Dear Mythic, please fix the new renown training window.
I know 1.4 isn’t live yet and everything is subject to change, but it’s 2 days away so I’m a bit worried. While the renown rewards overhaul might look good, the window itself doesn’t. It’s confusing and makes spending, resetting points and planning ahead very cumbersome. With an interface like that a community renown speccing template might be needed just to make planning ahead viable. Here’s how the current and the new interfaces looks like:
You can see that while the current one isn’t a work of art, it’s functional and practical. The new one is basically the skill training window with renown abilities instead of career abilities. It might work for training core abilities, but it doesn’t work for something as complicated as the renown training. Now here’s what I propose you change the renown window to (and a layout design for a possible community tool in case you don’t):
It would work like the current renown training window. You spend points in a skill by left clicking on it, undo the change by right clicking and when you are happy with the layout you press train to save it and actually spend your points. A counter telling you how many points you have and how many you’ve already spent would be handy. I’m sure that a small change like this won’t take a lot of time, but it will make spending renown points much easier and improve the renown change as a whole.
