most of the time i play my cleric, and have 18 dv's that i can give out. but in this process, time is wasted. i think it would be great to have a "give all" button. it would take only one click and not give my fingers a cramp.

One of the key elements to DVs though is that i does take time... you can't just dump em out in the middle of a fight without sacrificing time (and therefore heals/offensive casting). It serves as a counterbalance against what would otherwise be overpowered IMO.

It is not a bad idea to be able to give all or a give qty type thing but there could be a timer built into the function so it gives them at a rate of 1 every 3 secs or whatever the normal time would be and like a spell its interuptable or can fail something like that. Usually when I see clerics giving out dv's its usually between battles and between shrines.

Good idea just need to make sure it doesnt turn into the dv easy button!!!

a better solution would be implementing macros.

simply a bar (like the shortcut bars) that could be hot keyed.

you would then drag in feats/enhancements/clickies as you currently do.

on the assigned key press it would work through the bar left to right performing the next action as the timer allows.

something everyone would enjoy.

wiz/clr = for easy buffing
mnk = for finishers
rog = easier changing between fighting and trapping gear...
