the probes that float around in the puzzle boss should be tab targetable. they currently are not. its a major pain in the a$#$ to target them with your mouse, then go back to killing adds if you're standing in the middle circle

I don't really have much problem with them. And as long as nobody hits them you can just get them afterwards.

Edit: Could do with a bigger hit box maybe. Or be higher on the selection priority than Operator.

No one in my guild has trouble killing them. Must be you.

EDIT: I misunderstood.

Post is about probes not being considered enemeis (just neutrals) until attack, therefore not tab targetable.

As a sent who is on blue I had trouble with this for my first three runs, but figured out a way to make it easier. When we start the fight I leap to the trash to build focus then head straight for my probe and do a force sweep aoe to get him red. Then I do a quick tab target and he's down before I know it. So my recommendation is a small AOE to knock them red allowing the tab.

They spawn at 12 and 6 on the map you should be waiting there for them and be able to click them instantly. If you can't you are doing it wrong.

I do agree with the OP. It's sort of dumb that you can't tab target them, but you can hit them with AoE abilties. But I guess that's probably the only way BW could code it. If it was targetable, it would have to be red, then it would be considered an enemy and would aggro whoever had highest threat on it.

Can you tab target the random non hostile adds in KP between Bonethrasher and Jarg and Sorno? Can you hit them with an AoE and make them hostile?

I have never had a problem clicking on them....They move, stop for a bit and then move again. If you are not coordinated to click on one while you are in the middle........well........................I just won't say anymore.

Agreed. If you can't do something simple like clicking a little ball in the air, you shouldn't be in TFB in the first place.
