It's up and down on the D pad to cycle through friendlies, and left and right for enemies.

Yes go into your settings and set up custom filters. It's almost impossible to play without them.

There will soon be an update to the targeting thread.

There are now two new commands in the Actions and Traits > General:


Target Forward
Target Back

These can be added to your Cross-bar. You can also make a User Macro for Nearest Enemy:

To do this, go to System Menu >User Macros. Then select any of the empty slots, select an Icon for your macro and type in /targetenemy


Now just go to your cross-bar and set that User Macro to one of the slots.


Now you have Nearest Enemy, Next Enemy and Last Enemy, as easy to use buttons on your Cross Bar.
