It has been awhile that the emote, /talk and requested fix is in conversation. Honestly, I don’t really notice this type of detail in an MMORPG like Guild Wars 2 but if I do, I don’t really mind them not being perfect. After all, it is hard for developers to actually make animation. What more on making super fine actions and facial expressions, right? Don’t get me wrong though, it is cool for me that people who have little tolerance to this because they have high attention to detail. I also think this is a Guild Wars 2 gold type of discussion.
Guild Wars 2 Gold: New Version
There was this nice dude to keep us updated on the new /talk emote in the game and even made or linked comparisons on how it looks now. Here is the post by Charrikayu in Reddit:
I’ve been begging for new emotes for a long time now, and I’m so happy they’ve finally arrived. I love them all with one exception: /talk, at least on Charr, uses a different animation that what’s already been in the game since launch.
Here’s the player: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bJbOU2nh14

I don’t hate the /talk we have now, but I find it odd that we had a really nice, already animated /talk that’s for more expressive, while the one we got seems to have been crafted anew, and also is much more slouched and simple.
I’m not sure if this goes for other races as well, it’s possible NPCs of humans, asura, etc all have their own /talks that are different from players as well.
Any chance we could upgrade to the nicer /talk, or get like a /argue or something instead in order to make it available? It’s my favorite ’emote’ in the game.
For me, honestly, I don’t really mind on how they look right now. There are limitations to game engine as well though I am not sure if this is one of the case. I would buy Guild Wars 2 gold for the guy who can confirm this. LOL jk. Seriously though, game devs can spend more time on something else rather than this one. How about you, what do you think? Let us know!
