Note that when in Legacy mode the interface functions roughly the same. Some of the functionality is not available, or has a different effect when in this mode. Also, the interface will have a slightly different appearance, and can be accessed via the options menu, rather than the ribbon.

The functions that are not available are:

  • The ability to change the interface's appearance
  • The ability to hide the target information pane or target reticules
  • The ability to disable ability bar cooldown timers (these are not shown anyway)
  • Enable edit mode

The transparency slider will not affect all interfaces, only the chat background.
