Hello, I post here to give tips and maybe discuss the possible keybinds you can use to play D3. If you have your ideas feel free to post them.
It is important for many people to bind skills and other important functions to somewhat "optimized" keys which stay close to your fingers, so you can react as fast as possible and sometimes make the difference between life and death.
This can be very useful for new players, so if you don't need to learn more about keybinds feel free to leave.
I yet have to test with all 6 skills slots activated. (basically you have at max. 4 skills slots in the beta)
So, here are my keybinds :
Skills : LMB RMB 1 2 3 4 (untouched)
Move : e
Potion : r
Force stand still : tab
Town portal : d
Show map : v
All of the other keys can be the starting one or any one you choose.
Another idea for a great key to use is be the spacebar, because it lays on your thumb (don't let that thumb be lazy!!).
The pinky of my left hand rests on tab, using tab to stand still so you can stop moving and cast skills with the left mouse button changes everything. Also, all the skills are easily accessible, and my index is on the e key (using the e key to move might be a bit advanced for new players though). The Potion key is really important, though it's situational, so i put it on the r key, a short move by the index is necessary. Other possible keybinds for town portal are f, t. The key forShow map can be anything really, but don't keep it too far.
I also have 2 other keys i could use which are on my mouse, but i dont have other important functions to add. You might want a show items button, but I just use the option to toggle showing items forever on/off and I almost never need to touch this key.
