Single Blade Option for Double Bladed Lightsabers

Every now and again my double bladed lightsaber bugs out and it appears to only have one blade activated. It looks AWESOME:

Even back in KOTOR I used to wish that the various lightsaber forms had animation differences as well as stat differences. I would love to see this in SWTOR.

I wouldn't want this high on the list of priorities for game updates, but one day it would be awesome to see the offensive saber forms using both blades, and the defensive form switching to a single blade.

Seconded. Although I would actually add a toggle for double-bladed. Left, right, both, or none.

Was always against weapon restrictions. Between offhand generators and modding, everything should be fair game, within class category.

I'd love to be able to use a DBLS on my sage so you can have your SBLS if I can have that

Hehe. I meant that since we know from the films that double bladed lightsabers don't always have to have both blades activated, it would be cool to add that feature - and have it tie into the stances (Force Technique and Combat Technique).

A single bladed lightsaber can't magically grow a second blade

I'm not after switching between a double saber and a single saber, but simply switching off one half of the double. Purely for aesthetics. Hence I'm not suggesting this should be high priority, but that it would be cool to see it one day

I guess a nice side effect would be that it helps add further distinction between Shadow specs. Tank shadows will most frequently fight with a single blade active, while DPS will fight with both active.
