This blog has ripped SOE for a lot of stuff that they botched in the creation and maintenance of EQOA. However, they clearly got a lot right. I mean, why would I want to come back if they screwed everything up? I didn’t notice it until I played WoW and/or Runescape but one thing that they got right was the targeting system.
With the controller, you just tapped the bumper till you go to the mob you wanted. If you couldn’t find it, you could click the left triggers to get to your own group, then do a combination to find who they are targeting. Additionally, you could go into first person, hold the targeting trigger and aim till you were on the mob. Lastly, with the keyboard, the TAB button worked flawlessly.
I have yet to find WoW providing anything close to this accuracy and efficiency. To be fair, this is most likely due to the lack of mobs, simplicity of the game, and no mouse clicking. So, props to you SOE for setting the standard in my book for targeting.
Here’s a video showing first and third person conning while running.
Props for selecting Cake.
