Group Targeting

Post#1 » Fri Mar 09, 2018 11:16 pm

Hey Im looking for either a way to make the core ui to work with group targeting or for an addon that can do group targeting. I do have the addon ENEMY which is suppose to support calling targets but does so through the creation of a private intercom channel which RoR does not currently support. Anyone using anything that works with the current version of RoR? Thanks for the help!

By group targetting, do you mean Assisting? If so, there is an Addon called Swift Assist you can use. Or, you can hit Esc/Macro's and then build a macro for it. You can make a set assist macro, and an assist macro or just type in the players name...

If you mean targeting your group-mates, you can set Hot-keys for that in Warhammer it's self.

I just installed Swift Assist but there doesnt seem to be a module or a list of commands anywhere so no clear direction on its use.

The main assist button in the ui is non functioning and as far as i know, devs themselves have said they dont want to fix it, neither does the extra channels so things like enemy dont work either, they wont add those either.

So, i usually ask in the group who is the main assist and just do a basic macro for it, which makes the fact that they dont want to fix the main assist ui button even dumber when you can do the same with a simple macro but hey, to each their own.

ESC-> Macros .. There are two new icons in the macro overview - whiteblue icons.. one says /setassit or something along those line.. and the other /assist I think. .dragg em into your castbar and voila.. select def target you ld like to assit in range and hit /setassit .. now you will check current target of that deftarget with the other macro

there are even keybindings for assisting grp members by number. .if you have enough stretchable fingers or a 12 button mouse ;-)

WHat swift assist does not do - it will not tell all other that the personbeing assisted switched target.. there is no simple way to do that afaik

I've got a little bit of trouble with this addon.
I got the two icons and when I use the /setassist my target name apears on the screen, but the /assist doesn't work. Neither target I the player, nor do I get their targets :?

What about the announce settings, is it supposed to tell who you assist?

Btw it looks like BuddyBind would do the same^^

Double check you have the correct assist macro for swift assist. There are 2, the standard assist and swift assists. I believe the correct one just has “/assist” in the macro portion, and swift assist fills in the name as you target.

As always, if having issues try a /rel to reload UI.

As for announceing, you could set something in enemy or Think out loud to post when you change targets I guess, but that’d be tough to macro, and lead to ridiculous amount of spam. Assisting doesn’t take a GcD, so you can spam the assist button. Or just be in a group with coms...

And I don’t believe there is any addon to help with friendly targeting. You can remove Enemies party sorting function and set hotkeys to target the players in your group, or just click target them... for targeting non party/WB members, you just gotta click their character... you can use Enemy markers which help with this however.
