  • [Suggestion] On Hover, Show Remaining Buff Duration

    Hello,

    I have a simple suggestion that I feel would improve the hero UI. When you mouse over any buff/debuff on your status bar, it would be helpful if there were a simple countdown timer that appears at the bottom of the tooltip with the number of minutes and/or seconds remaining until it expires.

    While it is fairly easy to eyeball estimate the remaining duration for short buffs, it becomes quite a bit more difficult to do at a glance when dealing with longer buffs (e.g., Elder Dragon Form, Spell Steal, Double Damage, Flesh Golem, Ice Armor, Bloodlust, etc.). Knowing the duration of such buffs can influence gameplay decisions, including whether one should stay or fall back or whether one should gank or let be.

    Thanks for reading.
