Doom's Infernal Blade should enable particle effect just like Kunkka's Tidebringer.

    Just small visual change that would change the particle effect on doom sword.

    I suggest it to be lit on fire only when Infernal Blade is off cooldown. This is how it looks right now:

    And how it works on Kunkka:

    BTW small thing that I have noticed after taking those screenshots, the fountain and tower armor auras swapped their positions for some reason.

    Great idea! Really simple, but useful. Screenshots made it easy to understand, too: nice one.

    t-up on concept. In a way abit of a nerf to him as enemies now know if it is no cooldown or not but nevermind

    Jakiro has a visual indicator for liquid fire too, he drools lava or something.
    Maybe Tusk should have a visual effect too, but that'd be a big nerf considering it's his ultimate.
    The visual indicator is a trait shared by only two autocast abilities with cooldowns, and there are only 4 of thos so I wouldn't say it's the norm, but it does look pretty cool.

    Definite T-up.

    But it already has flames. :eek:

    I'd rather it didn't have flames when off, similar to how Tidebringer doesn't drip water when turned off but that's just me.

    Great idea nonetheless. T-up! :D

    Certainly T-Up here as well. I hope they could do this change.
