I have been hesitant on making this thread, the question is simple and really would seem like a question with a obvious and easy answer. I just really have not found a solid answer yet.

Here it is,

Can you instantly switch from hot bar 1 and 2 while in combat, is switching hot bars viable. As in do you base your characters build around one hot bar (hot bar 1) or both hot bars?

If I say have 5 assassination abilities on hot bar 1, and on hot bar2 I have Shadow Cloak to get my character out of combat back into stealth. Is that something that works?

Basing this from a PvP stand point, on paper, it all sounds great, I need to know how fast you can switch, is their a global cooldown on your abilities after you switch?

Anyone that has this information, I would appreciate details on this.

Thank you!

Players may switch their an alternative weapon set during combat which takes a second or two to do. Not exactly instant, but doesn't cripple you either if you decide to do it. All in all, it should feel relatively seamless during combat so you could make use of both hot bars to their full advantage.

Source for weapon switching speed.

Have to admit it would be nice if we could have multiple hotbars for a single weapon/loadout. Maybe a cooldown timer on it so if you are using a staff for example and you roll from hotbar 1 to hotbar 2 you have to wait 4-5 seconds to use the abilities. This is in addition to the multi hotbar support for your two weapon choices.

This means you can now have a hotbar designed for PvP and hotbar that might be different for PvE, or one where you mostly act from stealth and one where you rarely hide for example. The 4-5 second cooldown will stop people being able to instantly switch hotbars during battle and effectively doubling their abilities.

What are most people purposing their hotbars for?

A PvP hot-bar and a PvE hot-bar?

A ranged combat hot-bar and a close combat hot-bar?

or two hot-bars full of skills you think are awesome but not specific to any "build"?

Does your weapon swap out with the hot-bar? Like if I have a sword equipped, and I swap my hot-bar, does this automatically un-equip my sword and equip my secondary weapon? Or does my sword remain equipped? And is there a secondary button to swap weapons?

You don't actively swap the hot bar, you swap the weapon. When you swap between 2 weapons specifically using the weapon swap mechanic (unlocked at a later level), your hotbar will switch with your weapon. Presumably, you could have it setup to swap your weapon while retaining the same hotbar (speculation), but you cannot swap the hotbar without swapping the weapon.

The weapon swap unlocks on level 15 and you are able to have the same weapon/-s on both options, but change the skills on the hotbar.
