    I can barely stand having two bars, let alone four or more.
    Left handed. No hotkeys worth mentioning.

    UMD required items, and UMD gear goes in the upper right.
    The Bar below my UMD set is my armor set for fighting Casters XD.
    The bars on the bottom right are gear/weapons. 1 closest is DPS, 2nd is S@B/TWF sets for like vorping and weakening. The 3rd is my dps melee set .
    My main bar is trip haste boosts and power surge
    Bar above that is the Tactical melee equipment... eathral bracers, jorgundalls collar, and heal amp.
    The bar above that is the buff bar.... OHHH YA!!
    and the bar above that is like FF/strider/deathblock/haggle +15 helm/blindness ward/whatever the **** else you can think of

    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?

    I HATE mouselook. I am left handed. So no, I don't even use Mouselook to swim.

    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'm left-handed but have always used a right-handed mouse, so it doesn't really affect things for me.

    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.

    Before I began to use a gamepad, I was almost always in mouselook mode, while having some things keymapped and some not.

    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'm right-handed but ambidextrous with a mouse: my dad is left-handed and used to get *****y if I moved his previous mouse to the other side of the keyboard and forgot to return it to his position. Now I'm comfortable using it either way (and typically go lefty for some things like Starcraft).

    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.

    I don't use WSAD, I use the arrow keys, but have a similar background, so I'm always in mouse-look mode. I mapped ctrl keypad_1 to 0 to switch to toolbar #1-10, and keypad_1 to 9 to activate the given spell/item.

    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.

    For the Fire Shield, Protection from Energy, Resist Energy and Teleport spells you can pull the individual effects out of the dialogue box and put them on your toolbars for easy access. Most of these you can toggle out of mouselook, hit the hotbar and toggle back to mouselook quickly.

    No. I more around in normal WASD/mouse mode all the time. I tend to use a lot of toolbars because I like having all my options available. The tricky part is finding a layout that can work with all your characters as all their keymaps are the same.
    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.
    • Fixing physical defense for Rangers and Rogues. It’s ridiculous that you’re better off wearing Heavy Armor and ignoring your innate feats on these classes.
    • 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.

    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.
