Public Service Announcement: Assist Rapid Riding.

I've never seen it on the popular list, so I have a feeling many people might be overlooking it.

Assist Rapid Riding atuomatically handles the switching of Rapid maneuver onto, and off of your hotbar, when you mount or dismount Definitely an excellent addition especially for those without 60-Speed trained horses.

Granted it is not perfect, at times it bugs out-- but seems to do so less than the vanilla "rapid maneuver" skill itself (which about 30% of the time simply doesn't work while mounted-- despite being intended to do so)

    Thank you! I kept forgetting to switch skills back and finally just ended up giving up on using RM. I'm getting this immediately!

    Yeah, the folks I pvp with were complaining about it not working properly so I never bothered, but I don't have rapids morphs on my healers since I can't spare the skill point, so I should try it out. Seriously annoying to have it hog a slot.

    It works but if you get stuck in combat on your horse and you still have the speed buff on your bar it gets kinda wonky since the game doesn't let you swap skills in combat.

    As soon as the speed buff shows up, you have to press it and get that skill replaced with your normal one. Or put speed buff on a number slot that isn't your main damage or heal lol. There are setting to do that. Once you get used to it, its pretty helpful.

    It's a very nice addon, I've been using it for a while. If you are in a combat zone then just be sure to use Rapid Maneuver as soon as the addon swaps to it so that the addon can quickly swap back to your default skill. It sucks going into combat and having RM stuck on your skill bar because skills can't be changed while in combat.

    Been using it for a while. Very reliable and works great. Just have to try not to get ganked off your horse cause i think it keeps rapids on instead of swapping back to the original skill. But having 1000cp Flawless Conqueror helps with not getting ganked in the first place :D

    This is exactly why I set it up to remove it from my bar after casting and during the duration of the skill. Helps alleviate some of the moments where you end up in combat before dismounting.

    I use this. I have it set to only toggle when I press a hotkey rather than auto toggling. That way I can toggle when it's safe, activate it, then switch back to my normal skills. But if I need to mount up in or near combat, I don't risk getting the skill stuck.

    It's unreliable, and annoying to find and reset my normal skill if I get knocked out of mount and it doesn't reset the skill. But ARR's the only way I remember to slot Rapids at all and use it, so it's been a huge help there.
    So in reality this Only is helpful to PC players and has Nothing to do with the rest of the player base.

    Yes, like all addons discussed in the Addon topic. This should not be a shock. Consoles are 1/10 the price of a desktop system that can play ESO, but get all content weeks later and can't do addons. Complain to Sony or Microsoft if you don't like that.

    well he could complain to me since I intiially posted this to the general forums-- wanted to reach a wide audience with my PSA :disappointed:

    But to be fair the 1/10th is an exaggeration, probably about 1/3. Im playing on an old FX8350, DDR3 Memory and a GTX960 and the game runs fine. Even with 50+ addons. It cost about $1300 when I made it initially, which is about what you'd pay just fore the core components of a more modern machine-- 16GB DDR4, i7-8700k, good mobo, psu, and gtx 1050-1060-- though im not really taking into consideration the extreme inflation of the price of a 10-series or GPU in general. I think we can all agree that crypto miners are filthy n'wah.

    This is one of my must have addons, can't play without it now, I use it everywhere. In dungeons I usually toggle the skill after every fight to give major expedition to the group so we get to the next fight faster, some people appreciate it.

    This is one of the only addons i use, and i find it kind of essential given the limited amount of skills we can have. Now it's broken though after the new patch. Will it be fixed or have zenimax done something so that it no longer works?

    Thank you, folks. I came here to ponder whether I could simply fix Assist Rapid Riding because I needs it and it made me want to cry not having it in (1) Cyrodiil and (2) farming Psijiic skills riding all over the place. Frankly, I don't ride across Belkarth without Rapids.

    Now if I knew what to replace No, Thank You with!

    It's easy to fix if you can't wait for the author to do so. If you go into the add on folder and edit AssistRapidRiding.lua and Core.lua by changing local rapidManeuverRefId = 46488 to local rapidManeuverRefId = 38566 and local hasPrgression,rmProgressionIndex = GetAbilityProgressionXPInfoFromAbilityId(46488) to local hasPrgression,rmProgressionIndex = GetAbilityProgressionXPInfoFromAbilityId(38566) it will fix it!

    Perfect, thank you very much for that one. For anyone reading this, someone has uploaded the fixes to Google Drive and posted it in the comments so you don't have to edit the .lua yourself.

    If anyone's using fast ride and it's now failed (like mine has) after the patch, you can switch to this instead at least for the time being, as it works fine.

    edit : actually it could just be that if you see that fast ride has failed and you allow outdated addons, you have to log out and back in again before it works. Forgot to check that and just thought it didn't work.
