    The way I do it.

    As fire mage , i am lvl 80 tho

    Page 1

    -1 Burst
    -2 nova
    -3 meteor
    -4 absolute power
    -5 inferno
    -6 blizzard (IMPORTANT )
    -7 soul pot
    -8 hp pot

    Page 2
    1->5 fire spells like thorn/impact
    -6 frostbite
    -7 soul
    -8 hp

    Page 3
    -1 tp
    -2 manes
    -3 manes
    -4 gate
    5-6 resist
    -7 soul
    -8 hp

    Page 4
    Blast, firespear etc , blade and 6 frostbite again

    It's important to have ice on same slot and hp soul pots i think

    chill is usefull cuz it has no damage in the moment u use it, so the mob is slowed from the begging. If u use solid then mob will run/fly just like w/o slow for like 2seconds b4 he'll get slowed

    Pilars: pilar of fire, thorn, impact, incineration :P I forgot that u are 70- so u don't have an incineration :P put there a hellfire :P

    simontjeuh, blizzard at 6? Imho it's needed higher at ur skillbar cuz u need to press it easly

    I have no problems finding my blizzard, you just need to get used to it. even if you put it on 8 no problem. But imo each skillbar should have same setup.
    1-> damage spells 6-> ice spell 7-8 pots. So whatever page u on u never get fuked up cause u don't find back ur spells / pots.
    If you go like page 1: hp on 5. Page 2 hp on 3 . Page 3 hp on 8 u only make it difficult for yourself. This was what i tried to explain.

    ! always put hp/mp pots in same slot on all skill bars. The obvious benefit is no matter what skill bar you are on you know where your pots are.

    As BigApple said... one thing that's good for all players is having hp and mp pots in the same slot on all skill bars, and honestly I just put them on slot 7 & 8 because I got hp under my right click button on my mouse anyway, and as for mp, you can manage to click it from the 7th/8th slot once in a while... better to have it at the end where it doesn't interrupt your skills so you can just go 1, 2, 3 really quick with the skills without the mp pot in your way.


    You said you do ok with the exp, only need help with pk... I don't really play mage anymore but this is what I used to have...
    and this will be very general since all skill bars are different depending on your preference, but just so you get an idea, maybe you'll like it...

    1st skillbar...
    On the 1st skillbar, 1st slot I had tp (!) and all the skills that can slow... blizzard, frostbite, and solid are the important ones I've used. Chill was mentioned, but chill is more for slowing mobs rather than players > so that goes into the exp skillbars.

    Then the rest I just put in groups like:
    F2... aoe,
    F3... non-aoe skills with good dmg,
    F4... continuous dmg skills... as we all know, continuous dmg can really add up.


    Basically...
    F1-F4 was pk...
    F5-F7 was exp...
    F8 was tp (once again), gate, esc, and scrolls

    lvl 80 though.. so you could fill in some spots with lower lvl skills.. all my bars are pretty much for pk.. but F2 is easy for me for xp

    As bigapple said.. its good to have your pots at same spot on all bars, so u dont need to be switching hand places, but its how u like your skill bar
