lols @ people thinking annoyances are challenges. Probably the same people who grind blues in behests because they're so hardcore and skilled.
You're right that it's not challenging per say, (as in not brain surgery) but you have to admit it's more of a challenge than just standing in one spot spamming AOE.
Except I'm not spamming AoE, I'm using the most popular WS in the game, Skull Sunder. I don't know how many times that after I look up, see no Steadfast, ready Skull Sunder on a single mob and right as my stamina bar fills up enough to execute the skill, steadfast pops and I aggro some goat. I shouldn't have to wiggle my joystick, wait a few seconds for the laggy server to register my movement and get out of position every single time I want to use a 500TP WS that any other DoW class can use without any issues, that's ridiculous.
Plus, I rely on increased parry I get from steadfast because I'm normally solo'ing mobs well above my level. And SE gives MRDs no alternative to increase their parry otherwise, the only stat to not gain benefits from HQs and I've yet to see any piece of armor that adds parry. Fracture is also useless without steadfast minus the one time I get to use it after popping Foresight. I'm not being followed by goats all the time, but...
Do you really think MRDs having the ability to turn off AoE would turn this game into easy-mode or are you just one of those guys who's of the douche variety? Because I'm not going to admit it's more challenging because its not, anyone with common sense could figure that out, in fact it makes MRD less challenging because I might as well not bother with fracture because I get so few partial parries and it's back to the same old 1,1,2,1,1,2 with a little more wiggling of the joystick.
^This. God this. People who claim it involved skill need to read this sp freaking bad.

You're the one who made this thread. You're the one complaining about not beingable to use your aoe weaponskills probably in order to avoid targetting mobs that you don't want to hit. You're the one that offered the cheap solution. And now you're pulling a 180 and basically insulting yourself.
And to the person you quoted: rank some other melee classes so you got more single target weaponskills you seem to want so desperately.
