I thought this was tab targetted?

i thought this was originally supposed to be tab targetted, but the recent mmorpg article was saying how aiming is slowly making its way through the game.  so it is manual/twitch or tab targetted?

    I believe it's supposed to be "both" but there is no dodging. There is active block.

    This might still be pertinent.

    I'm curious how it's supposed to be "both". I had heard that they wanted aimed for ranged classes but it seems odd they wouldn't do it for melee as well. Either way I'm really curious to see how it turns out because if it's good I'll consider playing. Otherwise definitely not. But as a healer I'm really curious how they're going to handle that. If they do a good non targeting free aiming healing system then I'm all in. Otherwise, no, tab target healing lost it's fun years ago for me.

    I think you are correct on the ranged targets. Maybe it's like guild wars 2 in that you can "face" your enemy and they will automatically be targeted or you can tab.

    But "yeah" unsure.

    Señor Jacobs, any insights?

    For attacking specific players, it is primarily Tab-targetted.

    The manual aiming mentioned in the article is intended mostly for shooting at buildings or ground targets.

    You can also use an ability without a target and then your character will swing a melee weapon in front of him hitting the closest target or will fire an arrow or spell directly ahead which will hit the first enemy it collides with.

    As Tim Elsen was saying he used AOE abilities because his aiming was poor.

    oh thank goodness. i'd hate to be the assassin class having to deal with ppl hopping and spinning around and twirling to avoid twitch based attacks.  as if you'd ever see that on a battlefield in medieval times or any other time.  maybe if richard simmons was the trainer then you might see that heheh.  good to know that probably wont be the case in this game.  i love the daoc and ffxiv targetting systems.
