    Alliance targeting as WHM

    I've had a lot of people ask me in-game about how I target and cure people so fast while in an alliance. There's an easy solution for PC gamers. I didn't find this on any other forums, so I thought I'd get the word out here.

    In-game, open the config menu, and hit misc2. Click on movement under the key assignment category. Near the bottom of the window that opens, you will see options for Menu/Target Cursor Up and Menu/Target Cursor Down. These commands will allow you to move up and down through the members of your party and alliance. Assign the keys that you want to use to move your target up/down through the alliance. I used the I and K keys. I hope this helps... Let me know if I need to clear something up.

    Much Much simplier method.

    /ma "Cure X" <stal>

    will put a -> arrow on the alliance member list, use up / down to select your target.

    Also ignores any gear-swaps, no idea if the OP one does.

    Works with any and all -other- targetable spells, even party only ones like Regen and Refresh. I've since never missed a cure / buff due to someone blinking like mad.

    Yeah, I like to use <stal> for things like Cure, and <stpt> for Regen, Refresh (if RDM) and so on.

    Great thread.
    Didn't know about either of these methods.

    <stal> ignores gear swaps? That would have saved me a lot of headaches earlier... Thanks.

    The only problem I have run into with <stal> is that I have to create a whole new set for healing outside of alliance (places like campaign, Power leveling, etc.). Other than that, it works great.

    It places a cursor over your name in the alliance player list. You use up / down keys to select the target then enter to cast the spell. Because the target is being selected on the alliance list and not the graphics window it's similar to use someone's name in a macro vs just <t> or <stpt>. Gear swaps won't change your target and your spell will always go off.

    Only downside I've noticed with stpt/stal is that it can sometimes take more time to locate a target and run close to them if they're out of magic range. Still beats losing the target all the time, though, but i think it would be better if SE eventually figured out a way to not lose target when changing gear.
