Drain life and drain health should look like the reverse effects of the Erebus and Avatar titans doomsday's respectfully of Eve Online. Drain health like an Erebus's Aurora Ominae needs the fact that it's not just draining from one part of the body, but collectively from all parts like a tender caress but much more dangerous; drain life like an Avatar's Judgement featuring more of an ion storm forcefully removing life from the host. And yes, this would be a bigger burden on your already overtaxed graphics card, but a man can dream.
Almost all of it looks awesome! I love the new effect for chaos bolt; the dragon skull never really made sense to me (maybe could have a demon skull instead) but I think it needs the arcing travel effect back. That effect really makes it stand out from your other spells as the thing that you are always trying to launch.The life drain is so cool and vicious now! Its like you are ripping their life out with each pulsing heartbeat!Rain of fire really looks like the world is ending; very powerful.Soul fire should have something ghostly or soul-related with it instead of just being pyroblast.I like the new incinerate effect but it could be slightly larger.
Soulfire is kinda lame... looks like a mage fireball that's being lobbed at the target, the graphics don't seem to be in line with the others.Chaos bolt is too big... make it a bit smaller, and drawn out a bit. Needs more color mixed in, it seems to be just 1-2 shades of green with black... needs some red or orange in there.
Man, Hellfire looks really bad next to all of these. Hope it gets some love too.
I think the old chaos bolt trajetory better... the new go to much directly.Its so beautifull when you see that Chaos Bolt "dancing" to the target in a raid.I think they must adjust the path a little more erratic. At least, it chaos, not perfect.My opinion.
I for one like the "new" flat trajectory of Chaos Bolt. "New" because the arching trajectory was an MoP invention, the original from Wrath was straight too and I like it much better, it doesn't make sense for magic fireballs to follow ballistic trajectories. Same goes for Soulfire. I hope the destro version will be updated to the Demo version, that one looks much better
Hm can't wait to see what it all look like with greenfire. :)
New Chaos bolt animation looks very bad...
One thing that bugs me a lot is why things like Something-Bolt does not have growing ball in caster hands? Animations are not consistent.I know its kinda ridiculous to talk about reasonable and logic animations BUT: casting a spell is preparing energy to be directed into something. Shadow Bolt is getting/gathering energy using shadow magic and direct it to target. Let it be a small ball at the start of cast that then growing and increasing its size. Then the ball is what we see in already cast spell. Maybe they could not do it due to engine restrictions, but i doubt that.And trajectory of Incinerate now is ridiculous. Live version is so mush better.
Drain life looks amazing love how it converts soul/shadow magic into life and the burar effect on the target dummy makes the spell look very volatile its awsome :D
I am using green fel spells replacer for fire spells which are from the warlock questline. Will they get new animations aswell?
I am disapointed . It seems not only did aff get gipped, we pretty much got handme downs.
Hmm.. I'm almost done with the green fel fire questline. Now I've got more motivation to get it done eventually! I'm curious to see what it'll look like. And on a troll!
Chaos Bolt! Looks amazing. Never liked the "dragon" head look. And it's huge! Drain Life looks great too. Also, thanks for keeping the 'winding' animation on Incinerate. Always enjoyed that. Very excited about these.
Hm only thing I like is the cast animation of Chaos Bolt :-/ The shadow magic goes a bit much towards pink/bright violet in the spectrum for my taste. It doesn't look as dark and menacing anymore. Hope they still update and tweak this stuff.
