<p>I think it would be pretty neat, if when a player who was on autofollow would stand a bit farther back when the group was engaged in combat, like 200% farther. lol</p><p>Or atleast some kind of option to control the distance you autofollow someone, atleast in combat. Im sure that would be the most preferable option for everyone.</p><p>I just know how much agrivation it is, having to not use autofollow due to the fact they follow so close incombat they die to frontals. Atleast make it so its alot easier to turn mobs for an autofollowed toon.</p><p>If you doubled the distance you followed someone while they were engaged, then they would resume normal following distance after combat was over. This would be awsome.</p>

<p>And a distance of about 0-5 meters when not in combat so they would stop getting stuck on walls, rocks, etc.</p>

<p>Agree with this. When tanking, if someone has me on autofollow (afk person, or my boxed healer) it takes a lot of mob manipulation to get that character out of melee aoe frontal arc. Even just 1 or 2 more meters of follow distance would help.</p>

<p>Yeah it's a pain to get the mobs to turn around perfectly so that your auto-follow assassin can do backstabs <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>We've asked for this many times.</p><p>/follow <player> <leashDistance></p><p>aka</p><p>/follow Atan 10</p><p>Those of us who box regularly fully understand how useful it would be to set that distance smaller or larger depending on the zone.</p>

<p>I've been wanting this for years to make playing multiple accounts easier, but I doubt we'll ever see it happen <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>
