View Full Version : Selection of NPCs by mouse

One of the things that bugs me about how the UI works in DDO is how easy it is to accidentally select NPCs while in combat.

Some examples of this are Ana in CITW and Brawnpits in A Small Problem. It's very easy to get interrupted in combat when one of these guys runs in front of your cursor and you start talking to him/her accidentally. It's even worse when there's more than one NPC on screen and they are also mixed up in combat.

I think it would be really useful if there was a setting which enabled/disabled the selection of NPCs by mouse. It might also be useful to have another key set aside which you can use at the same time as the mouse to let you more deliberately select an NPC.

If there is already a way to do something like this I'd be glad to hear it, but I haven't been able to work it out myself.
