Ragnarok Online – 52 Essential Shortcut Keys or Hot Keys

Within the Ragnorok Online interface you can utilise shortcut keys (or Hot Keys) to help speed up game play and make simple tasks a little easyer and faster to complete. Shortcut keys, just like in wondows, are a combination key press of 2 or 3 keys at the same time. They dont nesecery need to be pressed AT the same moment, just held down at the same time.

Example.  Hold down “ALT” key and then press “a” will Open your status window. Repeated pressing of “a” will toggle the window On and Off

Opening and Assigning Shortcut keys Bar

Ragnarok Key Bar WindowPress F12 to Open the Key bar.  Reapeatedly pressing F12 will open upto 4 bars.  You will notice the top line has the F numbers next to them, this will be the F key you need to press for that button to activate.  You can then drag a skill like First aid into this box from the Skills window and you have assigned First aid to the F1 key, it should look like this:

Rows 2,3 and 4 can be used as just Hot Bars or assigned to a new Shortcut key (or Hot Keys) from the “Shortcut Settings” Window
