I find I am unable to assign the F keys to weapon sets, they only seem to bind to abilities.  Checked Control Options and didn't see anything there either that switches between weapon sets.  Can it be done or is manual clicking really the only way as of now?

This is driving me insane.  Playing on hard difficulty & trial of iron.  I need to be able to switch weapon sets with a hotkey.

None yet, but it would make me extremely happy if there were such a button. That and being able to use key commands for most actions in combat would be a nice addition in a future patch.

you can bind almost all combat abilities to a key (by hovering over it and presing the key  (that isnt already binded): quicckslots, abilities, spells,chants, even pet abilities. i think everything but weaponswaps

Here's an autohotkey script until a bind is officially patched in.  Calibrate to your needs:

; Pillars of Eternity Change Weapon Set
; by galneon
; AutoHotkey Version: 1.1
; Script Function:
;	Quickly change current weapon set for selected character
; Calibrated for 1920 x 1080 Fullscreen with custom ability bar position

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.

#IfWinActive Pillars of Eternity

; Toggle weapon set
Tab::  ; Activate via Tab (ensure no bind exists for Tab in-game)
MouseClick, left,  370,  930  ; location of ability bar weapon set button. Take a screenshot or just guess to find proper coordinates.
Sleep, 60
MouseMove, 960,  560  ; Center the cursor
Return

I'm not allowed to edit my post, but here's a better version of the script above that returns the cursor to where it was before running the macro (just in case anyone doesn't want to opt into the beta but can't wait for the patch):

I was going to edit this into your post for you, but then I realized that it would be perfectly legit as a separate entry. Thanks for taking the time to help out!

Obsidian thank you so much, man I can't believe you guys actually added the hotkey.  THANK YOU OBSIDIAN!

 

I begged Bioware to add a weapon swap hotkey for Dragon Age 2 and they didn't do ****, stupid ****ing bioware, **** you bioware.
