Known Issues?

  • Some skills may be visible in the visualizer but will not be cast during combat, these are not implemented.
  • The skill visualizer may take some time to show on the first load due to it collecting the skill images from the render service.
  • Windows may appear to be quite large when they are shown for the first time, resize them to your needs and they will retain their position and size.
  • Largest cluster targeting is mostly laggy and unreliable.
