Option 1: Mouse Movement

Point and Click method. Simply click on a location you wish your character to run to and they will. Hold down the right mouse button to look around the world. You can also do this using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

Option 2: Mouse and Keyboard Movement

You can use a combination of mouse and keyboard (good old fps style), holding down your W to move forward and steering by holding down your right mouse button.

Option 3: Keyboard Movement

You can use just the keyboard for movement, see the hotkey descriptions at the top of the page.

Revolver Bar

New addition to AGE Shaiya, Oct 21, 2009

The Revolver bar allows you to set up skills so they can be used in rotation, one after the other. In it's initial configuration the Revolver has only three slots, but can be expanded so as to sequence up to six skills, though only three will be visible at any given time. Additionally, up to four different Revolvers can be configured. These extra Revolvers can be selected by using Alt+1, Alt+2, Alt+3, and Alt+4. The Revolver bar number is displayed on the left hand side.

25g70py.jpg The Number is which Revolver bar is currently displayed
The Circular Arrow allows you to orient the bar either vertically or horizontally
The R Button (between Circle n Y) resets the Revolver to its Start Action, as does pressing Alt-R
The Y button opens the configuration area to add / remove skills or slots.
The < and > at the top allow you to select which skill is currently keyed to R

After clicking on the Y button, the Revolver can now be configured for number of slots present.

Once you have the number of slots for that particular bar set, you can now add the skills to it.

344xfmt.jpg Simply drag and drop skills in the configuration slots just as you would for the normal hot-key bars
Once all the skills are in place, click Y again to close the configuration slots
2lucal3.jpg To use the current skill in the Revolver bar, simply press R.
The current skill will be used and the next skill in line will be advanced so that it is now keyed to R.

The revolver bar will stop once it hits an empty space and the smallest configuration is 3 slots. But what if you only want to queue up two skills ? The simplest solution is to expand the bar to four slots and fill the four slots with the two skills you wish to use alternating them ( i.e. Skill 1 / Skill 2 / Skill 1 / Skill 2 ).

Z / X Bar

New addition to AGE Shaiya, Oct 21, 2009

9u0z8n.jpgThis bar is for potions only, freeing up to two spaces on another hot-key bar
Just drag-n-drop your potions here as you would have done for the regular hot-key bars
2lo0nfc.jpgJust tap Z or X to use the new hot-keys
Once a slot empties, the Z / X Bar will automatically restock that slot with the same potion, if you have any
