    Default When's Warrior Tab targeting going to be fixed?

    So sick of this overlooked issue!

    I was in a fight earlier in a very heated battle. 5 tabs and still couldn't select the target in my face until i manually clicked in the damn screen on him!


    How many months does it take to fix this crap?

    I know right!? It takes too long to have to click people AND skills.

    tab targeting is an efficient way for quick targets, i also run into this problem time 2 time, im right beside a click attacking his friend and i see him cast a long heal, i wanna tab target to him while im facing him, but it targets a guy 10meters infront of him, or on the side, when i wanna get that quick interrupt in.


    WoW had the best iv ever seen in a game..


    ever since, i haven't had another game be as good as WoW, Aion was pretty bad with tab targeting itself.

    another warrior issue that needs to be fixed, is titan strike.. it doesn't work like other aoes, plus the stun only works half the time, even at the start of fights when no dr was applied.

    Does the OP really think this only affects warriors? Like warrior tab targeting is different from rogue/mage/cleric tab targeting. Why specify warrior tab targeting?

    microDwarf, am I right? Because of their diminutive size, they're exploiting issues with the tab targeting system - and because of their apparent movement speed for their size, they're harder to click target than other races.

    People think I'm kidding, and there is some jest involved - but microDwarves are an actual issue if you play the Defiant side.

    on topic but offtopic as well (since its not warrior specific)

    can you change the binding for nearest target tab targeting? shift+tab is the default, which brings up steam overlay lol

    If you want to target someone in your face fast with tab move the camera up and zoom quickly so that only they are in view, you should tab to them immediately. I've just gotten used to focusing my camera and getting other people out of the view if I want to do a quick tab target, it's just second nature reaction now if i'm not targetting the person I want. Or I just click cause I arrange my game so I can finger press most my main abilities.

    Yeah, I really do. Because it does. I can't speak for all classes, but I do have a rogue and I don't have the trouble I have on a Warrior. Also on a rogue, you can target your tank and hit his target automatically. Can you do this on a Warrior? No.

    Thanks also. If nearest enemy works, I may bind it my liking.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I prefer my camera zoomed out so this isn't likely to work for me.

    It's not trolling at all - it's a serious issue.

    I actually like dwarves, which is why I rolled one.


    Don't get stuck in the hay.

    I've always liked Dwarven fighters/warriors.

    Still surprised that Trion went with the races they did instead of kind of going with their lore...ahem. Should be ARAF.
