Controls interface

This article is about the controls interface that allows you to customise your camera and your keybinds. For the controls of the game, see Controls.



Settings icon

The controls interface is part of the Settings management interface, accessed by pressing 'Esc' on your keyboard, or by pressing the settings icon on the ribbon. followed by 'Controls'. This interface allows you to view and manage your keyboard shortcuts which will open various interfaces or allow you to take other actions in the game such as activating combat abilities.

It cannot be removed from the Settings interface and therefore cannot be moved or otherwise manipulated.

The table below lists the keybinds that you can manage, and settings that you can change through this interface.

Shortcuts with red backgrounds cannot be customised.
Shortcuts with purple backgrounds can be customised. They have no key assigned to them until you choose to assign one.
Shortcuts with green backgrounds can be customised. They have keys assigned to them by default, but these can be changed.

Note that when in Legacy mode the interface functions roughly the same. The only difference is that it will have a slightly different appearance, will not let you set action bar keybinds, and it can be accessed via the options menu, rather than the ribbon.
