Skills that have passive cosmetic effects?

Off the top of my head, I can only think of 3 skills that have passive cosmetic effects:

  • (Daredevil) Distracting Daggers - 3 blue daggers rotate around the right wrist of the Daredevil.
  • (Guardian) Signet of Courage - Blue disc on the floor below the Guardian.
  • (Warrior) Signet of Rage - Orange orbs float upwards around the Warrior.

Are there any other skills that have effects like this when they are on your skill bar? Because they're pretty cool and I'd love more.

    A merged soulbeast has the green swirly things

  • The different Facets from Herald have different Icons that glow on ground around them depending on which ones they have on.

    And while I don’t really think of them as skills the different stances a revenant can be in make him glow a color related to the stance. For example Mallyx gives the revenant a purplish tint with some small purple fire like affects around his hands. Of course my Rev is an Asura so it is harder to see... so maybe I dreamed it all!

    Elementalists have different glowy hands based on attunement depending on gear.

    Chronomancer or Ventari Revenant has magenta fire effect whenever they apply alacrity.
    But I think it's semi-passive though.
