    Default Remove astral shard icon from main UI

    I get that you guys want to make it as easy as possible for people to spend money. I really do.

    But I pay a VIP subscription, I buy the collectors addition of expansions and I spend money on TP whenever the whim takes me.

    I don't need a constant on-screen reminder of my astral shard balance tucked away at the bottom right of my screen, with an option to take me directly to the store to buy more.



    I can't see a UI option to disable this.

    Just remove it folks, it's tacky and beneath you. Astral shards are not the primary currency in the game, they're an add-on for people who want to invest in them. I don't.

    This really is tacky looking. Not to mention interfering with my hotbar layout! If you really want to cram it in there and make the cash shop seem even more intrusive on game play, at least put in a checkbox to disable it as well.

    Add a checkbox in Options to remove this from our sight!

    If I wanted to know my AS balance I would open my inventory.

    I'm with you big time on this. Not a DDO playing day goes by that I don't feel pressured to spend money. I think it all needs to be toned down a bit.

    Please remove this. It is so unneeded and it's NOT going to promote sales of AS if anything it's going to irritate me to the point where I don't want to give you ANY money!

    I'm having a hard time imaging any situation where I would need to know how many astral shards I had at all times.

    Yes, please, remove this. Before it goes to live. It block three of my hot bar icons, and serve absolutelly no purpose. We already can see how many shards we have every time we open our inventory or try to spend them on guild ammenities, gold seal hirelings, or buying augments.

    have you seen how depleted the AH has been since P2WAH?

    I do agree though. my screen should only have the necessary things on it for optimal view. not cluttered with my P2W shards balance. its obviously blatant why Turbine would do that. we never have had a bar for plat balance on the screen.

    I don't see how anyone could make an excuse for this helping to sell shards. They could make AS buttons all over or make them take up half the screen I'm still only going to buy them if I need them. Well not buying them for sure now.

    This is enragingly stupid.

    Thanks devs for sliding this one in. Maybe you'll stick a ddo store icon on the top of enemies heads so everytime I happen to click on a target the store pops up offering me some nonsense.

    While you are at fiddling with the UI :

    - Remove that round thing at the bottom of chat windows.
    - put back the transparency icon on the left side of the chat window, it's annoying to have the eye hanging all aone in the middle of the screen.
    - Give us all the required information so that we can make/update customized UIs.

    Yet another 100% cosmetic fail.

    We should see A$tral $hardS inventory when we are spending them (like with silver and gold rolls and other in-game A$ purchases) and when we open our inventory.

    For what is supposed to be an entirely optional currency, stuffing this in our faces is a very crude way to attempt to drive its usage.

    /this.


    It has no use to any player, besides being annoying. It simply messes with the Hotbar layout and is a dilletant attempt t getting people to buy Astral Shards.




    At least give us a checkbox in the options panel to removeit. You can even leave it so that the default setting is visible and you have to search the options to remove it yourself, so most people will just leave it there.

    Yea, this is not information that we need to have on screen all the time. It doesn't change while questing. If it were to change while questing, like from the in-dungeon repair... then the information is on the dialog where you're spending them.

    The hireling/ship buff vendor displays the information. I think the only place where it isn't shown when spending them is in Barter Dialogs if you're buying augments....


    Doesn't need to be there. Please remove it.

    Oddly enough I was going to ask for a shard counter to be put into the daily dice rolls. I currently have to open my inventory in order to see my AS total during daily dice rolls. Adding a shard counter to the main UI is not the way to fix this issue or any other.

    Not only is it tacky, but why do I need to know my AS total at all times? Besides daily dice and the shard exchange, I have pretty much nothing to spend them on. Give me a pile of things to spend them on and maybe you can justify putting the AS total right in the main UI. Until then, at least add it to the UI elements that actually need it, like daily dice.
