dace.8019 Posted March 27, 2022 Share Posted March 27, 2022 (edited) I think we could really improve the animations for some of the greatsword skills for Vindicator. 1. Mist Swing, Mist Slash, Arcing Mist. The AA chain is fine. Functional, but fine. 2. Mist Unleashed. Besides the visual on the ground, this one is weirdly underwhelming. It's just a horizontal swipe that is, or looks very identical to, one of the horizontal swings of the first two steps in the AA. Given how the effect on the terrain is depicted and how it appears, I feel like an vertical swing would be more appropriate - but really, almost anything is better than something lifted from the AA chain. It is more than a little too perfunctory and lacking in flair. But try this. Without hitting anything, just hold down 1. You'll swing that first AA a few times. Then, press 2. It's the same swing. 3. Phantom's Onslaught. I guess this fine, excepting that the transition from ghostly/ethereal back to normal at the end of the dash is abrupt - maybe just a little bit of mist-fizz coming off the character would sell this better, or a rapid but not instant transition effect from mist to not mist. But it's not as pressing as 2 or... 4. Imperial Guard / True Strike. Where we run into the same problem as 2. Once the block is completed, the follow up attack (True Strike) is seemingly the other of the first two auto-attacks. It's a bland, horizontal swipe. Fine in an AA, but just underselling what could be a big, fully charged up revenge smite. I also feel the little flash of mist powers that accompany it might be a bit bigger - perhaps scaling off the damage boost? 5. Eternity's Requiem. All good.
