    Default Possible to alter tab targeting algorithm to target pets less?

    I assume there is a certain formula/algorithm when tab targeting that determines who you target next (probably based on proximity). My question is: would it be too difficult to alter this slightly so we have a lower chance of targeting a pet when 10 players are in range?

    I'm not sure if anyone else feels this way, but in Warfronts it seems every time I tab, I first have to skip through the pets - maybe because they're always closest to me.

    Obviously, there are times in which targeting a pet is advantageous, which I would recommend be saved for times in which there are only two or three targets in tab's range.

    Any thoughts of other ways to improve this, aside from "just hit tab again?"

    I would expect a option to change Tab to Target Nearest Enemy Player very shortly. It came out a few years after WoW release.

    Good a thread as any to post this, but since 1.1 patch or soon after I am tabbing player pets constantly in rifts and invasions, non flagged and auto flag turned off. Even the players/pets I am tabbing are not flagged. This never used to happen and is a real pain.

    Wow this is the first well thought out, lucid, sane, and politely posted request I've come across after three pages of skimming this forum. It's even an actual problem. Hopefully they fix it if only to encourage to the behavior lol.

    iirc, Target Nearest Enemy Player is set to like F5 or something stupid. You can rebind it to Tab. Though not sure how good the algorithm is.

    They should had a option in menu for Tab Target
    that when you active it.. when you use tab you NEVER target a pet...

    who the **** want to kill a pet ?
