Basic Controls

Moving your character - Hold down the right mouse button and point your cursor in the direction you wish to travel. You can also use the number pad for movement (Be sure to check the option in the options menu).

Running- is achieved by moving your cursor towards the far edge of the screen.  If using the NUMPAD you may toggle run/walk via the "5" key.

Moving items - Many items in the world can be taken by players, Hold down the left mouse button over the item you wish to pick up. Then while continuing to hold the mouse button drag the item to where you wish to put it then let go of the left mouse button. You can drag items to your pack by dragging them to your character or the brown pack button above your avatar doll. (Note: You must be close to an item on the world map or you will not be able to pick it up)

Equip/Un-Equip Items - In the same way items can be moved around the world, you can drag/drop items on and off your avatar doll on the right hand side of the game menu.

Item Information - You can get detailed item information by hovering your mouse cursor over an item or by clicking the item. A detailed item view panel will appear to the left or right of your screen. If you clicked on the item the panel will stick there until you right click to close it.

Splitting an Item Pile - Many items in the game can be condensed into item piles such as gold coins or arrows. To divide these piles simply click on the item and  in the item information panel specify the amount you wish to split the pile by.

Stacking Items- Many items you will find throughout your travels will be "stackable" (i.e. Gold, gems, arrows, food and many others). Dragging an item of this type on top of another item (either in your pack or in the game world itself) will stack these items into piles. This will help immensely towards keeping your pack organized.

Attacking - Use tab to set or change your attack target. Your character will automatically swing or fire at your attack target when it is close enough to hit. Some items such as barrels, powder kegs and some walls can be attacked as well. You can use Ctrl+C to stop attacking.

You can either target with the mouse by left clicking the object you wish to target or press the number/character on the keyboard underneath the character you wish to target.

Talking/Buying/Selling/etc - Many NPCS will talk to you or buy/sell goods with you, to speak with them simply move relatively close to them and double click on them.
