On wow live I had an unreleased addon to tweak two CVar s.
(it's unreleased because I didn't want to bother adding options and making it fit for public consumption)
Controls the range at which [tab] (or whatever key you have bound to target nearest enemy)
will pickup targets in the frontal cone.
Controls the radius of said frontal cone. (how wide it will be)
Both of those CVars had restrictions enforced on them regarding upper limit (50) in patch 2.3,
but they can still be set in-game within those acceptable limits.
They've been commonly used to up the tab target range for ranged classes (like hunters etc)
however I was using it in a more generic (occasionally the opposite) way.
A default tab-target range doesn't make sense for all classes/roles.
Example: A tank wants [tab] to pick mobs in melee range when in combat,
and not have to cycle through irrelevant mobs from the next un-engaged group down the corridor
that happens to be in the frontal cone.
Anyway, with a bit of background on to the actual question and request:
Those 2 CVars (along with a few more) have been removed from the 3.x client.
The official thread with the actual observed changes mentions nothing specific to those 2.
Many more CVar changes are missing from the listing as well.
- Is the removal intentional?
- Will it carry over to the live 3.x version?
- Will we have another way to tweak the tab targeting range (within limits set by Blizzard ofc)
or is this to be handled entirely on default values?
Thanks in advance to anyone with US account that would post the question on the UI and Macros forum.
