Basic understanding about Re:Build target system


#1

Server: Silute
Team name: Alyu

With the recent Re:Build changes, some people still struggle with picking the right ally when healing or ressing. This guide is for those players.

The new Targeting system added with the Re:Build is quite simple, once you use a skill that uses the system, you will receive a wheel to pick a target. You can click on one of the wheel directions and release it to pick an ally, press the used skill button to target yourself or the jump buttom to cancel and not use the skill. So far, so simple, right?

  • The biggest struggle is identifying the correct ally. Knowing the order of the wheel might help.

The top ally(up butom) is always the first ally on your party windown order and the rest follow this order in counterclockwise. The second ally will be at left, third at bottom and forth at the right side.

1

This order is always right except when an ally is not in the same map as the skill user. If that happens, the ally is skipped in the order and a blank slot is left at the end. Let’s say you are in Orsha in a party while the first ally is outside of the town. When you use a skill with the target system, you will notice the first ally was skipped and the order continues without them leaving a blank space at the end.

2

If the target leave the map and returns, they will be placed at the last position too, so pay attention to that.

  • So, what about the range?
    That’s something people don’t notice at first but the range is infinite as long as you are in the same map.
  • I tried to heal but my ally wasn’t healed?
    Most of the cases are Zealots using Fanaticism, Bullet Markers using Blood Overdrive or Assassins using Annihilation but, in some case, I had allies not being healed that weren’t even those classes. There is 2 cases that it can happen. You either was too laggy and had the skill used or your ally is in another channel but shows at the Target Wheel.

  • I want to cast my heal/buff on someone outside my party, how do I do it?
    You can’t. After Re:Build, skills using the target system can’t be used players outside your party.

  • I can’t use my skill on myself!
    Some joystick users may have this problem. If you put your skill and use it with the jump button, you won’t be able to cast it on yourself. The buttom to use your skill is the same to cancel and the game cancel it instead of using. Try to change its position.

  • I can’t target my shogoth with Rune of giant!
    You shouldn’t be able to. To use Rune of Giant on your Shoggoth simple use it on yourself or an ally.
  • I can’t pick an ally with the wheel.
    Some people reported that they can’t choose an ally because of the bidding keys. Simple edit them under the combat tab at the key bindings.

Just a quick note for your guide, if people have changed the key bindings for movement like myself, there’s new keys input under the combat tab that you have to set to the same movement keys that you have changed to for the target wheel to work properly.

I didn’t know that part, I’ll edit them in soon. Logging at the game right now to get the pictures and video for the guide. Thanks.

Therefor the new targeting system is not about aligning yourself with your allies that you intend to heal, rather it is pressing the right corresponding target key in the party?

First member - Up
Second member - Left
Third member - Down
Fourth member - Right

How about healing guild members which is more than 5 people in a raid. How to select your target.

Please correct me if I misunderstood your guide. All this time I thought we need to be in the right position to heal, like healing your ally above you, press up. Haha this helps a lot. I gotta try it out.

@Dandu
You can’t heal allies outside your party with heal or buff them with skills that use this system. To heal allies outside your party, you must use Mass Heal.

With Boruta coming up, we will be able to use some party only skills on guildmates. I’m not 100% sure if that affects all skills since I don’t have a KTest account to test it but it seems skills like Tree of Sephiroth and Indulgencia will work on guildmates in the raid.


#6

@Enkii I tested here and had no trouble with my changed keys. The new up key triggered my skills and I had to configure nothing else.


#7

Strange, for me personally I had to, the new keys were set to [none] and I use the numpad keys to move (I’ve bound to 1235). Before, when I used my settings, the wheel would just select a target and not heal. I figured I could still use arrow keys to make it work until someone told me about the new key binding and that made it work when I changed to the same as with my settings.

Also, have you tested with someone in the party?


#8

I just tried it. And it works. This guide is very helpful. Hope you win!


#9

Added info about Allies returning to the map, BMs using Bloody Overdriver and different channel targets.

  1. Click on Heal skill
  2. Wheel appears
  3. Click on party member
  4. ?

Sorry, but since re:build got released, I’ve never been able to heal anyone with my cleric. Never. There must be an extra step to be done somewhere, because the wheel simply doesn’t work. You can select up/down/left/right but the wheel stays on and you’re stuck unless you press Heal again which targets yourself instead of your party members. Does this only work with controller? Do you have to remap keyboard keys? I’d like to know because currently I feel pretty useless when I play my cleric…


#11

Some people reported that they had to remap the keyboard keys. Check your keyboard commands and see if there is 2 up,left and so on keys. As said above, I had no problem since the keys were bidded correct for me without editing it but some others weren’t for some reason. Also, you must release your key not just hold it. Had a few cases that people were holding the key and clicking the button too.

I’ll add this information too now.


#12

I’ll check that tonight. I’m using the numpad keys (8/2/4/6) which trigger the selection on the wheel but not the actual skill effect. The arrow keys (up/down/left/right) don’t work at all. Maybe they’re not mapped properly.


#13

I confirm that you have to remap your keys in mouse mode: move up/down/left/right is not mapped to the arrow keys, but to W/A/S/D. After that, using the arrow keys trigger Heal skill fine.


#14

Worst thing about new target system is lag making you hit yourself instead of someone else :expressionless:

It’s annoying to explain to someone they have to wait CD cause instead of using the skill on them I wasted it :pensive:
