My question is - is there a big downside to this? For those of you who have these keys bound to strafe, don't you still need to hold the right mouse button in order to turn the character and make sure you are still facing the opponent? There is something I am not seeing here... Is there a difference?
How do you prefer to use focus target? On healer (for Intervene), or on enemies?
The only time I seem to use focus now is for watching the Spriests MC on thorim and on algalon himself, since i generally have other things targeted when not tanking them so makes being able to see when i need to switch and targeting easier.
Well, one use for Focus that I was contemplating was in a fight with spellcasters (especially if he won't go down immediately, like heroics where he could be a boss with adds. Or with multiple spellcasters in a group). You could focus the spellcaster just to make sure their portrait remains visible while targeting other enemies. If they start casting you would know even if targeting the add and could do a Heroic Throw, Shield Bash or put up a Spell Reflect...
