View Full Version : Blinking Spell Icons

As everyone is aware of I am sure, in some zones, the spell icons are blinking like mad. I bugged it in game but every so often it seems as if the devs are not told about the in-game bug reports so I mention it here. This only happened after the server was reset/crashed yesterday afternoon (certainly seemed like a crash). I noticed that when I went into a crafting area, the blinking went away. The blinking also went away in an instanced area.

Never Mind... looks like it fixed itself overnight. Sigh.

They do read all the bug reports you send in game. BTW server didint' crash yesterday -- just was taken down a couple times for things <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Yeah I had the blinking too on things like sneak but it seems to have stopped.

<DIV>This was happening on live servers yesterday (12-22-2004), I'm not sure from your post if you were talking about test center or live...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>But it looks to me like it isn't exactly a a bug. It looks like in city zones, or apartments, and maybe some other non-adventure areas, your buff icons will blink to indicate that the duration timer is not counting down while you are in these zones.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>However, I do agree that the blinking is a little distracting.</DIV>

This was on test that it was doing it yesterday -- but it wasn't non adventure zones. It was doing it to me in Commonlands and Wailing Caves.

<DIV>This not just a test server issue.  My wizard on Unrest was experencing it too yesterday.  Ive seen it on my charactes on test too.   Seems to be some zones but not all.   </DIV>
