This gonna just turn off the buff icons under the players names in your party, gonna let the HP/MP bar on and also you can still see the purple on the party HP/MP bar to cleanse if you're a healer, of course should also fix your fps freeze with all that.

How to do it:
***Do a backup of your original files before change anything please***

Go to TERA\Client\S1Game\CookedPC\Art_Data\Packages and create a new folder called " _S1UI" then download the file(S1UI_PartyWindow.gpk) from the link below and copy it inside that new folder " _S1UI":

If you still see the buff under your party UI members: means you've to remove the original file (S1UI_PartyWindow.gpk) from "TERA\Client\S1Game\CookedPC\Art_Data\Packages\S1UI" with that i mean you've move that file to another place outside the TERA folder and not literally delete it becos the game sometimes find the gpk file even if you created a new folder in another direction but still inside the TERA folder (happened to me) so yea make sure you moved the file to another place outside the TERA folder.

As example: in my case i did another folder called UI in "TERA\Client\S1Game\CookedPC\Art_Data\Packages" to move there the original gpk as backup... well the game was still using that file in that new direction folder i created when i was in the game.

If you don't main or play too much a gunner and the skill effects lags your game or bothers you, then you should try this:

***If your game doesn't start, you don't liked the result or you didn't noticed anything positive after doing all those change... well just put back all the files to the right folders and your game will be normal again***

***If nothing of these methods did your game run better... well then put all your original files back to the right folders and wait for EME to fix it.***

New Tip to stop the fps spikes 9/11/2016 (Optional)

The yellow bar from brawler, ninjas and gunners in the party UI also make your game get those fps spikes, no i didn't tried to remove them like i did with the buff icons and i doubt is possible anyways... only way to stop that is removing the whole Party UI and that implies not see anyone else HP or anything in the party... but well you'll maybe stop the fps drop a lot with that and as DPS or Tanks that's something you don't really need to see, not good for healers only i guess.

instead of using my file just remove it from the game folder or if you're in raid you can ask to be moved to party with no braw, gun or ninjas on it so you don't see the yellow bar.
