Movement

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Movement of characters is controlled by means of the movement keys, or by using the mouse. Mouse movement uses path planning to move the character to the clicked destination in the most efficient path.

You can also press the "R" key, which will enable your character to run automatically. This is useful while trying to communicate with other players.

Heroes and henchmen who by default always follow their player counterpart, can only be moved separately by means of hero flags set with the mouse.

  • In PvE, foes will automatically move away if they are the target of an AoE skill. This can be used to trigger skills requiring a moving target such as "None Shall Pass!".
