Diablo® III

Missing Effects

I just noticed this when i play on another pc, whenever i cast energy armor my wiz is surrounded by this shimmering shield, which i assume is the armor.

On my own pc, whenever i cast energy armor, i only see a small effect on top of my head, like one from getting a shrine bonus.

i soon noticed that when an elite has a shielded affix, there is really a shield, when i play on my own pc, there is no shield.

my video card satisfies the recommended requirement of d3. so is this a video card problem o am i missing out on some video options?
