I just realized this- all the wizards hold their wands (If its a one handed wand) in their right hand. I think we should be able to choose what hand our wizard holds their wand in. :D

Hahaha! Good observation. True.

I know from experience that not all wizards are in the right mind.

IT is true that they use the right hand for wands and swords, but if I'm not mistaken. When a wizard uses a bow they pull the string with their left hand. Which a right handed person would pull with the string with their right hand. So you could say the bow weapon is a left handed weapon.

I like this idea. I'm left-handed and this would be cool. :)

This would just take too much extra work for nothing.

Very good idea it could be a basic part of character selection and Ambrose could say " in what hand do you wish to wield the most powerful weapon in the spiral"

That's not entirely true. The hand you shoot with in archery is based off your dominant eye, not hand. I'm left-handed but I shoot right handed.

1.) It wouldn't be completely for nothing.
2.) Do you happen to mean "nothing" or the capitalized "Nothing"? Because for those who have read the Keys to the Kingdom series, "Nothing" is a dangerous substance that is literally nothing and can dissolve you into "Nothing". And doing extra work for "Nothing" would make absolutely no sense for "Nothing" is mindless and is not alive anyway. Anyway, happy I confused you by using book references, and it would be cool if we got to choose hands, and bye now!

Woah ... that would be cool. I know that my wand isn't the most powerful weapon in the spiral though ... Still using the level 30 wand, haha.

1.) Yes it would; Kingsisle would have to add left-handed animations for most of the wands of the game. Even if it were as simple as coying the present animations, flipping them around, and adding them to the game, many Kingsisle employees would probably find it a logistical nightmare to do it to most of the wands. What would be the purpose? To be more realistic? If you want a realistic game, play the Sims franchise games.

1.) it is simply a suggestion, you do not have to criticize everything
2.) it would be a cool addition to the game, this part of the message boards is for suggestions
3.) the purpose would be to add more choice to the game, and to be able to personalize your wizard more
4.) I have played the sims games, and they are not realistic at all
5.) bye!

Hmm ... it would be a cool addition to the game, but whether it matters or not is a matter of opinion on what the word matter means. Your welcome for confusing you.

1.) If you post an idea, you need to be ready for people who will disagree with you.
2.) And the "quote" and "post reply" buttons are mainly used for criticisms and supportive comments here.
3.) They're just avatars; I don't think they need to be personalised so much. Even if KI were to implement this, it would take a lot of work for them.
4.) What did you do wrong?
5.) Oh yeah, I forgot to say this, if there is a high enough concentration of Nothing, it will turn into a Nithling, which is actually alive.

1.) I am ready for people to disagree with me, why else would I be replying and basically arguing?
2.) The point of the message boards is to suggest stuff, and I am simply suggesting something.
3.) By technicality, Nothing is not alive, and Nithlings are alive, but I never suggested a Nithling is not alive, I simply said Nothing is not alive for if there were a surge of Nothing, that Nothing would not be classified as a living being, though it can be formed into living beings and other useful objects
4.) You read The Keys to the Kingdom series?

1.) Because you don't want anyone to disagree with you.
2.) That doesn't mean everyone has to agree with each other.
3.) I know, but technically, Nithlings are made of Nothing.
4.) Sadly no, but I looked ot up.

1.) My thoughts behind the posts, is that its much better to use constructive criticism rather than simply pointing out flaws and disliked things.
2.) You should read the Keys to the Kingdom series, its good.

Wow, lol I never realized that. Yeah, I think you should be able to choose, since some people are left handed.
