Snap camera is beginning to wear me down

It might seem minor, but this kind of UI clunkiness is such a huge deal to having seamless gameplay. I am honestly beginning to think of unsubscribing just because it makes it so hard to kite properly while using abilities in every aspect of the game. I don't understand why this option doesn't exist.

What? That doesn't work at all. That just turns my character along with my camera, which is even worse than just my camera moving.

I basically have to have to pray for no lag if I can't jump and I want to use Force in Balance on the run on a target that's behind me or to my side. It's ridiculous.

HUH??

Sorry I'm just confused. I have no idea what UI bulkiness or problems are encountered because of camera snap. It doesn't seem minor, it is.

Edit didn't see above post.

Click force in balance and target your own feet. No need to see behind you or to the side. It's radius is big enough to hit mobs that are far enough away

I use the right mouse button to move the camera and it never snaps back ever.
Must be a problem on your end only.

That's because right-click turns your character as well, but that doesn't solve any problems in regards to kiting or turning only the camera while moving and using a spell.

This is a pretty big deal in PVP and top-end raiding. It makes the game feel so clunky for basically no reason.

No it doesn't. The camera is fine.

Why are you kiting with force in balance? That makes no sense. The cool down is so long most of your time will be spent running around.

I've had to do it occasionally, and like I said. Target your own feet, it will hit any mob anywhere near you.
