Hotkey Constellations

Post by Scrat »

With very many buildings and units in PW, there are only 10 hotkeys. Try to make the best of them :D




My hotkeys for Norsemen [NM]:



1 Complete Army
2 Ranged combat fighters, later siege units
3 Complete army without ranged combat fighters / siege units
4 Weapons Smith (one or two, maximum three)
5 Town Center
6 All barracks I have
7 All animal farms I have
8 Two forester's lodges
9 One stone quarry
0 Two market places




Shortcuts 8-0 shall be safely in base, the markets in base but far away from each other.


1-3 clear what to do - fight! ^^
Try to kill enemy's towers from behind with siege units and protect your siege units with your other units.


4 Invent upgrades, lancers are not that useful

Mainly these upgrades:
- Improved archer weapons
- Improved archer range
- Improved weapon smith
- Blades
- Mammoth armor
- Weapon upgrade (workers)

Not mainly but might be quite useful:
- Improved defense and offense values (warriors)
- Rhino armor

Almost completely unnecessary:
- Kentro armor (but with a Pennant-Rhino and Stina T5 they have 100 meelee defense :D ^^)


5 Invent epoch upgrades, produce workers


6 Produce infantry (mainly archers) and invent upgrades, if you have any resources left and nothing to do :D or if you rush the enemy and do some tech meanwhile...


7 Produce mounted units and invent upgrades, mainly these:
- Large animal farm
- War drums
- Both mammoth upgrades
- Both triceratops upgrades
- Pennant

Not mainly but might be quite useful:
- Scout farsight
- Rhino shakeoff


8 Select number 8 and click at food panniers at first when you reached new epochs.


9 Stone upgrades are not that useful from earlygame till midgame, in lategame they´re kinda important, though.


0 Invent marketplace and storage upgrades, produce market waggons (if you don´t play 1on1).



Special thanks to Triceratops, who told me most of the hotkeys. :D ;)




Mainly good player should post their hotkey constellations (including their tribes) so that not that good ones can get better. :)

Hey, you are sharing MY hotkey system !! :(

It's ok, you are welcome.


The resource upgrades are very important. Dont forget them, they don't cost much.

^^ ;) before I only had 1-3 ^^ thanx for getting me a better player :) I didn´t even know that one can make hotkeys to buildings ^^ once I noticed but I didn´t care :D
and more than that, because of Johnny's turnament I played this that often that I cant do it any other way no more ^^


In lategame it would be a good idea to put all Food or Wood harvesting workers to hotkey 8 after you got all upgrades and all stone quarriers to 9. Its good for the fact that you often need to go out of your base to get stones (e.g. Cold-blooded).
