Hi guys–I’m working on getting my act together on a fresh mage. I wanted to see the fights and dungeons in a new perspective. Its been fun and interesting, but I’ve noticed that targeting is so much more challenging compared to melee.
For our range friends who aren’t familiar–it isn’t as big a deal with us because if you hit an ability even without a specific target in mind, it will just start hitting whatever is near you; especially with cleave. Then of course you can focus a specific target to kick or burn or w/e and its all well and good.
But with this toon I’m nervous to rely on tab targeting because it opens the possibility of pulling mobs that aren’t in combat before the tank is ready, and if I simply click on the swirling pack of mobs then sometimes I end up clicking on melee and hunter pets instead and that gets frustrating too.
If I was frost then I could just do the frost-ball spell to get the ball rolling, but I’m learning fire now so its very target-focused to proc the flamestrike aoe and pyroblast.
Is this one of those things where I just have to practice and get better, or is there some trade secret that I’m just not aware of, like a macro or something? Ty
