  1. What is a hotkey bar? hotkey bars are rectangular windows that a player can keep visable on his/her screen which allows placement of up to 10 hotkeys per bar.
  2. What is a hotkey? A hotkey allows you to use self-created macros and abilities you receive while your character grows.
  3. How many different hotkeys can I use? Currently the game allows 200 hotkeys, divided by 20 hotkey bars. This might seem a lot, but when actively playing and leveling you will discover that you quickly reach your limits.
  4. How do I know which hotkeys are available?
HotkeyBar

Green: Not yet available for use (recharging).
Blue: Disabled hotkey. Common reasons are: Ability is not available (different adventure school or obsolete), spell has been deleted, item is no longer in inventory.

Creating a hotkey using Drag and DropEdit

The easiest and most common used method of creating a hotkey is the Drag and Drop method. This is accomplished by dragging:

  1. An ability from (C)haracter screen – Abilities tab.
  2. A spell from the Spell (B)ook
  3. A formula from the (F)ormula Book
  4. An item like food or potions from your (I)nventory or backpack pouch inside your inventory.

The “Text Command” is used to create hotkeys containing Slash Commands and chat interaction. Please refer to the Slash Commands page for detailed info about all available commands.

Apart the above commands there are also parameters available. Parameters replace themselves with currently wanted information. One example: You want to create a greetings macro saying: "Hello, <player>. Hope you had a good day so far?". Since you do not want to insert the player name everytime you can use the %t% parameter, which inserts the selected player's name automatically.

Available parameters:

Command Explanation
 %n% Displays your own name (excluding Title)
 %t% Displays the target’s full name (including Title)
 %l% Displays the coordinates of your current location
 %r% Displays the target’s current rating
