    *EDIT / UPDATE* PRAISE THE SUN - IT'S BACK!!

    The Light spell effect looked like a mini-sun (really cool), Now there is added spell effects to it that makes it look like a mess! Why? Please change it back

    Yes, I will agree, I preferred the "mini-sun" effect as well. :)

    The effect looks pretty good on wisps. But I agree its a but much for the light effect. Either way I like that it is different. It may be one of those things that people will see in a video or screenshot and say, "hey that's SotA".

    I'm liking the new mini-sun effect. Maybe it is bubbling a bit too much, but honestly that old sun was pretty dull and needed something.

    It looked like the actual sun from a NASA photo! How is that dull?

    But now that they fixed ambient light, I won't need to use it as often.
    I really want my shutters back on my row house, I don't understand why they would get rid of them.

    I much prefer the previous version of the light spell, too.

    I for one am not at all found of the new bubbly sun. Then again, I didn't like the old one either.

    Old one: fairly bright moving annoying light space that periodically got in my way visually.

    New one: weird bubbly sun thing that is thankfully less bright, but now larger and gets in my way more often.

    Traded one annoyance for another. Small bright, large dim. Both in the way.

    Hopefully one day we can choose in some way (light sources keyed/colored to your highest spell school?). Or, how about just a choice to not display the orb? All I want it the localized light... don't have any interest in the glowy ball.

    +1 old light spell.

    the new graphic looks more like 'bubbles' perhaps good for water magic..
    I did like the old one myself.

    cheers

    edit: actually thinking more about that bubble graphic, it would work well for when consuming special tier types of food and drink.

    you are one of a few people I know that liked that ball of fire, it was just a nuisance in the view of most player, and we asked to have it removed.

    "Who is we?" :confused:
    They didn't ask us all and thus the term "we" doesn't apply. I don't care for it having bubbles, because it's not made from regs which would bubble is together they made a chemical soap.
    It's not a really big deal, but it made a strange distracting curiosity from what the player needs to primarily focus on. Some quality of the hypnotic comes into play with such distractions, but this is it's only redeeming quality, "if that can be seen as a quality in some strange way"...

    Maybe "we" need a new look?

    I like the new one better. It is clearer and crisper vs fuzzy blur. But more importantly I am so friggin glad that the huge massive spell sigils are gone when casting.

    Can't we just have light without an object to represent it hovering over the avatar's head, obstructing the view?

    I have exactly two problems with new effect:
    1. It is practically opaque (or too bright, or whatever) --- hard to see through it, especially when enemies are around.
    2. It is constantly moving, which is a highly distracting for a feature constantly on a screen. The movement does not bring new information, just exacerbates #1 above.
    The old effect was not perfect but, the light ball was more-or-less transparent, and didn't distract with unnecessary movements.

    I would prefer light without an object, actually, too.

    No. It's supposed to be a trade off from a torch. The light spell is alive, let it live?
