What does G do?

General Discussion
Pressing G drops your banner. As far as I can tell, this doesn't actually... do anything... other than dropping your banner out of the sky, to impress people with.

The banners in town always teleport others directly to you, not to your banner.
impress people with.


Pretty much just that.

It's kinda cool to defeat a boss with your group and then you all "/cheer" by dropping your respective banners.

EDIT: Oh they might do something else. If so I'm completely unaware :<

It should work outside of town very similar...
I've never tested it, but my assumption was that players warp to your banner instead of you. This allows you to drop safety points instead of players warping straight into you. Or, it lets players warp straight into death.
yeah what is your point?
I really think we should be able to use the banner mechanic from anywhere instead of always having to teleport+banner, when you get behind.

Like if you drop your banner (G) and click it you teleport (with casting) to the player most advanced in the quest active.

And in PvP it's what you drop on your foe's corpse... presumably... well I'll be doing it.

pretty pointless


Showing off the sigil you spent hours to get is pointless?

I'd much rather have the simple and customizable banners than a vanity pet or something >_>

EDIT: And Bash you stay up really late lol
It's like the spray thing on CounterStrike.
I think it's awesome. Now I can totally show off with a banner! One of the cooler way to do so. In other games, you can show off by idle in the town with a mount, now we do it with banners!
from Blizzcon they have a pic where the banner get really elaborate.... with skeletal base, signet at the top and side ribbon... really cool :P
is this thread even real? ya'll gonna show off your banners eh? you can show them off to people who will be impressed because it sounds pretty stupid. whats impressive about a banner everyone has???
the banner it might be a piece of the puzzle for cow level portal!
I like the way the banners react if you drop them in the middle of a fight. The in game physics have an effect on the banner waving around.

I think it's fun. Looks neat.
