Ok so I was messing around with a few things on my Braver. I equipped the Katana Focus Guard Release ring to start leveling it and at the same time customized Volcanic Carnation to Type 0. Through some manner of folly, or most likely bad programming, I am 90% sure my character got totally screwed over. First off he starts every quest with the Katana gauge maxed out. Sounds nice, but I'm pretty sure it was never like that. 2nd, and this is the major issue, he cannot, even with all his previous gear equipped before this happened, regain ANY gear during the gear's use. 3rd, and again this is a MAJOR ISSUE, his gear build rate seems to still be very low, as if he still has the ring equipped.
I have relogged, changed both his classes, put the ring in storage, and the problem still persists. Segac, my character was just BROKEN. This needs to be fixed NOW as a vital part of my charcater's class has been damaged in a way I can't fix. I can confirm there is some manner of bug because as I was messing with things trying to figure stuff out, my character somehow activated an infinite Katana Gear as the aura around him never went away until changing areas.
This needs fixing ASAP, no doubt someone else will be influenced by this.
