Can anyone confirm/deny if "/dance *" still works for syncing dancing and other emotes?

#10 Posted by Benny (1953 posts) -
@shinboy630 Tried it and confirmed it does not work. However, a dev recently did an interview with some press site and they're adding it soon. I don't have the link at hand but I'll find it shortly.

@shinboy630 Mayyyybe it's actually already in the game hahaha there's a few videos of it floating around after yesterday's beta. I guess I couldn't get it to work

OK, now i have a problem, I was gonna start Norn cos I like the whole were-animal thing. But that Asura dance may have clinched it for me.... curses i knew i shouldn't have looked at this thread.

That asura is awesome.

So what determines which dance animation you get? Race, profession, gender?

#14 Posted by Benny (1953 posts) -
@pekarn Race and gender as far as I know, you can synchronise dances with others though so everyone can do every dance with friends in perfect sync.

@pekarn: Just race.

/guitar is a command, but it's not tied to any animation yet. We might get it later, along with /drums.

Also, /dance * was recognized, but it didn't seem to work right.

The inclusion of the Carlton dance made this game a way better product.

It probably works similarly to how it did in GW1, where the emote sync triggers on 5-second intervals. All participants would have to enter the emote in the same interval and would start emoting simultaneously at the end of that interval.

That is quite possibly the best thing I have seen on the internet... EVER!

Oh man...I was going to have my main be a Sylvari Necromancer...but I may just have to change to Asura for the dance alone.
