Lost Ark provides players with three effective methods for pinging. To ping while playing, simply hover the mouse cursor over any area of the screen, hold down the "CTRL" key, and click the left mouse button to place a temporary marker at the chosen location.

The second way is by opening the map with the "TAB" key and holding "CTRL" while clicking the left mouse button; players can place a marker on the mini-map, indicating a particular location to their team. Additionally, this method provides more flexibility than in-game pinging since players can mark locations without being physically present.

Finally, the third way is to place a marker on the world map. To do this, players must press "M" to open the map and then hold down "Shift" while clicking the right mouse button. This method is especially beneficial for players who have access to sailing and want to explore the various islands or find lucrative farming spots for earning gold or silver.

How To Change Controls in Lost Ark

So there you have it. That's everything you need to know about changing controls in Lost Ark.
