Tera has no lock-on system. If GW2 doesn't, either, then perhaps they are similar.

Compare for yourself by trying Tera for free.

While there is "locked on" targeting in GW2 (As in, a specific mob's health appears in the UI hud), one pretty much auto-targets the mobs the player is facing, and continues to do so as you mow down the mobs. Any mobs close by will get hit too (unless, at range, you purposely use a single target shot). The only time you'd really use tab (or click a specific mob) would be to switch targets that are sort of in range but have trash mobs in front of them (like a boss)... and from a long range, which mob you want to pick off first (if the auto targeted one isn't the mob you want), unless you are going to pull with an AOE shot.

It sort of sounds like GW2 is a hybrid, since every class can hit multiple mobs, yet have targeting.
