How to handle abilities Fx?

I’ve never made an ability before and I wonder what is the best way to show effects? I thought that all the clients have the ability fx shown on their client so I can better manage it (like a low detail mode or if there is lag it doesn’t look weird). Is this a good idea?

Yes, I believe this is the best way to do it without wasting server resources.

You would have a module that has the skill’s effect script you want to run and you would have a local script that can be called by the server to run the module and play the effects for everyone. This also allows you to manage LOD like you mentioned by only playing the effects at a certain distance or limiting the effects at different distance intervals.
