After attending a class on the Runemage, one thing became painfully obvious: it’s kind of hard to learn things that require visuals if you can’t actually see them. While I understand why the developers don’t want the spell trails to be shown at all times to everyone (lest we begin the Runemage graffiti apocalypse in Highsteppe), there is one idea our group came up with as a suggestion:
Allow spell trails of runemages to be visible whilst in a party as a togglable option
This can be made as a fresh new option akin to the ability to hide player hats and what not under graphics in the event you’re a paladin and have no care to what artistic work your runemage is doing. This would allow runemages the ability to learn (shocker) from other runemages more easily, since now they can actually see, from their own perspective, what the drawing actually looks like.
Someone found a new shortcut, but isn’t really tech savvy enough to know how to take a screenshot? Invite to a party and take a look. Want to go on a graffiti run around Highsteppe? Go for it! Want to host a class and see what abominations of spells the students are doing? Let it be! This simple option could really help out and was suggested over 3 years ago, but hopefully asking for it as a party graphical option may give it some better hope of integration.
