Name: Har'Akir NPCs still refer to Har'Akir Native players as Foreigners

Where: Har'Akir

 What: Har'Akir NPCs still refer to Har'Akir Native players as Foreigners. This includes speaking with merchants in the market, the house of rest, inn keepers and also the watermongers shouting at you for being in the Oasis. It appears native Akiri are falgged as outlanders?

There are also dialogue lines where the commoners and children speak in untranslated Akiri, and the context implies that your character cannot understand what is being said; some are even amused by this silly foreigner's lack of comprehension ... even if you are also Akiri, or speak the language.

Not really a bug; conversations just haven't been updated for natives. Considering the amount of work required to add support for natives to conversations it's not a priority.

Seems like a very low impact issue. Especially considering that it affects a small subset of players (har akir natives only), and those players are probably skimming or skipping NPC dialogue after the first time that they read it.
