Per in-game tooltips, I can see that one may press A or B to open the Attack or Ranged Attack menus, respectively (as well as to do nearly everything in-game without the mouse).

However, is it possible to actually attack without the mouse? Can I use only my keyboard to attack? I have a bit of repetitive strain injury on my right hand, so I'd like to go full-keyboard if at all possible.

Solutions not involving 3rd-party software highly preferred.

    I can't say for certain but I think you can hit enter or some other affirmative key to trigger the attack - as for swapping targets, I'm not sure

  • Do you consider the Windows native accessibility features as "third-party software" or not?

    @Mark Ehh, I don't currently have any PCs with Windows on them, so it wouldn't be useful to me, or answer the question precisely as-stated (2K/Aspyr is the 1st party; I am the second party; PC/OS vendors would indeed be a 3rd party) — though it might be useful to others as a non-canonical answer.

  • What specifically are you have problems with? The num pad on your keyboard should be able to provide the directionality, and you already indicate that you've got the melee/ranged attack triggers working... May 19 at 2:45
  • @RoddyoftheFrozenPeas Nope, that doesn't work. I just tested: took an Archer who had a shot on an enemy city 2 squares NW of him, pressed B to open the Ranged Attack menu, pressed 7, and the archer walked towards the city rather than firing. All 3 squares were flat, so it wasn't an issue of a hill blocking the shot. May 22 at 8:56
