    i believe it hasnt been discussed before. if so, i apologize.

    1: wouldnt it be cool to have the following features added to our runebooks?
    - not only recall charges but also gate charges? if a book would have 8 charges it could either hold 8 recalls + 8 gates or recall & gates for sum of 8 charges.
    - today we have recall & gate gumps on the books: how about we make (redesign) these 2 gumps smaller and add "MARK". This so it would work exactly as it sais, you owuld remark the rune in that slot of the book without taking it out of it (naming would remain untouched) >> this would result in an easier way to change 1 rune, without touching the order, the naming ect.

    - on the main pages of book : u have a "recall" button but it would also need a "gate" button (if the charges above allow)

    Adding additional gate functionality doesn't seem necessary.

    You could set a macro to reset the default location of the book and then use a gate scroll in your pack and target the book. That seems sufficient.

    I would prefer staff time not be spent on more tamer perks like this. It's not that it's a horrible idea, but I'd really prefer that if they're desperate for projects they focus on something more generally useful, fun, or which helps other templates.




    I do like the mark button idea, so I voted for that.

    First of all, what madman uses a gate scroll to recall?

    Secondly, there are many uses for this that arent tamer specific. This would make it more efficient for thieves to make a quick getaway. It would also apply to the resource gatherer dragging pack horses around. Or even simply moving large stacks of resources/bags with heavy weight.

    You have been drinking too much of the anti-tamer koolaid.

    I meant to target the book and you knew that. Edited.

    I'm not really sure why I'd need this to move heavy bags reagents work just fine for that.

    Thieves and pack horses are fair points, I'm willing to concede that, although this could still be accomplished with a macro as mentioned above.

    As for anti-tamer Kool-Aid, I'll have you know I brewed the anti-tamer Kool-Aid thank you very much. My teeth and fingers were well-stained Bunch Berry blue for years before you first arrived in Ocllo.

    How about making different recall flags in the runebook draggable like spells are.
