    We need Buttons! Anyone who can help out, bless you!!!!
    Buttons for? Skills, Spells, and Potions!

    What are these buttons you ask? Look at this image:

    [​IMG]

    I'll have Siegfre post the actual UI of this so we can create buttons that fit.

    See the lower portion to the left? The blank hexagons? This is where skills, spells, and inventory go. If anyone wants to help out making these buttons, BLLEEESSS YOOOUUU.

    Here is another game's examples of weapon skills and spells:
    http://images.vg247.com/current//2013/04/Final-Fantasy-XIV-beta-10.jpg

    Some buttons we need to start off for spells, so our wavemasters can actually do something:
    Each element has three different types of spells...each of those with different potencies. For now though, we only need to focus on 3 of each element.
    Drop spells, Tornado Spells, and Coverage spells...much like .hack.

    For example...Fire:
    Meteors, Fire Tornado, Flame engulfs from various angles
    Darkness
    Bat shadows attack, a dark swirl, and the iconic evil hand!

    As for Abilities, we don't have it perfectly set but basically they're easy to do. They're just simply icons that should look like their roles.

    For example Knights would have shield related icons....Berserkers an axe or angry looking icon...Lancers AoE or speed...Runecaster hunter like ones...wavemaster...mind like ones...thief...treasure like ones.
    Be creative!

    So in short:

    3 for each Element (or just one each for now)
    Oh, duh, a cure spell!
    1-2 for each Class
    Potions

    We can worry about buff and debuff spells later
    We have some generic icons atm, but it would be fantastic to have our own so it looks better.

    Thank you so much!

    Why don't you guys make a set of basic-style icons that fit with the GUI? What this calls for is someone who can do artwork, but what if you did something like:

    Like, instead of having to take time to push out individual artwork for buttons, make a few general buttons for the types of skill for each element and weapon and just edit them when new items are added? Like, instead of meteor artwork, you can do a white silhouette of meteors, etc. same with swords, the different styles and classes of armor, etc.?

    Maybe you could make one or two of the slots for consumable items? So you can hotkey them, and use them in battle more effectively, rather than having to search through your inventory.

    Thats what the buttons are for. You can place an inventory item such as a potion on the hotbar for easier use.

    Well they aren't going use all those spaces right? Or did you mean you needed ideas for the buttons? Or just designs?
    I'm not smart ok? ;_;

    Designs and the actual buttons as we dont have an artist who can make good ones.
    Those spaces are for spells, skills, and items that you can customize.

    Are you looking for each button? Could you add a list of all the skills along with their description? I may not be able to help that much but for others this will give them a idea of how to build the image.

    Yeah, the dimensions would be good. I can take a stab at what I suggested.

    Lol, I think we need to know what kind of abilities there are first, though?

    But yeah, here's a swing at one. I dont do well with artwork, but I can try to manipulate Brush templates into buttons.

    [​IMG]

    It could be some kind of wave ability to steal HP from your enemy or something... i dunno. It's a moon with energy draining into it. Not sure how many specific ones I'd be able to do, since MMO artwork isn't my thing, but I can give a crack at it?

    Also, here's a hot bar with all the submissions given so far to see how they'd look on the Hot key bar.
