It's official: Sylvan blade dancers can just turn in their swords and go home.
The sanctuary units woulda swept the floor with them.

Pretty much, "good" faction my butt
Nobody said "good" faction. Stereotypical - definitely.

Lots of people said they were a "good" faction.
People were catagorically sticking them on the "good" side, I was talking about that the last two pages (amongst other things).

Anyway, the animation vid.

WTH is the Yuki-Onna doing? seriously? WTF?!
Looks like she's having a seizure.
It looks clumsy and weird, not graceful at all.

Kirin does a nice manouver.

Mizu-Kami's animation is also pretty... well... un-intelligable, what is she trying to do? also she looks very ugly without the in-game water effects.
At least she has some grace, but I still don't like her as a faction creature.

Kensei death animation is a bit over-dramatic, but I kinda like it despite that.

H6 does have a few over the top moments, we all knew that when we saw the vamp swinging that sword around

Hey that's a good observation. Haven't seen the movie, the last Eastern film I watched was house of the flying daggers

River Spirit still looks booooooring, and the Yoko Ono or whatever she's called looks like a walking dead, which is a real pity, given the promise of the artwork. Kirin still rules all, but no surprise there.

I've watched it some year ago, and wuxia movies ftw

Honestly, I do not see the resemblance, the Yuki-Onna is doing movements that seem more at home in Kabuki then a dance that whilst erratic, has a flow of movements that compliment the costume and illustrate the story the dance tells.

The Yuki-Onna is wearing a much heavier and longer Kimono, even visible in the way she is animated, which creates a sharp contrast with her movements, but I think the plasticy looking hair is the biggest problem when doing movement that erratic, movements which do not seem to mesh with her kimono, and lack the destinct flow.

Finally my gripe is still:
What is she doing? what animation is this? is she casting a spell? ir it an idle animation? is she attacking?
I could imagine it working if she's attacking with ice and sleet assaulting the foe as directed by her movements.

Edit: New Shields!
Nothing amazing, but not bad either, good, solid, reliable artifacts, both of them.

Edit2: New Amulets!
Both look like nice and desirable artifacts, +2 Hitpoints on your biological core units with 20-30 hitpoints should translate into a nice 7.5 to 10% hp boost.
I'm guessing Undead, Spirits and Constructs don't count, so all of Necropolis, the Glory, Mizu-Kami, Yuki-Onna and a few others do not reap the reward.
Amulet is basically +6 Knowledge in old terms, which is pretty potent.

Maybe it's the "funny" animation, as the others have had. Perhaps those are victory animations or something.

Since it's a translation from the chinese website, don't you think it's rather +2 hitpoints to every living creature (opposed to elemental/mechanical/undead) ^^ It would make sense since it's THE Ankh

Which is more or less what I said right?
I didn't say it SPECIFICALLY targets core, if that's what you're getting at, just saying that on your Core it's obviously going to have the strongest effect, 7.5% to 10% roughly by the information we have anyway. (which may or may not change before release)

+2 hitpoints is rather weak with such large pools

We're actually getting an ok amount of info this week!

With the respec option in H6 I think artifacts can become more useful. Take the Snatching Gloves that grants the Pathfinder ability at rank 1. If you've already chosen this ability they are useless, but if you get them you can change your ability into something else. Perhaps not the best example, but I'm getting very excited to see what kind of hero builds we'll be seeing, there seems to be so many possibilities!

You can still switch artifacts between heroes, right?

Yes, I assume so.

Edited: ^^I meant useless to your hero, you could of course give them to another hero, but that's not my point.

sorry, but I had to do it

This has been a pretty good week in terms of news. Until today's video I thought we'll be getting orc animations on friday, but now I wonder what it will be. Me, I'd love me some neutrals info. We still know so little about them.

Resisting the urge to post the Diva from Fifth Element...

To actually add to the conversation, the Kirin animation is fantastic. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of it in battle.
