Is there an option for this somewhere?

That was the first thing I looked for. You'd think with all the work they did, they could've at least gave us another action bar.

Hell no. (I would have just said "no", but posts have to be at least 5 characters now).

Nope, just another BW failure. Basically you're stuck with just 3 if you want to save one to scroll between a PvE and PvP bar.

Depressing.

Sigh.

Maybe rather than asking for another bar, we should be considering just how many abilities we really need.

My experience of key binding is that right handed people regularly uses 1-7, then maybe <alt+1-7>, <q-r>, <a-f>, <z-c> (maybe ctrl or shift instead of alt). Some people might use more in an environment with macros, etc. But some people are mad.

So there we have maybe 25 abilities that are within easy reach of a players left hand. Throw in a conservative other 10 abilities. There are 3 bars full of abilties. Plus a final bar for out of combat abilities.

But... is it really practical to use 35 abilities regularly? I'm sure someone somewhere has calculated the perfect number of abilities for a skilled player to use in combat. I doubt it's as high as 35.

So perhaps the question shouldn't be "can we have more quickbars?" but instead "can we have fewer, but more vital, abilities?".

Here's what I'm confused is missing:

1. Why can't I make the 3 and 4 bars horizontal?
2. Why can't I add more than 4 (as the OP mentioned).
3. Why do we have some many damn abilities anyway...
4. Where is the /target name command
5. Where is the /assist name command
6. Where's the rest of the expected MMO features like the above.

I feel like I'm playing EQ1 and not in a good way sometimes. Nm even EQ1 had those things.

Seriously. First thing I looked for as well. I'm hoping I'm just missing the option to add another one and the designers really didn't over look this.

It's beyond me how they could not give us the option for more than 4 bars. Given the number of abilities we have (and I like the number of abilities), 4 bars is not enough to adequately and efficiently organize them. I'd say we need at the very least 6, however if I end up playing this game in end game as much as I used to play WoW 6 won't be enough either. Frankly, just give us the option to add up to at least 10.

Also, #2 thing I looked for for customizing my UI doesn't appear to be there either, and that's the ability to fade something out unless it's moused over. Hoping I'm just missing the option to do that as well.....
