called "MapleCat" and I would like to change my IGN to "MapleBeast". Could I create a mule to "hold" the IGN "MapleBeast"?

    If so, what happens to the IGN of the mule that had "MapleBeast" after the name/IGN change of "MapleCat" was done?


    Main IGN: Maple Cat > MapleBeast
    Mule IGN: MapleBeast > ???

    I hope my question wasn't too confusing, thank you!

    For me, I left a memo for them if I am holding the character IGN in the same account
    They swapped my character names later on

    Example
    Note: Both characters are in the same account, I'm okay with name swap if possible. Else you can just give the level 1 character gibberish name

    Hey, if you change your name what happens to your friendlist? Does it just rename you in all there lists or do you have to re-add? and what about people you've unfriended? does it also change in there list even tho you don't want them to know

    Should be possible, but the Admin may need some time to double confirm if the account information seems different

    Is it possible to have the RP funds taken out of a different account for a IGN change?

    For example, Account#1 has 20 RP, and Account#2 has 0 RP but contains the character that I want the name change for, so the RP funds are taken out of Account#1?

    The RP needs to be on the account of which a character needs the name changed.

    Will it charge double, if I have a Mule holding the name that I wanted to change to my Main in same account?

    Example:
    Main: Name123 > Name456 - 20RP
    Mule holding Name456 > any name - another 20RP
    Total deduct 40RP? Or it only charge 20RP?

    Only deduct 20 RP

    Do leave a memo about your mule in the same account is holding the IGN
    Example: "holding IGN of Name456 on my mule, you can change it to any IGN"
