    This post by Scooter piqued my interest, he was referring to the flag planting ability that turns the character to a glowing Gold-like color.
    Do you guys think this might be a possible hint at transformations?

    I don't understand how you got to that result from that quoted post?

    Well, the flag planting ability always looked like a light transformation to me, but it was used for healing, so when Scooter said they are using this animation for something else, transformations were the first thing to come to me.

    I did not think transformation when I read that.
    I just though the changed the animations and maybe the mechanics of the healing from what we say in the video.

    All I meant was that the flag animation is used for a different ability now. Nothing crazy, it still heals things :D

    I think Shady is referring to the "Golden Armor Buff" which is a different skill altogether.

    Okay, thanks for responding.

    I just didn't know how you got to the point of transformations from the flag planting animation. But then i guess you got it confused with the cool armor animation or something. :3

    Reviving this because it's here and I don't think it's that old or warrants a new topic.

    What exactly is that "Golden Armor Buff"? I'm seeing only the same picture of an Esper using it, and I saw a diffrent Esper use it in a video recently, but my cousin and I both believe we saw a Granok use it in another video. We can't remember the video but obviously Granok cannot be Espers. Is this sure fire and Esper ability, or could it perhaps be an explorer path ability where you don some ancient eldan armor?

    Not anymore! C:<

    But really the topic was here and I'm interested in it, it's not THAT big of a necro, and also it's been 5 months not 3.

    Can anyone actually help answer my question, though?

    I am 99% sure that it is an Esper 'buff' ability that can be used on self, as well as party members. My guess would be that the ability has a shorter duration with a higher defensive buff for 'oh <REDACTED> moments'. That's just my guess though.

    It's indeed a Esper ability. Mayby the Grannok was another class with another ability that can look a bit like it. Or they were still experimenting with it comparing it to larger sizes character or mayby something else. You never know with Carbine.

    The ability gives you that golden armor and <REDACTED> (sorry can't say anything because it's under NDA :p)

    But atm it's Esper only :up: And i'm 99.9% sure that it will remain Esper only.

    But if you look at the leaked patchnotes:
    And that Frenzy seems like another buff :D

    But the Phantasmal Armor gives you atleast 2 interupt armor stacks (and more but that's under NDA).

    When I make my little esper, everyone will be gold and shiny!

    Though I have to admit that I always liked the way esper animations have looked ever since the very first videos. I do remember the one that had a big hand that came down and squashed things, but I think that animation was changed.

    I never liked their animations ^^ Reason being that I am very into theming and etc and the espers have a lot of multicolored and just weird abilities. I like my character to follow a scheme, Warriors and Stalkers do it well of the classes released. Spellslinger is just as bad as esper but spellslinger has cool parts that I like about it (Like teleporting and stuff). I really can't stand most of the things espers do though lol, like most magey classes in games I suppose.

    It's okay. I'll be the esper and make you shiny and heal you. You can be the spellslinger and teleport us everywhere. :D

    I guess the main reason I like many of the animations is because they are so off the wall, weird, and different.

    Haha no, I shall be the Human or Wayward Warrior :p The animations are great and cetered around orange-gold, my favorite color. ^^

    Yeah, I can see the appeal but I'm really OCD about these things lol.
