Keyboard movement - turning, not strafing?

I really don't like moving by clicking. I like using the 4 arrow keys on the keyboard (I use my mouse lefthanded). 

You can do this, but you can't seem to be able to turn left or right, only strafe. Am I just stuck with strafing?

    I don't play Forsaken World but i take it you've tried Q & E or Z & C for turning?


    Check the keybinds in game as it will be there if it's possible. I usually just prefer strafing with the keyboard and right mouse button for turning.

    The keyboard movement is quite weird; WASD/Arrow Keys causes the character to run in that direction (No strafing or backpeddaling) and you need to hold down the Right Mouse button to turn. I'd say that the game was designed to be played with the mouse for movement, with WASD being thrown in as an afterthought.

    does this mean that you can not customize the key bindings in this game?

    If I didn't remember wrong, you can hold your right mouse button, and turn, it will be stafting instead of turning

     The most I can suggest here is to check your keyboard options. Toy with those a bit, and you'll be able to move normally just like in any MMO.

    Do you know how to fix it to where you can turn though?  That is one thing that is really bugging me in this game, not a real big deal but definately bugging me.  I haven't found anything in the keybindings to suggest turning, or camera turning, or a camera follow option,  so I assume I am missing something here.

    it isnt really straffing,the mecanic is real life try running full speed and turn 90 degres in real life you wont you ll strife

    this is it!so if you stop going forward then turn and start running again you will have turn 90 degre it take getting used to but once you got the hang of it it actually make sense!saw some player do this in pvp and i was like how the eck did he turn 90 degre he just played with the w key a bit and continued whatever he was trying to achieve in pvp it was hilarious to whatch lol.
