    Has anyone seen or does anyone know if a Granok can have a cigar in game as a customistaion/gear option?

    Im planning on playing Granok on my main and he would look so cool if he can charge around chomping on his cigar.
    Considering all of the PR stuff shows the Granok Merc with a cigar it makes sense you should be able to have one in game.

    I get a very bad feeling though that there will be some bollox rule about age ratings and not promoting smoking or somthing like that which will mean it wont/cant happen.

    Any thoughts?

    I just had a pretty awesome thought that they could do with head armor models, one of the head armors could just be a cigar that would be an awesome way to do it.

    I wouldn't worry about age restrictions.... hell, starcraft showed marines smoking!

    If it's one thing I've learned in the short time here, it's that the devs like cool stuff ( like hoverboards).

    If they can find a way to get cigars in the game, I bet they will.

    It would be neat if a Cigar was a headgear item. Like say, you have three spots for 'jewelry' on the head. Like earrings, piercing, necklace. The cigar takes up a necklace slot. In this way, it's just a piece of gear like any thing else and any character can find and equip it.

    Smokables should be consumables to give you a passive 30 min buff.

    Tobacco and other magic herbs.

    They do seem to always have a cigar in the art sketches. Maybe it's a weird growth they have.

    I can see this being some sort of vanity item, which would be cool. That said, I can't imagine seeing any Granok's who wouldn't be using a cigar. Which, when it comes down to it, should be viewed as a serious health concern by any Exile doctors.

    Exile doctors are like doctor's of the old west. Whiskey and a chainsaw. If the old west had chainsaws.

    Do Granok's even have lungs - or fleshy respiratory bits?

    It's been said they "have more boulders than brains" ... could that be more than just a genitals-joke made in passing?

    They have shown that Granok's eyes, tongue and teeth look very human-like. Eyes and tongue look wet and soft, teeth look shiny and enameled.

    Which leads me to wonder if Granok skin isn't just supremely calcified flesh and everything inside is squishy.

    Crunchy on the outside, squishy on the inside. What would you do for a Granok bar?

    It would be cool if we could have headgear that looks like cigars, sunglasses, pipes, lollipop sticks and so on. xD

    ha while I personally do not approve of smoking, For some reason it just seems proper for a Granok to be holding a minigun like Jessie Ventura in predator and smoking a big damn cigar while mowing down enemies in a hail of lead/lasers/plasma. One liners while doing so are an added bonus.

    Would it also give everyone around you a Second-Hand Smoke debuff?

    Well, if everyone has a cigar, then no one has a cigar. I'll be content with a smokeless Granok, I think. That lichen on his shoulder is a nicotine patch.

    Cigars could work as an accessory, maybe. It'd be nice if it was included in the game.
