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.
As a Shaman, always refreshing Searing Totem.
I dont know how many times ive just popped Fire Elemental, got some downtime 30 seconds in...SEARING TOTEM AHOY. Then I face palm.
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...
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 ;_;
Every time I use auto-run on a flying mount I get stuck in a tree.

Man, they hated melee back then.
A witty saying proves nothing.
not quite Batman
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.running left and right when doing damage, or running around or through mobs turning quickly.
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?
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.
