    Arrow Change Vorpal Animation!

    Please change the Vorpal animation to show the enemy's head fall off. Thanks! ^______^

    I also want this armor on my Warforged.

    No need. There's so many different enemies and if kids/some teens saw a head fall off well... it'd likely lose it's T rating.

    I mentioned enemies because it's a large undertaking to do all the animations and art for the minor detail. It is fine as is.

    Edit: I'd rather have that dev time go towards new quests or new races/classes

    Considering how long it takes us to see new character/monster models or animations in DDO and even a lack of animations that should have a higher priority (such as spider dancing missing, which causes them to not stand still when dancing under an Otto's effect) it isn't likely that this request will be carried out.

    At least make the enemy flash red instead of blue like destruction.

    I find having both the same to be aesthetically displeasing.

    How about just putting VORPAL in the damage reading? Or ASSASSINATE when that happens, or BANISH, or whatever. Yes, I know you can just look in the combat log, but who keeps that on when in a party or with guildies?

    An easier change would be to change the color of the skull icon from white to red when the mob dies due to a melee insta-kill.

    I'd probably go with just a red flash like someone mentioned above -i don't really think it's necessary to see the animation team work on hundreds of decapitation sequences for each mob.
    Also this suggestion reminds me of the "The Deathmonger" mentioned in this article

    Or AoC. Plenty of creative ways to see people's heads being removed there (as well as arms and legs).

    Better yet, go play Fable. When you cut someone's head off, you get to play soccer with it.
