Annoying auras on Radiation Armor

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to switch off the auras that surround the toon when the armours are active. I've taken my time creating a toon I'm proud of but when I'm out there fighting I can't see my toon at all or much of anything else because of all the bright or dark auras constantly surrounding me.

Some Powersets have a 'Minimal FX' option, sadly not all of them do. Not sure if Rad Armor does or not without hopping onto Beta to check.

 

Edit: Unfortunately, it appears that Rad Armor doesn't have the Minimal FX option. Perhaps throw it into the Suggestion & Feedback section. All you can really do at this point is silect the left-most colour option in the Bright palette.

Pick Bright Radiation and then pick the darkest grey there. It changes the effect into a light, dusty smoke effect like they're standing near a smoke machine. That's the best I've managed.

Thanks I've tried bright and dark grey, not the best but far from the disaster it was, cheers.

Why would the devs make all these amazing costume designs for us to play with, then cover them in shite.

I'd say that many folks consider their character's power FX as part of the costume and at times spend as much time colouring them as they spend on the costume itself. Why they didn't provide the Minimal FX option for all of them, I have no idea.

Older sets I can understand and forgive but Rad was one of the last ones they added so it's quite weird there's no MinFX option.

In the old game I had a Dark Armor/Ice Melee tanker, a pure melee controller.  I paid no attention to the 'dark' in Dark Armor and colored everything a vivid pink.

Before they added Water Blast, I used blue-coloured Fire with my Time Manip character Clepsydra.

I have a Rad/Rad scrapper. I learned the hard way that I can't see the ground turn blue before the blue flames emerge in the Apex TF when I have Irradiated Ground and Beta Decay running. Really shouldn't have power animations that get you killed.

They also have audible cues for the death patches.

If you hear it, move.

I used to run into a similar problem in WoW, on the rare occasions when I tried to PvP in battlegrounds. In WoW, the targeting reticle is a circle on the ground, rather than bracketing the whole character like we have here. So the hostile player I would have targeted would have a red circle under them ... which would become completely invisible if a Death Knight player used his "Death and Decay" aura, which places a red-colored damage patch on the ground. Or if a fire mage was spamming AoE. I couldn't see the red circle, so I would completely lose track of the specific enemy player I was trying to hit.

 

Anyway, if people think Rad auras make it hard to see their costumes, try Dark Armor or the Fire auras. My dark toons look like little black clouds, and my level 50 Fire Blast/Fire Manipulation/Flame Mastery blaster just looks like a fireball her own self.

Yep, found it really odd radiation armor doesn't have a minimal option as I also find it obnoxious.  So much so that I've yet to bother playing it beyond testing it on test server.  And yet there are sets that hardly have any fx that do have a minimal option, like willpower and ninjitsu.  Course I'm one of those that appreciates minimal even for those.
