About female movement animations

Greetings Exiles,

You may have noticed that after the 3.0 update, the walking/running animations for female characters with a weapon equipped are a bit… unusual. We are aware of this and we wanted to let you know that it’s gonna be fixed.

But we also wanted to let you in on a little secret and tell you why this was the case. The reason for this change is that the game never had combat running animations, and instead used the wide stance cautious walking animations for it, which naturally were sliding forward a lot to keep up with the running speed.

Both the cautious walk animations and the new running animations were shared by both genders, so no “feminine” animation got thrown out actually. They’re just the same thing now.

But yes, we got your feedback and we already introduced the new animations to our internal client. We can’t give you an exact date as to when these changes will arrive in the game but just so you know, we’re working on it.

As always, thank you for your feedback, and don’t hesitate to reach out if you got any other topics you want us to touch upon.
