    I suggest that there should be an option that allows you to put your sword on the right side. While in doing this, you cannot attack. This is to show someone that you do not have an intent to slash him/her. While in this mode, it should take five seconds to be able switch back to attack mode. There should be a visible icon or loading thingy near the player while he/she doing switching.

    Then being lefthanded this could be a great trick to make a surprise attack :^)

    As an ambidextrous person, I agree with Mat

    Why not go with the usual PK modes? Peaceful (attacks don't affect players), Guild/Party (attacks only affect players not in your guild/party), normal (attacks only affect PKers), ...

    Since games are never created with lefties in mind, your answer does make sense, xD.

    That action is something similar to keeping the weapon, of course, it would not be wrong to have a second action, which serves as a symbol of "they are of peace, or not aggression".

    To be a little more realistic, although of course, to put an action more to the game, involves more extra work, if it were simple, it will not involve much time, apart from other factors. I suppose it would be acceptable, the idea is not "absurd", but if it is something outside the plans already marked by the staff. My question is whether in the years that just left the forum, this same idea would have been taken into account ?, or would the same answer ?.
