Um...Not sure how I feel about the name change, but ok.

Now, I didn't mind when they changed Haegie to Sylas, but what is wrong with Miul?

    Or Miul is just sound too koreish, but we are not in Korea. Anyway I don't think that anybody care to much about such trivial matters.

    I like Eira better, I agree that Miul is way too similar to Mule in English.

    Not like your character ign is going to be named Eira anyways lul. I agree they probably changed her name for pronunciation reasons.

    And replace too koreish with too Welshish....

    Sorry but EIRA is just reminds me of IRA. I feel like I have to invest now in my retirement savings :(

    Too bad; I thought Miul was actually kind of nice-sounding, but I guess since English tends to be heavy on the dipthongs especially when adopting foreign words (e.g. Tokyo = tow-kyow), I guess I could see how people might pronounce it like "mule".

    I figured the difference in name style (Korean-ish vs. Russian-ish) was due to their separation at early age, so it'll be interesting to see how they reflect this in her backstory.

    Well whatever, I just hope she's at least fun to play. I'd like to say it'd be cool to see her get a rifle or shotgun for slower staff Evie-like gameplay, but maybe that's too similar to Teide or Kai already. But since Teide is kinda like Devil May Cry, maybe Eira will just stick guns on her feet and go full Bayonetta breakdancing? It'd be a total ripoff but it'd be fun to see. I wouldn't mind seeing a new weapon style that's a little more acrobatic or martial arts-like. But... I guess that's really a long ways off.

    now I gotta make sure what hair and eye color my Arisha has so I can try to give the two similar traits.

    It is cool that they gave Arisha a sister. Arisha = Ruler of Time, Eira = Ruler of Space. Together, they control space and time. Would make sense why the bad guys are after them.

    Do you think we'll be seeing Miri's little brother anytime soon? He was mentioned in her backstory as Maru.

    Imagine if the character was named Eira in KR (probably Eila, or w/e) and the name got changed to Miul. Wouldn't you be like 'wtf!! why miul?'
    Purists always complaining about the most trivial matters.

    eira = if you read it from right to left it spells Arie / or/ sis is Arisha . So can they exist on the same plane or do they cancle each other out like antimatter and regular matter?

    Idk what you smoked but i want some.. :)

    On a sidenote if the name was changed due to its sound (hopefully not) i call it a bad decision and even worst choice the alternative.
    So just because 'faq' sounds like smt else or 'c0ckweather' recall another thing Miul vaguely sounds like mule should we change everything? I disagree.

    Miul was invented/created long ago with that name in mind and it sounds actually nice. Eira sounds like an old aged woman name..

    Also allysse real name (inn keeper from malina) is Eire already.

    Hm, shotgun sounds good, especially if developers will made few more models for it as a new secondary, and also add to it a real sniper mod. With serrated bleeding ammo for cruel end of miserable scumbags. Or just made it as separate custom-made heavy magic rifle with two barrels and two separate clips, and few types of ammo for mass extermination of overpowered vermins. Of course we also need bayonet for it, to crack a skulls and split a guts.
