    Just testing early game again, I think you should pull the buff and speed skills off the combat decks and put them on the Utility bar by default.

    That would mean Strength of Earth from the blade deck, and dash and air's embrace from archer. It's not going to hurt them to see two different buffs on their Utility bar, and will get that in their mind as the proper place to put them.

    Oh, and doing so would let you ADD Ignite weapon to ranged and blade without overwhelming them.

    And trust me, if you've watched the newb videos, everyone LOVES igniting their weapon, particularly at night.

    You can't use those buffs in combat from the utility bar.

    Yes I know that.

    Do you use strength of earth from your combat bar? If so, move it down to your Utility bar and you'll be much more effective in the future.

    I use Air's Embrace from a separate buff combat bar, where I can charge it up for a bigger bonus and longer duration.

    New players don't know they can hold down the key to charge.

    But if there's one thing I think we can all agree upon, the buffs should not be on your primary combat bar. Move it to the Utility bar for the newbs.

    Long buffs. Short buffs need to be on your primary combat bar. That's the only where place they can actually be useful.

    Would be alot easier for everyone if we would get a customisable third bar for BUFFS .

    Right. So just quoting myself again, since that's what I said:

    "That would mean Strength of Earth from the blade deck, and dash and air's embrace from archer."

    You can put it on the utility bar if you want but that's a really poor place to put it. Those slots on the utility bar are valuable for things that you can actually use in combat; like potions, poisons, buckets of water, etc. Create a second combat bar for long buffs and switch to it momentarily to reapply those buffs.
