As it was only a question at the time, I didn't title the thread what I likely should have - namely: "Bug! Cat companion NOT getting talent at level 4". While many players have responded in that thread saying they had the same bug, there's been nothing from KI indicating they even saw the thread, likely passed over in favor of threads that actually indicate a bug is present. I tried posting in "Pirate's Life" as a proper "This is a bug" thread, but the moderators nixed that post/thread, due to the existant thread, which still has no KI response. I feel that if there was a proper Bug Report forum, I could post this bug there and feel more reassured that it would get noticed and fixed.
Right now, I feel like my $89.00 bough me a bugged companion that might take forever to get fixed because they might not notice the thread anytime soon.
Just because beta is over doesn't mean there aren't still a LOT of us eager to help bugs get squashed through detailed reports on them.
Thank you VERY much Jack!!! I honestly thought nobody at KI had looked at the thread about the cat companion, due to there being zero responses from KI personnel. I am glad it's been noticed.
Also thank you for the info on how best to currently report a bug. I am an avid bug-reporter, and multiple beta-tester from several games. I do it to make the games better for everyone, and it's frustrating when I find bugs and there isn't an easy/efficient way to report them.
That said, if you'll excuse me, I have a bug to report!
**Also, you have the avatar of the single coolest character in the game, in my opinion. I would easily pay double--or more--what every other companion in the crown shop goes for, to purchase a One-Eyed Jack companion (or similar).
