RO2: Job NPCs

I've translated partially whats important on the next upcoming news from the site. This time it's about your Job changing NPCs. Hope you Enjoy!

*I've edited the appropriate names for each Job manager.




Yes I've changed the names. They're not mrs_choco's translations nor anyone elses, expect for my own, apparently these names are becoming an issue, regardless if I give the correct ones. You guys keep sending in mail about the names being right or wrong, when they're just beta NPC names. I don't want to publicly give direct translations of the names cause they're not appropriate to display.

These names will most defiantly change in time, especially going to localized servers. Not to mention these are just the current job managers in development.

The actual translation are of the following:

Benatsu
Reodu
Sahni
Pay/Fay/Pae
Rear
Shuti
Lucy
Steer
[Rokku or Rotsuku]+ [SAN = Mr.] + Antonio
Hiryu

Working under Publishers I know they would NEVER name a character Rear or Steer for woman...

It isn't appropriate which is why the names I've posted was arranged this way. As for the assassin NPC his name can be translated many different ways, his was ment for Korean to Japanese direct and you can find it also being Ropponmatsu which skim pointed out earlier. I picked Roksuku since it's a combination of his crazy name without the last name which means Invisible or Hidden Rock.

In the end, his name might end up being slashed down to Antonio.

I hope this help clears up any mis-understanding with these names.

---------------

Last little note - I was tipped off to visit some websites, and I noticed the translations I provided and Images, are being used without my name for credit. This is simply a warning to you guys, I won't mention any names yet but seriously update your pages. It seems mrs_choco only provided the Names on some of your pages, Not the information I gave out in my wording and detail.

There wasn't a problem with this before as you've shared previous post of mine giving credit. So please update them.

Thank you very much for the translation.

We all appreciate your work.

Rock On! ;-]

Ibari said...

Pretty interesting! At least the job changing quest have its own meaning and story. I hope every quest encourages the "RPG part" in this MMORPG, since most games seem to have lost it...

Rite-style development, very cool :D, though I hope the questing is more choice based/less "heroic". One of the silly things about WoW is "I slew the Witching Serena Bloodfeather, and brought her head back to the Crossroads", but so did everyone else. I suppose this is to say that achieving something through actually playing the game is fun, but quest-based achievements feel pretty hollow.

OMG, Thanks!

This post came first before that post @ the official website arrived @_@

Hello Chris,

I know in Asia the ,,feminine male" look is a standard in games, but is there any chance we will have some options in character creation to make our characters look more like a man ... not 12yo boy ? ;p

Thanks

Ps. Females look good, and I guess you guys improved the eyes ? ;)

Diazepam said...

Ps2. Knight's armor is cool

Ps3. too much bloom ;)

seth said...

omg.. the npc look much more amazing than the players! lol, im totally gonna play ro2LOTS xD cant wait cant waiiiiittt

Silvu said...

Looks cool , but one minor thing is bugging me ;)

Are those "things" on Rouge Trainer's shoulders his hair? :D

Angramanyu said...

Thx Chris !!

We all appreciate your work!²

There are some new notices on kRO2 website, can you translate that for us please? =)

RöK On! =)

Anonymous said...

I have to say, the graphics are REEALLY GOOD! Smooth, well detailed and seems to be fast. And the old anime-like style remains, but much more detailed than the old RO (FFT faces are so cute, btw xD). Reminds me of Florensia, as well, but without the "dead-fish" look.

About the Job Change Quest, i really hope that each Job have your own quest, like the old RO. I'm saying this because seems like this quest Chris showed will have to be done by all players if they want to change their jobs. I know that it's the only example he have yet, but i really expect something that will fit each class profile.

A last question: it has nothing to do with this topic, i know, but will the Assassins be able to use two-daggers at same time like the good ol' times?

And WTH, a bearded Poring!!1

Mic said...

I can't express how I loved these screens... Thank you!

Anonymous said...

everyone looks great, the graphics have improved a lot, thanks for all the updates!! though I'm slightly upset that the sexiest is the priest NPC... I don't know if it's the camera angle and the bloom making her look like that.. maybe you could make her look a bit more like the sorcerer NPC, more reserved and conservative =) (I'm usually a priest in RO and other MMOs xD)

Anonymous said...

