  • Pointer: This option allows you to enable or disable the little blue arrow that would normally appear whenever you click the ground to indicate your destination.
  • Avatar Controls: You can either set this to Default or Absolute Direction. Enabling absolute direction will make it so whenever you use the WASD or the arrow keys to move, rather than gradually moving in one direction your avatar will snap to whichever direction you are heading.
