View Full Version : Your guesses on how Assassins dance

01-03-2006, 04:15
I'm guessing since Anet is going with the whole assassins=ninja thing. The ninja would often pretend to be court entertainers in feudal japan. Perhaps some kind of Japanese courtly dance... if such a thing exists.

Or... considering how other classes dance they will pick some pop reference dance routine. I would like to see the running man for the male assassins and the females should dance like ..Christina Aguilera. Oh yeah.

I love the post man. THis is very Fresh.

Personally I don't think Ninjas dance.

If they were forced to dance I think they would do a bit of a shuffle or vibrate.

They may also do some motions with their arms like they are flailing at a swarm of bees above their head.

I agree with Squid. Very original new post. :smiley: Now, as to the original question, assassins should flip out and kill everyone around them. :laugh:

But nah, my guess is that they'll probably perform some sort of martial arts kata like what the monks do, or maybe some form of Oriental dance.

They'd just better not dance the Macarena. Or the Numa Numa dance. :undecided:

Anet associate the Assassins in GWF to the ninjas? Any link to where this come from? Do the Assassins actually throw any shurikens/kunais? Just curious. As for how Assassins dance, it can be chinese style imho.

They'll dance like Rain!

01-03-2006, 12:22
I think they could have something really over the topic in acrobatic moves, with backflips, etc.

... it'll be the ele dance cuz they were to pressed on releasing them :cry:

I dunno but the assassins remind me of the Blade movies... I can picture them at raves - so I'm hoping for that sort of dancing :grin:

01-03-2006, 14:43
Can you say... Macarena?



01-03-2006, 14:48
Very nice suggestion :thumbsup: Katas are good option cause these "forms" are already in the game (monk's dance emote) but they might drop it cause one already has one :undecided:
But personaly I would like to see something like "80's street" dance movement. It makes me always happy to see someone stumbling like it :grin: or one of my favourite dances from music videos: MC Hammer - Can't Dodge This :afro:

Maybe they do some kinf of eastern-martial-arts showdance, e.g. jumping around and swinging weapons around them.

01-03-2006, 16:19
pop and lock FTW

01-03-2006, 17:11
pop and lock FTW Dude YES!

A weapons form wouldn't be bad either, but Pop and Lock would be so much cooler.

For anyone that doesn't know what pop and lock is I have some required viewing for you:

Hmmm. An assassin popping would be a good match with the ranger's breakdancing. But what about the female assassins? Please.. please.. be something sexy.

The macarena? That reminds me that there are a lot of bad dances Anet could use. Like say.. line dancing. Don't break my heart.. my achey brakey heart...

01-03-2006, 20:40
That reminds me that there are a lot of bad dances Anet could use.
And they're not afraid to use bad dances. Case in point: male elementalists.

I think they should do the Robot.

Well, you were right (at least for the male ones). They do that and the Moonwalk. There's a video on this topic (http://forums.gwonline.net/showthread.php?t=389036) with a Male Assassin dancing.


15-03-2006, 04:58
Assassin dance is Michael Jackson crossed with The Robot!... and it rules. Anyone not think so?

15-03-2006, 05:33
Ohhhh come on, what would be cooler than the robot? XD

[EDIT:Wow, I see I wasn't the only one who thought the Robot would be the coolest heh, koodos people!]

It's a new street dance. The Funky Convulsive Stroke. It's like Krumping.... but paralized from waist down. In riverdance, only the lower body moves while the upper body plays dead. Fem assasin dance is the exact opposite (with exception to the backflip). Basically they dance like I do. Stand in one spot and flail their arms like no tomorrow :laughing:

24-03-2006, 22:12
I dont know about the male, but the female assassin dance starts out with an obvious two-step (go to a hardcore show if youre not sure)

27-03-2006, 04:23
I thought it was some sort of aerobics routine. :shocked:

27-03-2006, 12:20

Awwww, but doing the splits shows you're flexible and -cough- it's quite attractive.

Well, I decided to record my female Assassin dancing.
5mb flash file (sorry, bad at converting avi's). So I upped it onto my site to save the people with a slow internet connection:

Remember, 5mb x.x
