No, they have yet to give us any kind of time range as to when we can expect the awakenings to get released.
All we know for now is that they would prefer to release as many, if not all, of the awakenings at once to avoid us getting some heavy class imbalances. 

So if we were to assume that they'll wait with releasing them in the west until all of them is finished, that it takes ~1 month between the awakening releases in KR, and that there is a total of 4 awakenings currently missing (Ninja, kunoichi, witch and wizard) I'd say it's safe to assume that we wont be seeing them for a minimum of 4 months

The correct answer, straight from the CMs, is August is the earliest we will see them. That is incredibly dissapointing, and frankly I don't see the player base sustaining months of Valencia without them. Anything that isn't a Ranger or Witch/Wiz will likely quit within the first few weeks of Valencia after they get pushed out by Rangers on +18 gear. Nothing pre-awakenings can compete with that.

The whole situation is in discussion, but it will take time to decide exactly if we decide to change our plan and how. Now what has been confirmed is that no matter what, it won't be coming before August, as we're planning to release Valencia 1 and 2 first + the Ninja/Kunoichi.

Even if we decided to follow a staggered release it would mean all the awakening except Wizard/Witch and Ninja/Kunoichi as theirs wil be ready far too late in the year.

There won't be any announcement or decision made soon as we already have the release plan for the next 2 months.

So they add awakening nerfs to the current version, and then decide to not add any awakenings for at least half a year. All the while they won't do anything to make up for the awakening nerfs in between now and then. These guys should write a book on how to kill a good game in less than a year because it would be quite the story.

Thanks for the replies, so its safe to say they probably won't be coming out till late this year or early next year? Guess I can put my warrior to rest for a while, how are the bladers without awakenings? Or is it basically rangers/wiz. xD

I enjoy warrior but its kinda hard to enjoy it at endgame, when you field bosses are anti-melee, pvp you have to try like 10x harder just to be on par. xD

NO, we wont get awakenings soon, we might get awakenings after ALL the classes have awakenings in KR version. : 

To shed some light about the situation and the spam around it. Few weeks ago we said that we wanted to release all the awakenings all at once. That is still our plans so far. There are no silence around this, mostly maybe a "let's not repeat ourselves everytime someone new ask for it". 

Now, this is mostly due to the fact that releasing only a part of it might create some unbalance in the actual PvP system. Your concerns are based on the PvE yes, but that doesn't mean PvP will not be impacted by it. 

On top of that there are 2 things to notice, first not all classes have their awakening skill ready to be released, this is not a matter of "this new class has an issue let's try to fix it", it can only be solved by waiting, would it be ok for them to wait ? Would it be if we were playing a class without awakening when everybody has its own ? 

Second point is that, as you saw in many patch notes, we keep changing monsters/boss stats in our version of the game, meaning our client is different than the KR one and that also we're trying to adapt the game. 

There is actually no reason to be afraid of something that isn't garanty to happen. Awakening won't be coming soon no, and it doesn't mean that you will not be able to grind properly in Valencia. 

Edit: And the lock happened mostly because it turned into an "ok but repetitive post to just spamming for attention". If you want an answer, better tag and wait for us to read the whole thing, if there is spam, we'll lock then read after.

Then get rid of the Awakenings CC nerf. Really, I have no idea what kind of decision that was.

"Now, this is mostly due to the fact that releasing only a part of it might create some unbalance in the actual PvP system. Your concerns are based on the PvE yes, but that doesn't mean PvP will not be impacted by it". - This right here made me more or less quit the game. It truly shows that they are not playing the game or testing it! I do not think this game can be more unbalanced than it is right now due to none-awakening CC nerf, so that is just an excuse!

"There is actually no reason to be afraid of something that isn't garanty to happen. Awakening won't be coming soon no, and it doesn't mean that you will not be able to grind properly in Valencia". - Unless they come out with a none-awakening balance fix for most melee classes, then there is nothing else they can do here. They could decrease all the health on the mobs in Valencia, but that won't help the big balance part between range and melee classes.

And as Wrekks said. If they want us to wait for the awakening remove the Awakening CC nerf etc. I am more than fine by that, but not with the none-awakening nerf. that makes all melee classes more or less useless.

They are probably too busy playing Overwatch to care about fixing their mistakes, or even acknowledging that there is a problem.

Here's a Valk with 359 DP. More than you will ever realistically have in PVP or PVE. It takes a geared ranger 4 seconds to kill him. No awakenings will be the actual death of this game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIhb7VwuIKI
