"Whirlwind" proposital effect?

When the barbarian uses whirlwind, there is swords and axes spinning too ! Even if the barb are using a hammer.

Nobody on this forum is going to know what proposital effect means without using google.


I guess it is a good thing that everyone on these forums have access to google isn't it?

This thread is the first result for "Proposital Effect" on Google.

General Discussion is the second result.

It's amazing how quickly google updates it's search results isn't it?

Basically it means it is a deliberate effect. Something that was done specifically for one reason or another.

The thing about Proposital Effect is they are often not. Customers will read into them that, but more often than not they are the result of budget and time constraints. The dev and art team just doesn't have the budget or time to implement alternate visuals for abilities. Not to mention it can often bloat the program making it perform more checks than necessary (Check what weapon the char is holding, if it has an alternate visual for the skill used etc.)
