    Thanks :D

    I intended it to be used as an invulnerability spell like Divine Shield, and the brightness helps indicate that you can't attack the caster.

    Oh yeah its fairly obvious it's Divine Shield :) I just think the intensity/saturation is a little high, the Paladin gets lost in the particles, do those geosets have animations with color overlay? Maybe that's why, dunno...or im just crazy:)))

    Yup! She's a support in Heroes of the Storm (from Diablo universe) and can grant a crown on an ally.

    I just took that concept and pushed it farther.

    Well, holy shit. Now there's an old name... Wasn't aware you're still around. :)

    I'm not sure yet but I think I might enter this one. Question, can we separate our effect into a couple of models for the purpose of attaching different parts of it to different parts of the target model (e.g a buff that goes on Overhead and Right Hand, Left Hand?).

    OG's unite!

    The contest rules states we can decompose our SFX into separate pieces. It's what I am doing in mine as well.

    Not a requirement. Just like how death coil has a missile and impact. Depends on whether your SFX needs that.

    May we have another extension? I have this awesome concept in mind for the second FX but I would require more time. Frankly, I believe we all would love some additional time :)
