No, it doesn't. I use my movement keys all the time in battle, while my character is casting or fighting, and it doesn't stop my PC's combat at all.

That is the point of why I started this thread. Just a nudge sideways does NOT work reliably. Clicking near your character doesn't work reliably. Clicking further away from your character may not be an option, still doesn't work reliably, and drags your character 10, 20 ft across the screen.

Click on the combat icon and stop fighting. That's it. Then you don't have to apologize as the DM has to reset all the NPCs, or apologize and pay for someone's resurrection.

The key word in "a nudge sideways does NOT work reliably" is reliably. It works on occasion, inconsistently, and without any discernible patterns. If you want it to stop 100% of the time, the action button at the top will work, every time, if you click it quick enough.

Just so it's clear the Team has chosen to make a rule covering this, though we strongly feel it should fall under Rule 0.

To really stop fighting, look at the upper left-hand corner of your game screen. You will see the "attack" symbol, a dagger inside a square. Click on that symbol and your character will stop fighting.

That is very helpful. I did not know that. Other methods I have used, as mentioned, are unreliable at best.

Thank you! :jump:
