That action bar binding style update is just gonna make it easier for those less skilled to hybrid. PVP's already really dead due to many other reasons, the easier ya make it the more it'll keep dying as people get bored sooner.


So? better pvmers/pvpers will win anyway.

The ability bar action is great. Can we have an option for the shield users? like range(magic, melee)+shield option. It will be awesome to switch to another action bar with my shield abilities. Please ninja fix team, don't let your dreams be dreams. Please and thank you.

I was about to ask the same! This would really help out with tanking.
Though it does seem more complicated because it requires the system to keep track of your off-hand, also if you switch back. If it would be possible though it would be great! It might in fact make a lot of the defensive abilities I have on a secondary bar obsolete, since they would be instantly accessible from the main bar upon switching. Thus leaving me with way more space on my secondary bar!

The more I think of it the better this sounds!

Like the action bar change, with a minor qualm: It's 1:1. I use one bar for both styles of ranged, another for both styles of magic. With those, I just switch out the very few abilities that are different. We need to be able to apply "Magic - General" or "Ranged - General"
also, on nxt at least....open the dropdown for selecting a style to assign a bar, then scroll the list of bars. the dropdown moves up and down the screen, kinda silly

and another problem, unrelated: Bank space counter for swapping items. I have 92/303 and 400/468. I get an error that I have not enough space, when I try to switch a rune claw with a defender, and vice versa. Rather silly, given that my bank space is definitely not full.

Agreed, and its not just for tanking.

The logic should be straight forward as well.

I think since most people use virtually the same abilities on their range/mage action bars, there should be a third option on each that allows switching to that action bar when ANY ranged/magic weapon is equipped.

My action bars for 2h/dual are identical except for one ability, which I drag up from an auxillary bar.
