    would this be possible?

    Jens has stated that whip and similar styles would be difficult given the physX and making the weapon have a form, animations, etc. just isn't gonna happen, not for a awhile or ever.

    would fall into the whip category, and ya extremely hard to make it look proper and would take a big amount of resources to make it look right. One of the reasons i dont use a cape as the animations on them are a large graphics drain.

    Whips need to happen. SoE need to stop taking the easy route and actually do something people want.


    Inner T4 V's whips as a weapon set.

    Players - Whips!
    SoE - Inner! It's easier.

    The ps3 can't do it without everything else taking a hit. The devs have to think about the lowest common denominator and largest income.

    It has nothing to do with "easy/hard" Its about making the game run smoothly, dynamic movements cause incredible memory strain, capes and reflections(water especially) are two of the largest culprits. For them to add whips and make them look presentable would just add to graphics and lag issues.

    You can go HL and use WhipThrash.

    I wish we could at least get chains for a dual-wield secondary style (So that when I do my spinning combo, it looks like Lobo's move.)
    (For that matter, you could do a full dual wield style where most moves are the hooks and just the ones where the chains are straight/non-whippy are chains.) It would such an amazing fit for my main toon...
