Dark Inspiration is an animation override unlocked after purchasing the Lightning rod hat from the 2016 Hallowe'en event. When applied, it changes the animation of the Think and Idea emotes. Before the inspiration mechanic was removed on 18 September 2017, it also changed the animation displayed when gaining inspiration.
The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
- patch 21 November 2016 (Update):
- The lightning rod hat and its 'Inspiration' animation have been separated into separate overrides (for players who have bought the hat reward from Iron Doc), allowing players to toggle the hat and animation on or off independently of each other.
