  • [dev1035] Players can now select from among two different targeting modes.

      Target/Menu Navigation Keys and Corresponding Actions
    Up/Down Left/Right
    Targeting Mode A Cycle through party members Cycle through all targets
    Targeting Mode B Cycle through targeting filters Cycle through valid targets
    * Activating targeting mode A will set the target filter to All.
    * Activating targeting mode B will make the All target filter inaccessible.
    * Targeting modes can also be activated using the /targetmode (/tmode) text command.
    /targetmode(/tmode) [subcommand]
    a Switch to targeting mode A
    b Switch to targeting mode B
    Toggle between targeting mode A and B when no subcommand is specified.
    * Targeting mode A is the default targeting mode. Targeting mode settings are saved upon logging out of the game.

Fixed Bugs

  • Following bugs have been addressed:
    • A bug wherein on the sidequest “Have You Seen My Son,” the item White Ash cannot be obtained from Bomb Embers that die as a result of their own ‘Explosion’ attack.
    • A bug wherein on the levequest “Salmon Superior,” hostile monsters from another sidequest may spawn.
    • A bug wherein the FINAL FANTASY XIV client will forcefully shutdown when a player begins crafting while still eating.
    • A bug wherein executing certain text commands will cause target graphics, such as nameplates, to disappear.
    • A bug wherein if a player attempts to execute a macro while another macro is being executed, it will not execute until the initial macro is complete.

I really don't like them ******** with the targeting system, the last one took a minute to get used to but in the long run worked well, now I have to relearn the system for it all over

Well they're not really taking anything away as far as I can tell. They're giving you a choice between two schemes: the new one recently added to FFXIV in the last update and the old one originally used by FFXIV which is also currently used in FFXI.
