Mage Combat is completely Backwards

edited August 18 in General Discussion
If you already have a target, pressing a keybind for a spell should cast at-that-target.

Instead of...
Tab/click-on-target) Select Target
#) Select Spell
Y/click-target) Target to cast spell at
#) Select Spell
Y/click-target) Target to cast spell at
#) Select Spell
Y/click-target) Target to cast spell at
...

It should be...
Tab/click-on-target) Select Target
#) Cast spell at target
#) Cast spell at target
#) Cast spell at target
#) Cast spell at target
...

Things like Heal/Cure, beneficial spells should automatically cast on Player if a mob is targeted.

It's currently very clunky and unlike any other MMO out there.

  • And what if you want to target someone else? Or yourself? An ally? Someone's mount?

    For what it's worth, you can queue last target. Just hit your last target hotkey while the spell is casting.

    The mage combat should be improved.

    You change target before casting the spell, like in every other MMO.
    You don't have to keep clicking on the same target over and over and over and over ...

    The pre-cast is really annoying: why do you need to prepare your spell before casting it?
    Why do you need to click your target again to cast the spell?
    You should directly cast the spell against your target when you press the quickbar button.

    Or you should be able to cast the spell by pressing two times the quickbar button instead of clicking the target (e.g.: <1> to prepare your fireball, and <1> again to cast it on your target).
  • There's an option in the settings for "Enable Autotarget." Try that.

    That definitely helps.

    So that you can be running around with it ready to go if some mo-fo jumps you. Valid tactic just as it was in UO.
