Banner Toggle Options

    Hey all,

    Since Warriors are receiving banner abilities, there should be a toggle option to allow visual banners to be seen in-game on the back of our characters. IMO, I do not want to be throwing down a banner that I seemingly pull out of my...erm...the air. Rangers should be having the same concern with arrows and quivers. I realize not all players would want this aesthetic, however, I believe it now to be essential in the class immersion.

    Plain and simple; add a toggle option.

     

    Thanks and tell me what you think!

    I'd have prefered the banners of the warrior to appear on his back when activated, like a champion of some sort, rather than dropping them somewhere. Just my personnal taste.

    Something like this, with of course, european-medieval genre.

    Yes, that is a great idea too. Maybe even make them permanent but they change symbol/color once switched (i.e. going from Banner of Arms to Onslaught) in combat. What about racial banners? An Ogre Warrior with a tribal banner and human with a medieval look?

    Both ideas are great, I fear they aren't what they have in mind however :(.

    I like both planting or wearing, and also toggling either. Could be usefull as markers or when placed or over a person to follow in a raid. Would be fun to have multipe warriors with different banners. Most likely it will be a spell effect or almost nothing at all like an emote.

    I wonder if there will be a range indicator so people know to stand in range of the banner.. I kinda hope not; they're unsightly. 

    Hopefully if you're in range you just get a buff on your buff bar and if you don't have it you know to move closer to the banner. 

    Also I love the idea of having it on your back instead of planting it and it being an actual visual item you can see maybe there could be a cosmetic item quest to change the banner.

    Would be cool to see them carried on the back but it looks like they are planting them.

     

    I hope there is a range indicator but something adjustable so it can be made very transparent to where it's almost not there.

    I would be happy with a translucent spell effect banner that shows when it is engage.

     

    When playing in 3rd person banners, trees, or oversized pet make it difficult to watch adds.

    Yes, I'm thinking the UI for the stances will be similar as well; simply hoping VR lets us apply it more realistically in-game.
