As a newish player to hon im interested to find out how people are using keyboard shortcuts in hon and if people are remapping keys differently for specific heroes. I'm finding it hard to get use to using numbers keys for abilities as I'm too used to the wasd keys so please post ur hon setups smile.gif

qwer -> skills
alt+qwer -> 4 itemslots, you shouldn't need more than 4 clickies for your items and your thumb should always be above the alt-key
1 -> focus hero
a -> attack
f -> hold

That are pretty much the same keybindings as the defaults, but I think they are quite nice smile.gif

I use the default one, they are very good. I should probably change my hero to be 1 instead of F1, but CTRL+F1 fixes that laugh.gif

Like Tedde said. They changed it to QWE from DFG a long time ago. You should play or read patch notes more often. tongue.gif

I use default but changed hold to 'd' and I bind my hero to 1 and monkey to 2.
When i play i leave my left hand on top of the keys 'qwef' when I need to use ulti i move my index finger to r when i need to use items I use alt+q for a healing item(Bottle, potions, battery) alt+w for marchers or portal key alt+s for kuldra or other items and if i have a 4th clickable item i use alt+a.
