View Full Version : Item Sets

03-05-2011, 08:41 PM
After playing for some time as a rogue with high UMD and have a toolbar set up with my UMD items as well as item sets for multiple other purposes one day it struck me. Why do we have weapon sets, but not item sets? This seemed somewhat surprising to me after some thought because many people I know have multiple hot bars set up with items that are used for specific situations. UMD for scrolls is a major one, but I can envision multiple situations where one may want an item set that they can click on one hot bar item rather than multiple.

This addition would be great for me since I tend to lag with each item I click on, and a single button lag would make life a lot easier (especially when swooping in to save someone in battle).

I envision 5 item sets consisting of up to 5 items and could include: Ring slot 1 (left), Ring slot 2 (right), boots, gloves, bracers, helm, trinket, necklace, eye-wear, cloak or belt.

With rings it would operate the same as weapon sets; the first ring put in the set goes to the primary (right) hand and a subsequent ring goes to the left. Any of the other items in the set would just change when the set is activated.

This would NOT include armor, outfits or robes due to the equip time needed for light/medium/heavy armor.

I have seen this suggested by several other people: Dimicron (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?p=1621680&highlight=item+sets#post1621680), Durnak (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=274407&highlight=item+sets) and Failedlegend (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=285105&highlight=item+sets) and all received positive response.

I would love to hear the thoughts of the community and or the devs on such an idea :)

There must be some significant reason that this isn't implemented. Casters have long begged for the ability to add a spell/meta combo to their toolbars, which should be implemented first.

Maybe it's a lag issue?

If nothing else, I would at least like to pick what finger (or should I say hand?)
that I can hot swap a ring on. Its always the darn left (or is it right?). What if I want to switch the other finger, HRM!

/Signed. Meta-magic spells on hotbars would also be very nice.

/signed, especially on the setting of metamagics for specific spells.
