Current and Cursor target last problem

    If I hit someone with a spell that targets "Current" and then get a cursor on the next spell and hit Cursor target last, this is not the same target and nothing happens.

    Or asked the other way: Does anybody combine the two ways of targeting on a pvp-mage, and how?

    If you target with a spell that is set to target current, then try to use a cursor target last, it tries to find the target before the current target. The solution is to always use target current and keep your intended target active.

    It strikes me that you are trying to play the EC the same way you play the CC. They are different animals and there are some things you will need to relearn. But in the end, the EC is a much more advanced client, and it will improve your game once you accept it as it is and learn to work with it's strengths and accommodate it's weaknesses.

    If you are trying to play the EC the same way you do the CC, you might as well give up now and go back to the CC.

    If there is a problem, it´s always the player, never the software.

    Explain to me, how you cast flamestrike, then run 5 screen after your opponent and then hit him as soon as he is in range. And I mean a one key solution that works in pvp. Wouldn´t it be easier to make the target you last hit with a spell to the last target?

    Well there are some targeting issues that at least some of us are trying to get fixed. But for now the only way is to either have the spell on target cursor, and then manually target your opponent when you get in range, or have your target on target current and make sure your target is cleared before you cast so you get the cursor.

    I agree it is a bug and you should report it if it bothers you.

    for bug report:
    "Hotkey A - heal set to cursor target cursor
    Hotkey B - heal set to target cursor
    Hotkey C - heal set to cursor target self
    Hotkey L = action cursor target last
    Hotkey S = heal set to cursor target stored
    T = some target mobile

    set T to current target in target window, then A B L fails to cast 2nd spell on T. C B L also fails, it should target self again but does target T. If you use hotkey S with the stored target being T, S B L also fails on the last target cast. " or just report what you wrote in your op.

    My preference is to have every spell target set up as cursor, tho I also have some duplicates for fast spells to either current target or target self.

    The workaround if you want a single key current target spell is to make a macro like M below. if you have set current target T in your target window, key sequence M B L will target T for both spells. I think this is what you are trying to do.

    Hotkey M = 3 part macro: heal target cursor, wait for cursor, cursor target last
