Hello, I was playing FFXIV beta some last night, and got my pugilist to level 4. In that time I got 2 new abilities, but was unable to equip them to my hotbar. when I tried to do anything with them on the abilities/traits screen, it would ask me whether I wanted to equip it to the right or left hand, then would tell me it couldn't unequip the ability I had already there. (I can't log in to tell you the names of the abilities, sorry)

So does anyone know the proper way to add abilities to the hot bar?

You need to go to abilities in the menu, and in the pulldown bar at the top right of the menu it opens, expand it and choose the disipline you want. It will then show you that jobs abilities to choose from. Then you just set them in the hotkey slot you want.

You select first the slot you want to put it in. Then select the ability and say to put it in main hand. Remember you cant do this while in active mode, or nothing will happen.

It should just show them all by default, but what can you do huh.

TC, the quick way to equip an ability is by typing in the following and clicking enter:

/eaction # "Ability name"

(where) # is the slot number you wish to equip ability in and Ability name is the name of the ability (make sure its in quotes)

**This can be macro'd too if you'd like to set up an entire macro for your pugilist.

The long way to do it is by opening abilities menu - clicking on an empty slot (any empty slot you want), then clicking on drop down menu, choosing PUG, then choosing the ability you want and choosing main hand (or off hand depending on which weapon you want to map it to, for now, use main hand).

ahh, I didn't try selecting an empty slot, I figured I'd have to drag it to the slot. thank you, I'll try that when the worlds come back up. You don't happen to know what stats a Pugilist should go for, do you? I'm not having wonderful luck finding pugilist tips.

From what i dead, DEX is a good one because it helps with EVA, which pug makes use of.
But I wouldn't beat myself up about choices right now, because you can re-distribute points once every few hours.
