  • [Suggestion] Invisibility Cooldown for Bounty Hunter (And For Similar Skills)

    It's just a little thing, but sometimes I'd like to know how much longer I'm going to be invisible. The cooldown for the skill is shorter than the duration of the invisibility, and I tend to refresh the invisibility sooner than I have to because I can't tell when I will run out of invisibility.

    I'm sure there are a bunch of other duration-type skills that could benefit slightly from a visible timer, this is just the one I've been thinking about.

    Edit: Turns out there already is an indicator, thanks for pointing out the border timer

    or you can just read, cause the skill tells you the cooldown and the duration, so when you see your skill has a 20 second durationand a 15 second cooldown, you know that if its off cooldown, you have less then 5 seconds to refresh it.

        Now I might be crazy, but I thought the green border around the invis icon started full of green and slowly disappeared clockwise. It gives a pretty good indicator of how long is left

        Or am I confusing it with something else?

          It just feels obtuse to have to count the five seconds manually, when a little timer could be implemented easily. Plus, I usually have other things to focus on than counting the seconds left.

          I'll definitely check this my next match, but I actually think that the border timer is just another cool-down indication and not an indication of the ability effect duration. Can't say for sure right now, though.

            There already is an indicator. On the buff, the border starts out green, and winds around the buff icon clockwise, leaving a darker green border. This bright green is the timer; once it reaches the top again your invisibility will run out.
