  • Action Bar Cooldown Legibility

    Right now its a little hard to read due to the color of the font being white and some ability art using alot of white - it would be a good idea to have an outline around the digits to make it a bit more legible.

    I've attached a screenshot as an example.

                in some way dimming the color of the ability while it is on CD would be nice as well.

                  The black-stroke is alot better than plan white and nice job on the mockup.

                    Also, the animation of the cooldown timer should be darker imo, there isn't enough contrast for a passing glance.

                      Agreed^10

                      So annoying not knowing if you can cast or not

                              Reducing the contrast of the icon during cooldown will do actually.
