New year… old problem

So. Just about a year ago… someone posted a thread making mention that the unarmed greatcleave animation was borked… but only for certain races.

back then i responded to it, and even did some minor testing myself… i had an elvish rogue/monk at the time. no problem for me to test at least that one.

well, a year has passed. and the topic was brought up again, so i did a little more extensive testing… it’s totally still not fixed.

so how ’bout it? lets get this one fixed! 😀

  1. I think your post goes to show why it hasn’t been fixed. You hadn’t noticed in a year that it was still borked. Seems that it’s just not really important to most players.

    • i have 2 characters that this potentially effects. Pickt and Tienshi. both of them use weapons instead. when i DO use wraps on them, i just don’t use great cleave thru force of habit. i also wasn’t sure if maybe it had been fixed for some races, and not others. this vid clearly shows it has not been

    Hai Katz! A couple of comments:
    Great Cleave still does what its advertised to do, no matter the race. So, do you really care about the “animation”? or just the Awesomebardâ„¢ side effect it provides for monks?

    • actually, the borked animation REALLY slows down the attack chain. its hard to show it in a vid where i’m not actually hitting anything, but in actual use an unarmed greatcleave performed by one of the effected races completely stops its attack, does that stupid little jump-kick thing, and THEN the ‘cleave’ attack registers… almost AFTER the animation completes.

      there really is something wrong with it, and not just a funky animation. if it was *just* an animation, i wouldn’t care.

      • Actually most unarmed monks use this to their advantage. There is a way to cancel this “slow” borked animation with monk’s tactics. I would call it a very nice metagaming trick. This is the main reason so few people have been vocal about it. Only what like a couple of threads on the mother forums? yeah…now you know
