    Is WoW really a tab target auto attack game 100% of the time?

    So many of the abilities are AoE and frontal attacks that don’t require a target to be selected. Would love to see the game move all currently single target abilities to be frontal damage abilities that don’t require a target, but instead, you need to be facing the direction of the target like it is currently the case but with only a few abilities.

    Tab target can continue to be there but only functions with auto attacks. Imo this change alone can bring combat to a next gen feel and differentiate itself from classic versions of the game.

    This sounds genuinely awful.

    okay. so how would fireball work if there are multiple targets in your cone and you want to hit a specific one?

    or alternatively: how do you prevent every ranged ability from turning into barrage.

    I thought you don't play and hated this game?

    I really, really, REALLY dislike this idea. I'm not playing an FPS, I don't want a targeting reticle. That's one of the things that quickly drove me away from other games, including New World. There's a place for those games, and I wish people who enjoy them all the best, but those are not games that I will play.

    That doesn't really count.

    It feels too easy though just standing in your spot bashing buttons knowing it will work. No dodging no getting out of danger’s way...etc at least ff14 gives you a middle ground between NW and WoW where you see graphed attacks and can run out.

    There are always mechanics making you move, and your target generally has to be in front of you. There's plenty of dodging and shit, it just has nothing to do with targeting.

    Sounds like an easy way to just straight up ruin the game. No thanks. There's nothing wrong with the way single-target abilities work. This suggestion pretty much amounts to reducing the functionality of a system of the game that's currently working just fine and unproblematically. That doesn't sound very 'next-gen' to me. Differentiating the game from others by making it shittier doesn't exactly seem like the correct way to go.

    WoW should be a side scrolling platformer like Maplestory.

    Nice troll, OP

    Think that's an issue with wow fans...and devs
    They play another game, and instead of just liking it they decide ahh gee what is this was wow


    Then we get pet battles and torghast

    Wildstar did this, made every single ability some form of skillshot and it worked really well.
    And what if it's not bait? What if it truly is my own unfiltered dogshit opinion, hm? What then?

    I mean, if WoW just included a biscuit in the center of the screen, where each time you click on said biscuit your biscuit point score went up up by 1, and you could purchase 2x, 3x, 4x etc. multiplier upgrades with each 1,000,000 biscuit points, and whoever got the highest number of biscuit points won, I'd be down with that.

    Personally, I'd love it if they just made WoW into a roller coaster simulator.
