View Full Version : Quivers, Hotbars and You

I seems to me pretty ridiculous that arrows and bolts in your backpack (i.e. normal inventory) can be assigned to hot-keys but not if they are in your quiver.

After all, the point of a quiver is to have your arrows readily available for easy access. As it is, switching arrow types in the middle of combat is a royal pain in the posterior.

Yes, I could just keep the arrows in my normal inventory...but that kinda defeats the purpose of a quiver and takes up precious loot space.

Ideally, arrows in your equipped quiver should be assignable to hot-keys and when you switch arrows types, they get put back in the equipped quiver...swapping places with the arrows you've just switched to.

Alternatively, the equipped quiver itself could be assignable to a hot-key and then work in a similar mechanic to the way a resist energy wand or summon monster spell works...with a window that pops up showing the arrows in the quiver, allowing you to drag them to a hot-bar.

I have had similar thoughts, but haven't come up with a solution that would be fast enough. The problem seems to be the arrows that are already equipped. Even if you could switch quivers from the hotbar, it wouldn't change the arrows equipped (unless it could - to the first one in the quiver).

On a semi-related note, I have always wondered why ingredient bags do not have the same up/down arrows that quivers do. It would be nice to organize my shroud ingredients a little bit http://forums.ddo.com/images/icons/icon6.gif

coupla threads on the topic:


and yes, as a ranger I wholeheartedly agree.
