    Hey all

    So, I've decided to give EC a damn good go. My biggest drama I am having with the change is with mousewheel targetting. I seem to be overcasting spells quite often (something that i barely do in Classic). I have put it down to legacy targetting with the mousewheel. If I use my target self by using a single mousewheel click I can cast perfect. But if I am in an intense fight I seem to just roll the mouse wheel half a dozen clicks causing my next spell to not begin to cast.

    I have tried searching for way to rectify this without going to the EC targetting, I've had no success finding something. Does anyone know of a way to fix this without changing from legacy targetting or changing my 15 year old habit of using the mousewheel as I do.

    Also, is there a way to make non-party heal bars bigger?

    Thank you in advance people

    You can re-size most things by choosing Actions from the Main Menu, going to Other, and scroll down to near the bottom and chose Toggle Scale Mode. When it is activate, click on what you want to rescale and use the mouse wheel to resize while hovering over the item (bar, container, etc).

    After dragging any spell to ur dock, right click, and choose target-current, this will save some much time scrolling up. Same for mini heals, drag and drop mini heal to ur dock, and set it to target self. I leave just a couple spells with target cursor, like curse to pick a target, and greater heal in order to heal someone else, friend/pet/self

    Also don't forget you can also use the radial buttons on the health bars. I use these often to heal or cure friends nearby. You can set them for either normal spells of Greater Heal, Cure and such or you can set them to chivy spells, cleanse by fire, etc... And for enemies you can set them to do damage quick easy spells.
