    Touch of Chaos: In need of new animation

    We are all familiar with the core Meta spell, which is Touch of Chaos.

    Given the mentality provided by the spec while playing, when we get into Meta, especially when we have Dark Soul on too, we are supposed to be absolutely destructive and chaotic. Yes, in terms of numbers we indeed are, however, when it comes to translating that into animated combat it is actually lacking.

    First of all, animation appears to be a leftover of a distorted melee animation. Although the colour appears to be nice, the whole feeling does not bring about either the "Touch of Chaos" sensation nor the devastating impulse provided by unleashing energy while in Meta. In fact, many of you are aware of the issue, yet I wanted to emphasize it and hear suggestions on your behalf.

    Yes and sound too..

    That spell has no visual and sound feedback at all.

    I dont mean big WOSHHHH but atlest a noticeable sound effect and visual

    I said some time ago in a post on the official forum (battle.net)
    "Now Demon Form looks like a launcher rays arcane or a madman who slaps the air
    "we can fight against the air"

    A new animation/skin of the Touch of Chaos would be appropriate"

    Rather than giving it to TOC that needs it, last PTR build changed Chaos wave anim where it was OKish and a ability that its basically useless all the time

    I vote for this. I could almost ignore the lack of a decent touch of chaos animation when meta melee was letting us pew out loads of mini shadowbolts. Now thats gone feels a bit lacking

    It's the same graphic, just a better animation.

    It should be green, it's a well known fact that Chaos is green

    Chaos Wave is something else, it had to go along with it. I'd rather have most of my green on destro as of 5.2

    Void Ray is the one that needs an animation update, I really have no idea what its hitting sometimes or if I even casted it.

    Chaos is bright pink.
    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.
