Game crashes when attempting to inherit attribute to shield

When I try to inherit a new attribute to my shield the screen goes black and I am unable to continue with anything. I’ve closed the game completely, same issue. Turn off and restarted my phone, relaunched the game, same issue. Ran the repair client, same issue. When I select the item to repair it, the item name and description is a bunch of “@“ symbols. What else can I do?

Unrelated, but why does the game take 3-5 minutes to start up?
