Fix the targeting bugs already.

How many more weeks are you going to allow this crippling bug to persist?

If it was a bug that somehow benefited players it'd have been hotfixed immediately yet here we are 3 weeks later without a word on an ETA for a fix for it.

I'm sick of randomly targeting mobs when I try to use an ability or targeting corpses whenever I tab.

As a tank constantly cycling through targets it is beyond frustrating having to put up with this crap.
I've been leveling a Paladin alt recently and this random targeting nonsense is really getting on my nerves.
agreed
Sometimes you don't even have to use tab. When I'm tanking and use Hammer of the Righteous, it'll target a dead mob. No Tab involved.
It is an odd bug. I've been switching targets just fine and then bam can't use any special abilites because of targeting an already dead mob. Even weirder at the same time I will be auto-attacking a mob that is alive and not marked as my target.

Fix please. I noticed this today doing solo runs of old dungeons. Highly irritating.
Our programmers and QA analysts are working on this. There are actually a few unique targeting issues which are all documented and being investigated independently, as they're technically unrelated.

It has very little to do with bug priorities, or our willingness to fix what you think we think isn't a big deal. Each bug entered into the system is a unique case and requires any number of verification methods. The process for properly identifying and addressing a bug is no more or less important depending on the type/severity of the bug.

It's also worth keeping in mind that some bugs can be addressed via a hotfix fairly easily, while others cannot be fixed without releasing a client patch. And no matter how minor the patch, building and releasing it globally is still a major logistical undertaking.

The issue specifically with targeting dead targets will require a client-side patch to address.
I'll say; it makes tanking on my DK a real pain when I go to hit Pestilence and only spread one disease because the other one ended up on someone else.
Thanks for a response. This has been bugging me lately.
Wondered about this. It'll be nice to not keep swinging at corpses after mobs die.
