    Comparison of Companions' Animation Time?

    Has any player ever created a list of companions ranking them by animation time? Just curious :P

    For example, Iago's critical animation takes about 3-4 seconds whereas Egg Shen's takes 7-8 seconds.

    Re: Comparison of Companions' Animation Time?

    While it would be interesting to have someone with the time make a complete list of critical animation duration for each character, generally melee units take more time than ranged units because theirs have their own theme and special animations. 'Ranged's' tend not to have critical themes because it would be tough for Kingsisle to map out the "bullet timing".

    Re: Comparison of Companions' Animation Time?

    I don't believe anyone's trued to do this from what I know. It depends solely on the companion. Some animations are quick (ex. Louis' Epic Hit), some are long (ex. Egg Shen's Mega Hit). Some of the shortest are ranged companions' because there's no theme song music.

    Black Wolf Bowman Level 70/Dashing Seamus Bowman Level 70/Gruesome Sergio Bowman Level 70/Loyal Zane Bowman Level 70/India Bowman Level 70/Able Anna Urswick Level 70

    Hiya @Stephanie! No one has ever done that before, but I will try my best to get it together. That would be a cool guide, I would think!

    It would indeed! Perhaps you could get help from people here on the forums to help time companions that you don't have.

    @monkeypoos and @RealDux I don't have many ranged companions as a midlevel privateer, but some of the ranged enemies I've fought have slow animations too, e.g. Aztecosaur Mummy. It does this deep breath and smoke thing before it attacks.

    Bonnie Anne definitely has fast animations, though.


    Iago and Mustang Rowdy are the fastest melee companions I have had so far. They just go up to the enemy and swish their knives right away. No dramatic pause and weapon-twirling like Egg Shen lol. (I still love Egg Shen, but probably wouldn't use him for farming xd)

    Well, if you feel that some Companions' Critical animations are too long, you can always make it faster by selecting it in the options under, "Fast Combat".

    The 7-8 seconds is with Fast Combat already turned on, haha. Egg Shen really is an attention hog

    Re: Comparison of Companions' Animation Time?

    Fun Fact: The only ranged companion in the game currently that has music when they critical is Prince Yulefest, but do keep in mind that he's basically a Christmas themed Armada Musketeer, so there's that.

    I'm a max privy and Egg Shen is great for farming in the higher level dungeons, being the versatile goose master that he is.

    Time is a problem when farming to be sure, but answer this: Would you like the battle to take 4-5 turns or 2-3 turns?

    The difference could be in the critical frequency of your companions and Egg Shen is nearly on par with Peter Quint in that department, not to mention his power moves help too. There are others to fill his role, to be sure, but there are situations where he is a great choice (i.e. Zeena farming).
