Topic Subject: controlling characters?
posted 11-08-06 07:14 AM EDT (US)   
after playing merc i'm now playing BW veteran
my party is 2 dual wielders, 1 blood assassin, 1 cm and 1 nm
mages are lvl 72, the rest 70

unlike DS where you could choose different modes of play for each character, in DSII and BW there are just mirror, rampage and wait modes
i'm wondering for quite some time now how to give a specific command (like a specific target) to one character while the rest aimes at another target
the wait mode comes close to what i'd like, but i have no control of what the other chars do while i'm busy with my main char
for instance, in wait mode i let my blood assassin target the surgeon, but when i switch to my main dual wielder char to fight the crawlers, my blood assassin stops attacking
i'm not a very experienced player but i get along slowly
thanks for your help

In DS2 you only get to control one character at a time... the others are controlled by the game's AI (Rampage, Mirror...). Yes, this is cause for frequent complaint by DS1 fans, but that is the way the game works... sorry.

In addition to rampage, mirror, and wait, there is also a "defend" mode. Like "wait," it isn't initially assigned to a hotkey.

I've never used it, so I don't know the effects.
