Give us some kind of clicky, ddo store item, or whatever that will paint a single party member for a brief period of time, "for a raid or other situation that needs it," maybe make it so the user can toggle it as needed. This would help tremendously in raids where we have wide open spaces to roam around in and teamwork/staying together/following one target/etc. is needed. Just something bright and obvious would suffice so we can all get on one target and not lose our party member with all the other mob effects and colors bursting around us.

Please make the Dynastic Falcata either use Str or Char, whichever is higher. Put something spiffy on it to compete with chaos blade as well, its rival. eg. Chaosblade has vorpal and vampirism, idk, put cursespewing and something else on it.

Isn't pressing F1-12 to target them enough?

No, not for everyone, not with all the other colors and effects going off at the same time.


1. Yeah maybe they're already looking at it, idk. Hopefully they consider the str/cha option at the very least.

You can highlight a players "dot" on the minimap, for instance the healer... When you enter a quest and start buffing next time, try to ask him/her to step a bit to the side and click on his dot. It should mark it with a yellow circle, and iirc even give you a directional arrow if he is outside of your minimap.

I must admit I rarely use that feature, so not sure if it is still working... Hope it sort of does what you are requesting 8)

I get what you're trying to say. In lord of blades for instance, it would be beneficial to mark one player as lead trash killer and have everyone follow them around. Makes it easier on the healers. I'll often toss the artificer buff on them that puts the big glowy orb around them to make it clear to other players who to follow. Sadly, that buff doesn't last all that long. You could make a level 1 spell that basically "marks" a target with a big X over their head or something similar, whether it be friend or foe, just to make certain things more clear. Also in Lord of Blades for instance, you might want to keep one of the trash mobs alive in order to get all party members up before the last round. Marking that mob takes some of the guesswork out of it. Making it a level 1 spell and possibly adding it to scroll vendors and clickies would make it widely available to anyone that would need it.

I think I see now.

Something like "Dancing Lights" or "Faerie Fire" as a cantrip, 0th level magic with no effect other than marking something. Available to all casters for 1sp, as an eternal wand, or as a missile weapon so anyone can use it.

Yeah, I can see how that would be useful.

This is exactly what I mean, just something to mark/paint a party member etc. for visual guidance.
