It's worse than I thought.

Because of these changes:

  • Health, Magicka and Stamina information for both friendlies and enemies is restricted.
  • Cast-bars are completely gone, both from you and the enemies.

There won't be any useful healing addons for healers to use in a group.

I think there will be some compromise as the game moves forward.  If not, addons can still provide a lot of convenience features.

there are many good addons. i personally like to autoloot so i like the addon that shows the loot in my chat.. also i like the addon that lets me track more than one quest at a time .. that annoyed me.

Not happy with this at all. Not being able to track your on buffs/debuffs is taking a step backward in game design really. THis is almost pre-MMO stuff in UI information.

i understand it though .. they are trying to balance creation of a MMO without losing the elder scrolls UI of the single player games and the clean screen look. its the reason you cant have 200 hotkey bars.

Yes, i understand it too. I like that i am almost being forced into the immersion of the game, and not lines and numbers in a HUD.

I welcome the restrictions. I mean it adds mystery to the game allowing for more just playing the game instead of hyper analyzing the game down to the last millisecond. WoW got so overly technical it was ridiculous and it introduced in my opinion an elitist and exclusionary form of gaming.

But the think is... you COULD track you own buffs, it wasn't till Skyrim that the UI didn't have some sort of buff tracking timer. So this is still a step backwards even for a ES minimal UI.

Doing dungeons and raids was fun in Rift until the point when you where required to have mods telling you what to do every step of the way.
