Here is a complete list of all default PC mouse and keyboard controls in FFXIV in case you need it.

Final Fantasy XIV players who switched from controller to keyboard and mouse may need the controls laid out for them as they make the adjustment. Using either a controller or a keyboard is perfectly viable in FFXIV, but there are far more benefits to using a keyboard and mouse than a controller.
