Transparent textures

Does anyone know if it is possible to turn a creature model transparent without modifying the .hkb file? I am trying to create spirit versions of the wildlands bosses, but adding transparency to the dds texture just turns the model white instead of invisible.

Or alternately, does someone know a hex-based modification to .hkb files that would do the trick?

This is the guide for modifying the .hkb file if you decide that's worth the time: http://forums.elementalgame.com/437515/page/1/#3285776

And here are the newly-transparent Avatars of the forgotten Elemental Lords, guarding the ancient temples scattered across the world. Each lord confers a unique area effect at the start of battle, and it's not known which lord's temple you are entering when you take the epic-level quest. Definitely perks up the late game a bit.

It would have been great if the skeleton .hkb files had more consistency in their particle attachment points. But I guess the effect is good enough as-is:
