First NPC, this dialogue is very awkward and foreign-sounding. Should probably read something like "A Swordsman who learns to surpass the limits of the sword can become a Rune Knight." or something along those lines.
The first of many quest log entries. As a whole they need to be reworked by someone who is fluent in english, and some changes could be made to make them a little more informative. This one should read something like "The Rune Knight Manuel has recommended that you become a Rune Knight as well. He suggests you should meet with the Rune Knights in Glast Heim if you would like to learn more." You could also put something about how the NPC you are looking for is in the top left of the map to help direct players a little bit.
Next NPCs dialogue could use a little work as well, though for the most part it wasn't too bad. This should probably read something like "Are you a cursed ghost of this place? Or just an ignorant adventurer?" Dropping the word 'cursed' altogether would also help smooth the flow of the dialogue.
For this one, I would recommend removing the word 'blood' from 'blood group,' as it just seems to make the sentence feel awkward. In addition, the last sentence should be changed to something like "Now I shall give you your first assignment." You might want to consider replacing the word 'assignment' with 'test' as well, as it seems to fit the context better.
Another quest log entry. This should read something like "The secret entrance to the Glast Heim Tower is inside the Glast Heim Chivalry. A staff member is waiting for you at the secret entrance." It could also help to specify that its on the second level of Chivalry, but that depends on how much direction you want to give the player.
Another quest log entry. For the record, the instructors names are Tigris, Lunarea, Renoa, and Velpino. There names are consistently butchered throughout the quest log entries. This one should read "The captain of the Rune Knights, Tigris, has told you to speak to Lunarea about the first test."
This dialogue from Tigris should read something like "Now the test begins. Your first test is from that beautiful, icy lady, so try your best!" There is a redundant amount of 1sts and firsts in the dialogue which make it sound silly.
Another quest log entry, received right after you begin the test Lunarea gives you. Should read something like "Rune Knight Lunarea has told you to go to the Examination room and kill all the enemies you see."
Quest log entry. Should read "Rune Knight Lunarea recognizes your success on the first test. Return to Tigris to learn of your next test."
Quest log. Should read "Captain Tigris has directed you to speak with Rune Knight Renoa to learn of the second test."
Another quest log entry. This one gives you the wrong names for the books. It also doesn't realize that Renoa and Lunarea are two different people. It should read "Rune Knight Renoa has asked you to make preparations for the next test. Read the books 'Runes and Rune Knights,' 'The Principles of Runes,' and 'Usage and Making of Runes.'" As another note, the third book is named 'Rune, Make & Use' which is a little awkward. As you can see in my suggestion for the quest log entry, it should probably be changed to something like 'Usage and Making of Runes.'
First book, first option spelling error. Should read 'harmonize,' not 'harmoze.'
First Book, second option has strange wording here. Should be something like "A Rune is a jewel that contains formless magical power that can be used directly."
First book second option. Just a bit of awkward wording, the end should be something like "...their research has only recently became known to the world."
First book, second option spelling error. Should be "transferring," not "transvering."
Second book, first option. Awkward wording mostly, and a bit of a run on sentence. Should be something like "Almost no documentation remains that directly mentions the system and meaning of the runes. However, Runes have been studied by the sages of Geffen, Juno, and Arunafeltz to this day."
Second book, first option. Not 100% sure what they are trying to express here, but my take on it is it should be changed to something like "Runes are a symbol-based system. Stories passed down orally claim that Runes can also be used in fortune-telling and to draw out the human subconscious."
Second book, Second option. Awkward wording with some small spelling things. Should be something like "Runes are created from a total of 25 small stones, which are very fragile and must be handled with extreme care."
Second book, Second option. Super run-on sentence. I suggest it be changed to something like "The 25 stones each have unique meanings. Among these, 14 of them have their power and meanings changed dramatically by inverting them. It is essential to study these exceptions."
Continued in next post.

Awkward wording, should read something like "This world, that you call 'Ash Vacuum'...it's the magical power made within Alfheim." I don't have the full exact script here with me, so might need some more changes to fit with the context better. I assume she's mentioned something relevant to the magical power, but if not it will need further revision.
Quest log entry. Again with awkward wording, should be something like "Serpeone has cast a spell on you to allow you to accumulate the magical energy of certain monsters in your body, in order to assist you in the Rune Creation process. Accumulate an appropriate amount of energy by hunting the designated monsters."
Quest log entry. Strange wording, and the objective is worded strangely as well. Should be something like "Accumulate magical energy by hunting 10 of the designated monster." Objective should read "Kill 10 Dullahan's."
Quest log entry. Same deal. Same change as above except for the objective, which should be "Kill 10 Disguises."
"Kill 10 Quve's"
"Kill 10 Hylozoists"
Awkward wording, and its making the great Serpeone sound a little nervous. Should be "Well done. You have accumulated a good amount of magical energy within your body."
Quest log entry. Awkward wording and some spelling errors/inconsistencies. Should read something like "Create 20 Rune Stones using the Rune Furnace in the statue behind Renoa. You will need to know the information in the book 'The Making and Usage of Runes' to continue."
I'll diverge from spamming screenshots for a short bit to talk about my experience with the Rune Furnace. All in all, while its a pain to go through the book and record every single rune possible, its pretty well put together. There are a number of inconsistencies between the machine and the book however.
Firstly, the book repeatedly refers to 'oblique lines,' whereas the furnace shows you 'slanted lines.' One of these should be changed for the sake of consistency.
Secondly, the book and the Furnace both refer to a shape called a 'round.' This should probably be changed to a 'circle' as then it would actually make sense.
Thirdly, a number of the runes that show up in the Rune Furnace have different descriptions then ones shown in the book. The ones I noticed were different were:
Isia - Says its a violet spiral in the book, but is actually a violet slanted line.
Urj - Says its a violet oblique line in the book, but is actually a violet spiral.
Algiz - Says its a emerald oblique line in the book, but is actually an Emerald Spiral.
Turisus and Jera - Both are described as a 'yellow round' in the book, and this description is correct in the Furnace. However, there is no way to differentiate between whether you get a Jera or a Turisus, so I suggest one of them is changed to something else.
Ehwaz - There are two seperate descriptions in the book for Ehwaz. When those descriptions come up in the machine, Ehwaz is an appropriate answer for both of them. Mechanically its fine, but its a little confusing to have two runes with the same name.
Those were the major issues I saw with the Rune Furnace. The list of the ones I saw that worked properly are:
-Jera (iffy, see above)
Alright, enough with the rune furnace, on to the rest of the test.
Quest log entry. Weird wording and the incorrect name. Should read "You passed the test. Return to Captain Tigris and await his instructions."
Quest log entry. Should read "Speak to the dark-looking Rune Knight Velpino to begin the third test.
Quest Log Entry. Typo. The word 'would' only has one 'w' in it
Quest Log Entry. Some weird wording and spelling/grammar errors. Should read "Velpino has instructed you to kill the 3 monsters in the Examination room using only the Rune stones provided to you."
Quest log entry. Should read "You successfully defeated the 3 monsters and passed the final test. Return to Velpino."
Quest log entry. Should be "You have finally completed the test to become a Rune Knight. Speak to Captain Tigris to change your job."
Item wording for the Rune Circlet is a little weird. Should be changed to mention 'base strength' instead of 'pure strength'
And thats pretty much all I have to say on the RK Job change. I personally didn't run into any game-breaking bugs when I ran through it, though it sounds like waiting rooms are being an issue for people. Unfortunately I wont be able to look into that as I've already finished the test. Hope this helps!
