There are two ways that you can move in Allods Online. With WASD Movement, “W” will move you forward, “A” and “D” will cause you to strafe left and right, “S” will move you backward, “SPACEBAR” will cause you to jump, and “Q” and “E” will turn you left and right.
To use click-to-move you must first enable it under the Settings menu. Once it is enabled, left-clicking on any location will automatically move you to that location. Additionally, you may also left-click on a NPC or player to automatically move you to them.
To move your camera hold down the left or right mouse button and rotate to view the world. Note that the only way to view your character from the front is to use the left mouse button. The right mouse button will rotate your character in the direction the camera is rotating. To zoom in or out you may use your mouse wheel.
Interacting with NPCs
Clicking on an NPC will cause their character portrait to appear to the right of yours. To interact with an NPC, such a quest giver, merchant, or class trainer, you must move close to them before clicking on them. A window with text and options will appear allowing you to read the NPC’s message and select the option you desire. To stop talking to an NPC, simply walk away from them or close the text window by clicking the X in the top right-hand corner.
You will need to gather many items throughout your adventures in Sarnaut! Many quests require you to collect items from your surrounding environment, and in some professions such as herbalism you will need to gather crafting materials such as plants. To help you find gatherable items, you can make them light up by pressing “T”. Once you find a gatherable item you can gather it by simply right-clicking on it.
You will also need to gather items that drop from NPCs that you have defeated. To gather the items you can right-click on the bag that appears near their corpse and then left-click on the items that appear. To successfully gather any items you must have open space in your bag.
There are several actions such as interacting with NPCs or items that are called context actions. In Allods Online these actions can be completed by using special buttons on the interface that will appear between your two bottom action bars. They will appear if you are close enough to an NPC or item to interact with it, and can be executed by pressing “Z” or “X”.
There are two ways to use spells in Allods Online. You may right-click on any spell in your Spellbook or action bar. You character will then begin using this ability. Spells do not automatically repeat once they have completed, so you will need to right-click on the spell to use it again.
Additionally, you may also use the hotkeys that correspond with each spell on the action bars. Once again, spells do not automatically repeat once they are completed, so you will need to continue to press the hotkeys to use each spell.
Certain spells can be prepared in advance which will remain queued until you cast them. When you are ready, you can cast them by clicking the spell on your action bar or pressing the corresponding hotkey. Once you do choose to cast the queued up spell it will cast instantly and you will then need to begin casting your next spell. Beyond the one spell you may queue, most offensive spells may only be used while in combat while defensive spells can generally be cast out of combat.
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.
Learning New Spells and Abilities
As you level you will automatically learn certain spells and abilities which will help you become more powerful. However, to make sure you are as strong as you can be, you will need to allocate talent points as well as use rubies into your talent tree and talent grids. To access the talent tree and talent grids click the Talents button on the left tool bar, or simply press “N”.
Sometimes spending talent points or rubies will simply give you a higher rank of a spell or ability you already know. However, sometimes you will be able to learn entirely new spells or abilities. Spells and abilities you have already learned can be found in your Spellbook by clicking the Spellbook button on the right tool bar or by pressing “P”.
Allods Online has a built in screenshot function that will allow you to take a picture of everything on your screen in-game. You may even remove the UI to take cleaner and nicer looking screenshots by pressing “ALT-Z”. Once you have set up the screenshot as you would like, you may press “SCROLL LOCK” or “PRINT SCREEN” to take a screenshot.
Screenshots are automatically stored in the game directory in a Screenshots folder which can be found at C:\gPotato.com\Allods Online\Personal\Screenshots. Screenshots are automatically saved as JPGs.
