    Default Tab targetting noncombat pets in PvP must be fixed.

    It makes no sense to give noncombat pets tab target priority. I can understand combat pets (still, bad idea) but this...

    So please Trion, take a look at this and implement some working solution at least in patch cycle 3 or 4 (being optimistic here).

    STOP BEING BAD AND TAB TARGETING!

    Confused.

    Am I the noob because I actually pick my targets based off of threat and not proximity, or is the OP a noob because he hits tab and then attacks whatever he lands on ?

    Yeah, I should CLICK that MM rogue who is sprinting like a madman around me. You heard it right here, folks. PvP skill is all about clicking.

    Agreed, but finally off work in 10 minutes so lets make this fast!

    Your still a scrub if you need to rely on tab targeting for pvp.

    I doubt your gonna get a lot of PvP types siding with you.

    I tab target just fine TYVM. A few annoyances such as pets, but I don't see how tab targeting makes someone a noob.

    I don't keyboard turn, and I don't icon click.

    Personally, my mouse buttons are usually down because I'm too busy using my mouse to control my directions and i'd have to stop that(except I'd keep running because I have auto-run macro'd to my mouse). So I'd be waking in a straight line to target someone.

    PS: People who think their setup and way is the only way are the true noobs.

    I like buffing the companion pets instead of people in the group.

    It doesn't work that way at all. It will target you are facing first usually, so if the mage is "over there", then you would get the mage on your first tab.

    In the case I tab over the target I want, then it is much quicker to get back to them because I'll hit the tab much faster knowing I have X amount of people to go through before I get back to them. This really only happens in large groups of people, where clicking on the specific person would be even harder.

    When they put tab targeting on the GCD, then you can wake me up and call me a noob.

    endurance buffs on the companion pets pls, so they can soak more than just the one hit.
