There is some BG talk about this.
IMO, intentionally DAT swapping to remove animations to make a JA instant is an exploit, and is simply cheating. And if I am a GM and caught someone doing that, that guy is going to GM Jail.
If too much people doing it, you guys are just making SE to do something about this and that may completely broke DAT swapping for cosmetic purposes, which is completely harmless (I do not do DAT swapping myself, but I know how to do it). And A LOT OF PEOPLE really will not like that to happen. And if way too much people are really abusing DAT swapping, I am in a favor DAT swapping should go down the road of Salvage duping, MPK patch, or Rune Chopper.
Thankfully i couldn't find anywhere in that thread giving specific instructions on what to do. Or else lots of dorks would use it and we would find DNC nerfed somehow. Something that would totally not be worth the relatively situational and small edge it would give anyone using it.
Seriously rooting us in place for those dances is one of the few nerfs i did agree with. Curing while running is overpowered, even more so if you can keep your jig up permanently while doing so and never letting the enemy catch up. We have plenty of overpoweredness to our job as is and shouldnt taunt SE to break us. I speak from the experience of a guy that keeps having his chosen jobs @#%^ed with by SE...
And quite frankly there hasn't been an occasion i can think of where i thought "Damn youuuu SE and your DNC animation rooting @#%$@%!". Choco jig is a little long for something that's supposed to save time, yes, but i can live with it for keeping the job as awesome as it is.
RattyBatty is always one of my favorite posters here. Everyone should read the Beastmaster Code about conduct and common sense in camps.
Less Q_Q about things not going your way. We are Dancers anyway, you don't want to dance? More Pew Pew plz! Edited, Apr 4th 2009 11:28pm by scchan Edited, Apr 4th 2009 11:31pm by scchan

Art for the sake of art itself is an idle sentence.
Art for the sake of truth, for the sake of what is
beautiful and good — that is the creed I seek.
