an idea from maplestory... show a window when mouse is over an item with its description... current description space is too small

Actually I thought about something like that too. It could be nice to have label after click or even like in ragnarok online another window for item description and additional picture.

Or we can just be creative and add descriptions that fit in the space provided.

:| The discussion is about improvement to the current descriptions--the least you could do is explain why you believe the current system is superior to something more practical and aesthetically pleasing.

That would give the concept artists something to do :) and the pictures could be more painterly than the pixel art

I really don't like the "tool tip" idea ... I f it were up to me I'd eliminate the mouse completely and use the keyboard to navigate everything. Its faster and you don't have to switch between input devices.

They could be painting or svg graphics as well.

Or both :)

It would be nice to have something like the pictures on the cards from ragnarok online, with each artist using his own medium and style…
