I tested to see if the gear could be gotten for each fake burn and it can. I haven't tested the leveling yet though. I am worried about players getting banned if they use this. Guilds and Buddies are broken too as of right now. Storage won't work and cashshop is sperratic when it works. If pictures are needed I can provide

    Some players confirmed that leveling does work, and works above level 150, which means it definitely should not be abused.

    I'm going to sticky this thread; I'll repeat what I said on the Discord:
    Please avoid abusing the glitch because I cannot confirm anything about how this will be handled. My personal advice is that you avoid playing/leveling on these glitched characters and log a ticket immediately so that you have a reference to point to if/when something happens. Play it safe; that will help minimize the impact.

    If you've been affected by this glitch, let's use this thread to collect information. If you can post the names of characters affected and the date/time, please do so, so that if something does happens we can have a record of users affected by this glitch.

    Bug type: Gameplay

    Brief bug summary: I was playing on my level 135 Cadena and then I crashed. I logged back on and saw that my Cadena randomly turned into a burning character.

    More details: I made my Cadena when it was first released and before the burning character creation time period.

    Steps to reproduce: I don't know how to reproduce it but I basically was training on my level 135 Cadena and crashed. I logged in to see that it was a burning character and now I can't create an actual burning character later. I was saving my burning character for illium but now my old Cadena took it.

    Character name: Cadnelly

    Character level: 135

    Character job: Cadena

    World name: Reboot

    Date and time of the incident: About 7:00 PM Mountain Time.

    You wouldn't have been able to make Illium burning anyway because Cadena, Illium, and Zero aren't allowed to be burning. This bug is super annoying cuz I already made my phantom burning and got him to 152 then I made an evan and I can't level him till they fix this cuz he is also burning.

    Character Name: Rinkhal

    Character Level: 232.

    Character Job: Mercedes

    World Name: Bera

    Date and Time Of Incident: 5:00PM PST

    Extra: I tried to check if my Mercedes was really burning and got the boxes, did Vanishing Journey dailies and bosses, and logged out.

    Ideally.

    If you have a normally burned character it might be useful to mention that in a ticket or here, so as to put it on the record.

    alright cause only the pre created illium had the burning animation aside from my originally burned demon slayer, so there was no way I would be able to exploit that glitch. thanks.

    Brief Bug Summary: My main and alts were all burning. Not supposed to be.

    More Details: All characters were in "Burning" state upon signing on. No clue if it existed before logging. Tested to see if boxes could be acquired. They could, so guessed the burning was broken. Did VJ dailies and signed off.

    Steps To Reproduce: Maybe have a burning character and log out and back in? Not sure what produced it in the first place.

    Character Name: Zekebuster (ZekeEvan should be the only one burning, put my main since that's what I care about?)

    Character Level: 216 Buster; 121(?) Evan.

    Character Job: Angelic Buster; Evan

    World Name: Bera

    Date and Time Of Incident: Around 8:30ish EST I'd say. Was enough time to do my VJ dailies before 2x.

    Extra: Before I logged I got done getting like 17 levels from Zak last 2x. Also had a pre-created Illium. Pretty much the only outliers from the norm I can think of. = / (Edit: Also got done spam logging out to change c haracters for Dojo runs on them all)

    Brief Bug Summary: All characters were all burning in the selection screen. Not supposed to be.

    More Details: Just one character was supposed to be on burning mode. I decided to check if the burning was having effect on all characters. I leveled up the 190 character and it just leveled up once. In this case it was just a visual effect bug, nothing more.

    Steps To Reproduce: I tried to log out and log back in. The visual effect bug was still there.

    Character Name used to test bug: TsoujiroZ (HajimeBuff should be the only one burning)

    Character Level: 191 Blaster; 70 cannoneer.

    Brief Bug Summary: I can create another burning character and original burning didn't level up three times.

    More Details: I logged in today and saw that I could create another burning character. I just ignored it and started training on my Evan, which is my current burning character. It leveled from 139 to 140 which should be 142.

    Steps To Reproduce: Logged in and out but could still create another burning and my Evan is still 140.

    Brief Bug Summary: I can create another burning character, but the original burning character isn't burning anymore

    More Details: I logged in today and saw that I could create another burning character. but my Aran (original burning), that is in level 130, doesn't have the burning effect anymore.

    Steps To Reproduce: Logged in and out but could still create another burning and my Aran is still 140.

    Character Name: RangedGuy

    Character Level: 130

    Character Job: Aran

    World Name: Scania

    Date and Time Of Incident: 08:40 AM PST

    Disclaimer: I don't really think this is a bug, but rather the solution Nexon came up to solve the multiple burning characters problem. Still, I have a life (don't mean to be rude), so I don't want to create another burning character, I want to use the burning in my originally burned character to level it up faster as intended initially

    it probably wont be able to burn since it has to be a newly created character.
