View Full Version : Please remove spellsinger notes that float around people

The notes that float around people after my bard uses the spellsinger song are extremely annoying. So annoying that I don't want to use the song on the full party and I end up trying to uses it away from the group.

What is with the notes anyway? Why do we need them unless they are meant to be annoying in an attempt to discourage the use of the song?

Please Turbine remove the notes or make them last like 3 seconds and go away so I can use the song. An spell icon is quite sufficient to indicate the song is activated.

Only good thing I can say about it is if someone falls behind, they've just got to follow the trails of notes from the group to catch up.

I don't see how they are that annoying. I find them quite cool actually. Definitely not a detriment to the point where you aren't playing the spell for the whole party.

I like making the party play the 'blues'.

Blur has an ongoing effect, why not this?

I like the notes!

And after all, once your party is a blurry stony hasty glowy mass standing in five colors of mist--it actually helps you find your party members :)

Nah, keep 'em. I prefer visual buffs.Yeah, they're pretty cool. I especially like feather falling - the notes seem to be coming right out at you like the star screen saver. More effects like this would be fun.

Put a toggle button on it, at least. Change the color and transparency some. Give it a different music track.

I love it - and to withhold your spellsinger song from the other casters in your group isn't very nice. You remember that the song helps save 10% of mana used, right? If I was a cleric, and knew you were trying to keep it away from me, I wouldn't be too happy about that! More mana, less wands! ;) The first party I used it with was like, Hey! We're blowing bubbles!

It should be kept - it's awesome! :D

yeah the fact that it uses the same music of inspire courage is a big let down in the creativity department.

but yeah i totally love the notes, i also liked the permanent fear above ur head when u wore fearsome too.

How about something in the middle?

Just reduce the amount of notes floating around. Maybe keep the notes tight around the toon like blur but a single trail line of notes behind them.

I think it's cool. If the graphics engine can handle it without extra burden, then I say keep it and add more like it!

Making them transparent would be nice. I like all these effects it would just be nice to be able to see through them better.

Like the notes and it is a far cry from the old Bless/Paly noise....

Yeah except the clerics kept casting remove fear on me over and over and over again. :D

Edit: Oh yeah...keep the notes.

I like the notes but my crappy pc can't run on high graphics with them. Maybe give us a toggle to turn that stuff off like floating names?

Turf the notes. If the Spellsinger runs ahead to fascinate a group of baddies, group comes up behind and you can't tell who is fascinated or not.

And for those of you unfamiliar with fascinate, the whole point of it (ala Hypno) is to break them one at a time. Unless you have a Ranger pop one at a time from a distance, it's pretty hard to figure out with all those spellsinger notes flying around too.

I despise the effect... :mad:

Keep something, but make it look different from facinate and perhaps a bit less intrusive visually.

There is a middle ground, maybe they are a specific different color, or they flow down(as opposed to floating up), a few less notes, more to the center of gravity. Possibly.
