5th Job Stones Bug

Recently started 5th job advancement quest on Mercedes. Was going fine until I reached the part where you need to fill up the three stones with EXP. First off, everywhere online said to just wait for 2 hours per stone to complete the quest, but after about 4 on the maple world stone, nothing happened. Idk if that was changed or something though,, so whatever. The more pressing issue is that whenever I click on the other two stones, only text boxes with gibberish and strange characters pop up. I also forfeited the quest and restarted, but the Tynerum and Grandis stones still only show the same bugged text boxes. The Maple stone, on the other hand, gives me the same dialogue from before I forfeited, "'I'm recording your power on the Arcane Stone' (The arcane stone is being activated)".. Also the box showing how much EXP was being charged in the currently active stone will no longer appear. I don't know how much of this is a bug, but the Tynerum and Grandis text boxes definitely are. Here's a link to an image of the bugged text- https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iPG61t2Iq49TAC84RPDpwfk4OTyvVx48/view?usp=sharing

    They changed it so you must gather 500m exp for each stone now.

    They've changed what you need to do to be able to unlock 5th job. Listed here on the official patch notes (search for "5th Job Advancement Conditions"). Pain in the butt to search for these things and I don't blame you but it's different now. You need to get 500m exp on each of the stones and I don't think you can wait them out anymore. You also need 100 Star Force with 10 Stars on the weapon (but you're past this point so whatever).

    As for the text problem, I did my 5th job advancement on my Night Walker yesterday so it works fine for me at least. I recommend changing your System Locale to English. Try: Control Panel -> Region -> Administrative -> "Change system locale...".

    I hope this helps.

    The matter of garbled (untranslated) message has been forwarded to Nexon. What the message is saying is that you can't activate another stone while one is still recording experience.

    As for the rest of your report - as the posters above said, this is a recent change, but yes, you must fill the stones, one by one, however long it takes.
