Checking back in to say thank you all very much for you helpful suggestions.
To those questioning the reality of my post because of my post-count and asking logs, please reflect on the fact that I prefer to keep myself anonymous because I feel ashamed. Otherwise I would have asked my guildmates first before coming here! To some doubting the rankings I posted, keep in mind that I never said anything about arena..Indeed, I have never even tried to get an arena team (apart from CP capping) because it is blatantly obvious that I would never be able to succeed above a specific rating with keyboard turning.
On topic now, do you guys have an good Left-Handed gaming mouse to suggest?
And, should I bind A and D to strafe left/right or turn left/right (I swear, I really am so inexperienced with mouseturning).
I think I found out about mouse turning a week into the game right after Vanilla launch. I keyboard turned for a week in my 8 years of WoW. Thank god.
I don't understand how you can play this game and constantly keyboard turn, especially in competitive/endgame content.
Actually keyboard turning in pve is not that big of a deal. If you are for some reason really stuck with that habit, you will eventually know how to manage your character by clicking and stuff. And because of general cooldowns, it is theoretically possible to be as succesful as anyone with just clicking in pve because you will have enough time to move your mouse to another skill during GCD. PVP pretty much requires you to use mouse to turn around because it is just alot more complex.
i dont see how can u get server first doing keyturns.. either you was being carried or i dont know... imagine on ragnaros heroic...moving from fire and shit...or omfg theres to many situations where you are going to fail for keyturner... this is like... trolling must say... i can understand a clicker but not a keyturner...

That was his first post on MMO, and he does not even link his armory. Just saying, his credibility is not really top notch.

I was top dps in cata and top heals in mop in my server first guild. Die to the least amount of mechanics than anyone in my raid as well as call raid cds. I 100% keyboard turn. There is nothing mouseturning gives me that keyboard turning doesn't. If you know how to strafe and set up your direction there is no point in mouseturning. The only time I mouseturn is when I am feared to go back the direction I want right away. People think they are superior because they mouseturn, its just a different playstyle.
Clicking your spells, however, deters your raid awareness as you use eye-traffic to find those buttons on a consistent basis.
If you are having issues surviving because of keyboard turning, then you should switch though. Although its usually just because you are bad.
I only use few keybindings but I kinda keyboard turn.
I'm perfectly fine and I whoop on the DPS meters, so yeah.
Guys, we're not turning this into a "I'm better than you are because I do (fill in the blank)" debate. Stay on topic, and everyone who is posting just to try to insinuate that the OP is trolling needs to stop. That's not posting constructively, it's spam, and it's not allowed here.
Well, if you are willing to spend a lot of time preparing encounters to maximize your performance, you should optimize the most basic part, which shouldn't pose more than 3 to 6 hours of playing awkward to adapt, regardless of what you think.. So pick c). Then you can fulfill your dream of being a top player.
i dont see it would be possible to keyboard turn on attenuation hc
Have you never played an FPS game before? You look around with your mouse, not your keyboard.
I don't always keyboard turn, but I am mostly a clicker (with some keybinds for ultility spells like interupt), currently 13/16 HC, aiming to fully clear this tier before 5.2 come out.
You said you used to raid HC all the time, then it should be no issue to you at all, it is not like fight like Warmaster HC (pre nerf) give you much breathing room if you don;t react fast, Sindragosa HC with the pulls and shit, Putricide HC with the goo, movements and reaction had always been there, if you did fine before no reason you can't now.

unbind your arrow keys. rebind A and D to strafe left and right. tape your right hand to your mouse.
i mean it.
go get some packing tape and tape your hand to it, get a cheap mouse that you don't care if you get sticky stuff all over it if you have to.
then go do random bgs/random dungeons/lfr/2s until you are blue in the face and you get used to playing with your hand on your mouse.
the key to muscle mouse turning is muscle memory, you just have to forcibly retrain it.
