Black Desert Online: Setting Up Quickslots

Playing BDO I find that some of the simplest things are the hardest to figure out. Or maybe I make it hard by over thinking it. I spent time over a couple of days trying to find this answer.

Setting Up Quickslots

At the bottom-center of the screen are the ten keyboard shortcuts for the keys 1 to 0. The game allows you to set those to what you want. Well, they can be for healing potions and in some cases for fighting moves. Not much else. I found there is lots online about why not to use them for anything other than potions and what’s best to put where. What they didn’t tell me is how to set them up.

Those that played the game while it was still in Korean, had to figure it out. But, now it is so common place to them it doesn’t occur to them to mention how you set them up. Whatever, I’ve never seen it done this way… it stumped me.

Setup is sort of Drag-n-Drop. In inventory click and drag an item off its square in inventory. Now you can let go of the LMB… or not. Move the item over the Quickslot you want it in. Left-click that space and the item pops into place. You can’t just click-hold, drag, and release the button. You have to click on the space where you want to put the icon.

You will see the item in inventory and in the Quickslots. If you take the item from inventory, it will disappear from the Quickslots. So, you can’t poke those things into storage.

My problem was, I expected it to be the Drag-n-Drop style I expect. I left-click and drag the icon all the way to where I want it then let go. That doesn’t work. It didn’t occur to me to left-click once more, which will snap the icon in place.

    • Yeah, I had to get someone in the game to explain it to me… So, I made a web page. 🙂 Glad it helped.
