Rather than attempt to match speeds with a landscape mob (mounted) on my warsteed using the “W” and “S” keys, I’ve found a much better method – not using them at all.
What I do is map a hot bar button to the “/follow” command. You can do this by typing the following:
/shortcut ## /follow
… where ## is the position in the shortcut bar. You can always move it once it is created, but it will overwrite a current shortcut if you don’t put it in a blank spot to being with.
So, at the outset of the fight with a mounted enemy, I will click on them, then click on this shortcut. If the enemy is at a distance, my steed will approach at max speed. As soon as the enemy runs, this will keep me at the enemy’s speed and I will ride right next to them – until I adjust the speed or the course manually (which will disengage the follow).
Hope this assists you with your combat!
Layanor – I have found this to be a great tip when I am tanking or DPS on a warband. I can follow right behind them and they never turn around. They just walk slow and normally cant do much about me being behind them.
