    I have a mouse that has 3 joysticks -- One on side for thumb, one on top for index/middle finger, and one on side for pinky.

    Each direction can be bound to a key via 3rd party program. I bind 3 on thumb, 3 on top and 2 on pinky - Each one of them has a Shift modifier for Arena2 then Ctrl for Arena3.

    I use Q, E, R, F, C, X, 1-5 along with a Shift modifier.

    It use to be worse when you had to re-drop individual totems as an Enhance shaman.

    I don't need to bind fortitude. I don't need to bind inner fire. I don't need to bind a few other utilities either, like mage tables or poisons.
    But I thought making tables was the Mage's main role in WoW?...

    About the click issue: http://www.darklegacycomics.com/107.jpg

    Now, I have a unique keyboard setup. My movement keys are over at the numberpad, so I can move my right hand easily between my movement keys and the mouse for stuff in the game that has to be clicked. 4/6 to turn left/right, 7/9 to strafe, 2/8 to move forward/back, 5 for autorun, 1 for 'interact with target', 3 to put a skull-mark on, 0 to go down, / to go up like spacebar, +/- for tilting up and down for flying, the . on the numpad for vent push-to-talk, * to reverse camera angle.

    My main skill hotkeys are QWER ASDF ZXCV with stancebar on the numbers, so I can easily hit them all. My secondary skillbar uses the same letters with shift-versions, my tertiary uses control-versions of the same letters. Spacebar for jump. My character panes and stuff are on the right side of the letters, like O, P, etc.

    Complicated to set up, but sooooo worth it.

    I do both, but I was a clicker for a couple of years when I started WoW (only keys used where 1-5 and movement).
    There's still things I click, long CD's for example. Or rarely used spells like ritual of summoning etc.

    Keybinding does not automatically make you a good player.
    No, but clicking automatically makes you a bad one.

    Keybinding is better.

    Also, Razer Naga is bad. Any bind on your mouse will make your movement sloppy, and defeat most of the point of keybinding in the first place. I suppose you could put unimportant, non-combat binds on the Naga, but at that rate you might as well just put them on "bad" binds like Shift-5.

    i cant disagree more...i dont see why it effects movement in any way at all.

    to the OP, clicking isnt "another" way to play, it is an inferior way to play. i would go to say high level pvp is impossible with clicking.

    Combo! I make it where certain things can't be fat fingered such as Time Warp and have my other "rotation" spells on keybinds.

    I have been a key binder since pre bc, reaction times are faster, no looking for buttons under duress, faster on task and task switching, I will click during heavy movement periods. My key binds are set to match where my talents are on the toolbar, so clicking is simpler however there is a difference when i have to click v button push, all my utility when playing a utility class is also key bound but to my mouse, When i travel and am not on my normal system there is a perceptible difference in output.

    I keybind everything including mounts and some vanity items. Having an ability bound to a key allows you to respond faster than clicking the button. I like my mouse free to only target enemies, i usually dont right click on quest givers instead i left click them and hit my keybinding to interact with them (this comes in handy in a place like Halfhill that is heavily crowded and helps you not right click an enemy player leading you to be attacked by guards). So basically i only use my mouse pointer for targeting npcs and players and looting items although some of my actionbars have unbound things that i click they are not in-combat spells they are stuff like my mage portals and conjure food.

    No it can't.

    The only clicks I have are mounts, time warp and feasts.

    Well, I can turn/move in any direction and cast any one of my spells or cd's in a heartbeat thanks to keybinds so that makes me pretty happy.
