To date, most of the spell effects have been far worse than WoW. Honestly, I think EQ has the best spell effects going.
That being said, I have seen a FEW spell effects recently that look pretty damn good. Hopefully what we've been seeing so far in Beta are placeholders and the graphics will continue to improve.

Almost all of the spell effects you see in game have been around since I started participating in beta 2.5 Brad has said on multiple occasions that these are still temporary. They, according to him, have a team of artists concentrating on new spell effects and particle effects through out the game. So keep your chin up, its getting better every day.

I like cool spell effects. The only problem with them is in raids though. At least in EQ2..a lot of people had to either face a wall or turn the spell effects almost off... So much crap was going off in a fight that it was like the 4th of July.....lag would get really bad. I would like to see more cool effects added in the near future though, and an option to turn them down if needed.

2 - Old FX -current fx-

Yeah they should definitely get on the ball with the spell FX. My Psi is missing several - all I get is some arm waving animation and that's it.
