I personally like the new spell effects. No wait, I LOVE them.
I have heard that most necro's hate them, but I know of only one, and he's only associated with me because he's married to my in-game sister. Oh well, you can't please 'em all, I'm just glad I like the effects. =)

I wish I could even see the new effects. I tried to log in for the first time in a month to take a look at them, and the game dies just as it ought to be loading the character screen. Anyone else had problems since the spell graphics patch?

Come on, you can't possibly look at that picture and say that looks like fire. It's a red line! And: Root = no effect. Lull = no effect. The old fire spell looked like fire, it actually.. had... flames... now it's a red.. line...
root looks like blackish brown tendrils coming out of the ground around your target...lull is a blue haze with a helix swirling up around your target. i'll agree though that i thought the old fire spells looked more like fire though.
apparently, some of the graphics didn't make it over to live or something, so there was another patch this morning. lull and stuff should work; if not, do the testeverquest.exe patcher, and that'll download all the right spell effects.

yeah root snare lull and mez weren't working for me when i went on last night to see them.
But, other then that, i think most of the effects are pretty sweet. Though 50% of them just look like a slightly different version of the Virtue/Temperance spell effects, most look pretty cool. Besides i like the virtue spell effects anyway
I think the port spells and heal spells are my favorites though.
That looks nothing like fire, and everything like some sort of evil, like how they did Harm (the most evil spell evar!) in NWN. Heal (100% hp ) is a big blue immersing shine from heaven, whereas harm (- all but 1d4 hps) is a big red shine from heaven.
The new fire affects really looks like the old poison/desiease affects with the white/orange cracked out. They have once again broken bolt spells, several Shock lines of spells were not upgraded, the new conjurtaion type affects now appear in front of the caster which looks kinda dumb, etc... Many of the new affects were jsut fleshed out old affects. I remember seeing one of the older SoW affects that actually had a wolf's head form over the target... THAT would have been cool.
When it comes to you versus the world, bet on the world.
