Riot, any chance of adding a potion/ward slot to the item bar?

Games do not often last this long anymore, but there have been many times where I (or an ally) have had to sell an item in order to make room for oracle(or a ward etc). This seems strange to me.

It is possible this is intentional, but i do not see why. The potions/wards are supposed to be temporary buffs. Why should they not be chooseable if you have a full item bar?

Would it be possible to get a 7th slot that only accepts 1 type of potion/ward? This way characters who are full up can still purchase wards (which i love to use late game).

If it is not possible, can i have an explanation of the reasoning behind it?

A reasoned and reasonable request. This deserves Riot.

This is a great idea.

Or at the very least to be able to drag-n-drop the items to a different item slot (say from slot 6 to slot 1).

it'll probably get implimented about the same time Riot allows you to customize each character's "Recommended Builds"

Recommended builds is a pipe dream that i love. But since riot seems to change the HUD every patch, i dont think it would be hard to add a seventh box. At all.

But if it is a problem, i would love to hear why.

Riot's throwing different ideas on how to handle this around the drawing board.

They're working on it, but ETA is unknown to me .

I always felt that stealth heroes got gimped a bit hard with wards and such. Especially late game it should be a decision to keep a ward or elixir on you vs another item. This forces your team to decide who should carry ward (IE who gets hurt the least by only having 5 item slots) or who is the safest to put an elixir on. If your having trouble with filling all 6 slots maybe your whole team is not, ask if someone else can pick up a ward for you.

Also I want to be able to trade pots, I loved in DotA having one player go shopping for both in a lane. That or give me a chicken.
