    The True Meaning of Gestures

    Post by lior926 on Wed Aug 08, 2012 4:18 pm

    I just recently thought about it, but there are some gestures that people use them not for their true meaning.
    like the look skyward, it looks like a face palm more then actually looking skyward. and point up looks more like a battle cry then actually pointing up.
    I don't get it, the developers made this on purpose? and there must be more then these two, right?

    cheers - he is praying the sun...

    There is the pointing down gesture and the "Well! What is it!" gesture that people use a lot. Players use that a lot to try to irritate their opponent.

    "You suck...",
    "Come at me bro.", "Noob, I own you." or.. "Get on my level."
    "Come here b****."
    "That was it?", "Waste of my time."

    They can be used for whatever you want to. I use the proper bow without pants after I beat someone I hate (ganker). Use it as a moon.

    Anyone use prayer as a T-bag?

    I like to point forward and then point down... you know, "you are going to die" is what I'm trying to convey. The problem is, I usually end up dying instead.

    I think that you saw the maggot-attack from an invisible egghead what appears to be a glitch.

    The one time I saw it myself , my opponent was wearing Smough's Chest Armor aswell so it might be related.

    I point at things I want to bring attention to. I point at my host if I get summoned by a ganker so the invader knows I won't help the host. I point at the fog gate if we get invaded, to tell the host to go there, don't fight the invader. I point towards the other invader/duelist if we're trying to figure out out of two invaders and one host, who should fight. I don't trust other invaders to sit back and not try to gank the host, plus I'm not a good duelist so they usually beat the host when I won't haha. I look skyward when I get hit by something really stupid, like the time a slime fell on me when I was invaded, and the invader just stood there watching. I jump for joy if my ganker host dies. I jump for joy if I barely survive a boss, or if I see my host land a riposte. If an invader bows and starts to black crystal out when invading a quester, I jump for joy and send them a friendly message. I point down if I drop an item, kind of like "Pick this up." If the host or phantom isn't moving and the host/summon is standing there looking at the immobile one, I'll shrug. I prostrate when I kill bosses I like, such as Nito and Gwyn. I praise the sun if I see another Sunbro.

    That is one of my favorites, but typically I use it in the context of: I forgot I used up my last cast of fire tempest, which is causing me to shake my fist in rage at you the invader. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    The gestures are actually used entirely appropriately. I could go over them 1 by 1 if you wish, and i'll explain how their names align with how players use them.

    Look Skyward "seriously?"

    Prostration "my bad"

    Point Up "salut" or against gankers "home run mutha trucker!"

    Proper Bow "thanks muchly" or against gankers "full moon"

    Well What is it "come on!?" or "w.t.f"

    I use Prostration as a teabag by cancelling it with another one once I hit my knees. Only use it on gankers though.
