World of Warcraft is indeed getting a new ping system in Patch 10.1.7. This is a highly requested feature by the community, and it will be a welcome addition to the game.
The new ping system will allow players to quickly and easily communicate with their party members about important information, such as the location of enemies, objectives, or dangerous areas. It will also be useful for coordinating group activities, such as raids and dungeons.
The ping system is accessed by pressing the default keybind G, but players can also rebind it to another key. When you press the keybind, your mouse cursor will turn blue and a wheel of different ping options will appear. You can then select the type of ping you want to use and drag your cursor to the location you want to ping.
The different types of pings available include:
- Assist: This ping tells your party members to attack the target you are pinging.
- On my way: This ping lets your party members know that you are headed to the location you are pinging.
- Danger: This ping warns your party members of a dangerous area or enemy.
- Loot: This ping marks a location for loot.
- Follow me: This ping tells your party members to follow you.
The new ping system is a great way to improve communication in World of Warcraft. It will be especially useful for players who are new to the game or who are playing with players who do not speak the same language. I am sure that it will be a welcome addition to the game.
Here are some additional details about the new ping system:
- The ping system will be available in all game modes, including dungeons, raids, PvP, and the open world.
- The ping system can be customized to your liking. You can change the keybind, the color of the pings, and the opacity of the ping wheel.
- The ping system will be available in the Public Test Realm (PTR) soon, so players can test it out and provide feedback.
