    These titles are references to the original Korean class awakening names. We've included them as titles for folks who are fans of the original names!

    That was a typo. Psion's title is "Supernova."

    Well meany time u told us that EU/NA version are special well all right but why now u are so stick to the original when, u know im right, this WG title its shameful for us. Answer me plis is this look like a shaman to u?

    Now I think u know what title will fit to WG
    Show us little more love we can be good just believe in us ;)

  • tosktosk Member

    You need to realize that these title names are what characters are named originally. They added these titles PURELY because MANY people (including myself) love the original names and dislike the meme names we have in the west.

    edited July 2018

    We are not the Koreans we have our own version and we have been proofed of it meany times. We don't have to follow them 1:1 nigher we are so whats the problem?
    Surely its easy to support title when your class have good one like almost ALL OF THEM (maybe except cat, but i'm not a cat so whatever its to me). I rather too prefer Dark Emperor that Noble Void Monk or Shadow Raven that Noble Assassin but will never accept some bla shamans for WG. Meany ppl from NA or EU servers that put some efforts to the WG class are not satisfied with this title. Ask Spiera, WestikWolf, Piwek or Wulfy if they are happy about this. I'm not against your class title dude, keep it good for ya, i'm against shamans for WG... its profanation ;( We are much more that this... :(

  • tosktosk Member

    You missed my point. Original names are original names. It is not up for debate whether it should be "Lightning Wolf God Queen" or "Wolf Shaman".
    Now, if they were to release some achievement titles with whatever cool or not names, it is up to you to dislike them. But when it's a direct translation for a name, It is set in stone. The point i made was not whether it sounds nice or not.
    If you knew Korean and could translate names better, i could understand the complaints.

    These titles were merely for that vocal majority who expressed their likes / dislikes towards original / western names. It is a nice gesture and i very much appreciate it.

    I don't like Catspaw's "Dancing Cat" either, but i don't complain. Also, she is actually called "Cat Acrobat" wherever she's referenced in English, but it is how it is (i do not speak nor read KR, but maybe "Dancing Cat" translates even more accurately, i can't tell).

  • RobertSanRobertSan Member, KOL

    Alrigh~ :love:

  • MeshakMeshak Member

    Whats the buff for classes that cant 2nd awaken yet?

  • So how do i obtain those titles? I have Noble Doomblade, but the heaven destroyer title is not available...

  • J3JYKCPPFLJ3JYKCPPFL Member, KOL

    HEY STUPID EME! DID U FORGET ONE THING??DOOM BLADE PRIME ATTRIBUTES BUFF STILL BUGED AND NO EFECT AT ALL EVEN IN STATE LV 1. WTF IS THIS GAME!!HW MANY EMPLOYEERS IN UR COMPANY ANYWAYS? STOP RELEASING NEW CONTENTS IF U CANT FIX SOMETHING ELSE. Honestly REALLY LOWEST OF THE LOW. GONNA LEAVE THE GAME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IF THIS KEEP HAPPENING.

  • xManiNekoxManiNeko Member ✭✭✭

    If you gonna bash, at least do it to the right company :'D. Enmasse is the publisher not the game developer, that's Allm (who makes the game/patches/fixes). So no they can't "fix" something, because it's not their job XD

    @tosk

    [You missed my point. Original names are original names.]
    Well yeah and?!? Its not about how they named character in the past, on paper concept, on the other place of the globe or whatever. Its about what is/will be in the game on our servers and i don't like it so i'm informing eme about it and wish they change it.

    [It is not up for debate whether it should be "Lightning Wolf God Queen" or "Wolf Shaman".]
    Of course its a debate, its always is and will be! U cant force ppl to just shut up and stay silence when have a different opinion especially when its a game, art or anything that its create for ppl...
    The original names can be even super star mega bla bla thing i don't care as far as its not in our servers. What i care is what will be in our server game and other classes have quite nice while WG have CRAP.

    [But when it's a direct translation for a name, It is set in stone]
    and WHO SAID SO?!? ITS NOT the Korean sewer FFS its English language NA/EU and its already customized, eme can change it if they wanna, that's why they ask community about it some while ago, got it? good, lets proceed

    [If you knew Korean and could translate names better, i could understand the complaints.]
    I can complain about whatever i wanna in my opinion is bad for me.

