Target of target?

From a Tanking perspective, it is nice to be able to see that you are keeping aggro or see right when aggro switches so you can pop a taunt. It's not a necessity I suppose but it is definitely a missed convenience.

Glad to know about assist target though. That will be good to pass along to DPS friends.

preferences -> keybinds -> targeting -> acquire target of your target

The only thing it does, is make it easier for you to know who they are targeting, not impossible.

Now we have to pay more attention to what´s happening on the screen instead of just looking at the UI.
Isn't that a good thing?

It's different from other Mmo's, and I like it.

I'd rather have the game be different from other MMO's by having something more unique, like character stories or voiced quests, rather than removing a UI element everyone is used to.

Just sayin'.

Actually, there are two keybinds you must have for this to work:

- one is "set main assist"
- other is "acquire target's target"

Problem with this is that

a. it frequently bugs out Unit Frames
b. Main Assist portrait / hp bar is covering enemy cast time bar
c. to "acquire target's target" you MUST click first on the main assist portrait. This is extremely retarded >_<
d. whole system is buggy as hell and quite frankly for now it's better to use vent then in-game assist.

This game needs mods and it needs them bad!
I'm not talking about PVE which every half-retarded dumb monkey can do but PVP in environment that's both unresponsive and badly designed.

Besides, to every troll that says "watch the screen": try tabing thru a cluster of 8 enemies to get the right target you are supposed to assist on!
