    Effortless Title Selection and more! - 7/13/2005

    New Character Title Selection System
    -Currently, when using the services of an NPC bard to change your title, you must pay gil to receive a list of earned titles that you can select from. However, in the next version update, you may see your list of titles without paying. It will still cost gil to change your title, but the price will be lowered.

    -After altering your character's title, the surrounding adventurers will be notified by a /say message announcing the change.

    -Players will now have the option to have one of their titles selected randomly for free once each day (Earth time).

    New NPC Fortuneteller
    -A new NPC will tell the player's fortune regarding character titles and other "elements."

    Keep checking this site for the newest information regarding the version update in mid-July!

    Very cool...


    But why does everyone have to be notified that you changed your title? Seems a bit pointless to me.

    But I DO like the fact that you can browse the titles without paying now, and get a free title change once a day (even though it's random..).

    How about maybe something like, new ways to get Abj.s, rather than something completely useless?

    Stop whining and amuse yourself for hours by changing your title! First one is free!

    Best. Update. Ever.

    definitely a good change, but doesn't really warrant a front page message for something so minor.

    you whiners are lame.

    i think the reason for whining is that due to the nature of the updates - 90% of the update being the stuff they preview. this is all we get and there's probably not but 1 more preview left, as well as absolutely nothing else exciting from the past month of previews. if there's 10 previews then it's a safe assumption that this is about 10% of the update, and that is fucking unacceptable. dajjjw9juewaodihjwaondiwd [email protected] dumb square is

    perhaps but it's not like they would have done anything good if they didn't do this.

    they choose to not do some of the things people are asking for, not they don't have time/resources to do them because they spend it doing minor things.

    there's no reason to bash a minor change that is good.

    i said the NM CFH thing like 6 months ago. it's so simple yet they don't want to do it. Impossible to Gauge = can't call for help.

    how bout they just disable cfh on hnms. theres no reason to allow it in the first place. no one can argue that.

    (and before i post i realized most ppl r gonna go "calling for help on gods during kirin" - kirin is a 24 person fight. if you cant do it with 24 people find a different game.)

    edit: while i was typing the beautiful note you see above, someone posted 'disable call for help on nms' which made me look like a biter. ihydiaf.

    I will continue trying to delude myself into thinking that this patch is not going to suck by focusing on something that I found interesting in today's update.

    New NPC Fortuneteller
    -A new NPC will tell the player's fortune regarding character titles and other "elements."
    What I find interesting is "elements". Does this mean that the new NPC will be able to tell you something along the lines that today is a good day for you to work with fire crystals? If so, that would be utterly fantastic for crafting, skilling up and high quality.

    (Of course there is no way that Square would do something that cool, but I will continue to delude myself so that when the patch comes and none of the cool things that I hoped for come to pass, I will be able to wallow in a deep pool of cynicism and resentment.)

    doubt it, it sounds more like an NPC that will give you character stats like when you were born and stuff like that.

    the whole concept of this system is retarded imo. why get titles from doing quests and missions at all? its to show what you've done recently, not what your favorite title is.

    if that was true, you wouldn't get repeat titles.

    the purpose of a title is to show off any accomplishment, not just the last thing you did.
