Hey! Hello, I want post here an small request, please make a Blood Mage that has animations as if he were using a sword. I will use it for an RPG-like map based on the history of the Blood Elves. Thanks.
HerrDave has a "Myrddraal" model and it is exactly what you're looking for, an edited bloodmage with sword animations, but you'd need to ask him for permission to reskin it as it looks like a human/acolyte death knight
EDIT: you can try animation transfer with that model, using mdlvis Matrix Eater, if you're lucky it will be easy, but if you get a deformed monstrosity you have to ask someone to do it for you xd
It's pretty easy to try, but it doesn't always result good, if you get HerrDave's permission i can try it for you (i have mdlvis Matrix Eater), but i don't promise a good result as i'm not a moddeler myself and i only know how to perform simple edits to models xD
What i have in mind is:
>Take the myrdraal model
>extract blood mage model from the MPQ
>transfer myrdraal's animations to the bloodmage model
>???(here we need luck lmao)
EDIT: i was talking about Mdlvis, when i really meant Matrix Eater, but it's all the same, i'm trying to edit it now, HerrDave is a very chill guy i'm sure he will give you permission, if we don't do anything stupid like uploading our frankenstein i don't think he'll care, you have to give him credit for his model's animation in the credits of your map tho
Question: do you need the bloodmage with a sword already on the model, or you want to attach weapons ingame?
Hey i'm sorry i failed miserably at it, i got a deformed monstrosity upon transfering the animations.
But i can give you the blizzard's blood mage model i extracted from the game files, maybe you can figure out yourself how to transfer the animations, or ask someone more skilled than me to do it for you
