We've just released the Illusionist Weapon Effect. In addition to leaving a blue trail with orange particles, this microtransaction adds a beautiful glass-like effect to your weapon, making it transparent from time to time. Check out the video below or click here to get yours now.



The Illusionist Weapon Effect is the first cosmetic effect designed in the Illusionist theme. We'll continue to release other Illusionist microtransactions over the next few days. In the meantime, we'd recommend using this weapon effect with the Stygian Armour Set and the Mana Wyrm Wings.



Thank you for your support!

Agreed. This is why we have a 'weapon skin' slot *and* a 'weapon effect' slot. There's no real reason to blend the two.

And from a personal standpoint, I think the trails are a bit out of control. Weapon trails when you attack look great; when they're up constantly, even just running around, it just looks ridiculous. Imagine how stupid lightsabers would look in the movies if they did this. The occasional light trail is very effective -- see Akira's bike lights, for example. Doing it all the time? You might as well be JJ Abrams with the constant lens flare.

As a chronic altaholic and thematic customiser, I'd be much happier with simpler recolours and swing-only trails, or at least a decent amplification of stuff like crimson, azure, emerald and lavender. I rarely use the eye-bleedingly overcooked shit like Abyssal Imp, Pitfighter or Pestilence. Design rule of thumb: if you can't even see the skin anymore, the effect is overdone.

Less is more, TencentGGG. Less is more.
The willpower required to enjoy something for what it is far outweighs the frustration you'll experience trying to change it.

Theres shitload of just "effects" for weapons which do not change basic appearance, as long as theres a choice you should be fine ;)
