It lets you copy different presets of other people or share your creation with the community. If you like a preset, you can vote for it on the Preset page.

How To Change Appearance In Tower of Fantasy?

When you start the game Tower of Fantasy, you’ll come to what is the introduction and Gender Choice in the game. There, you need to choose your preferred gender for the character. Make sure you choose the one Gender that you want to use. Because once you choose the Gender of your character, you can’t change it unless you make a new character.

Once you have decided the gender, the game will ask you to name the character. After naming it, you’ll get into the game and play as one of the Default Characters. Don’t worry; these aren’t the final characters you get like other Gacha games. Tower of Fantasy lets you change the appearance of your character. But this phase comes at later stages.

When you get into the game as the Default character, you’ll get into the tutorial game. You will have some missions you need to complete and get through the cutscenes and cinematics. After that, you will wake up in a new area in the game and will be introduced to a character named “Sherly”. Sherly will ask you to finish some of her quests, which will lead you to the ‘Astra Shelter’ quest.

In the Astra Shelter quest, Sherly will take you to a character Celine who is in the Shelter of the ship Bethlehem. As you talk to her, it will lead you to the Character Creation screen. This is the part where you get to customize your character in Tower of Fantasy.

Here, you are presented with a few options. You can either create your character’s appearance from scratch. It can take a lot of time, as you’ll be tweaking the eyes and nose of your character to your liking. If you have already created a character on another server, you can import the character ID. This way, you can load the appearance of your favorite character design.

Copying the Character ID is the same as the Crosshair ID sharing in Valorant. In Valorant, you can copy your crosshair ID and share it with friends or Import a good crosshair from Valorant communities. It saves you from the hassle of moving all the sliders to get that same crosshair in Valorant.

In Tower of Fantasy’s character appearance, you can change the appearance using the same feature. There are many community-shared character appearances that you can change your character into. It too will save countless hours spend on character customization. We saw some great presets; more on that in a while.

Customizing Character Appearance First Time

As you’ll head into Astra Shelter, Celine will ask you to stand on a platform. Once you stand there, a new UI will come that will let you customize your character. Character customization in Tower of Fantasy is extremely delicate. If you were asking how to change character appearance in Tower of Fantasy, here’s how you do it.

At first, you are presented with a total of 5 default presets, whether you have a male character or a female character. On the left side of the screen, you’ll find the option to customize the appearance, hair, and facial features of the character. Each of these then further customizes even minor details of their respective part. We’ll briefly explain each of these aspects.

Before you get further into the character appearance-changing sections of Tower of Fantasy, there are a few buttons that you should know of. On the right side of your character, you’ll see the Share, Lobby, Undo, Reset, and Random buttons.

The Share button lets you share your design with your friends by copying its ID. The lobby button takes you back to the lobby. Whereas the undo button will undo the last change that you did. If you think you messed up the character and want to start again, you can do that by pressing the reset button.

Lastly, the random button that you can press it, and the game will show you a combination of random presets for you to choose from. You can either use these for your character or take an idea from them. If you like one of the random presets, but it feels like something is missing, you can hop onto the settings and change it to however you like it.

Default

As we’ve mentioned above, in the Default section, you’ll get to choose from 5 default presets. If you made any presets in the main menu of the game, they’d come up there. You’ll find them on the top in the Preset button.

Appearance

The appearance section is further divided into three sections, Outfit, Accessory, and Shape of the character.

Outfits

In the Outfit section, you can change from 6 different outfits. This section gives you the option to change the overall color of the dress or customize even that too.

Accessory

Up next, we have the Accessory section. Although there are a total of 3 accessories available, we’re hopeful that the developers will add more in the near future. Two sliders let you change the position of the accessories. Here you can decide if you want them up or down or what size accessories you want for your character.

Shape

Then there is the Shape section. It lets you choose from a preset of skin colors. They go all the way from the lightest skin to the darkest, whatever suits your eyes. You customize the character’s head appearance. With that, sliders let you choose the neck size or the bust size of the characters. There are 3 height sizes that you can change according to your liking.

Hair

There is a whole section devoted to hairstyles in Tower of Fantasy’s Character appearance customization.

This section lets you choose from a preset of different hairstyles or lets you make your hairstyle. For that, check out the ‘Front, Middle, and Back’ settings on top. Once you’ve decided which hairstyle you want, you can change the hairstyle’s color. Tower of Fantasy lets you change the appearance of your hair by letting you choose the Top, Rear, and Back colors.

Facial Features

Facial features are where things get messy. There are countless variations that you can do to your character to completely change their appearance in Tower of Fantasy.

Face

In the face category, you’ll be presented with six different face presents. If none of these suits you, you can change the face size, cheekbones, lower jaw, Chin, Lower cheeks, Lower lips, etc. This customization lets you change your character completely from what it was before. But that’s not all to Tower of Fantasy’s changing character appearance.

Eyes

Then you have the Eyes customization section. This lets you change the eyebrow’s shape, eye shape, and even the eyeballs. If you want to try out the preset for eyes, then you can head over to the Balanced eyes section. There, you can check out the beautiful eyes created by the team of Tower of Fantasy. If anyone fulfills your requirements for the perfect eyes for your character, you can change its appearance as required.

Nose

Then in the nose section, you can increase or decrease the nose’s height. The sliders let you choose the nose’s width too. But that’s not all to nose’s appearance in Tower of Fantasy. It lets you change the front/back feature of the nose too. Lastly, you can play with the nose bridge and make sure it’s of the perfect size.

Mouth

As for the mouth, you can do the same with it as the nose. You can increase or decrease its height and width. It lets you play with the curvature of the mouth and set it to your liking.

Markings

Last but not the least, we have the Markings. The game lets you choose from a selection of Markings. You can position these markings wherever you like for your character. It also lets you choose the color of the markings. Using this feature, the players can make their custom characters that we’ll get to see in the Preset settings.

Once you have confirmed the appearance, it will be your character’s appearance. From there, continue the quest as usual. That is how you will change your character’s appearance for the first time in Tower of Fantasy.

Changing Character Appearing Later In Tower of Fantasy

If you made the best design for your character but later on want to change something about it, or you saw any other good character appearance. Then you might be wondering how to change character appearance at this point in Tower of Fantasy.

You can change the character’s appearance later on in the story too. For that, you’ll need to have your backpack unlocked. Once you get the backpack, you can head into the in-game menu by pressing the Esc key. Next, tap on the backpack to check out the inventory. On the bottom left side of the backpack, you’ll have a button called Outfits. Tap on it and the wardrobe will open up.

The outfits you check are yours, as you’ll unlock them when you progress through the story. Some outfits are locked, so you’ll either have to buy or complete certain tasks for them. These outfits are free to change. You can pick up whatever outfit you want.
