You can take 4 slots of items into battle, but you must have a free slot to cast. This means, before casting, I have to toss my sword to ground then swap the active spell so it refreshes and allows me to cast. This was my solution after forgetting to swap my weapons before a siege for the fifth time.
Again, you can’t cast with sword, bow, arrows, and magic equipped, but you can take them all into battle and drop what you don’t need, then cast spells.
