Where is the Damage Monitor? I want to know what’s killing me…

29 June 2012 - 04:50 AM

This is by far the biggest complaint I have with the combat system UI… it doesn’t tell me what skill is attacking me on screen. I hope they bring back the GW1 damage monitor… we don’t have the casting bar anymore and that’s fine, but knowing who and what I’m dealing with is IMO important in my skill choices… Sometimes I get a bunch of red numbers popping up, and I should be able to tell in the heat of combat if it’s just someone spamming weak attacks OR a group of 5 focusing fire on me. Right now all you can see is just a barrage of red numbers that you can’t even read sometimes…  

I found this to be especially problematic in WvW using ballista (and probably some other siege weapons too), anyone that has used this knows how powerful this is… but for the person on the receiving end you essentially have NO indication that you got hit by one of these unless you looked for it, because its basically just an arrow that travels at 200mph that takes out ½ of your health, then you are dead and no explanation is really given…. I mean I think you would know if you got hit by a bolt the size of a great sword

^why cant we have this?
