Basic Controls and Interactions

Basic controls you really want to know before you play (that are not obvious).
Version 1.2 / No spoilers.

Highlight interactable objects by holding the alt key. Containers are generally not highlighted.

Highlight creatures and characters by pressing the tilde key (the key left of 1).
– Enemies are red; threats you can talk to are yellow ; friendlies are green.

Camera rotation: by default, you can use the Middle Mouse Button or use the keys Delete / End. We recommend you change this to something useful like q and e.

Before doing a Long Rest, consider that you can do a few Short Rests before. This is done with a button near the minimap (top-right). Almost all classes regain some features after a Short Rests and you heal an amount of HP (rolls your HP dice modified by your Constitution modifier bonus).

Inspecting : right-clicking offers options (for things under your cursor). This includes inspecting a creature to evaluate its capacities. It is also helpful for lockpicking.

Cancel a selected action of any kind by right-clicking.

Destroy objects, even chests, by holding the Ctrl key while you attack the object. Note this can destroy the contents (! at least in Early Access), so it is not recommended.

You can set weapons/arrows on fire or apply other substances using the Dip bonus action.

Disengage manoeuver to avoid Attacks of opportunity : currently in the game, the Jump bonus action is also the Disengage manoeuver (usually an Action in the pen-and-paper version).

You can move objects (mouse drag) and place them in a way that allows you to climb upwards. You can also place containers inside your inventory and even send them to your camp.

Moving characters separately out of combat: there are two methods …
– A character in stealth can move away without being followed by the rest of the party.
– You can drag a portrait (bottom left) to detach the character from the party movements.

Switch characters easily by pressing F1 F2 F3 F4.
– Even when in dialogue, you can switch character. This can open up various possibilities …

Changing party members: talking to a companion allows you to ask them to stay at the camp (note that, inside the camp, you may need to talk to them more than once to see this option). You should then be able to ask another companion to join the active party. We will do more tests and try to find a better method.

Selling items: you *must* cilck the balance icon at the bottom for the vendor to give you gold, otherwise you are giving your stuff away for free! It is recommended to always Quicksave before trading/bartering.

Quickly mark items as “Wares” (stuff to sell/vendor) by shift+clicking the items.
– There is no quick sell button at the moment. A trick is to put junk items in a container and then sell the whole container (worked in DOS: not tested yet in BG3). You can filter, in the vendor window, to show only the “wares”.

Actions you can do in combat are highlighted: for example, if you have used your Bonus Action on a given turn, all manoeuvers or usable items that require a Bonus Action will be dimmed.
