Bling texture used by the default UI
  • Unlike Cooldown:SetSwipeColor(), there is no equivalent SetBlingColor() to control how the bling is tinted when a texture is used.
  • The bling texture is not parented by either the cooldown nor the cooldown's parent. Consequently, it ignores effective alpha and can appear even when the cooldown would ordinarily be transparent.
