Suggestion - hotkeys for Altar boons

It would be nice if you could just press a hotkey for using altar boons, anyone who's had to use sanctify or magic dozens of times in the one dungeon knows what I'm talking about. Obviously it would be disabled in subdungeons.

I'd personally suggest using F1-F5 as they're far enough away that you won't press them accidentally and are unlikely to overlap with inventory hotkeys.

Okay, but why would it be disabled in sub-dungeons?

Well the final bosses often don't let you use altar boons when you fight them in subdungeons, or the subdungeon locks behind you. Perhaps you could just disable it for those particular subdungeons.

Holy crap I was JUST about to post this very subject after a much sanctified run (that's the -75% thing, right?).
I would be fine if it were even just the numbers but you had to click onto the temple, just to save me moving the mouse as much.
Function keys would be better again though.
Another option could be alt+number, you hold alt and then the list of choices pops up somewhere with the numbers alongside them.


The only thing is this would make the insta-worship preparation much improved, since you don't even know where the temple is let alone have it uncovered. You could get around this by making it only work if the temple is shown, OR just let this be a (much needed) upgrade for insta-worship and bump the prep cost.

Good point, that's what I was thinking. Most sub-dungeons you can go in and out of without using up a turn or anything.

That's a good point, insta worship might actually be useful now.

Using the function keys in a browser game is a poor idea. Some browsers don't pay attention to on focus events, and neglect disabling them.

Altar hotkeys might be a good idea though, as long as the control scheme doesn't get too cluttered.

You know Mystera Annur may be broken when ...

Anyway, what about a hotkey that moves you to your deity's altar if possible and opens the worship menu?

Hotkeys for boons would make sense. Probably just use the number keys...

Not sure about moving the player to the altar immediately though.

You realize it's only a browser game for now, right?
