    And as said in another thread... this is only the beginning of the ballpocalypse.

    Dont look a gift Asura in the mouth.
    No seriously, dont. Shark teeth.

  • Have to agree it is way past time to be able to toggle those effects off. As a fashion freak I refuse to make them cause everything has to be color coordinated for me.

    Btw wtb solid black weapons. Or dyable weapons.

    Checkbox to hide others balls.....

  • I actually came back to the game after a 4 months break to get the balls, got the wvw ring in 2 days, now working on the pvp amulet might take me a few months.
    lost most of my interest in this game, but these balls managed to get me back.
    Ahh I love balls

    I don't have any Legendary trinkets, but my necro has something orbiting him and has been for a week or so.

    I'm already bothered by the Function Gyro on Scrapper.
    I'd welcome an option to turn off all those shiny legendary annoyances.

    I have to agree. The legendary effects of jewelry , in my opinion, are some of the most uninspired cosmetics in the game. I have yet to look at someone that has them and say to myself wow that looks good. I have avoided crafting any for this sole purpose. The only thing that has changed my mind recently on perhaps trying to craft them is the new Legendary Armory that will be released in the future but I am still on the fence about that.

    I think adding a new tab in hero panel that lets you customize all aura's and legendary effects would be the best. A simple toggle for every effect you have on your character and make it either on or off.

    A simple toggle for every effect you have on your character and make it either on or off.

    AND THAT IS WHAT WE NEED YES!

    It shouldn't just be for your own character, you would need two toggles, one for your own character if you wanted to turn your own aura's off(though why get the aura's in the first place if you do that) and a second for all other characters. Personally the light show doesn't bother me in one bit, and I'm both light sensitive and have epilepsy(but not triggered by flashing lights). It's not my character, so to each his own I say.

    Yes...no...maybe...what do you want, can't you see I'm busy saving the world...AGAIN!

    Agree this is rather short sighted by Anet the visual assault was already bad enough then to add these stanky balls. It's time to invest in an option to turn off all player practical effects from items.

    Its not some great achievement that others need to see. Combo those with the players that have the blue and black and bees ect. It's clear some people like looking at that but dont punish other players.

    They also scale with race, which means that the Charr and Norn has the biggest balls of them all.

    I think the new legendary trinket balls could be reduced slightly in size since they hover over the character and obscure the area around them. But watch the trinkets be forgotten and largely unpursued if it can't be flaunted when an option is made to entirely disable them. Same goes for infusions and legendary weapons, which will tumble in value if an option is ever made to disable their effects. I argue that the problem isn't most of the trinkets and infusions themselves, it's that some people go so far as to equip tens of them at a time. And those are rare and extreme examples.

    I think the bigger issue instead is overwhelmingly caused by the nuclear chain-reaction of attack animations. While I like to enjoy the highest quality of graphics, the sheer number of people spamming simple attacks will reac havoc on just about anyone's PC setup regardless of animation setting.

    Regarding those that turn their character into a walking bug zapper, a better solution would be placing a maximum on the amount of infusions that can be displayed on a character at a time (I would say 3 to 5) on top of the legendary trinkets. After all, at the moment, you can stack the same infusion so many times that it obscures your character entirely.

    Just way too much Visual noise in the game and low settings do not help

    You can also make the legendary without having that effect active. The new legendarys seem to be going in the way of upgrading the legendary itself for the cosmetic effect

    You want to show them off go for it, but the rest of us shouldnt have to see them. It isnt some stunning achievement of skill that makes over players say Wow. An option to disable others floating balls and visuals allows those that want to display them to do so and those that dont want to see the effects to not see them. You wouldnt even know who has the option on or off.

    We have an option to disable all unique sounds from other players, but it’s time to give us another option — to turn off unique and legendary visual effects because it’s seriously hurting my eyes.

    Well, but even this option isn’t up to date. Even though it overwrites all glider sounds, it doesn’t work on mounts. So, you have to hear all those annoying distortions. :dizzy:

    But yes, even the Standard Models can’t help any more. This game needs an option to deactivate all extra visual effects, which aren’t from skills. Optionally—like the sound options—for other characters and/or just your character.
    Maybe they should also update the Standard Models for the competitive modes to make players use standard gliders and mounts, which also use team colours.

    On the other hand, I’m always surprised, people actually dress their characters like a light pillar. It doesn’t look good. :s

    Take a step further, in pve if an allies skill isnt a heal or a combo field i dont need to see it, so, give me an option to disable all the offensive skills of others as well.
