I think you can create the effect your after with the first Fire damage one + jumping. I think. I could be wrong.

Close. The fists effect becomes really high up if your framerate is high... The first fists buff that has an animation is enough for that purpose.

Really? I haven't played MA very far but I always thought that the BIGGER the nanoprogram the higher the flames.

I'm with you on this one. Back when I played an MA, I had smaller visual flames, while higher level MAs had bigger flames. I could see both of these in the same screen, so I doubt it has anything to do with framerate or other graphical setting.

I cannot remember when they start getting 'bigger', but I think it is a gradual progression as the line gets higher in QL.

A friend MA once casted Fists of Stellar Harmony on my agent in fp MA, and the flames were really high. My agent was 2ft tall and the flames were too, so as high as myself. They were the same size on the caster, who had normal size, 5'5 or so. Maybe the size is independant of character length and they always look bigger on little MA's? :)

hey again all,
last night i levelled twice to get the nano Fists of the Polar star, because i had seen only the flame fists as being visually taller on higher level MAs..and i was disappointed after uploading it, because it did'nt seem to be visually taller. Today morning i logged into my MA and cast the buff and now its atleast twice the height it was last night :lol: i cant understand it..

but i'm very sure that the height of the flame goes up with better qls of fist buffs :)

Fire dmg buffs are generally taller than chemical or energy ones. No matter if it's Fist of the Polar Star or Fists of Stellar Harmony. However I'm not sure if the length is further determine by current frame rate or if it's just random.

The higher QL of the fists nano's is the higher flames, but it can be visualy bugged and show taller flames then usual.
I've seen really huge flames on my char with most of the buffs except the really first buff.
I don't know if they are bugged for others as well sometimes, but I know that the polar fist and the stellar fists is different, the stellar fists is a bit taller then the one's from polar don't know the difference between the other nanos thought, could always log on and check but i still believe that when the flames get really HUGE, then it's some kind of visual bugg.

Edit: The highest visual i had, probaly was bugged. Then the flames at least twice as high as my char from the fists, had to zoom out a bit to see it (since i usually stay pretty close to my char, because of the tiny mish rooms always ruin the zoom out =P).
