Curious if A. this would be possible B. if it already exists and C.  it would be against the TOS

Basically a UI add-on that draws rings at various ranges in a circle around your character (like the necro plague form does).  If you've played Eve Online then it would be sort of like the Tactical Overlay.

I wanted this for a few reasons
A. make fast ground targeting spells easier to place
B. let me know when I should switch weapons/kits/attunements due to the range changing or else modify my character's path to stay in ideal range

That simply does not apply to PVE.

That being said, this would probably better off seeing this as an offical anet feature.
Hotjoin would more than likely have it on.
Tournaments would have it off by default
And private tournaments could be setup however the owner wishes.

Unfair Advanage removed completely...

EDIT: Appropriate avatar for your short and well thought out comment.

They want this to be a skill based game

That's why there aren't no activation bars on enemies
That's why skills don't tell you how long it takes to cast
That's why your character doesn't run into range to auto attack or to cast a skill if the enemy gets is to far.

You have to do all the work and figure it out.

EDIT: Appropriate avatar showing that you want things easy, because changing the default was to difficult for you to figure out.

Yes it would be against the ToS.

And this being suggested as an add-on, it would be an unfair advantage.

So basically treat GW2 as other MMOs that don't allow add-ons, got it.
