    To all that are saying mods are illegal and I'll get banned.. read the OP again.

    What part of this is unclear? And as said, the download links were also removed.

    We knew that.  I hoped a Corsair was in the works, though I knew it was really unlikely.  :D

    In keeping with this theme, I hope they do add croissants...specially chocolate ones.

    If they don't allow that kind of stuff then they can ban almost all good mouses and keyboards drivers with which you can create macros.

     

    This thing is not even using macros.

    I really don't get the excitement about this "mod". All it does holding down your right mouse button (Ok, the crosshair too, for the visually impaired). Everything else is ingame options... 

    People really need a mod to keep a mousebutton pressed? What the hell?

    IMO, the best change is the elimination of holding the right mouse button, which makes my hand hurt after a while of playing.

    Here's also a demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpdgW_G4FyU

    I've thought about it and can't come up with a good answer against it.

    I was first thinking what about the AI moving out of the AOE as mobs do during building difficulty or more players involvement, and I have to say that they would still move anyway in those instances why make it take longer to cast.

    Makes sense to me, tho the mouse movement thing is not my style i'm all for more options for people.

    Some classes work very well with a gamepad... others do not. Trying to drop marks on the ground with a necro is far easier to do with a mouse than a gamepad. But for melee classes or classes with less dependence on dropping aoe attacks, it's great!

    Not the same thing exactly, but it's another option.

    Enter a whole new realm of challenge and adventure.

    If that download sets the keybinding for you in-game then it's a mod as well as if it adds the .png by modifying something in the game instead of it being an overlay.

    Macro keyboards / mice don't do that.

    I know what it does because I have downloaded it, it is in .ahk format and I know this pretty well.

    You can open it with notepad and see what it does.

    Now I tell you, this thing does not touch anything in the game.

    And the .png is just a picture that appear on top of other windows (thats why you need to run GW2 in windowed mode, otherwise you won't see the crosshair).

    Though that being said I do agree with you, I hope they add this feature.

    This would help a lot for anyone who wants to play a 'nade engineer well. Nothing better than being able to point and shoot, imo. A ground targeting ability is fine every once in a while, but when you play an engineer with 5-7 ground targeting spells, then it gets really frustrating. It would also help for a mesmer using blink, imo.

    Crosshair

    That was annoying me too.

    Either this guy added in a pirate class or they mean Crosshair.

    To me this game is near perfect.

    On the other hand. Having to hold right click to play a game is OLD NEWS. The game has auto-targetting already. This should have been implimented at launch. I really hope Anet gets on the ball with this. After playing Tera you realize how mediocre the controls are when you have to hold right click during combat. It's epic fail.
