Cool Unnecessary/Disturbing Visual Effects

There should really be something done about all the visual effects that clutter the middle of screen. No matter what char u are nothing is understandable even if there is no fight.

Every SINGLE effect looks actually good, but it ALONE. When they all get togheter, and they will cause u get to ulti and u only play there, they overlap eachother and create white collor everywhere, even with postproces off.

For start maiven's sphere of protection could be at least 50% more transparent if not 75%, it just needs to be there so i can barely see it, it make the char look like a ball rolling around the screen, even with post process off.

Whirling Blades - alsi 75% more tranparency and 50% less blades. only the upper part of char is visible.

AND OFC - POTIONS ! PLEASE REMOVE EVERY SINGLE POTION EFFECT IN GAME ! I for one think it's enough to see them above the quick slot bar, they are potions...not auras...they make a ring around the char making the game look funny, childish...

Also icons on top of the quickslot bar could closer one to another so more fit in one line.

A lot of item skins actually look very nice, and a lot of auras/potions/etc on char look very disturbing to look at when they all togheter.

Also the whiteness in spells could use 99.99% reduction in brightness....specially for arcane harmony set...and a lot of other spells.

Everything in game, INDIVIDUALLY, looks good, very good, but all at once not good....not good..

I use 1 of each potion i have in inv when ever i fight nemesis, celestials, bosses etc...and they remain for 450-900sec after...
And i only had 10 in the pic, there are 50 in total, or more, and almost all of them have good bonuses, that deserve using them as long as u have them.

Alright mentos, don't turn back to become Sir Bitchalot. This isn't New Vegas where you can take Logan's loophole.
