Command Window

The command interface can be accessed by pressing the "D" key on yout keyboard. This will open up a command menu that will show you possible actions that your character can do. This is an alternative to using the /<command> fucntion.

Most actions in the command window will require you to target a player in order to execute the action Reassigning Shortcut Keys

The Q, W, E, shortcut keys are by default assigned to Healing items, Mana restoring potions, and Antidote/Cure potions respectively. You can reassign a new item to the shortcut keys by moving your mouse over an item in your inventory (e.g. a town teleport scroll) and then pressing CTRL and the letter where you would like to assign it to (for example "Q"). Shortcut key "Q" will now be a shortcut to use the town teleport scroll instead of Healing items. You can only assign shortcuts to the letters Q, W and E.

Binding Spells

You can assign shortcut keys to your skills and/or spells with the numbers 1 to 0. Click the skill/spell button at the bottom-middle of your screen and all the skills/spells you learned or acquired will appear. Hover over one of the skill/spell and press CTRL and a number you would like to assign the skill/spell to (i.e. CTRL + 1). Now, whenever you press the number 1 your current skill will switch to the skill assigned to that number.

Using macros

You can also assign shortcut keys to messages that you use frequently, like "Hello, how are you?" To assign these shortcut keys, you need to open your chat box by hitting the ENTER key. Next, type "/1" (without the quotes) <SPACE> and the message that you want assigned. This will assign your message to the number 1. Your stored messages are accessible by pressing the ALT key and the number you assigned your message to (in this case, the number 1). You can assign messages to the numbers 1 to 0.

Game Navigation

Game Interface | Game Navigation | Game Communication | Game Guide | Back to Top


Walking is the most basic mode of exploring the MU Continent. In town areas walking is the only means of transport allowed. Walking is achieved by pointing the location you'd like to move to and then clicking the left mouse button.


If your character has acquired shoes that have a base + of 5 or more, he/she will be able to run. If you click a point far away from a character's starting point, he/she will begin to run to that point. Running allows a character to move at twice the speed of walking.

Leaning and Sitting

Players can interact with the environment such as leaning on walls or sitting on chairs. However, these are not merely for show, but actually restore the physical strength of the characters.

Note: Another way of restoring health quickly is to use health potions or to have items with health recovery equipped.

Leaning and sitting is available only at certain areas and at the towns. The visible look of the mouse cursor changes where special motions are possible, such as protruded walls or chairs.


In the land of MU, one unique method of transportation is to mount a creature called "Unicorn" by acquiring and equipping a horn of Unicorn. One can travel at a speed faster than running with the Unicorn equipped.
You can acquire a Unicorn's horn through hunting or through purchase from other adventurers.


Once a character's level is over 50, warping between areas becomes possible. While you can move from point to point by walking or with the use of a mount, traveling by these methods is often tedious and time consuming. Therefore, adventurers who have attained a level over 50 can take advantage of traveling by warping. The use of this movement command is quite simple. However, each area has certain level limits dictated by your preferred choice of either walking or by application of the warp movement command and warping to different areas cost a certain amount of zen.

Player to Player Interaction

You can send messages by pressing the enter key, which will bring up the chat box. Chatting this way sends a public message that can be read by all.

MU provides a function allowing you to chat with other users. To chat, press Enter on your keyboard to initiate the chat option and after typing your message, press Enter again. The Chatting window is used as a tool for conversations, but it also works as a console for special functions like moving or trading. Upon pressing the Enter key, the Chat window will appear at the bottom of the screen. Messages will appear within a bubble and people within your vicinity will be able to read them.

People close to you can hear general conversations, but by use of the Whisper function, you will be able to have conversations with people who are outside the vicinity of the normal chat function. Whispering is a player-to-player conversation and other players will be unable to eavesdrop. When a highlighted ear-shaped icon appears, this indicates that the Whisper function is currently active. With the simple click of your mouse, you can activate or deactivate this function. Whispering is possible with a maximum of 5 players.

MU has a function that allows characters to respond to particular conversations by showing animation relevant to the conversations. Characters in MU not only speak, but can also perform a wide variety of motions to help players fully immerse themselves with their characters. The emoticons available in MU are also gender-specific. For example, a Fairy, a female character will perform animated gestures and motions visually distinct and different from male characters, like the Dark Knight and Dark Sorcerer. At present, 22 emoticons are available, a number upon which more will be increased steadily in the future.
