As the tittle states, putting aside all of the moaning about the revamp and all that, just wanted to mention a few things I'm very much appreciating right now. The Phoenix Material: I don't think I'm hallucinating, but it appears it has been toned down just a notch or two. It doesn't bloom obnoxiously, so now people who are covered in the material from head to toe don't look gaudy anymore. And when used sparingly it looks even better. The Dark Flame Aura: Absolutely love the way it looks. The animation is awesome and so is the color. I'm hoping that maybe there's an Aura pack in the near future with color variants of the Dark Flame aura (particularly red and dark orange). I'm loving the textures on the new gear styles (even if it doesn't always match well with older styles). I'm glad this is the trend going forward with all gear styles. I love the new or enhanced power animations. Now older powersets look extra sharp instead of lagging behind the newer flashier powersets. And speaking of animations, after seeing some of Water's new animations and gestures, I'm hoping a few here and there might make their way onto old powersets as time permits. I also like what they did with staff and its new AoE range attack...very nicely done. Recent Base Items: That Aquaman bust is incredible. Not to sound ungrateful, but I wish we had gotten a Mera bust either as a set or as the alternative (Makes more sense with Water coming out and being more based on her than old Arthur Curry). The comic cover posters are phenomenal. I just thought I'd share my appreciation of these recent visual additions, let the Devs know it hasn't gone unnoticed. It's way too easy to take these niceties for granted when people are hyper-focused on what's wrong (not saying they aren't valid concerns...so by all means keep up the good fight to get things fixed).
