i just came back to playing EQ, and I was trying to remember how to set some to open my spell book, and load spells,
The little book icon on your spell bar allows you to do both without making hotkeys at all. Save a spell set (i.e., buff, group, solo, etc.) and then just load from there. My one hint is to keep long refresh spells in all your sets in the same location.
For example: my chanter used to love running "Night's Dark Terror", so I would keep it memmed in the bottom spell slot of all my sets, including various buff sets. This stopped me having to wait for it. I also kept my best mez in every set just in case unexpected bad happened.
Nowadays (years later...) my necro keeps feign death perma-memmed among all sets.
As a side note: bumping old threads on this boards is frowned upon greatly. It's better to start a new thread (quote or link to the old thread if the info in it really matters). There are quite a few with rating powers that will downrate necroposting --since your post count is currently 1 you probably get away with it this time (but it's really not worth getting sub-default rated over).
