Just had the [Dis] Pleasure of doing the garlic quest
What a nightmare in action mode.

Yes im aware they recommend not using action mode as a wiz but i hate all the moving about with right mouse

I ended up having to swop to standard mode take of my staff after i activated mana shield and use my fists and stand there and let them hit me whilst i clicked or tried till i got it done.
Worst quest by far for me.

When i changed to standard mode i couldnt use my left and right mouse spells?
How do people play in standard mode, i hadnt got a clue as i dont/never used it before.

How is it supposed to work?

    You cast your spells with the number keys 1..2..3... like in every other mmo :)
    You may as well right-click the icons in your toolbar to launch a skill.
    This is not a shooter or diablo where you have only 1 spell for each mousebutton.

    You select your target by right-click (with autoattack) or simply with the tab key.

    So the current LMB + RMB would need to go on the bars at the bottom?

    Yes, I cant imagine playing my wiz on action mode. It is just what you are used to and preference really. I just hate the tabbing and target selection on action mode and it feels a lot easier for me on standard.

    I honestly don't know how people play with standard mode. I am a wizard and i still play in action mode...much easier to kite for me. Sadly for me, tabbing doesn't work in action mode and i find it sometimes hard to find a target when there is a lot of dead bodies which is a bit annoying. it's how I am used to playing every single mmo since WoW.

    I usually like action mode, but I hate it in this game. Absolutely hate it. Standard mode for me. Targeting in the this game is my biggest complaint about game play.
