Decided to write this in an effort to gather more information on a subject near and dear to my heart. Race Attack Animations! We're all aware that races have their own unique dance animations in most MMO's. One of the reasons I fell in love with WoW early on was because the attack animations for each race had some flavor to them! Exampled below: and I always loved how Blood Elves had basically the same jumping special two handed sword attack as Night Elves, only with that added extra swing behind their backs. It gave them a familiarity and distinction all at the same time. I've read in various places in these forums that Carbine chose the single weapon per class route to cut down on the workload for the animators. Makes perfect sense to me, and I'm already pleased with everything I've been lucky enough to see. What I'm wondering and hoping to learn more about is if these animations will be along racial lines in a similar vein to what WoW had. I've already noticed the cool samurai-esque way in which a Mechari warrior holds his sword: It's different from the still upright, but less vertically straight angle the Granok use: I LOVE these types of differences! They really help set each race apart and make playing them feel more unique. However, every video I've scoured through watching gameplay depicts the same three swing auto attack-like animation sequence for warriors, regardless of race. (Slash/Slash/Jumping Spin Slash) It's the same for spellslingers with their 3 hit combo. (Doubleshot/Doubleshot/Spin around Doubleshot) Is this a placeholder animation for now? Or not the kind of attack the animators are focusing on? Will animations be different not only with races but with sexes within each race also? Can someone point me to an official quote that addresses any of this? In the end I'll admit that i'm grasping for more information on a game I already love while waiting for any tiny tidbit to make me even more excited to play it. Back to working on some more fanart.
