It would be very cool to be a Wraithe that had the ability to switch between sword and bow
I'm trying a Wraith at the moment, but unfortunately he'll won't be able to fly over things. No Dungeon Siege monster can (it's just an illusion). Will DS 2 allow this?
What if players wanted to use them for something else? You may end up having to make armor for every different creature and new animations.
That is unfortunately what you would need to do. All monsters can use weapons & shields but often don't have the animations to use them properly and not look silly. There are many surprising exceptions though. Who would have thought that a dark lunger could equip a shield & weapon and look good.
I'll be sure to credit you if I ever get the thing finished (30% now)--it's freakin' huge, with 35 regions in the New Sorpigal Peninsula alone
Sounds excellent! It was always one of my favourite series though it was too hard for me. If you need any help with templating let me know. As for the dragon, you'd need an extra animation as spells normally originate from the drake's arms. The drake's spells are specially modified to originate from it's mouth.
