Almost every control is changeable in Lost Ark PC. This unfortunately does not include mouse controls since they are pretty much locked in place. Here is how you can change your keybinds in Lost Ark PC.

  • Open up the Game Menu by pressing the ESC button.
  • Locate and click the Settings Tab at the bottom of the menu and wait for the new window to pop up.
  • Click on the Hotkeys drop down box. From there, you can choose the type of controls you want to change.
  • Once you’ve selected a category, simply click on the hotkey you want to change and add a new one in place of it.

Do note that choosing an already active hotkey will unbind it from the previous action. So make sure you assign a new one to that as well.
