Parallels To Bloody Queen

I've noticed that this path seems to parallel Bloody Queen to an extent. Both this path and Bloody Queen have a Tenacity-tier skill that grants a Sword Aura buff and a passive that grants additional effects to their Way of the Sword and Chivalry auras respectively, and they both lose their old sense of self due to El-like Powers, but they differ in that this path uses the regular El and becomes its guardian knight while Bloody Queen uses the Dark El and becomes a demon-slaughtering maniac, as well as the extra benefits of their auras being different.

Question About Awakening

So does this path change the name of his Awakening to El Resonance, like how Lofty: Wanderer changes the name of his Spiritualism to Henir? And if so, at what point does it actually change? Is it as soon as he becomes Root Knight, or does it happen later on? FlareKyn (talk) 10:04, 19 July 2021 (CEST)

  • As soon as he reaches Root Knight. The game still uses "When awakened" on other skills or passives so it's less consistent at it as Henir (Awakening) on Herrscher, but it names it "El Resonance" explicitly on the 3 passives that add the El Resonance skills for each tier. A better way to see it is that Genesis's El Resonance is an add-on on top of Awakening (similar to True Form for Mad Paradox), whereas Henir directly replaces Spiritualism. --ED Senne (talk) 11:48, 19 July 2021 (CEST)
    • Sorry, I probably should have been more specific, but I was asking if the actual Awakening Mode, AKA the buff that appears in your buff icons, gets renamed in this path. The reason I asked is because nearly every reference to it on the Sacred Templar and Genesis pages says "El Resonance (Awakening)" instead of just "Awakening", so I thought maybe Awakening got renamed like how Ain's Spiritualism (AKA his version of Awakening) is renamed to "Henir" after advancing to Lofty: Wanderer.

      • Oh, I actually didn't know Herrscher renamed the buff itself (let alone that Ain as a whole did), thought that just said "Awakening" still. In that case, no, the buff is still just Awakening I believe. --ED Senne (talk) 12:28, 19 July 2021 (CEST)
        • Okay, yeah, just confirmed it for myself in NA. In that case, I don't think we should be calling it El Resonance. Yes, it's required for the El's Resonance skills, but it itself isn't El Resonance, just Awakening. FlareKyn (talk) 03:22, 7 August 2021 (CEST)

Should Genesis' name (Elsword) be ??? instead

Due to the lore on job quests, it is revealed that Genesis has forgotten his own name. I know that characters attributes are based on the creation screen but I was wondering if lore has any part of it as well since the last lines of genesis' job quest is "??? goes to give his answer"

Even if he lost his memory, he is still Elsword.
