Oooh loving the new Destro animations!
what about actual body animation like they did for shamans and mages ?
i'll miss the big arc chaos bolt does while it travels to the target
Not sure if you guys ever played warlock but the deathbolt animation is literally a placeholder being used by Demonbolt right now..
The Shadow Bolt visual needs a serious update. It hasn't been changed since Cataclysm.
All of those spells do turn green if you did the green fire quest right?
no new animations for affliction dots?and the animation/particles for Hellfire isn't new, it's the same as it was in BC (no idea when locks lost hellfire, though)
Chaos Bolt finally looks great. One of the best spell visual updates in years. It honestly has been a really bland looking spell since its introduction, and only made worse by MoP making it giant (as it was redesigned into what it is today). Incinerate looks bad only because of how tiny it is. The coloring and the impact animations are fantastic, but it just looks like a tiny bolt when it should be much wider. The old, slow slithering animation we had before WoD was perfect, just needs this new color scheme. Drain Life needs its edges smoothed, it has that vanilla channel sharp-edge on it when it connects to the caster's hand. I had imagined Death Bolt being Mortal Coil's pre-MoP animation. While Demonbolt is certainly nice, it fits Demonology, not Affliction at all. And finally, Shadow Bolt should just go back to being the old animation.
I believe you can preview the new Warlock Animations on Model Viewer, they're under "Loc"
Man i get excited im going to see new affli animations and its the same stuff it was shown days ago,destro as well was shown like 4 times alrdy. stop repeating things for content...
Could do with an audio revamp too, the fire spells especially since they've been the same since introduction. !BUT! I'm more than well aware it's early days and anything can change.Incinerate really needs beefing up. I can't help but think I'm watching a Tom & Jerry or a Loony Toons cartoon with it... It's like a gunpowder trail setting off into a sub-par explosion.Chaosbolt looks dope AF, it just needs the arcing back. I wouldn't mind it having the dragon-skull theme returning, but that's just a minor nit-pick.Shadowbolt needs either an update or a revert back to pre-Cata... It doesn't fit the more serious theme the game appears to be going in.Errything else is looking neat as heck, and I'm super psyched to play it in future.
The Live animation of Immolate makes much more sense.I mean if you immolate someone you expect the animation to show that you set someone on fire not a minuscule effect also when you incinerate someone , how can you do it with a spit of fire as opposte to the live version?The rest are amazing and trully look like an upgrade to the current version.
I think some of the new animations could have a bigger size. Immolate engulfs the target in flame on live compared to a smaller burning area on beta. Incinerate is smaller when travelling to the target on beta. I worry they could be lost when you are in a group/raid with multiple spells going off or visuals on a target.
Destruction lock spells look less impacting overall. The only one I like is the Drain Life, but that's a universal spell.
