So the new Lightning Shield tracker concept is shaping up nicely.
It looks a little wide but I can deal with that later. Everything from the previous post has made it in-game close to if not exactly like the concept picture. Each crystal thing is a separate aura, despite it all looking like one big static one.
I took some artistic liberties and added some lightning spread along the blue tracks and I gotta say it turned out more awesome than I initially planned. I had a tough time getting around the choppy reset that plagues the MAIN ANIMATION portion of an aura. With some sneaky Zoom tricks though, I managed to make the reset look more natural. One issue that I foresee is that the strata level is getting too high and overlapping with default Blizzard window modules. I hope they add a strata system like Stuf soon. That would be lovely. Otherwise I’ll have to go through all the spells and bring them all down a strata or two. And I don’t to.
All you get is a screenshot for now because seeing it in action would BLOW YOUR MIND! “You” being the 1-2 people that bother to read this stuff. Thank you!
Maybe it’ll make it into Weak Auras UI Montage 3 before WoD comes out. No one cares anyway.
