Health Bars are Wonky

    First, I'm speaking of the health bars that you pull up from creatures.

    The problem in the 2d client is that when you have a creature's health bar pulled up, after you kill it, it darkens then stays on the screen after they're dead. I would like the health bars of dead creatures to disappear once they're killed.

    Now, onto the health bars of pets. Also in the 2d Client.

    Currently, if you have a pet's health bar pulled, and you try to mount it, the health bar disappears. I would like it if when you mount a pet, their health bar stays on the screen, it just darkens out. Then when you unmount it, the health bar gets its color back.

    I agree on both counts.

    Also it would be nice if the names on the player bars didn´t change all the time. Not sure what triggers it but all of a sudden they all have the same name or a pet´s name...

    I read the title as "HEATH bars..." and I thought this was a public warning about dangerous candy.

    They're only dangerous in the quantities I would eat them in, if I had them.
    I love those things.

    If I have one health bar pulled up it goes away when I kill the creature. If I have two pulled up, one stays and one goes away.

    Pets have always done that.

    Yea they always have, but just because something has always been that way doesn't make it the best way, or mean there is no room for improvement.

    Few things I'd like to see happen to health bars...

    Creature/Player dies his health bar greys but stays.. this can be used to open the corpse (would be great for when corpses "Stack") or the bars vanish but we get an "Open Valid Corpses in Range" hot key, that only allows the corpses of Hostiles you have looting rights, to open with a button press not valid against player corpses of course.

    When you leave/disband a party all bars revert to Normal not disappear

    the Before Mentioned Pet Mount/Dismount Bar function

    I put in 2 more bug reports for these issues. If other people could put some in, maybe they'll straighten it out soon.

    I would really like em to fix party bars, so when someone loses conn and comes back, or they add a new member, the bars don't jump all over the screen!

    i think the bar staying after the monster dies is when other things happen. It seems to be random but maybe some things you do may be causing it.

    if you run off the screen and come back

    The health bars of dead creatures stay on screen even if you recall out of an area.

    you can pretty much do this.

    Create a macro to "select nearest" and then "follower" and it will behave exactly as you say when you press the macro button.

    The same is true for killing things - create a macro for "select nearest" and then "foe" and the opposite will happen just as you like.

    this is in the 2D client.

    And add a legacy 'spell lock' bar too so you don't accidentally keep dragging your icons everywhere. :p

    I"m currently hunting right now with multiple pets. The problem HERE is, when one of them dies, it's healthbar completely disappears. There are times when we would like a healthbar to remain...can ya fix that too?

    It's an 8yr old bug, and no, EA won't fix anything. Just give them your money.
