Hotkeys

Hotkeys are keyboard shortcuts that allow users to quickly access certain features or execute actions in MMORPGs. In Ragnarok Online and Ragnarok Online II, hotkeys are generally used to initiate skills in the game.

Ragnarok Online[edit | edit source]

Although RO allowed players to assign up to 3 rows of hotkeys, hotkeys were limited to the F keys (F1-F9). As such, players could only view one row of hotkeys at a time via the F12 button. It wasn't until the Renewal update that players were not only allowed to customize hotkeys, but were also given the option to see up to 4 rows of hotkeys at once. In RO, the hotkey bars can be placed anywhere on the UI, allowing flexible UI customization.

Ragnarok Online II[edit | edit source]

RO2 allows players to use up to 3 rows of hotkeys with full hotkey customization. Unlike RO, RO2's hotkeys are fixed to the UI menu bar and is transparent to not hinder the view of their characters.

Macros[edit | edit source]

Macro is a computing process that allows for a string of hotkeys to be automated for efficiency. Some PC peripherals are designed specifically for macros, which can aid in alleviating the strain of doing tasks that require excessive amounts of mouse-clicks and button presses. Macros are different from complete automation, or botting, in that button presses and mouse-clicks are still necessary for macros to even work. As such, macros have limitations when it comes to automating tasks in video games and are thus widely approved by game developers for players to utilize.
