    Default Buffs effect not showing?

    Hello, I am new to the game and I was wondering, why do buff-effects not get shown when I highlight over them? They will show if I highlight a specific spot, but sometimes I just can't find that buff. I play a Mage-Warlock if that has to do with anything

    Welcome to Rift and Telara!

    To be able to give you an answer, I'm trying to understand what you mean - but I fail.... When do you want them 'shown'... do you mean that some of your abilities appear 'dark' in your bar and only light up when you target an enemy or a friendly player? Then it's conditional abilities ... (they don't work if the conditions aren't met) ... if it's anything else, please elaborate so we can help further...

    When I Highlight my mouse over the buff icon, it is completely normal, except for one thing.. The buff effect does not show.

    IE: When I highlight over a buff that might give +5% critical hit, it will not show/tell me it increases critical hit by 5%, nothing will pop up so it doesn't inform me the 5% crit.

    It sounds like you are looking for "tooltips", which if I'm not mistaken should be enabled by default.

    However if you press "ESC" -> "Edit Layout" and then find the tooltip anchor, check so it's not red which indicates that it's disabled. From here you can also drag it to a place and change the size of it that might suit you better.

    Some buffs are not on your target, but on your character, especially ones that add %crit to your attacks.

    Also, there are check boxes in the interface menu for adding or removing the visibility of buffs on targets. You may have changed one of those or you may wish to do so.

    Buffs effect not showing?-2014-01-19_161841.jpg

    Now see those buffs that have 50 mins left and such? And the track plants?

    When I highlight over those buffs with my mouse, they do not show what they do.
    So it should (I think) say "Tracking Plants" when I highlight over the Track plants icon, but it does not. Anyone know why?

    If he was targeting someone else, I could highlight their buffs and they would show what they do.

    Overlapping UI elements does that. Check how big the elements actually are in edit layout mode, invisible parts and currently inactive elements can still sometimes do this.

    So you mean that if you hover the mouse pointer over either your own buffs (right top of screen) or the buffs of another player/NPC, you don't get the tooltips for them (explaining what they do) ... like 'Track plants' with below it 'Shows the location of all Plants on the minimap' (like I have it on my harvester)... Is that correct? I've been looking around the UI and haven't found an option to turn tooltips off like it seems to have happened to you ...

    You might have some big UI element which is hidden in warfronts on top of them, check the Menu -> Edit Layout that there are no other UI elements on top of the buff bar.

    I would reset your UI to default if I were you, I've looked around just as Faerugue did and I can't find any place where you can turn off your tooltip like you describe.