    [I don't like Catspaw's "Dancing Cat" either, but i don't complain.]
    up to u but im more assertive...

    Conclusion
    If im missing your point u are missing whole "thread". I dislike this title and don't care if they are originally/fake/somewhere under the sea/before Christ or whatever u will try to force me to think i don't like the shaman title i wont accept it and i wish that eme change it.

    P.S.
    Why u are defending wolf shaman title anyway?!? It doesn't harm anyone if they will change it... Changing can only make WG players happy... :(

  • VarioussVariouss Member, KOL

    In-game event text for "Do Your Level Best for Second Awakenings" has a typo for Assassin and Wolf Guardian classes. Their window of eligibility for the event is July 18 at 6 a.m. PDT through July 25 at 6 a.m. PDT.

    so i leveled my character to 25 for nothing GG

    also another typo note, when u hover over the pet gem slot it says

    ''There are three types of Pet Gem, but you may ONOLY equip two at a time.''

    and then we have the beloved event for which i leveled for nothing, lv 69 supply crate gives the element and anger or duelist charm, now if u hover over any of the charms it says example:

    ''[EVNET] powerful fire charm V''

    and it says EVNET for every charm in those 2 boxes

  • tosktosk Member

    @Wujek1382
    Well.. Good to know where you're coming from.

    One thing became clear: you are not the target audience for these titles. You're salty you didn't get attention and that's fine. Well, propose some interesting title-related ideas and push them then, i suppose. :)

    I already explained to you why i defend it. It is up to you to understand the idea and purpose of these titles. I helped however i could

    Me and some friends have not been able to combine accents or pets, those items are greyed out when trying. Charms, artifacts and emblems seem to work normally since they appear highlighted.

    • Upon further inspection actually trying to combine emblems isn't working either even when they are highlighted

    ETA on hotfixes for the numerous bugs and errors from this last patch?

  • 5K4NYXGJDD5K4NYXGJDD Member, KOL

    So are my lvl 43 Vamp and lvl 50 Assassin completely ineligible for the "Do Your Level Best for Second Awakenings" event?

  • DiabelliaDiabellia Member, KOL ✭✭✭
    edited July 2018

    I got no box for leveling a WG to 25. So, the event starts later and ends earlier for WG and we are getting the same rewards?

    If i understand this correctly, Vamp and Psion get a month to level to 70 for the rewards and Rogues get a week? Come on now

    Its a REALLY GOOD update.
    It is nice to see that EnMasse Entertainment has a consent for our mad interests into the Korean names to add them as titles, I'm really happy about that. Can say that the game is headed sort of to the right direction, but since I've played the other versions of Kritika, can we have a sort of entry limited dungeon for Pet Gems? The fact that its an EMP Store ONLY thing as of now and yeah will be a reward from events, but still is kinda turn off. I think we should have some sort of dungeon dropping the inferior to average grades of these gems.
    If I had to make a comment on Kritika Online at the moment, I'd say, "A stuttery/laggy masterpiece". Yeah, the lag issues are one of the main issues in the game, but OTHERWISE, this game is a MASTERPIECE!
    Greetings from KawaiSan (NA)!

    Are we playing the same game? I mean, I love the fact that they're pumping out Second Awakenings but this patch was riddled with bugs and errors which have NOT been fixed yet.

  • DiabelliaDiabellia Member, KOL ✭✭✭

    I just want to know that Psion, Rogues, and Vamp..can we all get the level 69 box at any point between now and august? I dont care about the level 25 box, but I already started a WG, bought it costumes, and got it to 40 before I read that the start date for the level 25 box was an error. The date for the level 69 box is still the same correct? I dotn really care about the other boxes, but the whole reason i started this new character was for the level 69 box.

  • destROYer2357destROYer2357 Member, KOL

    Ohh damn, I was trying to be non-toxic for once, guess there is no good to it. Well, as a matter of fact, good releases in Kritika Online are always accompanied by bugs etc. I was trying to see what happens if I praise Kritika for once. As a matter of fact, this game shows its turning P2W yet another time. Let me not say a word more. I don't want to be toxic to the community. :)
