Ever wanted to unequip what's in your left hand at the press of a hotkey? Look no further!

Favourite Fist adds three "spells" that do exactly that - they unequip whatever's in your left hand, right hand or both hands. They appear in the "Powers" category in the Magic menu, and can be favourited and hotkeyed.

This is useful for Spellsword-type characters who want to be able to switch between sword & spell and sword-only for blocking, without the tedium of going into the favourites menu each and ever time. This is also good for people who like hand-to-hand combat mods.

This mod is implemented by adding fake spells and a script that listens for when those spells are equipped, and immediately unequips them. For this reason the equip-spell animation plays for a split second. If you instantly press the button while that's playing, you could get a glitch where your character will do nothing or, in a very rare case, will fail to unequip the fake spell. And there's no way around this, sorry. You just have to not rush for mashing the button. Think of it as a way to balance out your newly gained ability to switch to blocking so quickly :) .

Update 1.4:
* Revamped implementation. The script is no longer on a reference alias, but on a magic effect that can be applied and removed just like any spell. Just type 'help "Favourite Fist Ability" in the console to get its ID and then use AddSpell/RemoveSpell. Also, if the script ever gets stuck and you end up having an invisible spell in your hand, just cast it and it will reset the effect.
Update 1.3:
* Improvement that should (in theory) decrease problems with load order and the mod not activating. Requires patch 1.6.
Update 1.2:
* Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented some or all of the powers from being added on game load.
Update 1.1:
* Fixed a bug that caused incompatibility with other mods.

The proble is I already have too much spells. I have two spells from Frostfall mod and two spells from more dynamic injuries + ofc all my standart spells that i need to use in fight.

Though I must admit, it does not solve the fundamental problem of not being able to hotkey an off-hand weapon. And neither will Favourite Fist, at the moment.

I use Borgut1337's Dual Wield Parrying mod myself. Link:

For blocking with sword and spell better use Dual wield parry insted of adding another spel, I think.l

Will this, potentially GOD-SEND of a MOD, fix the dual wielding problem?

A) I press: "1, 2" to fight with the dual wield setup below.
B) Then when health is low press "4, 4" to have dual hand healing, heal to 100%.
C) Then press "1, 2" again to go back to slashing with 2 hands with different weaps.
Left hand: dagger (hotkey: #1) <-- if this is a shield, it works perfectly...
Right hand: sword (hotkey: #2)
Bow (hotkey: #3)
Healing spell (hotkey: #4)
Sadly when I do "C" it just puts the dagger in to my right hand then the sword into my right hand. IT BLOWS MY MIND BETHESDA hasn't solved this fundamental problem.
