# 1 target assist

so now that target assit no longer works with heals, how much of a differnece will this make in pvp for healers? every heal (except extend it seems) needs to have a target selected or else it goes of on yourself.

thoughts? intended, accident?

Well, since that's how I normally play, I don't notice a difference :p

Seriously though, how did you heal with Target Assist? I realize that your heal will go to whichever friendly your target is shooting at, but what about when you need to heal yourself? F1?

I have my heals set up on my f1-f4 keys to include targeting the correct teammate. of course, I'm also a crappy healer...

I could never get accustomed to using that assist setting so I had to disable it pretty early on. Is this a fix of some sort, or a mistake?

better be a mistake,, its very useful when a target comes out of cloak.. instead of manually targeting this persons target u heal "through" him to his target.. you cant really waste any seconds as a healer when those alphas hit.

im assuming its a bug, because the discription says it affects heals and attacks.

well if this was a fix it was for a issue that hasn't been mentioned in these past 1.5 years.

Thats annoying, I'll often throw a heal on a friend via target assist while I'm shooting whoever is shooting them. Must admit I could use a quick way to toggle on/off target assist though, I've been killed many times because I sent a heal to a friend when I needed it. I know I could just turn target assist off but then it makes it harder to heal a friend while still shooting the main target.
