    I strongly agree with OP. Having range circles/cones displayed is something that I've wanted ever since Beta of 1.0. However, it never came.
    As it was mentioned before, for instant skills/spells, simply hovering over the skill icon should display the range circle/cone.

    As for hardcore players that "dislike being spoon-fed", simply turn it off in the config menu as it would need to be a client-side visual aid.

    One more thing, the spells and skills, as it was mentioned, should definitely be displayed as wide half-spheres like we see in the videos. A simply copy-paste of the individual animation in front of everyone is probably the lamest AoE skill/spell effect I've ever seen. Especially in an MMO, visual is extremely important this should be part of it.

    The devs are doing a great job and I hope Yoshi-P & cie have thought of it already and it is in motion of becoming reality. ^^

    I am officially AGAINST any form of cash shop whatsoever (always been).
    Don't fall into that trap SE! No cash shop and everything available in-game was a strength of this MMORPG.

    would be good if this was also visible by party members so they know to get inside of a certain area for a buff.

    I hate when they easy-mode crap in MMOs and I don't see how this is spoon feeding. A character that knows how to cast a spell should know how big the spell is. Simple as that. If they don't want to add AOE makers they should at least put the Radius on the tool tip.

    Personally, I want the markers because i think the rune idea in the OP would look wicked cool.

    I really like that idea that everyone seems to be bringing up making these ae markers visible to party members but if that is the case it should ONLY be visible to Party / Raid members in case it causes small hang ups.

    I think if they updated the spell effects to indicate the area over which the AoE has an effect, then that would suffice, and an AoE indicator would not be necessary.

    The stupid thing in 1.0, and probably 2.0, is that when you cast something, the animation effect only activates on the mob you attack. So you cannot even really practice gauging the range from casting it and observing the distance. You can't cast Firaga and see the range. If they changed this (where for example the Firaga animation effect would extend in a circle around the targeted mob representing its area of effect), then it would make learning your AoE range a much more organic process, and negate the need for the aoe indicator.

    I mean, if you watch this video, you can clearly see an indication of the AoE. Learning the distance for each spell would then become a natural process, and a display marker would become somewhat redundant. In FFXIV, you can't really learn the AoE distances, because there's no visual display for most of them.

    Happy Friday everyone!

    In A Realm Reborn we will be implementing a system for raid dungeon bosses and other big baddies where an AoE range display will be shown as they are charging up to perform their attacks, and after a couple of seconds everything in range will be hit (hint: MOVE!). Similar to the suggestions in this thread, it is very possible to have the same kind of system for players in the future, so the development team will keep this in mind.

    As an aside, in A Realm Reborn the buffing range is extremely wide and has been set to 40m, so if you are in a dungeon you will be able to cast the spells on all party members easily, so no more players getting out of range of Stoneskin and other enhancements
