The issue with Jeering has been out there for a long time and never been addressed, but the new AoE Utter Destruction also requires you to have a target to cast it. It's a medium annoyance and not game breaking, but an annoyance nonetheless.  Why do we have the only two AoE's that require a target?I thought maybe you needed a target for the new one simply because it was formerly a single target skill. But then I leveled my Swashy up and their single-target-turned-AoE does NOT need a target. What the heck gives here? Why do these two Zerker AoE's need a target? Any ideas? Is it gamebreaking to have multiple open AoE's? /puzzled.

Why does insolence go away if you don't hit anything with it?

Why are you derailing another thread?

I am upgrading this to a real annoyance.  When you are facing multiple adds is when you cast your AoE's.  These mobs die fast, but if you try and cast either aoe and a mob dies before you finish casting, you get "No target" even though there are targets for a normal aoe to hit, and you have to retarget and cast again (or try).  

Unless there is some unforseen reasoning behind this, FIX PLEASE!

Lyger while I share your general frustration with our beloved Berserker class, turn that frown upside down bro.  At least we have a little better itemization so far in DoV2.0.

Better itemization = copious amounts of multi attack.  As bad as Tuor annoys the general population, he's right.  We need tons of MA to hold aggro, and we need hit rates to hold aggro.  

Since SoE refuses to fix the warrior aa tree or any of our multiple (seriously, multiple) issues, this is all we can do.

Also bumping for a fix to Jeering and Utter Destruction to NOT require a target.
