One question though: as you're using the !qb, have you found a way around the !qb delay that seems to be in place? I was initially using one hotbar as !qb alterations, but found the delay in battle to be too high.
If you're talking about the delay between sending the !qb command to the server and receiving it. Yeah, depending on your ping you have a .1 - .6 second delay before it finishes querying the server and loading your new bar. (I am assuming !qb is saved on the servers though, it might just be slow and player side)
I can't fix this, or change it. The delay isn't bad (for me at least), but like i said it's ping dependent. If you're playing with some terrible lag/ect constantly, you could get anywhere from .6 seconds delay (300 ping) to a full 1 second delay (500 ping). In those cases hotbars are the least of your problems, since everything you do in the game would also share that huge lag delay.
Most players are probably in the 70-200 Ping range. So .1-.4 seconds max.
Like i said, i can't fix that. My suggestion would be to simply use the normal hotbars for spells you need reactions to, and use these for additional abilities you may not use as frequently, but still want easy access to.
Although i stress, that for some generic damage dealing spells, i haven't found the delay long enough to be an issue, and the small delay is a very cheap price to pay to have spells on your actionbars you wouldn't otherwise, specially when no matter how bad your ping is, it'll still bring up the spells for you before you could navigate to them on your radial menu.
Tl;DR: It's tons faster than the radial menu and opening your spellbook/dragging things to your hotbar.
