Countdown not showing up?

Dec 17, 2010
So I was questing on my Storm wizard in the Plaza of Conquests when I noticed that the countdown disappears after I select my spell in combat. This happened in every battle, not just once. I can still hear the countdown (when there are less than 10 seconds left) but I can't see it. Is this intentional? Has it always been this way?

Also, just a side note, am I the only person who thought that "The Tower Archives" was called "The Tower of Archives"? I just noticed that yesterday and it blew my mind.

Ah, I have seen many of these today. I have posted in many locations about this, including Wizard101 Central. As I told everyone else, take many screenshots of this issue in many different places in the spiral. This will prove it happens everywhere, not limited to a certain world due to post-update. This began to happen to me after the spring update (Monstrology). When I emailed Kingsisle, they blamed my graphics card, which is high-end and already up-to-date. I suggest finding others with this issue and I also suggest emailing Kingsisle! It will only do good if many people rise up about this problem!
