The graphic overlay effect for death has been adjusted. (http://ddowiki.com/page/Update_7_Release_Notes#Death_Changes)

I really liked this graphical overlay change on death. You know, how you can actually see more than two feat in front of you when you're spending time in Dolurth?

You want to know what grinds my gears?

Shadow Walk (http://ddowiki.com/page/Shadow_Walk). The sprint boost of sorcs, wizards and UMD monkeys everywhere, readily available from the Portable Hole. Its still using the old overlay as before, that is to say, a purple version of the old "Hazy" Dolurth days. I love me my scrolls of shadow walk to boost my movement speed, but seriously devs, test that sucker out in an large area like the Red Fens and see how extra prone you become to getting turned around and lost. I thought these scrolls were supposed to save time on catching up with a team, not cause you to waste more of it. I can barely find my way around Shavarath what with those scrolls causing the +3 Purple Haze of Blindness and all. I can understand back when we had a +3 Gray Haze of Blindness whenever we got turned into a ghost, but if you've decided that overlay needed to be scrapped, then for the sake of consistency scrap the purple version.

Please take heed of this suggestion, and find time to apply a similar overlay update to Shadow Walk in the future. Blind arcanes and UMD monkies everywhere will thank you.
