    Add the motion lines back into force staff

    They were removed in today's update, why? They looked cool and were actually suggestive of the item's purpose

    They're still there, just not as apparent.

    They were too flashy, degraded the silhouette and made the icon busier.
    The toned down version is much better.

    The old 8 pointed arrow circle was pretty cool

    Force Staff - I like the design of the new icon, but it has a disadvantage in terms of functionality. With the old icon, you could take a quick glance and instantly recognize what it is, but it had such a rudimentary design. With this new icon, the "speed lines" effect (which I assume is there to indicate the function of the item) in the background seems to add noise to the item image, though it looks much better aesthetically. Over time, it will likely be easy to recognize the new icon, but I believe this icon will continue to be further improved. Perhaps alter the speed lines in a way that it doesn't affect the ability to instantly recognize the item.

    I listed the pros/cons of the new icon set here

    I don't really see how the newer, toned-down speed lines are noisy at all. The item silhouette is very clear, and in-game you would only see the speed lines if you were hovering over the icon for the larger view.

    This. Maybe a middle between these two would be good?
