When I played through the demo of Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, I could never figure out how to rebind the movement keys. I prefer to use ESDF instead of the standard WASD, and while I was willing to adapt to WASD for the duration of the demo, I do not plan on purchasing the game unless I can use ESDF.

You can. From the menu, simply select Options > Controls > Controls and you're met with this screen:

By default:

  • F is Interact
  • E is Quick Mana Potion

You'll have to remap those keys first, followed by remapping the movement keys in the following order:

  • Right
  • Down
  • Left
  • Up

For some reason, mapping in another order bugs everything to F, rendering you immobile. If you follow this pattern, however, it works just fine!

Thanks for publishing the magic order in which keys must be bound. It was highly aggravating to see them stick together. And a hearty poke in the eyeball of whichever intern cobbled together the broken keybindings menu. – Ingmar Mar 3 '13 at 23:19
