Effectively Using Guild Wars Maps

You can also double click on the map to highlight a specific point for your party – useful in pointing out bosses or major goals.When your party leader targets a specific enemy (using CTRL-double click when targeting) this will be highlighted on the map with a flashing red dot. You will also see a speech bubble appear above the party leader announcing that they have targeted this specific enemy. This can be used to point out a key enemy or boss that needs to be taken out quickly or avoided. Calling targets in this way is also used to direct the attacks of your henchmen and heroes.
