Old Human Female Idle Animation

  • Had to look up on Youtube what the old animation was. Didn't remember it. If it was ever brought back, it'd be a nice "/bored" animation. GW1 throwback.

    This movement does not exist anywhere in the real world. I have never seen it. I have many sisters, female friends and relatives, daughter, wife and never once have any of them made this motion. Let alone every 5 seconds.

    How often do you see your female relatives cast a fireball spell?

  • A Reddit thread also had a comment about why they were removed.

    LOL That's rich. No they most definitely weren't removed for being sexist. They were removed because every time we went into a review of serious story content and you're supposed to be having really weighty conversations about Tyria-shaking, monumental decisions you and your team were making...oops, is this boring? Why am I yawning, and kicking the ground like I'd rather be ANYWHERE else? It happened so often that the only real way to address that feedback was to pull them out, because unfortunately our tools don't provide us designers with a way to throttle back only specific animations.

    Personally I didn’t like them for the reasons the dev stated. There would be an important issue being discussed and suddenly your char is doing a big stretch in someone’s face or is idly kicking the dirt. I didn’t care for them outside the story either but if they could bring them back and leave them out of story instances, that would be an acceptable compromise.

    Be careful what you ask for
    ANet might give it to you.

    Just search on youtube with the title and you will find one I am sure =)
    there is the stretching and the dirt kicking.

  • Seriusly its not comming back sorry but wont happend my problem is that they should removed equal amouth of animations on all races and genders so it would be fair

    Several posts on this thread with direct quotes from the devs.

  • Laila Lightness, I do hope that it comes back, and as for removing from other races I am against that, I don't want them to remove such things from other races, they should add more things =)

    I don't even remember this being changed xD

    Had to look up an old video to find it.. kinda silly really there's nothing wrong with the old or new ones.

    I like what some are saying though.. multiple animations and giving us a choice of which ones to use would be pretty great.

    There's nothing wrong with the animations...they should be reinstated immediately! Too many mentally ill snowflakes playing this game.

    Not one of the dev posts I read talked about mental health or snow for that matter.

    Is it ever gonna come back? =/
    Bring it back please!

    There have been several requests like yours in the past:
    https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/search?Search=Female+Idle+Animation

  • Those requests are a bit old though =(

    I'm glad this thread is still alive, I hope Anet reads the comments and makes idle animations optional. :D More customization options are nice.

  • Well ask yourselves this, all of you after 4 years, if a dev said it's a bug we will look it up, don't you think it would have been fixed by now?
    They lied to you plain and simple instead of telling you the real reason behind that decision. We'll look it up, loosely translated, means if you don't like the way we do things go play something else. Well guess what I'm playing something else until episode 5 comes along around January 18th after 4 months a new record, way to go Anet.
    Sorry for my rant guys but if I play another winter's day, I'll puke snow. Episode 5 for Christmas, it would have been a better way of saying Merry Christmas, but who am I kidding? Have fun all of you and Merry Christmas...going back to Assassin's Creed Origins. B)

    I love how everyone read past this qoute, im assuming thats from a dev?

    Yes, he’s not flashing an official tag but barefootmatthew is a Game/Narrative designer at Arenanet.
