Buff And Ability Indicators

Recommended Posts

Right now there's no indicator when abilities will end

 

I propose a nice light UI addition under the current player status bar:

 

(Excuse my terrible MSPaint skills)

Some variations:

 

-Self-cast buffs could display on the ability icon itself and ally buffs appear below

-Instead of clock meter simply use numbers

 

For people concerned that it'll contribute to UI clutter, just make it a toggle. There may also be the option to toggle self buffs and ally buffs separately.

[1] Not sure if applicable since it has a static cast time, but is decently long

[2] Tricky because it has multiple components

[3] Enemy debuff. Might be worth not including

[4] Remove icon immediately once uses are consumed

[5] Clock approach probably makes more sense. Have it tick down based on damage taken. Could also just display straight shield value, though number can reach 4 digits

[6] Can have multiple instances. Might be best not to include