I hope that each job change npc has its own location in the future...

Good work, Chris... thank you for the infos.. you're the one!! ;D

MrK.O. said...

Wow, it's amazing! the graphic of the game is much better in these pictures! Great job! loved it! Congratulations!

Felipe said...

i'm starting to get worried, cause a I didn't see any MALE MAGE, MONK or HUNTER, very scared about that :S

choonyeol said...

could you at least credit, when you take the name spelling from another forum? I know you speak korean so I guess it's more out of laziness, but still, that's common netiquette to credit. Besides, the spellings I came out with are very approximate and not even standard. thank you. mrs_choco

jsgnextortex said...

@felipe: the gender was nevr limited in closed betas, dont worry about that man xD

I got CBT 탐험대원이 되신 것을 환영합니다. so I guess im in....

Im amazed by these screenshots, the characters look a lot better now....hope they to be like that in-game...
The NPC's are antialiased, that means we will be having the anti-aliasing option in the beta or we will have to wait to the release??

[Chris Ruiz] Burn said...

@choonyeol:
I deeply apologize for the misunderstanding, those names [Expect for Sir Lyon & Grandmastering] were provided by a Tip off to use, if I had the time to translate the page. Apparently, I should have just stuck with what I had or looked around 1st, but I will admit, the names in Korean to straight English are impractical to display publicly, while I was shocked to see the names written differently than I know them as, I figured to go with the tip off, and so I once again apologize as I’m recognizing your creativity in writing up those fun & simpler names. We won’t know for sure what those names will ever be in English until it's localized. But I hope this clears up any misunderstandings.
I've already added your credit to the page, I hope thats help.
Thank you.

jsgnextortex said...

Ok, in a deep look at the characters....my unique objection is the reflection.....they look like they are made of plastic on the way they reflect light (thats simpleto solve)

Aniway, there is a new screenshot in the official page on the step 3 of gameplay section.....it looks better than before (when the characters skin tone of the head deffered from the body xD)

MarceloSix said...

I know it too soon for that but ..
MVPs have to be huge ^ ^
So far everything is perfect in RO2
Congratulations Gravity and Chris.
You guys are amazing

Dreimos said...

Hey Chris, I was just wondering if you know when the RO2 Beta client will be released? I see the download page now but it says coming soon, any estimated time on this?

skim said...

The second to the last name of the NPC is based on Japanese, hence "Ropponmatsu".

Also, a Tailor is not spelt with a Y.

Lucas Perdomo said...

the quests will be like this only in the closed right? i mean, in the RO 1, every class had his own job quest, all diferent. i hope they will change the quest in the future otherwise t will be desapointing [bad english yeahh!]

[Chris Ruiz] Burn said...

@skim:
Thanks for the Tailor mess up, I've fixed it.

seth said...

did u changed the npc names? i notice that the first one is correct o.o...

XxBlackJackxX said...

yo chris im feeling u bro. its cool man. translations are nice. new names are cool I get where ur coming from. Rear does sound sexy thouh hehehehe /jk. much respect what you did. ur lke representing RO.

keep up the good work.

I Love RO! FLYZ AWAY!!!!

Anonymous said...

Sahni might end up being Sonny, Shanna or Shani? Just my 2 cents. Don't change it fine. If Rear was posted i would have ROFL then tell you WTF is wit the name? but you did not so is cool.

Appreciate your work! Thx
2days to go!

Roksuku said...

Your correct the publishers would change the names. i seen Animes and games go through it likw water. You are representing RO for us, your right the names did not look good to use. Im likeing the new name you made for npc SinX see my name.

Well done sir.
Quick qyestion:Will I See you @ LU-Live2010?

Anonymous said...

I did put source ..so I guess thats kinda a credit?

[Chris Ruiz] Burn said...

@Anonymous:
Yes source is fine. But some of these sites i'm pointing out don't even show the source.

[Chris Ruiz] Burn said...

@Roksuku:
Glad you like the name.

In regards to Live2010 - I should be there again this year.

JP said...

Whatever names they wanted, it's fine... let's remember, the Game is made for Koreans (for now), so whatever names they wanted for the NPCs, we should not be too particular... it's their game... xD

Thanks Chris for updating us...

