    Before patch: Damage to the player is yellow. Damage to the monster/target is red.

    For some reason fighting a crazed mage with my pet, yellow numbers pop up and I'm not being hit. Whats the story on this?

    It appears that the damage a pet does to the target comes up as yellow too. Please put it back to red; seeing the yellow makes me confused with my character being hit.

    From Publish 100 Release 2 notes:

    "The classic client text hue for damage that pets receive is now yellow instead of red."

    I assumed it would only be that way on TC, but maybe since it was a client change it got pushed to live once you patched.

    It needs to be a different color. or give the option to set it to what you like. its too confusing to tell the difference between the character getting hit and the target, especialy in close combat situations.

    you seriously cant tell when your getting hit?
    you dont watch your health bar, you do math on the fly?
    you my friend are a master level mathematician!

    Damage you take is yellow. Damage you give is red. Thats what I see.

    But damage taken and received with pet is both red. Maybe I need to copy a new toon.

    This is a CC thing if anyone is wondering. But I get all red #s on pet. Yellow damage to toon. Red damage from toon to mob.

    I'm getting something completely opposite.

    The damage the pet is receiving is STILL RED

    The damage the pet is DOING is YELLOW.

    Someone goofed. And seeing yellow numbers in the mid-100s pop up over my pet when he was fighting right after a dismount (before I could pull his bar) was really scary until I got the bar up.

    I think it always was that way in the EC, so they only changed the CC? But I might be wrong, I confess I don't pay any attention to those numbers I just keep an eye on the health bars. I hate seeing my chat box full of numbers and the overhead ones are just as annoying, my husband on the other hand is obsessed with those numbers but he does huge damage compared to me. :oops:

    I don't like this change.

    Was doing Corgul with guild last night and I only saw yellow numbers unless Corgul did its area attack, then I saw a group of yellow numbers and one red number. It was confusing, it didn't need changing put it back!

    I'd like the ability to turn them off completely. I just watch the health bars.

    Yes has always been this way in EC I think - I keep in mind: yellow numbers are the dmg I OR MY PET are doing - red (danger) is INCOMING dmg

    This is not shown in the journal in EC - that would be annoying

    With the numbers I have a better "feel" how much dmg I am dealing/receiving - the Stat-bar for me is only so I can see overall progress of the fight

    I can see how changing them around would be confusing for people, any explanation as to why they changed it?

    We also had a big scare last night when seeing that yellow damage, thought we'd hear a death bell for sure when we saw 150 in yellow! While we are not entirely sure, we did get the impression red and yellow seemed to interchange a bit.. confusing indeed!

    I like knowing the damage given/taken with different colors but I wish we could change/pick the colors is all, or be able to turnoff.

    Last night, after the patch, it switched to red doing, yellow receiving.

    Not logged on yet today to see if it stayed that way.
