NPC Jem use only a standard slash animation. For a player version they would need at least 5 animations, primary, secondary, knockback, combo A, combo B. Also they need to decide what Combo A and Combo B actually DO...
HAIL HYDRA!

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

I'd really like to see a Grand Nagus staff that uses the game's existing sword animations.

I wouldn't rule it out completely, as an item that may appear in the game at some point in the future. But we were not able to fit it into the team's schedule for the launch of this Lock Box.
In short, you couldn't cut/paste it.

Ah, bummer. I thought they did more than just that one slash. I guess I shoot them too quickly?

In any case, thanks for filling me in.

Thanks for replying to this. I was also wondering since the Dominion box and stuff is coming out. This weapon I wouldn't mind using as well on my characters. I love melee weapons specially fighting Borgs. They have yet found a way to adapt to a blade! My Klingon has tons of fun fighting them cause of it.
