I wanted to make a vanguard because I much prefer blasters than pistols but oh boy, I really don't like the animations of vanguards compared to powertech.

I just wish that powertech could equip a blaster instead of pistol. This should be an option.

Also I would like if they could improve the visuals of some vanguard abilities like Shockstrike, High Impact Bolt and Ion Wave.

CAVEAT LECTOR: I detest both of them. The reasons aren't important.

It's "Stock Strike", not "Shockstrike". What exactly should "hit the enemy with the stock of your rifle" look like?
Something you find difficult is a lesson on how to play better, not a punishment for playing badly.

Sure, but OP was talking about vanguard abilities and got the names of the other two correct...

Yes and Shockstrike is a Vanguard ability too, that's kind of the point. If OP plays mostly Plasmatech Vanguard and wants the animations changed, that would include the ability Shockstrike, not Stockstrike. Since a Plasmatech doesn't have Stockstrike (well technically before level 10 it does, but that's such a short time). Also note of pedantry: It's Stockstrike, not Stock Strike. One word .

I usually enjoy your commentary, but on this one you're kinda off base.
