When battling Optio Verdis and Celestian Remnant (Balance NPCs), it can be difficult to recognize what has been placed around the NPC in the current state of stacking non-identical items on top of each other. Many Balance NPCs will use their two different combo shields again and again, so that there are layers of shields with a wizard's traps mixed in.
It would be helpful if identical items would be stacked on each other with a number imposed on the item showing how many remain. This number could be similar to that used by Fortify and Amplify.
This would benefit wizards that battle in a group, so that better planning could take place and perhaps limiting frustration concerning failed or diminished attacks due to items hidden under non-identical items that now are revealed due to another wizard’s action during that particular round.
So that the numbers would be visible, a reduction in the speed at which the items revolve around the NPC may be necessary.
This could also be applied to wizards in the same way.
