    Default Hotbar setup

    How does everyone setup their hotbars? On my beastlord i cant seem to figure out how best to setup yet, and am largely clicking from the primals bar, which is quite inefficient, particularly when i need to move around a lot.

    right now i have 4 hotbars on the bottom, and a sustained buff bar on the right side of the screen. only the left two bars on the bottom are linked (number and alt+number). usually slot 1 and 2 in spiritual or 4 in feral advantages are linked to my top bar, but not sure what else should be readily available.

    What I used to have:

    bottom row: melee/ranged buttons, pet stop attacking macro, 3 of my feral advantages, 3 of my spiritual advantages
    2nd row: my combat arts
    3rd row: my primals (dragged from the hotbar)
    4th row /top : temps and targeting macros

    After a few raids, this wasn't working well.

    Based on my playstyle (move left hand, click right hand), I ended up making columns of my hotbars (with the top of each column being the 3rd row to the bottom row).

    So I still had the same buttons on the row, but the above rows were now 3-4 columns made up of my CAs, and then 2-3 columns made of my Primals

    So I just clicked from top to bottom 1st column, then 2nd, then 3rd, and when using primals, used those in a succession of columns.

    My primal columns were kind of a mishmash due to some stealth primals in there, and different situations requiring different primals (single target / aoe); but I hope you get the idea.

    What I now have: Ranger.

    hah yeah i can appreciate that. The game seems to be far more clicky intensive than a remember. its hard on my wrists.

    tbh i miss the old style eq1 where you had a max of 8 spells as a caster or just a few abilities as a melee. not as intensive, but certainly doesnt kill you either.
