How to quickly change weapons?

Is there real time weapon switching in this game or do we have to keep switching via menu to switch from a sword to a bow?

You can assign two items/spells to the left/right buttons on the d-pad which allows you to switch without opening a menu.

In the that menu, press and hold (like 2 seconds) either left or right on the D-pad, this will become quick-change buttons.

Too bad it's limited to just 2 options on the left hand... hurray for being a lefty!?

There's a BIT of real-time switching. You can assign weapons/shields and spells (and I think armor, I haven't bothered trying) to a "favorites" menu, which is a lot easier to switch between than the normal menu. But there's one thing many people don't know: If you hold down left or right on the D-pad while in the favorites menu, the item you've highlighted will be set to a "quick-change" button. When walking around, just tap left or right on the D-pad to switch out the weapon.

Sadly, because of the limited number of buttons, on the controller, you can only assign two of them. The favorites menu is still relatively quick to scroll through, though.
