Could relics be used to change skill colors?

Recommended Posts

Fact: Relics have an animation when they trigger (well, most of them)

Fact: Changing skill colors has been suggested before

Logic: If I put something on top of something else, I can't see what's under the top layer

Problem 1: Only works on explosions and flashes and auras (not a problem)

Problem 2: Some auras and shields are pretty transparent (I don't know how this game works when there are two transparent pixels both wanting to occupy the same place)

Problem 3: Skills whose duration increases when leveling them up (solution: limit this to only explosions and flashes)

Problem 4: This might be impossible on skills that are cast to the ground or on others; I don't really know how this game works

Problem 5: "That green puddle is safe, this green puddle is not... what does this disco death call even do?"


Anyway, fact-problem lists aside, my suggestion here is to add special relics to miracle shop/guild merchant/arena shop/bosses that change the color of the skill explosions/flashes/auras by sc. overwriting the original (they have a 100% chance to trigger).



[Crimson Dodge (Rogue)] - Changes the dodge activation flash to from light blue to red

[Purple Poison spittle (Necro)] - Changes the poison spittle explosion from green to purple

[Yellow Pool of Darkness (Warlock)] - You already know what this would do.


Also needs an NPC that sells the skills in their original color for 5g in every library.

Your point makes sense. There should be some improvements in this visual effects, particularly I think the designers should take care about that not being an optional thing.. otherwise it would mess things up even more. it's more like a correction than a privilege.
