Visuals for certain Boons?

I think that it would be nice to have visual effects for specific boons like Stability (maybe some others too). Having to click on different opponents just to see if they have key boons up or not is kinda annoying and restrictive.

I'd like to make hard swaps to specific targets when key boons drop off but you never know what boons they have unless they're your current target.

    I'm for the idea but with the amount of visual clutter I'm not sure there is a good way to go about this. You could maybe tag on some small icons on the end of enemies names that display key powerful boons (Stability, protection, ect) but if enemies are stacked it still wouldn't be very readable. If there is a practical way to go about it then I'm all for making things easier to read.

    No longer playing the game due to PvP being abandon.

    To be fair this is already implemented to some degree as protection, aegis, resistance, alacrity, fury and retaliation all have visual clues on/around your body.

    Not a bad idea to give stab a more recognizable effect since it is such an impactful boon. While they are at it, Alacrity's visual could be toned a notch or ten.

    Healing orbs are a mistake. Please delete them ANet.

    the only visual cues we need are aegis, resistance and stab. just need stab to complete the trio.

    you don't know till you know, ya know.
