Minimal FX for the Domination inherent.

Basically what the topic says. Would it be possible for this to be a thing? I know a few people who've been put off of Dominator due to the frequent glitter explosions. Not that I mind it as a player sometimes but it's kind of off-theme for my dark/dark dominator shadow weaver to randomly erupt into rainbow sparkles when she's doing her thing. =P

I don't find it so visually repellant that it would stop me from playing Dom's like Rad armor prevents me from playing those characters.  I'm kind of fond of the visual effects of Domination even though I'm not a very big Aura type of person.  The explosive flash should stay to indicate you're in Domination and it's only really a second.  The rainbow sparkles that persist after I can understand the want to turn it off.  I like it though as it gives some signifying that you're a Dominator and I'm never bothered by the look while fighting and if I'm standing around and don't want to be coated in rainbow I can just let Domination stop and start it when I'm ready to fight again.  

 

If it's no trouble to do it sure, if it's too hard coded into the inherent though I'd rather they tinker with Rad armor, Ice Shields and other more visually intrusive stuff first.

I personally think there are themes that can make the craft store plague bomb effect work but many characters simply don't gel with it.

I don't know if it's doable just from the nature of the power.  Even changing stances for walk, another sort of "inherent," is a little weird with how it's implemented. If it *can* be done, sure, I'm all for more options. I don't think I'd *use* it, but I wouldn't object to it being there for those that would.

Primarily on Everlasting. Squid afficionado. Former creator of Copypastas. General smartalec.

 

I tried to combine Circle and DE, but all I got were garden variety evil mages.
