Simplify method of applying divine link

I'm a big fan of designing interfaces in a way that avoids unnecessary keystrokes and mouse actions.

Currently to apply Divine Link to a pet we have to
* charge the skill, typically by clicking a hot key
* click the summoned pet to apply it.

I suggest the 2nd step should be unnecessary, since there is only one possible target for the skill: the currently summoned pet. Clicking the hot key should be enough to make both steps happen automatically.

Currently the 2nd step can be troublesome. One example is when waiting at the entry to a busy dungeon where lots of players have pets summoned, such as the new Mag Mell dungeons. When there are multiple parties waiting, it can be difficult to find your own pet amongst the masses. Another example is small pets like the mini-hamster and some of the fairies like Blaanid. These pets can be hard to click on even when there aren't other players blocking the view. Even when you zoom in to make the pet a bigger target these can be hard to click on, since their status icons overlap the pet, and clicking on the status icon doesn't seem to work. It's even worse when the pet hovers in an unpredictable manner like Blaanid. Any chagne that eliminates the need to actually click on the pet is a good one.
  1. Should the need to click on a pet to apply Divine Link be removed.4 votes

    2. No - I like unnecessary clicks since I'm working on an RSI compensation claim.

    Sounds smart.

    Usually holding Alt to see your pet's name can make it a little easier to click small pets amidst the chaos, but that can even be less reliable if there's lots of names all shifting around or can't even be done in the case of your Fynni Fynn pet which doesn't have a name above its head to use this method.
