For those of you who use a lot of siege
I find it rather fraustraing having to go into inventory and find the siege amoungst all the loot in your bag if you've playing for an hour or two.
They should add a siege and trap button to the hotbar, For WvW only. I feel like this should be added a long time ago.
They implemented a Novelities button on your hot bar, something i don't really use (is kind of pointless) but in wvw we all use siege and its a hassle at times to maintain/organise it or to get it out quickly like getting a disabler out because you have to find it first.
The Siege/Trap button would go at the end of the skill bar next to the mounts and Novelities. Here is roughly drawn example.
Most people use 1 or 2 traps and the odd siege here and there. so this would be perfect.
You hit the siege button if a siege is set to it and you equip it as normal, you don't have to go in the inventory. If you want a different siege, it arrow above it and a small pop up appears with the siege and traps you've set will be there for you to choose from, no more inventory window. I think 12 slots of siege along with the 4 slots for traps should be enough for most people
They would have to add a tab to the WvW panel under the skill point tab call "siege" (they could add it to hero panel but it's wvw thing so keep it there)
This is where your siege and traps are stored to use in wvw and you can also set which ones you want in the drop down menu when changing siege.
As for how many siege and traps of a type you would able to store in the siege storage... I would say limit to 1 stack of each to make it easier, (250 basic of the version, 250 Superior of the version and 250 Guild of the version ) this would allow you have 750 of 1 type of siege. Otherwise people would go crazy with it.
After buying a siege or trap you can right click it and add it to the "siege storage" or double click it to use as normal.
This would mean that siege or traps could be shared amoungst ALL character's on the account. A common problem is a lot of people switch characters depending on the situation or their mood. Some people have solo roaming only characters and others have ones geared out for groups or commanding. Whatever the case maybe an issue is sometimes you forget bring a siege or traps with you because you've just left them on the other character you've switched from. Having access to siege when you need it would be nice.
Futhermore it would save on inventory space and bank storage space. So you don't have to carry 6-10 different siege/trap items on you.
What do you think.
It would be nice to have this on WvW. I know it's not for everyone but it would help.
