    • Party Finder

      Having a big tab stick off the right side of the screen telling you to select a role is obnoxious. This in and of itself is reason to not use the party finder. There is 0 reason to have someone select their role here. Just none. This popout actually serves no purpose at all ot her than to be in the way for the purpose of impeding visibility. Why is it here? Does the person who put it here even know why it was put here? It just needs to be removed.
    • Hi @Raithe,

      actually this HUD-element serves a very important purpose. If you are already in a party and looking for additional partymembers, only the leader of your party has access to the party finder functionality. Therefore, the element is where all other party members can select their roles and update their equipped gear.

      Also, we are aware that the party finder in its current form is not perfect and are planning changes for future updates.

      yes but what he meant is, that you can change the role already. And its just to big so one button where you can update your gear would be enought :)

      This is actually one of the reasons why we don't use the Party Finder in my guild - despite nearly all of us being in a party constantly.

      There is no reason at all for the selection-window to be on the main screen, IMHO.

      No actually I mean....rather or not you need to be able to select roles does not make it necessary t o have large box with this this stuff sticking out from one side of the screen blocking your view. This is a switch that can literally go anywhere. And when you are in a party this exact same function is indeed somewhere else. Its very unattractive and it impedes vision. I specifically would not ever use the party find just becaause of this layout. You could put it in the party finder window. That is all necessary functions for the party finder and it is not in an ugly box sticking off the side of the screen. I can think of many other places to put this so. Pretty much anywhere not in a box poking out into the field of view would have been ok.
