    I noticed in the monk abilites that Monk will be able to open inner gates, are we going to get visual queues like you see with Rock Lee and Guy in Naruto? :)

    As it stated, gates are an inner point reached and I doubt it will be visual at all.

     

    Pantheon isn't really in the mood of flashy effects so...

    There's flashy particle effects all over the place.

    Opening the inner gates doesn't get to flashy until you get to the deeper gates. Based on the monk descriptions there are 6 gates.

    We probably have a different definition of all over the place.

     

    Non magic skills, focused on self control on mastery, I personally don't see it having flashy effects but sharp animations for gate tied skills.

    Unless they overhaul the class, from PA4 we found out that all the 'Gates' are, are just lore flavor. It's just a builder/spender resource. Use energy to build Chi/Chakra to then spend it on bigger abilities. The 'Gates' are just the ability costs in the form of Chi.
