Re: A Word on Reskinning Spells


What Wids said.
Also there's no argument here, merely a question asked, answers given and opinions spoken.
No need to be that way. :O
(skin spells -are- rather ugly, though... but yeah, visual cue)

Re: A Word on Reskinning Spells


On a semi-related note, the combat log actually does tell you how much absorbance is remaining from Stoneskin.

I will be working on an option to toggle on or off the skins for Shadowshield, Barkskin, and Stoneskin nonetheless.

I hate Premonition (the pink cloud filled with glowing eyes) and it causes immense lag. I will not be re-instituting that visual. In the future I may cause it to make your eyes glow, however.

Glowing eyes would be cool.

Glowing eyes is creepy. o_o
Can be nice in some circumstances, though!

Combat log does tell you about your (and your target's when you deal damage to it) remaining Stoneskin point but if more than one PC is involved, Combat log tends to scroll up too fast for that to be any use.

Lag is evil and makes people and servers crash, though. It should be avoided at all costs. *nods*

Off Hand: Fred the Chunk attacks Billy Bob the Boss: *miss*
Fred's Pet Swamp Mutant attacks Billy Bob the Boss: *miss* (buncha numbers)

Yarrr. emoticon

And if I could have found places for Warm Beer, Wet Fart, Rabies and Parallel Parking, they might have gone in too. emoticon

Are we back in 2010? Why don't we get mad as hell and vote for the tea party while we're at it. Biebler is old news! We're all about Harry Styles here.

In fact, starting next update Haze's bard song will serenade you with the music of One Direction.
