i used to be a hardcore ff14 player
only a little bored with it since last raid tier, so now i’m on age of conan vacation ;o
targeting always bothered me in that game, for years i was having problems.
then i found out you can cycle the enmity list using L1+d-pad and everything was from there on a piece of cake.
it was just insane how such a small, fairly hidden feature changed the game for me.
also i had a targeting macro on my hotbar, /targetnearestenemy.
that was pure gold!
in this game i also use target nearest on cross button, and i think target previous on L1 to simulate my ff14 setup as much as possible.
but it looks like i can pretty much hit anything whenever i want without targeting, so i’m not really sure how i should use it yet (probs when i get to the dungeons and have to aggro-grab stray enemies)
i’m not too worried about skill heavy classes, but i also don’t know what it’ll be like.
if i get my conq up to level 80 and i see that i have 50+ different weaponskills, buffs and tank stances, and that i need instant access to each and everyone of them, i’ll just remap R1 button to Alt button and gain another hotbar
not sure about how the movement part will turn out.
i don’t think it’s easier than keyboard and mouse.
even after i finish tweaking it, it will probs still be a significant disadvantage in pvp.
you can do some very sharp turns using a mouse.
on a controller you’d need very high sense to be able to keep up, and playing like that is ugh…
have to see how the pvp will go when i find some high level people who knows what they are doing.
