HotKey Slots for Changing Gears/Items

Nov 11, 2010
I used to be playing some MMORPG.

I just need to know when will Wizard101 provide a hotkey slots.

HotKey 1 to 9

This is an easy way of equipping/unequipping items without opening the backpack. The items (hat,robes,wand,cards) that we usually wear can just be dragged on the icon hotkey slots -- and in case we unequip the items it will appear again on the hotkey. By just pressing the numbers from 1 to 9. We can automatically change to the items that we want.

I'm with you, I think this is something that Wizard101 is missing.

Question though: with all the different hats, robes, shoes, decks, and other gear, are nine hotkeys going to be enough?

As with all the other games the 9 hot keys wont be enough...

but say hitting the correct button will toggle the hotkey slots to:

F1 button with 3-5 key slot for Hats
F2 for Robes
F3 for Shoes
F4 for Wands
F5 for Pets
F6 for Decks

i think there'll be enough :D

Good idea. Another good addition would be to take you idea and be able to configure gear sets as well.

Nice idea. I like it, and don't see it causing any harm. With all the new organization tools KI is adding, I think this would be a great addition!
