An option to hide the extra katanas. Aside from the skill Seamless, 99% of our skills utilize only one katana. It seems pretty contradictory for ninjas to carry more than what's needed to get the job done, don't you think? And I don't know if it's just me, but I feel like there's more of a sense of suave and finesse of using a single blade to assassinate enemies instead of six. On top of that there's less clutter and clipping to be had with fewer katanas.

I'd like to be able to choose which two swords show (right hip, left hip, or the two on the back) along with the stance (right handed or left handed).  The six swords are just so excessive.

Yea. I'd hide the katanas on our back and right hip.  I'd be also nice if we could put our shortsword on our waist side

1 hip katana and 2 katanas on the back, cause at least he uses the ones on his back and sheaths them, and s + lmb animation as well as katana shower require the katana as well as sheathing them in animation

Then wizard would like to have an option to hide 1 orb...

Pointless kinda. Awakening weapon is all katanas, like wiz's awakening is 2 orbs.

He actually does use all 6

Main sword ( the one he holds ): most abilities

2 side swords (not including left main sword): chaos spree

2 back swords: seamless

Which leave one sword on the right, it took me awhile to figure this out, however when you left + LMB ( side slash left) he uses that one sword and that's all its used for LOL. 

Of course you could say he uses the same one he uses the same sword for asura chaos but pearl abyss actually put some care into our animations, I know some of theach animations are based on "laido" I think is what it's called. Martial arts of sheathing and unsheathing. 

For example our lvl 60 ability Mach explosion when you see the "down sword motion" as described on the ability also, was a motion actually used to get rid of blood before sheathing your sword. Makes perfect sense with drastic measure but I digress XD.

We actually use the Hiten Mitsurugi-ryu style!!!! Jokes aside, yeah they're modeled after a legit sword stance style, that uses just the standard 2 sword setup that samurai had.

if you have ever seen soul eater there is a character that used swords and would throw them up in the air at the beginning and utilize them by jumping from sword to sword, kicking them, grabbing and throwing. Just an endless assault.

I don't mind all the swords....But I'd definitely stand behind the option to choose which ones show

either this, or use them more visibly, as suggested in the thread i made before seeing this one.

Would also like an option to hide or move the shortsword, not a fan of having it on the back like that, on the back of the hip or something would be cool, like horizontaly across, like the Assassin in Blade and Soul, or like in the Tenchu games.

As @Booger pointed out, all the swords are used in separate skill animations. What you're asking is for them to redo the motion capture and reanimate every skill to use 2 swords of your choosing? That's an unreasonable expectation and it would be easier for PearlAbyss to just make another class altogether. Unless you want to pull swords from invisible sheathes, I don't think you're going to get what you're asking for.

it's really not visible, if you look VERY closely you can apparently see they are used in sura chaos spree, and the ones on the back are used for seamless, but, come on... we don't NEED those extra katanas, we could do all those moves with 2 katanas. It's actually NONSENSE to draw Long Katanas from one's back, and does not work, as the arm is not long enough to draw the blade, that way, which is sheathed in a long hilt.

If on the other hand they added some skills*** which supply a real reason for us to carry around these 6 katanas, i think you wouldn't have threads like this one, with 90% of players saying "yup"...

***remove block jump + concealment and just let us use non awakened versions in awakening, like musa gets sprint... And then add skills which use all of those katanas.

I'm loving 6 swords but 3 would be reasonable ^^ We use 3 swords after all :P

I would prefer Zoro - One Piece style than this...  Not saying it's not cool though xD

its also nonsense to put a huge greatsword on your back, not to mention a ridiculous lance being held with one arm. Its a game, classes are over the top. Nothing new here. And fyi it is possible to draw katanas from ones back.

i agree with the block jump and concealment though

It would be nice to have the ability to just have the main sword show up and the others only materialize when you cast the designated skills for them. Kinda like in warframe when you want to hide your weapons when put away.

Can confirm. Everybody knows in strict order of importance; 

1: Looks

2: Gear

3: Skill
