View Full Version : Will the truncated buff bar ever be fixed?

When guild ship shrine buffs were introduced to the game in June 2010, the number of buffs possible on a character increased to the point where not all the buffs can be displayed. Only 28 buff icons can be displayed -- the rest are truncated or missing altogether. It's a pretty common occurrence with ship buffs and the Protection from Elements buff.

Nearly 18 months later, and this visual wart remains...

They gave us a workaround by right-clicking a toon to see the full list of buffs.

Is that broken too?

So, if you want to see "your" own buffs, you need to right-click on your "own" toon and see the full list of buffs?

Yes, as i said above, it's just a workaround to avoid waste of SP or time reusing same buff/s.

They also reversed the order they show up in so that the oldest is on the left now, so generally the ship buffs get pushed off screen instead of the short duration stuff.

Although it would be nice if it could take up the entire top of the screen.

It would also be nice if 'de-buff' effects where on a separate row, like they are for enemies in the Z display.

Workarounds are fine as a temporary solution. The problem has existed for 18 months, which far exceeds any notion of "temporary".

Be careful what you ask for because the easiest fix might just be limiting characters to 25 active buffs at any one time, instead of just not having them displayed.

That's pretty arbitrary.

I think that's exactly his point.

2010?

um try 2006.. I've had this problem since well, forever.

Axer package has always invovled more then 28 buffs. If my buffbars not cut off, your doing it wrong :)
