I recently got a fire pot, I don't want to throw it by accident. Yet as soon as I equip it I automatically get "Throw" in the next available action slot.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to move it? Does anyone know?

Unfortunately, you cannot currently move guard or throw without unequipping the item giving you the ability (e.g. your shield). The ability is automatically assigned to the first available slot. I get guard to the button I want it on by making a macro that assigns all my abilities then at the end of the macro doing /equip shield. It's not ideal, but it works for now. I seem to recall seeing something about SE planning on fixing this problem in the big update next month, but I don't know if that's 100% accurate or not. Either way, for the time being all you can do is make a macro for it all.

Actually, you can move skills. Just select the skill you want to move first from your hotbar in the action menu, then select the skill you want to swap it with out of the drop down menu. It'll switch the two skills on your bar.

For example, to move Guard from 3 to 2.

#2 action is provoke
#3 action is guard

Select guard(since it cant be unequipped) from the action bar, then select provoke from the drop down menu and accept. Now they are switched.

It's a bit of a hassle but it works.
