I am happy as can be even if I cant login atm.

Another ffxiv site showed screenshots that SE has implemented keyboard remapping!

Finally I can put my camera to the arrow keys like ffxi!

Yes, it can be remapped... though I can't quite GET the arrow keys to map! Every time I hit the arrow keys it just moves me to the next box/key to be mapped! >.<

Edit: Yup, tried again. Doesn't work...

The arrow keys are under the "Lock Keys" which I don't think can be altered.

You're on Allah, just posting can be turned into an argument.

It's a little quirky, but yes, finally, we can remap the keyboard. So glad SE listened to the multitudes of people complaining about this.

'No Duh' solution #15, approved!

I'd have been a bit worried if they left out something this simple :).

So there's no way to change the "lock keys" to something else?
Guess the only choice is to remap the keys with another software then.
This site contains a few programs for that purpose:

How have you been remapping??? I can't even play the way the keys are now, and can't get the arrows to change to camera. the mouse is useless.

I guess not >.<

I spoke to soon when i saw the screenshots. When I was able to get in, i too was unable to get the arrow keys to be used for camera. GDI!

Not every key can be remapped. Will probably have to use a 3rd party program to map back to my ffxi control set. I don't play with a mouse, I'm all keyboard so I like my menu key to be the ";" button. ";" can not be mapped to ; ; nor can the "\" or the "~". /sigh :3

I never strafe, instead just pushing forward + left/right at the same time, so I'll probably make camera panning 7 and 9 while zooming in and out will be handled by Page Up/Down. Will be nice to get out of WASD ****, though.
Violence good. **** bad. Yay America.

How do you get your newly remapped keyboard settings to save?
