It's hard to explain it and capture on pictures. Best visible live when using the mentioned abilities and I am sure number of sentinels/guardians got annoyed with the look of it from time to time.

Instead of leaving a smooth translucent trail like all other abilities (or a continuous trail) it gets all messy leaves the saber trail as if it was displayed frame by frame @ slow speed which results in ugly visuals (seen on pics). The glitched trail is also white, no matter the colour of blade and core.

Pictures here.

Nobody bothered by this thing?

Those two abilities look so different and leave really bad lightsaber trail, unlike the rest!

it's funny, I don't seem to remember it looking that bad tho the effects are so fast I may have missed it.
my wifi is borked atm... good enough to lurk the forums but not good enough to play... .
will check it out once I sort out the connection.

To add onto this.


Throwing a lightsaber never keeps to their color anymore its always a flash of white, yellow. and crap.

I'll give you comparison pictures with abilities that are leaving a nice smooth trail instead of "sticks of light separated from one another."
