Looking for thoughts on the Chain-Whip Sword, as a Charr Elementalist (weaver)?


Recommended Posts

I didn't know where else to stick this, sorry.

I've been eyeing the Chain-Whip Sword skin and waiting to see if it goes on sale but I'm still on the fence if I REALLY want to drop the gems for one. It looks cool (if a bit fast) but the youtube videos showing it off have mostly been of more normal-looking humanoid races, and I think Charr animations play out a little differently. At the very least, I can tell that their sword flurry animation doesn't utilize any overheard downward swings. Weavers also have an effect where all of their sword swings are caked with elemental effects and I was wondering if the more dynamic-looking Chain Whip Sword also has those graphics play out along the entire length of the blade? The closest I could find was a Mesmer swinging it and it looks like it does for them, but I also know that Weaver came out 2 years afterward so I don't know if the same holds true for them. It'd drive me bonkers if the special effects only play out like a typical sword and would appear desynched for this weapon in particular.

So uh, now that we've all got these Black Lion Vouchers from the event, does anyone have info for poor OP who's waited a year for an answer? Namely, does the Weaver/Elem sword elemental effects affect the full length of the chain whip sword when it's extended? I mean, that'd be pretty sweet, right?
