    Nah. Game isn't very demanding w/r/t hotkeys. Putting aside fanboy garbage, not worth it for GW2 alone. However, if you play other MMOs and PC games then totally worth it.

    It definitely is, this game caters very well to that form of input.

    I've used the Nostromo for the last stress test, and used it on WoW to get a feel for it, and frankly, I love it.

    I've said this in many different threads before, but I'd reccomend one if you can afford it. It's massively customisable, you can make macros, it's ergonomic, and (for me, at least) it gets my hand off my red-hot laptop. Lemme grab some of my screenies again.



    As you can see it's about 8 inches long That's what SHE said and fits well into my oversized hand. I use it at it's largest - the palmrest has two different positions.



    The buttons are all in pretty convenient places - I took the nub part off of my d-pad as I get more grip without it. If you prefer to keep it, there are things you can do to get more friction.



    And, lastly, there are all the different keybinds. Now, (if I can find the video) you have 8 different keymaps, each button customisable to a different action or macro. This means that, overall, you have access to essentially 184 different buttons/macros.



    I'd reccomend one.

    I'd say how much you play would be the deciding factor, not how many games you play.

    For comfort? Possibly. Wouldn't be razer/speedpad specific though. Just a quality desk setup can solve the comfort issue. I feel extras of a Razer/speedpad are far more weighted to a diversity of games than simply ergonomics.

    Agile Emily, what the hell is that on your laptop, below the keyboard? o.o

    While we're on the topic, I've been wondering - what do people use that thumb stick for? Movement?
    I do not use the d pad for movement, It is just another 4 keybinds to me. Example being right = target nearest enemy left would be prowl/stealth/camo down for my PvP trinket and up is usually used for a survival skill such as deterrence/barkskin/shieldwall ect. I just find it much easier to put my strafe keys on the main pad on buttons 2 and 4 (as i was used to w and r on keyboard pre N52TE).
    The great Friedrich Nietzsche once said, Shit happens deal with it.

    That's where my wrist has worn through the metal after four years of use. Another reason that the Nostromo is far more comfortable for me =p

    I got a G13 when they were on sale about a year ago and would definitely not hesitate to buy a gamepad again in the future should my old one stop working. I do find the G13 a little large though. I would personally got for the Razer if you have found one cheaper than the Logitech, for size and comfort more than anything.

    Er, I honestly dont know =p This was my first ever laptop. But the wear and tear only started after maybe two years. And I used it a LOT.

    It depends on how much you use it, but after a hard 1-2 years it happens to most (that are painted to look metallic)

    I have been using the n52te for a few years now and am loving it to death. Literally, I should buy a new one soon because it is getting pretty worn out...

    I baught the Razar Naga and Nostramo at the same time. At first i used the naga and the nostromo on and off. (its jsut weird getting used to it) So long as you can devote yourself to learning how to do it and take the time to set it up in a way thats comfortable to you during game play. It will be worth it. Currently I'm not playing any games on my computer (waiting for mists) but either way I cant live without my Naga. I plan to impliment the Nostromo once mists comes out and I have new skills that need key binding.

    No. It's worth playing with whatever you find a comfortable setup.
