    Scrolls will suffice.

    Dumped UMD, this life has no use for it.

    Maybe, uh.. I can bring a hire? Aside from that, you're on your own. ^^

    In addition to other's good suggestions on a better mouse, using the number pad, take a gander at my Monk guide's chapter on using a gaming keypad, if you have the coin to spare. I'm considering adding a gaming mouse to greatly improve things. I use CTRL-ALT for special moves mapped to the pad but I could use some more for special tasks like Abundant Step. I manually move the many, many ED abilities to those keymaps but I'm hardly as efficient as others.

    I mapped the "F" key (no alt/shift/ctrl, just regiular F) to a hotbar button and then put all my character's Abundant Step-like abilities there:

    Monk: Abundant Step
    Wizard: Draconic's fly-by attack
    Cleric: Exalted's wings
    Other: Rocket Boots

    Having it right next to the movement keys (WASD) makes it very convenient.

    I like the previous suggestions, but I could never play with a keyboard and mouse, especially not on something click-heavy like a monk. I use an Xbox 360 controller. I cycle through up to 4 hotbars, but rarely set up more than 2 on a melee or 4 on a caster with enough spells. The most often used abilities are in 1-4 and 9-10 for me and 5-8 are useful, but not constant things like a damage action boost. Here is the guide I used to set mine up:

    https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthrea...-Gamepad-w-DDO

    It looks complicated, but it really isn't. Basically, to set up any new keybindings, you go into Options and Keyboard Options(I believe but I could be wrong and often am). You clear the previous binding and set up both a keyboard and controller binding(DDO allows up to set 2 inputs for the same action). This was so I can use both, but I never use the keyboard and mouse unless i'm having trouble targeting something.

    What's nice is that you can experiment and go back to previous keybindings by saving the ddo.keymap in your My Document/Dungeons and Dragons Online folder into another folder. If you replace the ddo.keymap file with a previous version, it restores your keymappings. This was really helpful for me when I was playing on multiple computers and getting my keybindings set up.
