    bump because I feel this should really be added. The enemy sign system is there, it's just severely restricted and it could really become a great system.

    What a great marking system, and...... SE you make it useless by limit it to leve only.

    Only the one mark the mob can cancle it, that is a very good idea.

    Greetings!

    I'd like to give you all an update on the status of the marking feature we have been working to revamp.
    • Enemy and Ally signs will be combined into one category
    • Only party leaders will be able to mark targets
    • It will be possible to use these freely -- no more Guildleve or other content restrictions!

    Why only party leader? What if the party leader falls or is dealing with a different monster, requiring a second-in-command?

    It's really best that only one person can control it. Otherwise you get two different people trying to mark 2 different mobs as the primary attack target or something. Eliminates confusion, and the leader is the natural choice for the one person since they're supposed to, yknow, be leading.

    I kinda understand the logic behind only allowing party leaders to make signs, but it's flawed and you should reconsider. Typically, it works best if either the puller or tank marks the target and they may or may not be the party leader. Heck as a whm, you might not even be targeting the mob ever. I just ask that you test the practicality.

    Can the party leader give people assist like in WoW? Because in WoW the party leader can pick people to be assistants and they can mark stuff as well.

    Or the party leader could just give pt lead to the one who does the marking, you know?
    It's not like it's such a big deal.

    Not that I'm against the leader being able to appoint assistants.
    It's just not really something so much-needed that resources have to be put into this now, in my opinion

    Do you have the courage to dream? Or are you too scared to be laughed at?

    Party leader only is bad

    Sometimes it's nice to have multiple people being respondsible for their own signals:

    Tank: focus on this target first.
    Blm: I slept this mob, leave it alone.
    Random party member: I need a heal!

    Now in in small party, attacking a few mobs, it's still manageable by one person. But in bigger raids with complex strategies and/or a large amount of mobs (we are getting those right?!...) , that shouldn't all fall down to one person.

    Thank you very much for the reply, I'm glad to see this being addressed. Now at least the leader can mark important monsters for the group. Works a lot better than just yelling "That slug over there!" lol

    Party leader only is fine, it means the leader is actually an important role. If someone wants to mark targets then they should be promoted.
