RA - The slowest animation in the game!

The first time you watch Ra walk out and pose, it's pretty cool

The 50th time you sit and watch while he poses slowly and burns each target one at a time, it's tedious

After that, when you see Ra, you wince and find something else to do till he gets finished.

Can something PLEASE be done to speed him up? Maybe have him pose once then just move around the circle to show a blast of light on each target instead of showing him all over again each time or something?

I agree, but I still believe Forest Lord and Enraged Forest Lord are the slowest.

They don't take anymore time that Snow Angel or Leviathan, or Storm Lord for that matter.

I like the animations when I cast Ra or Forest Lord. They're nifty to watch every time, IMHO :)

It can be a little boring once of you seen it before like however many times but, there are other low level wizards that havent really seen it, you know if your at the arena or in a lower level area and use it. And the lower level wizards go Oh thats so coool!! So while it can be a little hard to watch over and over there are some people that really want to see all of it.

Couldn't agree more!

I was about to post something myself about it actually. I just got level 60 on my balance recently and I can't stand the spell, it should lift up the staff and let the sun go through the magnifying glass just once then move around like all other spells do.

I also agree that Forest Lord is a little too long with the animation before but this is ok because it only does it once every time you hit, not 4 times!

I agree. I use nova blast more than Ra partly because of how long Ra takes, partly cause it adds weakness on the enemies. sometimes i wish i could run off and do a pet game or something while Ra is doing his thing. same with forest lord. -corwin sandstalker, legendary sorcerer

I was thinking the same thing the tenth time I saw it. Maybe it could be sped up a little. Link, a fire spell, has slowed down quite a bit and has come to annoy me lately with minion always casting it.

Leviathan and Storm Lord are way faster.

No, Ra is a little longer, and besides, at least there is some action going on in forest lord rather than watching a man-eagle take 5 seconds to pose then 5 more seconds to flambe each enemy at a time.
