    Enable the other hotkeys,you can have up to 12 IIRC.
    Just go to the command options and configurate it manually. :)

    Why not assign extra hotkeys? And place them more comfortable so you can reach all hotkeys with your left hand (assuming you are right handed)?




    Edit: Damn you Asheron! :p

    I suggest that you put Bone Armor // Tp// or any other ones that are quick and need to be recast in places below you belt keys (1-4) such as 5-7.

    this is sort of off topic but...
    why dun u guys move hot keys off of F keys. they r so far up there...
    here is mine
    some what how they r locatated on key board

    q=character w=inventory e=quest r=skill
    a=5 s=6 d=7 f=8
    z=1 x=2 c=3 v=4
    i think b,g r extras but i dun usually use them

    when u have a hotkey setup like this u can have all 4 fingers on an entire hot key row..and keep ur thumb on "alt" for item reveal..

    asdf = defensive or other skills, shields, golems, s masters, and f for tp scroll
    zxcv = offensive and multi, guided, spear, spirit, teeth, maybe revive on v for backup iono

    If you have a mouse wheel, it can cycle through the right side skills that you have hotkeyed... I try to get by with 4 or 5 hotkeys that I can switch from very quickly, and usually assign z,x to my left skill switches

    I use:
    asdfgh
    zxcvbn
    spacebar (for tp in hardcore, in-battle skill for softcore) - its easy to find/hit, hard to hit another key if your goin for it

    lmao :lol:

    I use the "F"s by more habit than efficiency. I guess you just get used to it after doing it for quite some time.

    hmmm...for a pvm bonamancer I use this:

    F1-Bone Spear
    F2-Bone Spirit
    F3-Bone Armor
    F4-Revive
    F5-Amp
    F6-Decrep
    F7-Terror
    F8-Iron Maiden
    F9-Confuse
    F10-Dim Vision
    F11-Bone Wall
    F12-Bone Prison (charges ;) )
    Backspace-Corpse Explosion
    = - Teeth
    ]- Clay Golem
    [- Fire Golem

    This is crazy... I've never had the need to go higher than f6 on any character.

    Depends on your character class. I only need 3-4 hotkeys on barbs, but necros require MANY hotkeys since the curses you use are usually very situational.

    Use the Function keys for the ones you use less, but still come in handy sometimes. Bone armor, bone wall, bone prison, less used golems... that type of skills. Use other hotkeys for the ones you use most.

    What you do in the config controls screen is assign a letter to skill 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,.... Then you go back to the game. Click on the box related to either the left or right mouse button holding the skills. Hover over a skill.Then press one of the letters that you assigned to skill 1, 2, 3,... etc in the config controls menu.

    I keep

    q w e r
    a s d f
    z x c v

    As my quick keys for curses and direct damage.

    I also use F1-F4 for stuff I don't usually need to do quickly like summoning.
