Are you a new player in Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) and wondering how to use quick slots? Don’t worry, I’m here to help! Quick slots are an essential feature in the game that allows you to access items, potions, emotes, and more with just a press of a button. In this article, I will guide you on how to use quick slots on both PC and consoles like Xbox.
How to use quick slots in ESO?
To start using quick slots, you need to open your inventory menu. On PC, you can do this by pressing the “I” key on your keyboard. On consoles, you can access it through the game menu. Once you have your inventory open, you will see all the items you have collected so far.
Now, let’s assign some items to the quick slot wheel. In your inventory, select the item you want to assign. It can be a weapon, potion, emote, or any other tool you want quick access to. Once selected, you need to choose which quick slot you want to assign the item to.
On PC, you can use the numbers 1-8 on your keyboard to assign items to the quick slots. Alternatively, you can right-click on the item and choose the “Assign to Quickslot” option. This will bring up the quick slot wheel, and you can select the desired slot by clicking on it.
On consoles like Xbox, the process is a bit different. Use the D-pad (Tab to Use, Hold to assign)
