1.Hit ESC to bring up the menu.

3.Click the GAME tab at the botton of the PREFERENCES window (you should already be here).
4.Click the Controls option on the left side of the PREFERENCES window.
5.Check the "Enable Focus Target" check-box.
6.Click the KEY BINDINGS tab at the bottom of the PREFERENCES window.
7.Select Targeting option on the left.
8.Find the "Set Focus Target / Swap Focus Target" keybind.
9.Choose a new keybind if you want (I use the + key).
10.Scroll down further until you find the "Focus Target Modifier".
11.Choose a new keybind if you want (I use a mouse button).

Now we're ready to actually use this functionality!
1.Target your companion, or anyone else that you need to heal frequently.
2.Press your "Set Focus Target" keybind.
3.Hold down your "Focus Target Modifier" keybind.
4.You should see that the mouse cursor turns blue.
5.Use a healing ability, and it should now be applied to your Focus target.
The problem here: Focus target modifier is buggy.

If you press the modifier key while the GCD is still active and use a skill, the skill is added to the skill queue and executed after GCD is gone, but the target modifier key will be ignored.

So this means you can't chain skills while using the modifier key. So you have to be extremly careful not to execute your skill too early, otherwise you hit the wrong target.

I am a healer myself and I can't use this functionality because it's to risky. I have to chain my skills and I have to be certain to heal the tank (and not myself).

This issue should be known to BW, because it existed in the beta as well. Guess what, it is still there and a pain in the ***.

1. If you're going into a convo. that you know will result in a fight, static barrier yourself, timers do not seem to go during conversations, so you will come out of it with your barrier at full no matter how long the conversation is.

2. When you get on your speeder, your companion heals completely (good for outdoor areas).

3. When you dismiss and summon your companion it is healed completely (good for indoor areas).

4. There are comm vendors for all the planets on the fleet in the supply area.

5. You can filter the GTN results by doing a search, adding a filter keyword to the textbox and hitting the small button next to the textbox to do the filter (don't hit "search" button again).

To play full screen and alt-tab without a loading screen set the game to windowed mode(not full screen-windowed) and hit alt+enter. You might need to readjust your resolution afterwards.

Auction House Alt:

Make an alt (I leveled mine to 10 just so they look decent).

Go to the fleet and park them right by the GTN terminals.

Mail everything from your main to this toon you wish to sell on the AH.

Save a huge amount of time traveling.

Decent idea but for anyone who wants to use this bear in mind that there is an hour delay in mail. So if you need the cash soon this isn't necessarily the way to go.
