    Default Make slaves use mouseover-target from main?

    Like the subject says - is there any way to make the slaves take the mouseover target from main?

    What I'm trying to accomplish is mousing over a mob (without changing current target) and press a button to make a slave (mage) cast polymorph on the mouseover-target of the tank.

    Is that possible in any way?

    I can't think of anything that does not change the current target.

    However, maybe you can use /targetlasttarget as a compromise, with a two-step mapped key calling named wow macros (presuming you are using ISBoxer). I haven't tested this, but you could try something like this ... e.g.

    on key-down
    warrior /target [@mouseover,harm]
    mage /assist [@{SLOT#}]
    on key-up
    warrior /targetlasttarget
    mage /cast polymorph /targetlasttarget

    There's always the possibility that the assist is delayed. So you might have more luck moving the mage's assist to the key-up step. E.g.

    on key-down
    warrior /target [@mouseover,harm]

    on key-up
    warrior /targetlasttarget
    mage /assist [@{SLOT#}] /cast polymorph /targetlasttarget

    obviously replace # with the slot number of the warrior.

    No.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.

    Go into WoW keybinds->targeting scroll down to Interact with Target. Right above, or below (forget) is "Interact with Mouseover"

    Create a keybind, step 1, have it do an assistme action, and a keystroke action that outputs the key you bound with "interact with mousover". This will cause ALL of your minions to assist off of your mouseover and target whatever you've moused over.

    If you want your minions to also actually move, then you can add the interact with target actions in step 2.

    I've got a macro just like this for looting, so that I can just mouseover and loot rather than click bodies then IWT to loot.

    For casters, like his mages, I imagine he'd want to use the face target IWT option in step 2, so his mages will turn to IWT with the target, while getting their assist off of the mouse over.

    ... no, they are assisting off of your selected Target, that's what "have it do an assistme action" is doing. Your toons cannot determine your mouseover. WoW does not share your mouseover with other clients.

    Right, hence the "not exactly" the functionality, but it is fundamentally achieving a mouse over system.

    You mouse over, hit your hotkey, they assist and cast/attack without you having to manually target.

    Throw a target last target output, and voila.

    Yeah, that is (and goes back to) what Wizeowel said.

    I mean, I wasn't exactly wrong. I detailed how to get what is essentially mouse over interactions, I just didn't notice someone else already did it, and I'm not exactly a stranger to how ISboxer works.

    I created a walkthrough for swtor on how to use isboxer before anyone else was mbing it or did something similar

    Lax is of course right in a literal sense, there is no mouse over functionality, but you can approximate it the way that the other guy and myself suggested.
