I'm leveling another char and I often have problems to find the right mob for my quest, because of the surrounding (trees, hills, bushes etc.) or because he is surrounded by many other mobs ("find orc X beetween groups of orc Y and Z).
I use "/target mob XY", but this often means: Now I know that there is mob XY in the area, but I still can't see him properly.
When I'm in a group, I can put a raid symbol over his head which is quite nice and clearly visible... but often I'm not in a group, so I can't do that.
When I'm not in a group, I disable the NPC names, so only the highlighted mob has a name over his head. This works better than looking for the small red/yellow circle on the ground, but it's still not that great.
Does anybody know if there is an addon which can help me to find the mobs I seek? Perhaps it would put a big symbol over the NPC's head, or show it's location on the minimap, or at least an arrow ("go to this direction to find the mob you seek").
You could always roll a hunter and use hunter's mark. :P
Sorry, I don't know of any add-ons that can do this but always thought a directional indicator would be nice. In DAoC, I used to use /face but there's nothing like that in WoW that I know of. I don't play a hunter exclusively so I do miss not having a way to mark targets sometimes.
