spellcasting suggestion

Postby screeg » Mon Aug 17, 2009 4:30 pm

When I choose a spell to cast, the screen centers on the caster, but what I'm looking at before I pick a spell is the target. When the game centers the screen I have to search out the target again. --edit: this applies to choosing "Shoot" as well--

Another suggestion: after picking a spell, when you hover over your target with the icon, target details no longer appear. If I want to cast a direct damage spell against the weakest of six different orcs, for example, it would be useful if those details still came up on screen. Same idea for healing party members.
---EDIT---

...and isn't there any way to change party formation after starting the game? Turns out the last position, where I put my weakest character, is flanking the leader, instead of in the back middle.

You can change party order/formation in the game by left-clicking "(LEADER)" in white, just under XP/size on the front guy's character sheet. I did the same thing at first, ended up switching 3rd and 4th guys right away.
What's with people who answer their own questions? I guess they're just stupid.

I will change that. Never really noticed it because I use "C" to cast spell (which doesn't scroll back to the caster) and the right click to get the shoot option, which also doesn't scroll.

Another suggestion: after picking a spell, when you hover over your target with the icon, target details no longer appear.

Yes this is also good. Proposed by Xalles a bit earlier. % to hit for ranged touch spells also a nice idea.

Wow! I would kill for that. I basically avoid ranged touch spells because they're so unreliable.
