Hotkeys, directional inputs? Controller or Keyboard?

  1. This is more of a general question, but I'm asking it here as I'm playing a MGrappler. I just started playing through Steam and was wondering what would be the best for long term playing. Are memorizing the directional inputs for moves better, IE Forward-Z for Knee Kick, Up-Forward-Z, Forward-Forward-Z, or is it safe to use the shortcuts? I would think the shortcuts would be easier, but you can remap the shortcut inputs.

    And is this easier for controller or keyboard?

    There's no reason not to use hotkeys if they're available to you. You can even remap them.
    For most classes, map your buff(s) to your space bar for convenience.
    I strongly recommend mapping Wild Cannon Spike to Z because you can only use it in the air anyways and it makes it easier to cancel Tornado Kick into it. I would also suggest mapping Quaking Tiger to your space bar for a similar reason; albeit with different skills. Manually inputting Flash Move to something simple(like Forward Forward Space) is also a good idea since I feel it's a waste of a hotkey for a skill solely used for mobility.

    You can manually input whatever skills you want to but I suggest doing the above because it's simple enough that you don't have to memorize anything and saves you three hotkeys.

    This is all entirely subjective but I really do feel that setup just makes things easier without being a hindrance to anything.

    I've personally never played DFO/DNF with a controller so I can't really speak for that.
