Its funny that you have chosen a spec that does not have ground target spells! lets see someone with controller play fire mage on aoe, or any other classes that have regular use of ground target spells!I still dont understand why they dont let us macro these spells and use them ... Removed/
Longtime controller user due to RSI here, just adding my 2cents.I really like the new features for Interact and Action Target; removes a lot of work that was needed to play before, though they're not for everyone.I'm an active member on the Consoleport discord (the big controller addon that deserves more credit, and from where the headline image for this article comes - the default UI has no such interface) and the features get talked about a lot:Action Target is great, but doesn't pair well with the Target Scan Enemy (Hold) binding, which is the best way to hard-target with a controller. It seems Bliz may have routed the feature through it, so Target Scan doesn't override the soft target as one would expect.The Interact key is my favourite feature, but many users still prefer the old Consoleport version that could share a binding with spells or Jump through clever use Conditions.The Hold to Cast feature is currently unuseable with Bar addons (Consoleport has a Bar module) because Bliz have tried to limit it to keyboard presses only, which seems like a very odd decision on their part.The default controller support is nice, and it's great to see updates for it, but I still wouldn't dream of playing without the Consoleport Addon, which doesn't get the recognition it deserves.
I find the biggest hurdles to controller play are:- The UI; it's just not designed for controllers, easier to use the mouse usually.- The lack of any tutorial for controller play; it's nice that support is there but there's no walkthrough or anything for new players or people wanting to try out controller. Or even much mention ingame or on the official sites that it is an option.It all has to be looked up or asked about on discords / forums. And if you somehow miss Consoleport in your googling, then you're in for a hard time.And the biggest- Other players.Many players cannot imagine how playing on a controller is possible, or think it inherently worse than KB+M, so any mention of being on one often leads to a kick from a pug group :(It does take practice, and some creative thinking, to perform well on controller. But it is very doable - I play M+ and Raids and do just fine, my brother Tanks high-end keys and Raids and does brilliantly.Movement is far easier, and (especially with paddle controllers) our many keybinds are easier to reach while moving. I have 96 binds, all at my fingertips, and all useable with my thumb on the movement stick, I'd applaud any KB+M user that can equal that without turning their hands into pretzels.But many people reject what they don't understand. :(
I wish he showed mythic sanctum of domination healed with controlled, oh wait, that would be disaster
They have been doing a good job... but the game is still TOO MUCH reliant on a mouse, from entire skills and rotations up to bosses mechanics to not get wiped and not forget the menu itselfthey have a long way to go but is still plausible to fix those problems... but other might need a new expansions to get fixed
so how do we push big keys with people using a controller ?
No matter how much ppl want to sugarcoat it here, just like how a controller player facing a keyboard+mouse player in a shooter shows, the two are just not even in the same universe. I might start a witchhunt with the hot take, but IMO this is just now worth it. Hamstringing and handicapping yourself like that is dumb. You don't eat soap with a fork either. Just doesn't work like that.
i will absolutely not have a single controller player in my group
I have been playing WoW for almost 18 years, a few years ago i switched over to Controller and I never went back. This changed my gaming experience a LOT.In fact i dont think i would still be playing WoW if i had not discovered Consoleport.I never post here normally but on this topic i really had to saythat only this addon makes the game playable on a Controller.Several times so far when i saw changes made by Blizzard aboutController-friendliness i tried them out but every time i went backto Consoleport shortly after because theres no way they even come closeto the job Consoleport is doing.
