    I've seen bard emotes (musical notes) on my dirge and troub. Don't pay much attention to them. Maybe check your graphical settings.

    It would be immensely cool to make them available for House Actors, like we have the Crafting "emotes" already... :)

    I think you're just thinking of particle effects.

    What I'm hoping Toby is working on giving us is a constant looping playing of instruments. Hopefully Drum, Lute, and Flute three different emotes. <3

    The floating musical notes? Yeah, I'm impressed with folks that can ignore them; I'd love to be able to toggle them on and off. ;->

    As for the physical, instrument-playing emotes, I'm with Oakmiser on that one. :)

    Maybe for me at least, I could care less about "emotes" of playing a lute or any other musical instrument during combat. And if I'm not in combat, I really don't see the point.

    Oakmiser might've been referring to House Actors?

    And once combat starts, all other /emotes are pretty much out the window, so I think you're safe there. ;->

    Particle effects (little musical notes drifting around) are already in the game and functioning. Again, check your particle settings if you're not seeing them.

    Yep, we only get to do that when we're casting something, usually an Until Cancelled thing. :-/

    I, too, would like to be able to play instruments, either as my Bards and/or with House Actors. :)

    We wouldnt even have to have the particle effect necessarily . . just the emote of standing there playing an air guitar or drumming or flute! For EVERYONE including ACTORS. I have houses that I have some bands in and guess what they are doing? HARVESTING. ???? Why? Cause they cant play an instrument.

    It's on my list to check into. It won't be anytime soon, I'm knee deep in expansion monsters right now.
  18. Quiarrah Well-Known Member

    *le sigh* Well Thank you. At least its on the list somewhere.
  19. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    Oh, that's such a visual... :D

    I really wish I was an artist; I can see it now...a Ratonga, furiously scribbling away at one of the in-game "writing desks"/drafting boards, with monsters of various sizes, mostly meeping away for his attention ("Draw ME!!" "No, me! :D" "I still need to be animated!" "Waahhh!" [big guy in the back, looming over the li'l ratty; deep voice:] "I better be da next one, boss..."), and a long To-Do List scroll nearly reaching the floor... :D

    who'd also really love to have true Bard emotes for Actors :)

    Sounds like the makings of a house to me!
