Lost Ark is already setting itself up to be one of the top MMO games of 2022, with thousands flocking to its servers using Founder's Packs to grab early access to the game before its official launch. First released by Smilegate in South Korea in 2019, the MMOARPG title is now launching worldwide, and fans are clearly excited.
Before you settle in for a long Lost Ark session, and perhaps before you even select your character and choose a class, you'll want to get comfortable. Part of this comfort comes from ensuring that your Lost Ark mouse controls and settings are just right, especially your mouse settings and hotkeys.
Making sure your mouse controls and hotkeys are all bound and set up correctly will make a world of difference to any MMO player's experience, and everyone sets things up differently. In this guide, we explain exactly how you can change your mouse settings, controls, and hotkeys in Lost Ark.
Lost Ark Mouse Controls and Settings
When playing Lost Ark and venturing around Arkasia, you'll primarily control your character using your mouse. Players will get to choose whether they use their mouse for movement or attacking, and depending on how you prefer to play ARPGs or MMOs, you may want to switch this up.

Additionally, you're likely going to want to check your other hotkeys are binded correctly, and this can fortunately all be checked and changed in one place. To change your mouse settings and other controls, access the Escape menu and select 'Settings' in the lower right-hand corner. Then select 'Hotkeys' and 'Basic Controls', as shown above.
From here, you can specifically turn off attacking using your mouse by unchecking the 'Attack with Right-Click' box. Furthermore, you can play around with plenty of other mouse settings and keybinds here, too. You can also make specific adjustments to your controls for navigating Arkasia and using your skills or items.
That's all you need to know when it comes to changing your mouse settings and controls in Lost Ark. It really is as simple as that. While you're in your settings, be sure to set an AFK timer, and if you're looking to get the most out of Lost Ark, we recommend locating a Powerpass too. This pass will let you level up another character, and if you aren't sure which class you'd like to try next, our tier list of all the available classes has some suggestions. We've also got handy guides for Lost Ark pets and Lost Ark mounts, too.
