    I bought the Huldufolk armour having no idea it has this really annoying smoking effect. The armour cost 120 opals and now that I've bought it I cant get rid of it. I went back 4 saves and it's still there and now feel those opals were completely wasted.

    I love the armour but the smoking effect is super distracting. Please give us the option to disable these effects.

    Thank you!

    @FillyFae Thank you for the feedback, we're sorry to hear you're not liking the effects on that set.

    Opal purchases cannot be reversed, they are permanent once made and are then on the account.

    We can certainly pass your feedback around this effect to the team.

    @ubi-baron I 100% agree. Very odd effect. So many other wonderful customization options to increase immersement, and then this weird sputtering smoke. Please allow armor FX to be disabled.

    Yes please! I haven't purchased the armor because I noticed it had that smoke effect. It looks absolutely wonderful, but I don't want any immersion breaking effects to ruin cutscenes. Which is the biggest complaint most players have about the armor. Please consider adding an option that removes armor visual effects.

    @ubi-baron Yes please pass this message along! This armour set is incredible, but I really regret getting it now and wish I could get my opals and helix credits back. Some players might like it, but for me it just breaks the immersion.

    Edit:
    Here’s some other people on reddit who also dislike the vfx:

    @ubi-baron yes, please let us disable the effect! I bought the armor in the store a couple days after launch without noticing the effect and haven’t touched it since I did. Which is really annoying, since I paid real money for it and it looks absolutely awesome if it wasn’t smoking/steaming/whatever that’s supposed to be.

    i think the shop is very poorly made, they wont even allow you a preview to see what you would actually from your opals.

    same problem when changing your horse at the stables or your ship, you cant turn anything around and in those previews its basically pitch dark as well

    The smoke effect really kills it for me too. Shame because it's the best looking armor in the game. Maybe the smoke should be only visible when the bonus effects are active?

    this was the case for sets in Odyssey.

    But as with everything valhalla really want to leap backwards instead of forwards.

    Anyone hear anything on if we will get this option. Literally bought the set today not realizing it had that effect on it. Totally immersion breaking, annoying I just spend real money on it and cant use it cause the smoke is soo distracting and pointless. Needs to be turned off!

    @Ubi-Baron any word on if this is beinf addressed yet? Would love to use the set. Since I paid with real money but the smoke just ruins it for me. Need an option to turn it off. Pointless and distracting

    Same feelings here, bought the set some time ago, still didn't use it just because of this effect. It would be awesome to able the toggle this off!

    Hey thanks! I hadn't logged back in here so didn't realize I have gotten responses.

    I found out very recently your team has removed the smoke effect and it's absolutely awesome. I've seen many others on Twitter also pleased with the removal.

    Thank you very much!!

    Sorry for such a late response but agreed. Even being able to turn the items fully around would be a huge improvement. And yeah it's too dark, especially the new transmorg menu. You can barely see anything!

    The smoke effect is so frustrating. I bought the set when the effect wasn't visible, but with the most recent patch it's appeared. So I bought one set of armour and have ended up with another that's unusable because it completely breaks immersion during cut scenes/story.

    @ubi-baron as many people have already outlined in this post. This issue is back after being rectified. The armour effects are super annoying. Can we please have the removed again or have the options to toggle them. Completely ruins the Huldufolk armour.

    Thanks!

    I'm one of those people on Reddit complaining about this. Was super excited to see the fix, then thought I was losing my mind when I launched the game to see it back. Please please please please please remove the smoke effects on armor. Very disappointed that this is still an issue almost a full year later.

    I just noticed that today! My heart is broken, I can't believe that irritating effect is back! 😭

    I'm also one of the people who bought the whole Huldufolk pack from the Helix store (with real money) when the set did not have the smoke effect. It's my favorite set but can no longer use it because it's now so distracting and immersion breaking 😞

    Please remove the smoke or give us the option to disable it. Please? Personally, I'll even take it without the smoke in transmog and apply the skin to another armor if Ubi is adamant about keeping it on the original.

    I also wanted to buy the new Jormungandr pack but not doing so because that one is smoking as well 😞

    Hudufolk is also my favorite armor. I don’t remember it ever smoking in the past (I think I would have noticed) and I did purchase it soon after it was released. Very frustrating that it’s back again, especially considering it’s been fixed in the past. Ubisoft please make the armor visual effects toggle at the very least.
