Anyone who plays a Ratonga, I have a question for you.

While in the middle of combat, when you do a ranged attack with a bow, do you ever see your character pull out a bow and shoot it?

The reason I ask is I was just playing a barbarian male and he does shoot a bow in combat, and I have never seen my ratonga do this. My ratonga also doesn't seem to be playing dodges.

I wish. This would be amazing to see. But I've never seen it on a ratonga.

Speaking of Ratonga's, I'd just like to offer a special thank you to whoever did the voice overs for the /bye emote.  Cracks me up everytime I hear it.  Especially when a guildmate does it just before I pull a named.  SMILEY

While you're tracking that down, could you take a look at this, please?

Soga models do everything badly.

So, there's no hope for a fix?

This made me laugh out loud. I've been saying that since they first put them on test server. That's my biggest complaint about those models =).

As for Ratonga bow animation, I made a little female ratonga ranger to see (since my only ratonga is an inquisitor).

She would pull out a bow eventually, but it was slow to come out. She'd start shooting with her little axes. If the fight was over fast the bow never came out. But if the combat lasted a little longer the bow would eventually pop out.

I also made a little male ratonga ranger & it was the same. Both did eventually use the bow animation in combat but it was slow to pop out, usually after the combat art that used the bow was over.

My Ratonga girls all show bows when they use them to pull.  My Paladin, Swash, SK.  They have the animation for the bow until they get into melee CA attacks.

I don't use bow attacks in a fight with the tanks, but the Swash does.  I'll see the animation, but I'm usually busy with hotbars that I don't notice the bow or not.  I have seen Ranger/Assassin Ratonga who use the bow in combat.  I did try a Ranger Ratonga, and in fighting the bow would show.

Dodges, as in doing the dodge animation?  I've seen my girls do that now and again in the middle of a fight.
