Do you need to back peddle as a tank?

You can keyboard turn while selecting or mouseover targeting a raid member or mob.

I'm not sure how you would mouse turn while using the keyboard to select someone nearly as quickly.

For a warrior it is very usefull.

if you charged with my latency you`d be very annoyed without backpeddle. I`m always inside the boss or mob. i have to walk back a bit just to make sure they are in front of me.

Also lining mobs up in a cone shape for shockwave is backpeddle material.

You just strafe, I can't think of any scenario where you would need to turn so badly you couldn't strafe.

Even then, strafing with a quick mouseover then an even faster mouse turn.

not having backpeddle as a tank is ludicrous

same goes for any tank that unbinds keyboard turn because "keyboard turning is bad"

you often need to make fine or slow adjustments to boss or add positions.


Confirmed for idiot


You've never encountered the pathing bug, nor had to strafe, target a specific target and reposition all within the space of a few milliseconds?

Confirmed for idiot.

You're hitting two buttons too many.

"S" IS Backpedal.
