I doubt that I am the only person, or even the only rogue who could use a few more slots to memorize bandolier settings. Right now I generally have the following four bandolier settings:
Normal (best piercer in mainhand and best offhand weapon I have whatever it may be)
Piercing (best piercer in mainhand and second best piercer in offhand)
Blunt (best 1HB I have in mainhand and second best 1HB in offhand)
Slash (best 1HS I have in mainhand and second best 1HS in offhand)
The first setting is obviously used for most purposes. The last three are for various trials where mobs require the use of specific weapon types for various mobs.
I'd like to add the following two settings.
Tanking (a pair of weapons with high-agro procs and agro proc'ing augs for when all the tanks have died and I'm the closest thing to a tank left to try to finish off the mob's last few percent of health)
Snare (a pair of weapons with snare type procs for when I am soloing and want to try to snare the mob before I bandolier back to my normal weapons to burn it down, currently a fabled serrated bone dirk and an anklesmasher)
The Bandolier window obviously has room for a few more settings slots, so I'm guessing this shouldn't be a huge big deal to implement. Does anybody else wish they had more slots to save bandolier settings? If so, what do you have for settings now, and what would you like to add?
I sure wouldn't mind a few more bandolier slots, especially since I can think of at least one more setup that I use regularly, namely Throwing. I always keep a stack of throwing items (shissar fangs in my case) in a bag, in case I'm required to pull, tag or do ranged dps. Since I don't want to sacrifice stats to keep my throwing item in ranged slot, and fast switching may be required, having a throwing bandolier up constantly is a must as far as I'm concerned.
What I usually do is keep my three most used bandolier slots (in my case Main, Throw, Snare) and then use the last one as a rotating slot for whatever I need at the moment. For instance, if we are doing Vish I will call it Eggs and have my 1hb's loaded. That said, adding more bandolier slots wouldn't be gamebreaking and it's definitely something I wish they'd do.
Same exact setup as you Shmooz, obviously for weaponry trial (and to a lesser extent the rare time I help out on eggs for Vish), but how often do you do that trial? I do it every once in a blue moon just to see if I can get an even more impressive parse.
I guess it'd be nice for a little convenience and could probably find some use for it for throwing maybe, but I dont even keep it up on my screen, chances of me changing weapons in everyday battle is pretty slim.
Actually I'd like my potion belt to have more slots so I could put the different poisons I use in different quickly accesible clicky slots.
Add another "yes".
Normal, Empty (Simon), Pierce, Blunt, Slash, Slow, Snare...
Another 4 would be awesome.

I currently use these: Primarily for Specialization trial
Main- 2.0 Mainhand and Yarusha offhand (blunt)
Piercing- 2.0 Mainhand and Kess Fang offhand
Slash- 2.0 Mainhand and Dark Whisper (really really crappy slasher.. god I need and upgrade)
Bow- Main with a change to my bow (can't remember the name) and my arrows.. I know I should use throwing, but I don't have a great summoned throwers and I don't like to take the time to make the javelins unless it is a range specific fight and not too many of those out there..
I do setup different ones when I am soloing.. and would not being against having more capabilities in setup, but not at the loss of something more important.. Personally, I would want the Devs working on something more important like.. more DPS for us..
