I've seen people suggest in the past that the auras and footprints from legendary weapons should be split from the weapons skins and be togglable effects once unlocked. I think this would be a great idea as it would motivate people like me to work towards getting legendry's for weapons we don't use very often as well as reduce the feeling of being locked into a specific weapon build or look after investing so much effort to acquire a particular legendary. It would also open up options for the people who don't like particle effects as they can toggle the effects off for their character and so be able to use the legendary skins if they like the weapons aesthetics. It could also possibly open up more gem store options for new footstep effects if arenanet wanted to. My question is does anyone know if a system like this would even be possible to implement with the current weapons or would it be similar to the situation around dyeing old backpacks where the games coding prevents it from being done?
