More quickbar slots

I was just reading the developer update for 1.4 where a bunch of abilities are getting nerfed but in turn for instance mercenaries get a new ability.

Where am I supposed to put that?? My hotbars are already full, and have already needed some culling of less used abilities, so really I need another bar for things I dont use in combat, like speeder, buffs, stims, etc. to clear up space for combat stuff.

It makes no sense to have more abilities/item effects or whatever than there are quickbar slots. Anything not hotbared will almost never get used.

I agree 100%. We need at least one more quickbar, especially before the level cap increase, which apparently brings with it new high level abilities, and indirectly more on top of that - five more skill points means possibly reaching a new ability in a second skill tree.

I talked to Damion Schubert and asked him this question, and he let me know that additional quickslots are in the works and are slated to make it in before the end of the year. I don't have a more specific timeline, but it's something that we do have plans for!

What about removing action bar 1 slot 1 being right mouse click? its a wasted slot for since i don't want to do anything when I right click.

Excellent news always find myself with those few abilities I want on my bars but can't as just not enough room... consumables and stuff like that.

Would be nice to let us show our bars in a arc/curve instead of a straight line as well... you know make our HUD's look a bit prettier.
Its just business... nothing personal.

Oh great. More visual clutter. That should make casuals flock to this game like in droves.
Smart move, Bioware. What's next on the agenda, dual-spec?

Personally, I find that if I run out of slots, it's because the game automatically droped things onto the bar and created the clutter. I just have to remove the opitons that don't fit with my particular build. For instance, you don't need every single possible attack, just a core of 4 to 6. You don't need every stim pack that you've ever collected, just the best 1 or 2, toss in your interrupts, and special emergency attacks, and some defense/escape skills, and your speeder and travels. You should still have plenty of free slots.
