I set actions in slots 2 & 3 and after i changed to mining i reequiped my main weapon and all the abilities were not in there anymore. I tried setting them again, it did, but PLEASE dont tell me we have to put all the abilities back in everytime lol What am I doing wrong??

For beta you have to remap them, for retail SE said they changed it so it remembers as far as I know.

For now you can macro them in if you'd like, here's the beta test site where you can access the manual and learn about macros:

ok so when Alpha comes out we should be good? Cause that would be INSANE to redo everytime you changed to gather ya know?

and what about the time delay, when switching from a weapon to a gathering tool, then trying to go back to weapon it says"cannot do that now" makes you wait about 10 minutes. So basically if your like mining and you get aggro you are dead cause it wont let you change to main weapon, and you can only throw rocks lol

Alpha was before beta dude... as for switching, it doesn't make you wait 10 minutes. Are you trying to switch while in active mode? If so it won't let you, try switching in passive mode...

How do we switch from active to passive? When i go to a gate guard and talk to them it seems to let me change weapons then..other than this issue i think everything is pretty cool with this game, i played FFXI for 6 years, and amlooking forward to this, so let me know about passive mode if you can and THANKS for any info you can pass to me :)

The default button on the keyboard is "F" and the default for a controller would be the equivalent of R1 I guess...though if you changed your controls you'll have to look for it...

It's easy to miss if you're on a DoL/DoH because their passive/active stances are pretty similar, once you play around with it you'll see the slight differences...

Its a beta thing, you can set your actions (and you can tell they're set by watching the chat log as you set them) and if you don't see them after a little while try logging out and back in but yes for me it also takes some time for them to pop up after I set them, but more like 10-15 seconds, not 10 minutes.

Yes, it's just a beta thing. They'll be releasing an update to that, hopefully before live release. I've also found it frustrating, but made macros for now as a work-around.

On the gamepad, you can assign a key for switching from active to passive mode. I've set mine to what I think was the triangle(top) button. I just wish I could find a way to get my alt and ctrl macro buttons to work from the gamepad(they keep closing on me when I try to cycle through them). The action buttons work, but the alt and macros don't stay open like they do in ffxi on my gamepad =(
