Action wheel idea.

In most action, or singleplayer RPGs, there is an action wheel option. You hold down a button, and a wheel (box, whatever shape) pops up, and you have whatever buttons you decide there. Inventory, quest, map, potion - the possibilities are endless. Normally this is not in an MMO. In MMOs you have to click a button for quests, one for map etc. Most players - I would think, like me, does not bind those buttons. There is allready a ton of keys you need to use in an MMO, so instead of having to mouse the button in a corner of the screen, or move the hand around all the time, you could just have an action wheel to solve this problem. Its not a new thing, but it works.

What yall think?

    Maybe you were inspired by my thread! Maybe drop some input on that thread so we can get some traction rolling if you have any views on it.

    I was not, did not even see your thread. But I was too late I see hehe. I was actually playing Far Cry Primal, and got annoyed that there was not an action wheel.
