I keep looking at threads discussing hotbars, and seeing all these hotbars on people's screens. And I find myself thinking that most of you must not use "mouse look" mode when moving around. Is that a fair assumption though? I come from an FPS background so I'm used to WASD for movement and the mouse controlling my direction. Which makes things like the Protection spells a nuisance, as I have to basically stand still, hit the T key, hit the 1-0 key for the spell, then double-click on the particular element I want to protect from, then hit the T key again to go back to moving and fighting.
So I'm guessing that none of you guys are using the mouse to control your character, but are simply using it to click hotbars. Is that a true assessment or is there some super ninja technique of clicking hotbar items and such while still mouse moving?
Bars 1, 2 and part of 3 are mapped to my gamepad.
Bars 20 and 7 have my main items with their alternates next to them for ease of swapping.
Beyond that, the rest of the bars tend to occupy the same positions across all my characters, but have different purposes.

I am a left hander who searched for a gaming mouse that WASN'T right handed. I don't use the hot keys. Everything I do is point and click.
Instead of pressing T to enter ML mode, I would just stay in mouselook mode by holding the appropriate mouse button at almost all times, letting go of it when I needed to manually click a bar, and holding it once again when I was finished.
Or letting go, tapping it to grab a target, and then begin holding it again.
I'd cramp my hand if I tried to stay in Mouse Look mode by holding the button down, but that may also be an FPS holdover as I tend to be looking around a lot. Also a side effect of trying to maximize XP by finding all the breakables along the way; you often have to look in all the little alcoves, and sometimes behind you as well.
One thing I probably should do and have not yet is really figure out how keybinding works and bind my second quickbar so I can access it more easily.
So for example to cast resists I'd go ctrl-keypad4, keypad1, to switch to my resists toolbar and select the first item (fire resist)
I also use a couple of hotkeys for important stuff I need to cast at a moment's notice, like displacement, protects, heals and such.
Devs: Thanks for making Druids available to VIPs without the pack. This more than anything, has made me want to buy the pack.
Things that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
- Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
- Cannith Crafting.
- Update the named loot to put them on the same system.
- Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
- Fixing all challenges to give us decent XP and ingredient returns for the unreasonable time we have to spend in most of them.

Ultimately, mine are pretty simple. I play on a small monitor. After all, its not the size that counts...well heck size doesn't matter in anything but tvs and computer monitors xD
I had bought my current monitor not too long before I started playing DDO. The following is basically the set up I've established for my toons.