1 day to go...

Silvu said...

Any idea if someone's making a stream from beta when it starts?
Is it even allowed, as some companies put NDA on their closed beta tests.

Rob said...

Hey Chris, sorry to the mix up on not citing you on one of our more recent posts. We are big fans of both your blog and your hard work. We've made sure to include your name this time and will continue to do so in the future. :)

Anonymous said...

Hi Chris. Thank you very much for sharing all these pre-CBT images and game info. You are doing such an awesome job and I'll be anticipating future updates on your blog.

One question though. Will headgears be visible? Headgears a defining feature in the RO1 but I haven't seen any pics yet that they are.

Again, thank you and keep up the good work. I hope to see you at LU Live 2010. Rok on dude!

[Chris Ruiz] Burn said...

@Silvu:
I was going to Stream it for you guys, but I'm actually not allowed, as developers and special privileges account are not allowed to show what is on their screens during this CBT. Only among the 5k winners are allowed to repost or share their experiences. Parts for a new re-vised trailer will be developed as well using shots from the this CBT.

If anyone wants to share their experiences I'll be more than happy to post it here. Either with live stream or Youtube clips. Just let know.

@Rob:
Thank you for correcting it. ^^

@Anonymous:
Yes headgears will be retuning, some of which are our favorites like Angel Wings, or the bunny band.

Hope to see you at Live2010! Rok On!

Christopher said...

Silvu i was wondering how do you know you have special privilege or developer. for instance my account was already approve before the 5000 people.

Apple Salsa said...

ok this is quite confusing before you posted about the 5000 winners i already logged in and the thing said that I do not need to sign up for anything. all i know is that am i under a special account or will i be able to stream/pics of the game?

[Chris Ruiz] Burn said...

@Apple Salsa:
It was my error I forgot to mention if your a compensated account [obtainable from RO2:GotW] + the 5K.

Special Privileges [VIP] accounts are mainly for Staff members of Gravity and selected publishers.

Developer Accounts are simply accounts for developers under Gravity.

xihan said...

chris, is the CBT only last for 7 days? or i got the wronf info? -_-

[Chris Ruiz] Burn said...

@xihan:

Only 7days for roughly 4hrs.

Server gates will open 6pm[ish] - 10pm. [Seoul's standard time]

There will intense stress testing On September 1 - 4 at 7pm - 10pm. So please expect connectivity issues or other randomness.

Hope this helps!

Swissbit said...

Hey Chris,

I would like to stream my experience on Friday and Sunday.

You offered a HD-livestream, if I remember correctly.

What should I do?

Hyde said...

Hey Chris, thx for all the hard work u're doing!! We all really appreciate what u're doing for us, bringing always hot news and responding our worries!!

I have some questions: will the Sins still be able to use two weapons, like the old RO?

All the equips will have their own sprite? And, being fused with the monsters spirits, their old sprites will change as well, or maybe get new "effects", like auras, sparks, this kind of stuff? The only equips that will appear in the char will be the ones on the head and weapons?

And lastly, the skills will be too much diferent from RO?

Struppi said...

Hi Chris,

I couldn't find another way to contact you, so I'll try it this way.

I wanted to ask you if you're okay with a german translation of your translations (sounds stupid). Of course, we would mention you and give you the credit you deserve. We're some german fans planning on doing a blog about the game.

Are you okay with that?

[Chris Ruiz] Burn said...

@Swissbit:

Here's how:
http://ro-projectrevolution.blogspot.com/2010/08/cbt-contributors-contest.html

And Thank you! I look forward to your submissions.

@Hyde:
Yes Certain classes will now be able to duel wield weapons Such as Swordsman Types, and Thief Types.

Each Equip will have it's own model for the character, just like in RO2:GotW.

Yes monster spirits will offer a new equip, with it's new design.

Equips that are visible are currently headgears, clothes, accessories, and weapons.

Skills will vary from RO1, if they're from RO1 the team tried to re-imagine it for RO2 style.

[Chris Ruiz] Burn said...

@Struppi:

Sure thing - Just send me the URL of your Blog.

Struppi said...

@Chris:
Awesome. Thank you very much. We're still planning, but when its done I will send you the URL.
