This quickslot lock is in the most inconvenient place possible, If you are off by a little bit by trying to click your number 1 ability, you unlock your quickslot bar and the next thing you know it, you're playing musical abilities with your quickslot during a fight and deleting abilities on accident that you really need. I swear sometimes it unlocks itself when you zone.

You know, some people like to use the mouse........

I've had this happen before and it's frustrating.

The Lock icon is in a stupid place, it has no business being millimeters from the buttons being clicked.

Just move it the preferences menu or somewhere that isn't routinely clicked.

Well binding would help that from happening but if you must click


There is also a lock button in your options so if you do have to click it won't move anymore.


I would recommend trying to play without clicking though. Adjust your bindings so that they are easier to hit... don't use 7-= change those to better keys like shift 1,2,3,4,5. Once you get use to using keys instead of clicking your reactions will be much faster.

Some ppl click, thats their way of doing things, maybe small hands or stiff fingers makes it difficult for them to hit all those keybinds, I myself was a clicker up untill recently and i still click on some abilities. Being a "clicker" should not make you the target for flames, I have seen some very good players that were clickers.

And to the OP, I too have had what your describing happen, it is very annoying and yes I think at times it unlocks on zoneing by itself because I have had it happen at times when i wasnt even hitting the abilities near the unlock, on a related note, I have also noticed my relics being removed from my left hot bar completely from time to time when i zone.
