    I have my major CDs bound to 'Q', right next to 'W' for moving forward. About once a week, I end up blowing all my CDs when all I really wanted to do was move.

    Bonus points if I press it while on a flying mount.

    I tend to walk away while I'm logged in on lowbie alts, on a PvP server, in places like Hellfire Peninsula, which I did at least three times today. If you leave yourself /afk sitting on the road in Hellfire Peninsula, you're gonna have a bad time. Usually its other players ganking me, but the ole Fel Reaver ganked me once as well.

    Accidentally popping Avenging Wrath while mounted mid-air. Glyph of the Falling Avenger is a good friend of mine.

    Since I started playing, I've brought a fishing pole to countless dungeons. More recently, its the Safari Hat that accidentally joins me on the occasional scenario or BG.

    Overzealously refreshing Inquisition when I don't need to.

    Spiritwalkers grace was set to the same button as my push to talk key for vent..

    I only just recently changed it to the Caps Lock key. Now I'm always yelling...

    Using Stampede during Bestial Wrath. I feel pretty retarded when it happens.

    I click horn of winter constantly... At this point in the game it's almost like OCD.

    Doesn't work so well when flying.

    Flying up to max distance, dismounting and bubbling at the last second. I dunno why I keep doing that when I'm bored, but it usually ends up with a death after a couple of times, and I always do it ;_;

    Thanks for reminding me, I used to do that too. And I'd always forget to wait 5 mins for the cd to reset when I go up for Round 2.

    Every time I use auto-run on a flying mount I get stuck in a tree.

    Back in Cataclysm I used to shadowstep right into the poison cloud behind Venoxis right after the pull all the time. Eventually I had to make a macro asking the tank to pull him further out into the center so when I steamed in I didn't die instantly.

    Man, they hated melee back then.

    Still assume Heroic Leap when falling from great heights is foolproof and will never fail due to pathing or high latency.

    Sometimes, i log in, run to somwhere and think "I need to refresh HoW" just to discover i already did. Kinda creeping myself out there.

    running left and right when doing damage, or running around or through mobs turning quickly.
    I don't really do this anymore, and tend not to do this in PVE, but even as a healer (resto druid) I still find myself doing it. It is annoying as shit to look at (go see people do it in the brawlers guild) and can probably cause things like loss of melee swings / bad positioning. please stand still and stop running around like a kid on skittles.

    ps. dumbest thing I do is probably jump around in a capital city for an hour when I have nothing to do. I should just log off, but when I was alliance jumping around the lines in Ironforge, and to a lesser extent now in Orgrimmar, is pretty much 10% of my time in wow

    Hard to say, can't think off anything concrete. Would more be small rotation/abblity mistakes.

    I never click anything aswell now days, so can't even say that I do that.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

Additionally, holding down any one of those buttons, then toggling num lock off will result in that button acting like it's held down.

    At least every other play session, I'll depress some combination of keys while I'm flying, which makes me dismount and plummet to my death, without fail. Quite funny, if I do say so myself.

    Anyhow, list some goofy things you still accidentally do, despite knowing better.
    Wait, you have your mouse on the left side of the keyboard and use your right hand on the numpad?

    Being a lefty myself I use those two the exact same way everyone else does o.O

    I allow trash to hit me instead of kite them 'like a normal person'. Taking it in the face make it easier to AOE things that aren't moving around, after all.

    Gemming/reforging for another spec just to remember you hate the playstyle, but think you just might like it now. Like on my Enhancement shaman, i keep wanting to try out the uber elemental and haste build, but i don't like it's feel. Something about lots of mastery and my melee flinging even more lightning damage at enemies.

    this >.< one time I had to have my husband and a I come out to Vashjir because a guildie did this too and couldnt reach the the spirit healer for some reason, even when right on top of it =P It was a pretty annoying bug and I think we died 1-2 times each rezzing him up. Last time I did it was just the damned 10 min wait on spirit rez debuff.
