    That's not describing why, that's describing how. You can do drunken boxing sober, is the point here, it's in the way you move, not the why you move.

    The point of the drunken style is, as has been said, to emulate the actual drunken martial art form, which has less to do with drinking and more to do with moving unpredictably with off-kilter timing. Because it makes you look drunk, yes, it's called "drunken" - and honestly, my own lack of creativity led to me going "okay, a few of these styles can just be actually drunk".

    I don't foresee us changing the Praenomen one, since a lot of players are pretty happy with it.

    :/ This is why we need the ability to look at it before we get it. I wouldn't have elected to get this one at all if I'd known it was different in this way from all the other drunken styles I've seen.

    @Damariel Is there a chance of making this one a bit more Bloodborn-ish. Perhaps include the use of our wisp or dispersing in a haze of blood and reforming to reappear behind our target ?
    Bloodborn (frenzy)
    1P: In a flash of supernatural speed, you find yourself beside Varian, striking Him with a powerful series of blows.

    Here's another thought.... perhaps you can release a news post that says, "Here are all the styles for the respective classes. Has fun!!!"

    What, and deny our players the fun of cataloguing them? They've been having quite a lot of fun with that and I'm not one to rob them of that joy.

    I will be making a final round of changes in the next few days; I've been gone and I'm trying to clear through a backlog of other stuff. Rest assured Carnifex style messages are top priority.

    Carnifex polearm messages have been altered where they were found to unambiguously describe stabbing or jabbing.

    With that, the open period on requesting style changes has ended.

    @Razmael @oleis I purchased credits in order to obtain this scroll. It is meant to be a rare one for those who did the promotion, yet it does not work as it is meant to work with a weapon as show:
    1P: You send your wisp to spread across Varian's vision, eliciting a blood-curdling scream just before you slice into Him with (weapon). 3p: Riluo sends his wisp to spread across Varian's vision, eliciting a blood-curdling scream just before he slices into Him with (weapon).
    However when used it does not show the weapon, instead it merely shows the word (weapon) Please can this be corrected to work with the scythe as intended, as it refuses to note weapon type when I use my hunting scythe skill, which is now the primary attack we all use. We do not use frenzy anymore its our newbie attack now! Yet it forces us to use frenzy and we get the message show above word for word!!

    PLEASE and Thank you

    This was something @Oleis seemed favorable for a bit ago, but I'm guessing it got forgotten or sidelined for more important stuff, so just a reminder - with the Carnifex revamp, our hunting attack went from polearm to hammer. Is there any chance invested Carni style scrolls could be reset, as they are basically wasted now.

    @Obyn done and done, thank you for the quick reply.

    @Moirean Agree, I have tons of styles that are all linked to frenzy a hunting skill none of us use since scythes became our hunting skill in the Bloodborn. So in theory we are now left with all these useless scrolls we invested in. Which sucks hugely.

    @Riluo I spoke with @Razmael today about shifting bloodborn styles over to scythe, and it should happen sometime in the near future. At this point I'm waiting on the code to be changed so I can plug all of the rewritten messages in. As for carnifex styles, I'm not certain what can or will be done about those.
