Hotkeys can be remapped in the Hotkeys section of the Settings options which can be accessed by pressing “ESC”.
All spells will immediately be put onto your action bar when you first use them, and you can move them around by simply dragging them from one slot to another. You can also add spells or items to the action bars by dragging them from your Spellbook, bag, bank, or Character Info interface to the desired location on an action bar. To remove a spell, drag the selected spell off the action bar.
The chat window is broken up into two parts, the general section and the combat log. The general section contains chat messages from other players and NPCs. They combat log contains messages about the spells and abilities that you and other players and NPCs have recently used.
You can customize the appearance of your chat window by clicking the exclamation point in the bottom left-hand corner of the window. In this menu you may change the font type, font size, lock or unlock the window, minimize the window, or clear all messages in the window.

As you explore the world of Sarnaut you will notice many floating icons over the head of NPCs as well as around the corners of your interface. Each different icon represents a different type of NPC that you may interact with. For example, NPCs that give quests can be identified by yellow exclamation points, weapon and armor merchants can be identified by a shield and sword, and profession trainers have a pair of scissors floating over their head. You may turn these icons on and off with the drop down menu that appears when you click on the small arrow to the left of the compass.
