How to mark monsters??Follow

just me and my brother in a party, killing same type monsters with the same names, but we cant focus the same one sometimes cause theres no way to indicated monsters without having to scroll to emoticions and then CLICK the focus emote. and we all know how bad the emote quest was.

so anyone know how to macro this maybe? or know how to hot key the marks?

/focus

or just use /p "Follow me, I'll attack first" which tells him to follow you and not attack one until you do, obviously..

but you see, theres more to it than just that like group monsters that aggro at the same time.. marking is very useful. sure focus fire is good but, be able to show what not to attack , what to sleep and what to kill first can make a group more successful...

whats the point of having them there, if you don't have easy access to them cause the ui lags like a ****.

you could always make a macro for each command if you wanted.

Great explanation. If the UI is stupid, build a makro by yourself to make a workaround >.</ Smells rotten to me.

How about something like this: "Hey, the one on the left..."

Well im not going to explain the whole thing again, there is macro info in my sig and many other threads on the forum, some of which are stuck to the top for people to read. But yeah, its kind of a crappy way to get it done but i doubt there will be any keyboard shortcuts or anything to do it even in release.

"I Meant my left you idiot!"

Or here we go:
Tim: "let's fight the ugly one first"
Paul: "Ah Tim..... they're twins."

Seriously though, party vs party fights could do with some built in marking, though I'd rather they fix some of the other glaring problems and listen to the player base somewhat instead of sticking to a strict idea of what the game should be.

It's in the emote list. target the monster, type 'N', then tab over to the right one to 'enemy markers'.
