Option 1: Point and Click Navigation. Simply click on the location you wish your character to move to, and they will travel to that desired point. Hold down the right mouse button to look around the world; you can also do this while using the arrow keys on your keyboard.
Option 2: Shaiya also supports WASD Keyboard Movement. Pressing "W" will move your character forward; "S" will move them backward; "A" will turn your character to the left; "D" will turn your character to the right; "Q" will make your character strafe left; and "E" will make your character strafe to the right.

- Double-tapping "S" will make your character perform a leaping action.
- Pressing the space bar makes your character jump.

When an enemy is on the screen you can attack them by placing your mouse cursor over them. When the cursor turns into a sword you can click on them once to target them.
You can now either cast a spell or use a skill to attack your enemy, or simply click on them again to perform your normal attack.
