Lost Ark: How to Change Mouse Controls

Wondering how to change your mouse controls in Lost Ark to suit your playstyle? Here's what to do.

The mouse controls in Lost Ark can give players some pause when starting a new character. Your ARPG experience will play a big part in which mouse control scheme you choose when starting out, but you don't have to stick with it if you want to change your mouse controls.

Changing which mouse button is used for what is easy enough in Lost Ark, so let's go into how to change them up if you don't like your initial control choice.

How to Change Mouse Controls in Lost Ark

Some ARPGs want you to right-click to move and left-click to attack, and some want you to left-click to attack and right-click to move. Lost Ark lets you choose which one you're using at a given time, you've just got to go into your options and make an adjustment.

Here's how to change mouse controls in Lost Ark:

  1. Press the Escape key
  2. Click on Settings on the bottom row
  3. Click on Hotkeys
  4. Click on Basic Controls
  5. Check or uncheck "Attack with Right-click"

Whether you have to check or uncheck depends, of course, on what you initially selected when you made your character. Save your settings from here and give them a shot — hopefully, they make that bit of difference.
