    Alright Superz, here's your animation job for the Wraith:

    Stand - make the Wraith hover a bit
    Attack - make its cannon's "leaves" shoot
    Walk - make the Wraith hover more, but steadily
    Death - if you can't make it, I'll get Revilo to do it. It is just an explosion, and then the model will turn darker and tilt. If you need an example of this anim, tell me.
    Decay - the end sequence of the death anim should be the start of this. Just make it slowly sink to the ground. I can do this one.

    You'll need to make some bones, there should be at least
    Bone_Root (which is like every single vertice)
    -Bone_Cannon (the whole of the Wraith's cannon)
    --Bone_LeftLeaf (the left 'leaf' of the cannon)
    --Bone_RightLeaf (the right 'leaf' of the cannon)
    --Bone_TopLeaf (the top 'leaf' of the cannon)

    If you don't understand anything, I can explain more.

    After that, I'll give it to Revilo, who can then add some glows to the 'leaves' of the cannon and its back engine.

    gotcha.. Il do everything i can, but i suck with particles and im not sure what to make the shoot anim look like... just all the "leafs" tilt inwards, and then get "pushed" back by the explosion thing when the missile comes out?

    Edit: i found a mistake with the cannon "leafs". They dont show when you look at the back of them. This may have been my mistake, and im not sure if i should continue to animate it if we need to fix this. You most likely will only see the backs of the leafs because of a top down view, so we should probably fix this.

    @Superz: Yep, so they should close in, like a Venus fly-trap, and then get recoil from firing.

    It works fine for me. Even in the World Editor.

    @Hevenblood: We've nearly finished the Phantom and Wraith, and Fingolfin has donated his Covenant skins.
