Description

Share this:

When the right mouse button is bound to "mouse look", you may accidentally change your target during combat: when you hold down the right mouse button to change camera and player direction while (accidentally) hovering a minor mob, but don't move the mouse enough, WoW will treat it as if you had simply right clicked the mob.

I discovered the problem while tanking, but I guess it applies to melee DPS players as well. Still, most people I spoke to did not seem to know that problem; I suppose it's a matter of habit whether you do such mouse moves.

Anyway: if you lose your target seemingly at random, this addon may help.

Usage

  • During combat:

    • As its name implies, the addon simply suppresses any single right clicks, without disabling mouse look.
    • If you want to interact with an in-world element or start auto attacks, perform a double click with the right mouse button instead of a single click.
  • Outside of combat:

    • Single right clicks work as usual to start auto attacks or to interact with NPCs, loot and the like.

Many thanks to Urzulan for suggesting the double-clicking solution and the current algorithm which is way simpler than the old approach.
