    you have to fix this
    you decided to redesign some icons so you had the chance to diferentiate legendaries from uniques but you made them all look the same again

    Had to zoom in to find it.

    Background colors need to be more different.

    Increased drop of Leg items ... BUT ... the chance to get golden stats on exo items is below 0

    [​IMG]

    almost 85% of all exo items I have got today were without a single golden enchantment.

    Stuck at the start ... no movement skills are working.

    They said this release will be full of bugfixes, hopefully more bug getting fixed than plus bugs comes with it..
    Also this Unique/Leg item background colour reminds when i puked a bit of corn and lasagne.
    I just dont understand the point to make Uniques/Legs looking like the same..whatever the world not going to collapse because of that but seems a pointless change.

    In R215 is possible to get goblins from PW secret lairs?

    IMHO the fyrgon ring looks like tiara, the mortis ring looks like a mask instead of ring (the hole is unseen), the roshan belt looks like a bandana.

    in my opinion. no need to change the icons of unique things. the old icons are very pretty to look at, adding to the overall beauty and joy of the perception of the game. New icons look very corny and depressing. Why spoil something that's so good? ooh.

    Just leave the unique item icons yellow as they are now, and only change the legendary item icons to orange.

    That way the difference will be apparent and it would also be coherent with the yellow and orange sparkle when these items are dropped on the ground.

    Something like this:

    as W. Shakespeare said, in one of his works
    "striving for the better, we often spoil the good"
    why even change the icons of all things(ordinary, special, legendary, unique).
    they fit perfectly into the overall design of the game.
    and do not require any adjustments.

    Why are they even tampering with stuff that was of no problem? That item icon and background change is as unnecessary as it is simply stupid. Bring it out... We don't want it.

    Fix bugs... do not add new ones when you are adding nothing useful anyways.

    And, once again: listen to our feedback...

    I don't think the old icons are so perfect.
    The difference between unique and legendary is actually just as bad as in case of the new icons. Look:

    old icons [​IMG]

    new icons [​IMG]

    my icons [​IMG]

    Old icons are all yellow, new icons are all orange. Why?
    Let's respect the color of the sparkle effect when items are dropped.



    (Sorry for the smaller size of the old icons.)

    Why complaining?
    It is more than obvious unique and legendary item's icons are different. Unique items have one and a broken pixel wider frame :eek:

    Wait ... Dragan's Laser was not dealing correct damage? No way :rolleyes:
    They confirmed "it is not bugged"

    It is the dark color that makes it difficult for the human eye.
    Just like most people would have difficult time reading this line.
    Shadows and dark objects can't be seen on a dark background.
    On contrary ... even similar objects with similar color can be easily distinguished on a light background by adding shadows and thicker borders. The old black and white comic books are one perfect example.

    [​IMG]

    In the case of these new silly icons ... the art department has made one crucial error.
    They forgot these artistic objects won't be exhibited in The Museum of Modern Art ... but rather actively used in a very dynamic game environment.

    This concerns me. This concerns me a whole freaking lot! I know the TS doesn't always translate into what hits the live servers, especially when it's something good, but this is just the kind of thing the devs would sneak in there and not even include in the release notes.

    For all the downsides of the previous release, there were some improvements and I have been enjoying the game quite a bit lately. Due to the increased lines on exo items, even a low IQ, low skilled player such as myself could create some decent crafts. Note, I said decent, not perfect. But enough crafts to take me just a little bit further where I could farm where I previously could not. The path of progression is still slow but it at least became clear. Now it appears they are going to take that away from us? Just mentioning my displeasure at this surely makes the devs squeal with delight. I seriously hope this isn't coming to the live servers.

    Is there a problem showing certain items in my inventory?

    I thought everyone complained about how hard it was to tell if an item is legendary or unique, not what item it is. So I don't get why you talk about dark on dark. That is of course true, but are you saying that the new orange item design hinders your ability to tell what unique item you're looking at? I doubt it.
    In fact, the golden frame is more apparent against the darker orange background, so your visual art theory sort of talks against preserving the old design.

    The problem is clearly the difference between leg and unique, and the only difference has been and is going to be the golden frame. And that is not enough. Ain't nobody got time for looking at golden frames. A good thing would be to change the background color. Once the prevalent color, which is the background color, is different for different item rarities, it'll be much easier to quickly tell which one is which.

    The ideal way would be this:
    It looks like crap, but it would be super easy to tell leg from unique.

    [​IMG]

    That's why I support the new orange background for legendaries, and would like to only keep the yellow uniques.

    no one cares if the item is unique or leg ... everyone cares what item it is.
    With the R215 we have 2 issues
    1. making difference between leg and unique item
    2. Figuring out what item we are looking at.
    Players don't just stare for hours in the items ... that would be posers in The Museum of Modern Art. Players should decide in a split second what item they are looking at and what should they do with the item. Usually this is not a single decision but rather a long chain of actions that have to be dealt with in precise and accurate way without making a mistake ... while spending only several seconds per inventory page.

    BTW ... I quoted a part of your post in my previous post ... not because I disagree with something you said ... but it was a nice point to continue from while talking to the devs :) (oh yeah they are reading everything even if they never reply)

    Now ... that Roshan boot is a very good example ... of funeral uniques. XD

    It is just the initial version ... I hope it will change with the next versions.
    Oh ... the chance for golden enchantments is definitely not the same. I have played much more today and I am 100% positive now.

    So Trak tells everyone that gold lines are becoming rare and you guys fight and argue over what color icons are being used?

    I get it, once again the dev's are going out of their way to mess up something that no one has complained about, but instead of worrying about something that isn't slowing down character progress, we worry about something important like gold line drops going away.
