I wasn't sure how to accurately title my suggestion, so right into the idea I had for a long, long while!
It's not something I think matters for most players.
It is most likely an issue I have in my brain, whenever I
train my skills I like seeing the progress bar in the skill window get filled.
Sometimes I train a lot and I want to continue without seeing the bar, then, see it again and look at how much the bar got filled. It's satisfying!
The actual issue is the fact that I always close the skill window when I'm done checking.
Most skills are at the end of the list, I check quite a lot, it's getting quite annoying to always having to scroll down in order to find the skill once again.
Anyway, my idea was to have another progress bars under the skills icons. More details after the images:
The progress bars under the skills would look like this:
As you can see the progress is at some bars filled, while not in others. Some are with the pink color, etc. Just like it would be in the actual skill window.
The black button
at the right was made for the moments where I want to surprise myself and see how much the bar got filled after a few times doing the same method. ( Or in other words, to show the progress bars or hide them. )
The design was simple;
I took the same bar and colors we all love and know the meanings of from the progress bars in the skill window, then
I cut it a bit to make it smaller, then, I just placed it there. Lookin' good.
In the actual game it would look like this:
It doesn't bother the eye, and it's mostly useful for players like me!
It blends well with the fact that you can see all the information of the skill
the mouse is on.
-The skill window will still have the same use obviously! ( Advancing, etc. )
-I decided to keep the upper skill bar without the progress bars, it's just not that nice to look at too many of these bars.
And that's basically it! I'd love to have this.
The number of times bar was written: 14
