    Blinking would need them to overhaul the entire graphics engine of Mabi

    Just get used to your thousand-yard stare

    I just assume my character blinks when I do so I never see it!

    This is because Milletians never blink in the first place.
    They just stare. A very blank, empty, soulless stare.

    A stare so empty that enemies attack on sight out of pure fear, not wanting to gaze into the abyss any longer.

    Making friends with residents of Erinn made difficult because they find the eyes to be so creepy.

    For if one stares into the eyes of a Milletian long enough, they will stare into an endless abyss.

    An abyss that seeks to destroy all that dare oppose it, all for an attempt to gain power and riches.


    ...or it could just be a limitation of the game's engine. Think of it what you will.

    Puppets are newer. Player models have been around since the game came out.

    Some flying puppets or doll bag summons might appear to blink, but they actually have two sets of eyes. Periodically the closed pair will surface and give off a faux blink, but they will never wink.

    Anyway a milletian can go years without eating, and doesn't even know how to die. Maybe we just forgot blinking is something you're supposed to do too.
    Our human disguises aren't entirely convincing.

    Or alt+9 if you don't want to catch flies with your mouth.

    And actually...

    All expressions on faces are interchangeable because of a small extra transparent texture layer on the avatar's face. I'm surprised not a lot of you didn't notice this when zoomed up on other characters. Basically it IS possible. They would just have to animate the facial textures which allow us to change styles. If I had access to the coding and textures I could do it. I use to make animated textures on Second Life. We could simulate blinking pretty easily.

    Think of it like having a gif on your avatar's face.

    We are all training for when the Weeping Angels invade. Why did you think so many people "AFK" staring in the same direction for hours?

    I've felt this way ever since I bought my old Snowy Owl.

    I'm jealous of my owl's ability to blink!

    A Weeping Angel in Dunbarton would pretty much be quantum-locked the moment they spawned in, at least until the next server-maintenance.

    Who's to say they're not already among us? Better not put any closed eyes on your character.

    The eyes are the windows to the soul, they say, and we all come from the Soul Stream.
