When I started to get some points in the catapult room in the Warriors' Guild, I noticed that the four defencive modes used to protect yourself during the activity do not have the option to be activated by keybinds.

Since there is no need to do stuff from the action bar during the activity, it would be handy to have the numbers 1-4 to switch between the four defencive modes, similar to the burial armour in the Artisans' Workshop, the dancing platforms from the Fayre and the weight training from the Beach.
(The only thing that might be needed on the action bar is food for those that are so bad at it that they need food to survive from the <40 damage dealt for every wrong decision, but you better exit the room and run to the bank downstairs to get healed fully in a couple of seconds for free. It could be that this even doesn't work since the inventory itself is disabled in the room, and the keybinded action to eat something from your inventory might be disabled as well.) See below.

Since the activity gives one of the lowest amounts of points over time compared to the other activities in the Guild, it would be nice to succeed more as one can sometimes (not often though) move the cursor not far enough or move it too far and miss the intended button (those buttons are not that high and are quite close together). Having keybinds would circumvent the tediousness to move the cursor around.
It would also remove the need to look to where the cursor is and where to bring it to since you can put some fingers on the right buttons and press the right button every time the dwarf shoots something at you.

EDIT: yesterday, my guinea pig bit my index finger of my right hand quite hard, the one I use to click with my mouse, so doing it now is now uncomfortable as well using either a sensitive finger or a finger I'm not comfortable clicking with. Keybinds are in this case also easier to use since you have more fingers available to push the right buttons.

Original message details are unavailable.
Could be helpful I guess


Thanks for the support! (I guess?)

I checked and the action bar is completely disabled when wielding the shield, both keybinds as clicking the things directly, so you can't eat at all.
Also, my finger has healed.

Another argument to have the defence-style-choice-thingymabox updated: the buttons are still brown from when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth the pre-NXT era. It doesn't really fit with the blue of the surrounding thingymabox.

The buttons became blue recently, but still no keybinds... Creator of the quarterly M.U.P.A.Q. and I.B.A.T.A.W.A.T. Awards™. Do you notice unhelpful but non-trolling posts? Or someone asking a question for which the answer was already given? Nominate them here!

Very similar content that was more afk than this had the option to use keybinds instead, so it would only be logical that this is treated the same. It doesn't have it because it was added to the game many years before keybinds existed.
