    I am sick and tired of these icons cluttering the bottom of the screen. We know we have a pet we know we are in a group. We know we are on buffs, we know we are wearing a costume!!!!!!!!
    There is so much garbage on the bottom of the screen you can't even play that direction.

    Make all those icons a collapsible window!!!!! Just like you have the PVP time window collapsible. Just like You have the PVE LB window collapsible. Just like you have the group window collapsible..

    You are making the game more annoying and frustrating then it needs to be.

    I have no idea how many times I died or my skills failed to execute because I was hovering over the mass of icons cluttering my screen. A lot of the relatively static and obviously visible things like costumes, premium, mount, and pet really should be removed from that bar altogether. Combat related effects like the various set bonus effects that proc under specific conditions should be the only things shown.

    Or they could make it highly customizable, with options to choose what to show and what not to. Well, knowing them, asking for a complex solution would be too much, but actually an option like collapse[none, static, all] could be made... but it would have to be carefully thought it out. It can't be, for example, "collapse everything longer than 2h", because that would collapse Q6 set's buff, which has no duration set.

    I have a feeling that asking for that would be nearly impossible or take a very long time. (Just think of all the other UI requests we've made over the years.)

    The other thing they could try is make it so it's visible at all times like now, but your cursor just passes through it as if it's not there because it's on a different "layer." The only way to trigger the tooltip to see what each icon is to push a button (eg. Ctrl) and hover. Otherwise it is there to provide info without interfering with walking or skills.

    How about having the "constant" ones shrink down (to 1/4 size) to the lower left corner and come back up while toon holds the "show everything" button?

    Only the short term battle ones pop up where they are now.

    I would prefer them gone period. But if Bigpoint isn't gonna do that. Then I like Silverseas idea.. You have to hold down the control key to activate them.
