View Full Version : Advanced targeting

I have been playing eq2 pvp since it came out. I tried playing Vanguard to see how that was but I did not make it thru the free month from buying the game. It had some nice features, shame the game play was so lagged. The 1 feature I would like to see in EQ2 is the targeting. If something was attacking you their name would appear on the side of your screen in a column , so if 5 mobs or people were attacking your group their names would appear on the right side down the screen for easy targeting. You main target is in the same spot as EQ2 but you could switch targets just by clicking on their name. You could still be taunted and stuff but this way you would at least see if someone new was attacking you while you were on mobs. It was just a nice feature that I think would be nice in this game. Let me know what you all think.

<p>Hmmm....very interesting.  As someone who plays enchanters, I'd kill to be able to target like that for mezzing.  EQ2 targetting is messy and needs some work for sure.</p>

I completely agree, having a list of all nearby enemies and players that are attacking you would be great, aswell as being able to see their health and power. This could still be messy, however if they seperated it by different windows, IE mobs in one scalable window and PVP opponents in another scalable window. I really hope the devs read this. It would also make targetting an unknown sniper much easier.

<p>To be honest, the last thing I'd want is an x4 of Onyx appearing on my screen with all their HP and power bars.  I think that alone would lag anyone out.</p><p>I actually use a small chatbox at the upper right hand corner of my screen which filters out everything except me being hit, and me hitting someone.  As soon as PVP tries to tag me, I see it in that box and can either turn and target them, or /target name.</p>
