Targeting system?

    At the Shadowlord spawn there are sometimes like 25 dragons and 35 players. Now when this bad guy spawns i am having a lot trouble to get his healthbar up. Usually i use STRG-Shift to see all valid targets from where i drag the healthbar. But with like 60 blue targets i cant see the red one (maybe there are even some more reds like vortexes).

    So i tried to use the ingame macros (i am using the 2D client). SelectNext was my choice. Chosing "Hostile" only works if i am the target of the shadowlord, which most likely i aint.

    I if i select "Mobile" then i can cycle thru all of this 60 targets plus vortexes to get the shadowlord healthbar up. By the time i get it up he is usually dead.

    What i am doing wrong? How you guys target the next grey/red attackable opponent. Is there any ingame macro i can use or a third party program (using uoassist right now)?

    I just click the name as he appears as much as I can and run into the crowd of dragons. I'm sure someone has an easier way of targetting than us.

    I'm using the SA client. I set up the mouse wheel to scroll to change to next enemy target.

    That's gonna be my next project: Switching to SA client. Maybe after SL event has finished. Until then i am busy trying to get one more mempo ... and with RL duties ... :bored:

    Spawn location has changed now so that should help a bit. Furthermore i found a little workaround: After using CTRL-SHIFT its possible to right-click on those upcoming names. This closes the name-bar of the right-clicked "mobile". Do this where you think the SL stays and after a few clicks one can see the red SL bar. Dragging its healthbar up and target is easy then, even in lag.
