    Dropping banner in combat, nothing but 'Hey look at my cool banner?"

    Outside of being in town (teleporting to other characters), do banners do anything?

    No, they're pointless.

    Well, at least they make a cool sound.

    I think they are intended for pvp. It's the diablo version of tea bagging.

    Idea - they should re-implement and integrate the talisman and banners. Banners become a placeable spell turret depending on your charm load configuration within the talisman.

    Use the banner as a time machine, go back two years into the past, tell the Blizzard team "Banners are stupid. Cut them instead of the mystic" and everyone wins.

    Aha!

    Banner should summon a follower of your choice when you are in multi-player and make them say something.

    The weird thing is the Blizz guys always pump the banner up like it's some awesome mechanic. It's a piece of cloth.

    The banner system as far as clicking the thing to teleport to your teammate is good. Everything else is dumb.

    The designs aren't impressive-- my banner doesn't reflect who I am in D3, my character does. Change banners into statues of a player's character complete with up-to-date gear, then we'll have something neat.

    And as discussed using them in combat is pointless. I can't even think of something for them to do.

    They should add a rune effect "a rain of banners to decimate your foes"

    It's just something fun to play around with. Invent a game to play while waiting for afk buddies. Tic-tac-banner or something :p. It would be fun if it did something else like, explode a corpse for extra blood that sprays at your screen, ragdoll 3-d style, but it's a fun thing anyway.

    i thought it would be cool if players teleported to your banner (but you cant send your banner over gaps) so you lay your banner down in a corner, giving players a safe spot to teleport onto and not get gang-raped my the monsters your fighting.

    Banners just aren't fun. Like, seriously. Playing D3 is fun, banners are not fun. Banners are dumb. I learned of the button to use your banner, did it about 3 times waiting for the cooldowns; then i realized it did nothing and I was wasting my time. Have yet to press it again.

    I think it would be awesome if you planted your banner, and all the monsters just stood around admiring it and complimenting you on your design skills :loving:

    And we have the good old hot tp's again... no thanks! :)
    Will give potential for people to ruin public games.

    They will be in the safe corner, looking at any stupid player who take their banner right into extra strong, frenzy boss pack.

    You need to save it and cast it down for extra style points, like when a pack of fatties explode or after the SK dies. Sunglasses optional.

    If your definition of fun was the only definition, then you'd be right. However, we all have fun in different ways, so, don't use it, and don't worry about it?

    You mean to tell me none of you had fun pressing the 'g' key (drops the banner) in open beta this weekend? Although it only serves the purpose of showing off your banner, its fun slamming that thing down, especially after you just killed the SK and slam it on his corpse, ARHHH lol
