    On the 2d client i can cast para fields all day. on ec it becomes difficult because of to much visual clutter. say i cast a para field to the east of myself and it is running s to n, it is hard to cast another one directly behind it 1 tile west of it and damn near impossible with each tile west after that. the glow from the first two fields blocks it. the smoke from the poison field as well is pretty and all but very hard to cast through. can we get a feature to tone down these effects so we can effectivly use our spells?

    thanks alot.

    have experienced same problem, although doing an energy field west or north of an existing identical aligned one in classic client pose the same issue.

    remember this problem from early melisande days :)

    the EC needs to just stop using new particle effects on top of old existing ones.
    How long now have wisp statues made no sense?

    I concur!

    I'm much more efficient with the EC normally, but when it comes to fielding, I have to rely on my CC buddies.

    I would also have to vote in this area that classic particle effects are much more pleasing visually. Fields look better, fire from conflags looked better in the classic aspect, old school wisps look better ect ect.

    hmm I guess this is one of those things where it depends on user, I like the EC ones better

    as to the casting of them though I would have to agree
