For me the use of numlock as a automatic recast of skills is new. I read about it here and there but did not recognize what it is and if it’s useful.
I use the numlock autocast actually on my FG for recasting RoS when it is out of cool down. This way it is like an Aura that is near to always on. I use it on my AoD Lich, too, for recasting Wandering Souls.
I have to admit this is kind of lazy. But for me it is a real improvement. I can concentrate on other things and playing feels less hectic.
My question is how the devs feel about this. This function was not possible I’d make a suggestion post about the ability to toggle autocast on and off for certain skills.
I don’t hope it is seen as cheating to use the numlock for autocast. It is similar to using keyboard scripts.
I assume the devs designed the skills this way to make the combat more active. But I’d prefer an autocast or always on mechanic for skills that are aura like instead of having to recast them manually.
