    Default Easy and practical Idea about Menus

    Hello fellow DDO'ers,

    I would like to propose a better organization in the menus, specifically the "Feats" Tab in the character menu. I come across times when I want to find new feats (from character level up) and it gets hard simply because they're organised alphabetically and I don't know its name by heart, I think it would be of everyone's benefit if there was an option allowing to display Feats (And other tabs) in other forms of organization such as:

    Feats

    By Group:

    - Natural Feats: The ones you get automatically independently of your class (Auto Attack; Trip; Sunder)
    - Racial Feats: The passive feats you get from your class (Weapon proficiencies for example)
    - Class Feats: The ones you get automatically for your class (Bard Songs as an example)
    - Chosen Feats: The ones you choose (Whether in your path or costumized) when you reach Feat milestones
    ~ Toggling Feats
    ~ Metamagic Feats
    ~ All others

    Here's something I thought of:



    Enhancements:

    By group:

    - Racial Enhancements
    - Class Enhancements
    - Spell-related Enhancements
    - Skill-related Enhancements
    - Feat-related Enhancements

    Spells:
    - By school

    Adventure Compendium:
    - By Paying Type
    ~F2P
    ~P2P

    Map:
    - Could have a listing of local NPC's (They would be targeted on click)

    -------

    All of these organization types would be added to both the Character window and the Trainer's window
    They would be an OPTION, they would not be a change, just a simple option for those who would like it, so for those who prefer the current organization styles, you could still use them

    I like this, though perhaps with some better names and a little bit of refinement.

    Would love to see this, would also like to not have to see every wiz/sorc damage/crit enhancement whenever I uncheck "Show unavailable" on my pure barbarian.

    I likes it, your idea!

    Also what sirdanile said. About the enhancement list including stuff from a class you're not even playing atm when you "show unavailable". Summin oughtta be done about that too.
    All that is wrong with DDO, life, taxes, poltics, religion, music, fast food, education, the criminal justice system, the weather, society, the universe, and previously-discontinued-but-now-on-their-way-back snack cakes, is all the fault of Wizards of the Coast. I know this because Fred told me so, and Mind Flayers are smart.

    I have mentally digested this idea in about 0.6 seconds, and found it to be good.

    Make it so.

    Well, I suppose that kind of post adds a little bit more than a '^this' post, right?

    That is an excellent idea and I would think it also does not take much resources to implement. I would think they would not make such categories for F2P, VIP/Premium in the compendium though: people need to see what they don't have and crave it. ^^ (Of course that is how I think Turbine would think, not my personal view)
