As a way to make the name-changing process easier and more accessible for players, we're hosting a special event where players can purchase Character Name Change Coupons to give their characters a new name! This coupon will even allow players to instantly perform name changes while still in-game, so if you've been waiting for the right time to change your characters' names, don't miss out on this special event!

Here's how to change your name:

  • Once the event starts, characters Lv. 33 and up will receive a quest notification informing them to go to the Ark Coin Shop. The Ark Coin Shop can be accessed by talking to the Yeti located in Henesys, Leafre, and Nameless Town.
  • At the Ark Coin Shop, players will be able to purchase a Character Name Change Coupon for 400 Ark Coins.
  • Players can then take their coupons to Mr. Newname (pictured below), who will change your characters' names in exchange for one coupon!
  • Your character's new name will be changed instantly after you log out and log back in to MapleStory. Each character's name can only be changed once per week.
