Topic Thank you for Healing Tide Totem, but...
I have always thought that WoW is a great looking game in terms of its environments, but the graphics associated with its combat is a little lackluster.
It is not just the new Healing Tide totem, most spells/melee/ranged attacks don't seems to give you that visual cue that you've just done something that screams "POWAH!".
This might have something to do with the need to support a wide variety of computer hardware configuration. Not every WoW player will be equipped with a powerful graphics card that cost as much as a new PC, so if they amp up the graphics, it'll most likely result in troubles for many WoW players playing on lower end computers.
