If I could bind everything to a 360 controller I would.
Well I do a combination of both now, To be honest I had a very difficult time getting used to keybinding. I'm not very coordinated with pressing keys while looking at the screen, I'm a noob in that aspect.
It took me the longest time to get to grips with keybinding but now that I have it makes things so much easier. I mean, I used to click like nobody's business and I was good at it, but having one eye on action bars and one on what was going on was tough and after raids I felt mentally drained.
I taught myself to keybind levelling another char of the same class and forced myself to keybind - now it's pretty natural and I can focus on what's going on around me 99%.
It was a steep and painful learning curve though. Having a Naga helped immensely.
After years of being a clicker and my boyfriend tormenting me about it I started to keybind. I always used the blizzard bar for abilities 1-6, can't reach 7+comfortably. Now I am using my naga and have my dots, a heals, and shadow form for my priest bound, inquisition and lay on hands for my pally. I am slowly starting to bind. It has really improved my dps I have to admit.
And seriously, why would someone post their armory or progression when someone (perhaps you) is just waiting to pounce on them for being "bad"?
On topic, like others I have keybinds for most of my stuff and a few mouse binds as well. There are some abilities that I still click, but a subset of those should really get keybinds.
Stating an opinion as fact does not make it fact. Opinions are not fact. So don't be stupid and make a fool of yourself by trying to pass off your opinion as fact.
I don't believe 50% of you being clickers though. There's only so many that might be good enough to click fast enough for it not to be an issue.
Otherwise you could most likely beat blood legion if you all began to use keyboard, which is a nice feat, no?
I'dd like to see you play a demon lock during movement. Dotting all targets up with corr/doom, you have to target every target at least twice, with the mouse, and then move the mouse to the spell, and back to a new target.
I guess it's not impossible, but doing that you would probably realise it would be easier to at least bind doom and corruption.
The rest of us with slow reactions at more than 100 ms will benefit more from using a keyboard, than a mouse.
I have all my abilities key bound + a mount.
Well i still use bind/click combo and if you ask me i hate it especially in heavy movement clicking will doom you but just cant broke mine fingers like mine sister do it to bind almost everything
Seems the only solution is to buy Razer naga
So tell me, WHY would you even consider using clicks instead of keybinds? I can't understand the logic in why people are clicking instead of keybinding.
You should never ever ever ever click in WoW, the time it takes for your brain to react on where you mouse cursor is to move the cursor to the button and click it will always take twice as long it takes to move your finger to the right button while your brain have muscle memory on which button to click.
And don't come with nonsense like "I'm a very fast clicker"... Keybinds will be twice as fast even if you are the fastest clicker in the world.
The only way in which keybinds actually make a difference is how it affects your ability to move, a keybinding keyboard turner will have more problems than a clicking mouse turner. Keybinding does tend to make it easier to mouse turn, but you can have you abilities hidden by a single keybind and if you can't hide your abilities do a 180 mouse turn and unhide you abilities all in under 0.5 seconds then your problem is that you can't mouse turn properly.
Personally I am a healer so the discussion is more complicated. I have mouse over macros keybound to the numerical pad, target using the mouse and run forwards with my thumb on the arrow keys. Turning is either done via the mouse or arrow keys depending on if I know which direction I will need to run in advance (ie on defile I could turn using the keyboard while casting heals to face the direction I needed incase defile landed on me, so using the mouse was not needed) on gunship in dragon soul I would mouse turn when the big purple swirly thing turned up as I couldn't know in advance the direction.

You're not playing at your full capacity if you click. If you keybind you can focus on the action a lot more, no matter how good you are at clicking you'll have a slower reaction than keybinders since you have to pull the mouse to the ability and click it. If you PvE it doesn't really matter though since it's very static.
Obvious troll is obvious. But seriously, it just boggles my mind that there are still mouthbreathers out there clicking their spells. It just screams "I have no desire to improve and am happy with mediocrity." I sometimes wonder what these people are like IRL.pve scrubs don't need to bind keys
