| Mob HP bars |
Adding an option to toggle HP bars displayed above mobs would help significantly improve my ability to differentiate between random mobs and players in my party. Along with the upgrade of the targeting system. Which I'm sure they're already working considering the general consensus of the beta players.

| click-to-move |


I was told by a player in-game that I'm able to disable the click-to-move feature through the key bindings menu but I've gone through it multiple times and haven't been able to find it. If it's available it would make it allot easier for me. I've never liked that kind of mechanic.

| Add-Ons |
I haven't played any other Perfect World games so I was wondering what PW is going to do about Add-ons. Minimalists, don't bother flaming me for liking over-the-top customization. :P I have very specific needs!(that's what she said). I'm not hating on their job on the UI; it's very nice but I neeeeeed it man.

So basically I'm asking: Whether or not they're going to be allowed and if so to what extent.

    As far **** add-ons, im pretty sure they dont allow you to use any program whatsoever to change gameplay and its bannable if you do. Even if it is something external like a aggro meter or w/e it would be violating their terms i think.

    This game is Click-To-Move + Move-With-Keys

    You have the option to bind the second one and choose which one to use.

    That game is not a Move With Keys only, And will never be.

    If it will "never be" a wasd-only based movement game then they better be planning on fixing that targeting system.

    Good suggestions. Personally, I really just want an aggro meter...so used to having them in other games and it's really helpful to be able to tell someone to slow down if they''re catching up, or to let me know when to pop my cooldowns and stuff. Right now, if you're tanking, you just have to mash buttons and hope that you don't run out of mana.

    What's wrong with giving you the option to disable click to move? >.>

    Exactly. click to move is fine for grinding quests and what not. It's really nice being able to click the map to move to places, but when it comes to instances and having to target a specific mob in a group of 5+ it's annoying as hell to miss click and start charging towards the wrong mob. Tabbing around can send you into another group very easily.
    Needless to say if the devs have any interest in keeping ex wow players (Which is a great market to get into these days) they may want to consider evolving the UI.
    We're subscription players who will happily pay to support a game like this game which has many great aspects.
    I understand it's still beta and hope that they improve on the frustrating UI which is probably the only thing holding it back from being a very high ranked and profitable mmo.
    I would suggest having an option to see party targets too and be able to select that box. So you can see who is attacking what mobs and target those mobs quickly. As a former prot warrior being able to change my UI (along with a threat meter) to see that was essential and improved everyone's game play experience when it came to pug groups.

    Perfect world (the "main game) has already the option ....

    why isnt implemented in FW is beyond me...........

    trying to click a npc and clicking far away is frustrating,or trying to click on quests things and clicking on a wall >.>

    Click to move is optional ... wtf , if u dont like click to move then get ur hands off your mouse and use WSAD ... no one is forcing u to click to move ... in all games there should be both options , FW is perfect with the movement system it has both for half the players who want 1 than the other ... period. stop crying in forum just to satisfy your needs complain about other things :mad:

    I would like to see interface addons. Allowing you to customize health bars and other things. Just look at Dhud for Wow. It gives you health bars around your character like large brackets, allowing you to keep your eye on what's happening on the battle field while seeing your health status at all times. This is especialy important when it comes to pvp. This would not affect the game play in anyway.
