    Healing wouldn't be that hard. The PS4 controller actually has a touchpad that would work easy enough for healing.

    What I mean is how well it would resonate with a playerbase used to a keyboard and a mouse, meaning whether anyone playing it on PC would rather play it on console. Console players that do not have a PC that they play games on are basically the only targeted group; they should naturally not be too motivated when it comes to WoW.

    You'd be surprised, I honestly haven't played a console game in years, like 8+ and I vastly prefer controller for mmos, I'd love official controller support for wow, won't happen, but I'd love it. And if they could get the full ffxiv cross play treatment they'd definitely get some console interest

    Why not work with console makers, and provide a keyboard that can be synced with console? Or include it with the game. A lot of people don't have PC's anymore.

    Have you tried to use it, how is it? Someone in my guild mentioned BfA has voice and the general consensus was sneer and derision because the last attempt was so abysmally bad. There was literally noone going "yeah let's try it".

    People are stupid. I truly ask myself how they see WoWs targeting system, hotkey management and menu systems panning out on consoles.

    I don't see why this would be a problem, if I could delete my chat box I would.

    You can play with a controller on live and still be terrible, I don't see the issue.
    Disarm now correctly removes the targets’ arms.

    A controller can actually be more than just its physical buttons, thanks to software. You can make each button have a different function when normally pressed, held down, double pressed, released, or when a different button is held. Also, that trackpad on a ps4 controller could easily make use of radial menus for lots of extra hotkeys. Tap on one side of it and a hotkey Ui could pop-up on screen and you can navigate it to select between a lot of different secondary hotkeys.

    Anyone that makes an argument about a lack of buttons must not know about the software available that can push controllers beyond their number of physical buttons in functionality.

    I am curious, how would macros and addons work in a console version of WoW?

    Addons would probably be built into the game as normal features. Or the game would just generally have better Ui controls than PC. And I'm sure they could add some sort of menu to build macros. But then again that'd be effort on Blizzard's part.

    And you can play CoD on a console with a guitar hero controller; doesn't mean it's what the game was designed for.



    I seriously doubt that WoW would ever go to consoles. The team likely has far better uses for their time.

    Can't use a mouse and keyboard on a console?

    Wait... You can..

    Tapping the console market of game sales and MAU's sounds like an excellent use of time.

    I feel like this isn't the right place to have this discussion, there's too much bias here to really have any meaningful talks here about this subject.
