Faster "effect" text

I really have an issue right now with my SW: it's impossible to kill fast (in terms of real life time). This is due to "poisoned" appearing after almost every attack, and it prevents me from quickly dumping my energy. The difference with my mage is really big, and that means less RPP for my SW, with raids currently going fast everywhere.

I'd suggest to disable the text after some level, or give us an option to disable it. After all, the text will be informative at the beginning but after the small debuff icon on the opponent is enough to tell you whether poison was applied or not. The extra time spent by deep freeze (even just the slow) is also too much in my opinion.

PS: I think doc love had a linked complaint:

It's bad enough that it takes more hits to kill things now and I take more damage, but for all the extra game "animations" to slow things down even further is really annoying. I need to be able to come in, drop my energy, and get back to not working, and do it quickly.

I second this comment! So well thought out!

But seriously, I dropped all bleed passives on my justicar solely for the reason that they were taking way too much real life time to apply. Now that the bleeds are being fixed, I would like to try them again, but not at the expense of significantly extending real life battle times.

I suggest giving us the option to toggle off the text displays as Romain mentioned. Give us an option in the game settings, similar to turning off the helmet display.

Back when this was primarily a shadow walker concern, I didn't support this idea, because one class would have reaped most of the benefits. With all classes now being affected by these slowdowns, I agree.

Yup, I second this idea. Would save a lot of time!

Either disable the text or allow faster pop up or remain the same but allow us to use skills while text pops up
