    Edit: what's potentially silly is it probably does take an object interaction to use your free hand to take up your arcane focus to use as part of a spell. But that's an opinion on my part. It's not explicit.
    It seems like the only reason to ever use a focus instead of a fanny pack is if the focus has special properties ala magic items.

    Personally I think a gish should wield a weapon in one hand and a focus in the other, but that's a limitation most people would dislike so I understand why they would allow workarounds.
