Cammoflage (and mass) and Spider Skin Visual Effects

Unread post by niapet » Thu Apr 12, 2018 7:25 pm

These should be removed. They are stealth spells and since spells with visual effects play when coming through a transition they give away stealth rather than promote it. Ideally all spells should be selectable to turn off visual effects since this bug exists but at the very leas the actual stealth spells should be addressed I think.

Doesn't the character options menu from right click take care of that? I haven't played with it much.

That removes the whole spell, not just visual effects.

Unfortunately, even with no visual effects any spells you have in effect popup over your head on area transition and my understanding is nothing can be done to remove these popups. The (unfortunate) rule of thumb is - If you are going to try and follow another character in stealth, do not have buffs active. You can use buffs if staying in one area, though some will make you apparent to True Seeing. However, if you are going to be following through a transition buffs will give you away OOC.

the noise happens with visual and audio effects and nearly all spells have an audio if not a visual as well, greater heroism for example which is +4 to all skills will also make a noise through transition

the only two things i know of that will not are invisibility and bard inspirations
