I want situational spells, I want death prevents/death saves/emergency abilities. I think the best compromise woudl be the BL stance setup. give everyone 3 stances like monks. Defense/Offense/Balanced. setup your hotbars for each stance as you want. and then have it autoswitch the spells as you switch stances. but if I had to choose the EQ1 method or the EQ2 method for spells/hotbars...I'd still choose EQ2, hands down.
