"On the subject of "hand-holding", there is an option to disable the Loss of Control UI. Just uncheck the box titled Loss of Control Alerts in the Combat section of the Interface menu."
Are you kidding me? A huge problem of the Loss of Control Alerts is that regardless of enabled/disabled you can't see your CD's. He realizes that at the bottom when its brought to his attention and says, "I'll pass that info on". But nothing about how his previous, patronizing comment was incorrect. (Because you can't disable the entire alert system"
Makes me mad.
