    Question Random question... what do you do with the 1 key slot?

    I just saw a picture of some random poster's UI, and he had the default attack button in the first slot. Which always confuses me. Very early into my WoW career (I say career because I spent way too much time playing it, and wish I got paid for it) I started taking out that button and putting in, for the most part, my most used skills.
    Death Knight: Death Grip. I had it in slot 1 when I was leveling and it just stuck. Yes, I've accidentally hit it while raiding, and that's why I move it to the slot right above it whenever in raids, but keep it in for dungeons in case I have to step up and oh shi- tank.
    Druid: Feral Form, then Mangle when in Feral Form.
    Rogue: Mutilate. Pretty self-explanatory.
    Mage: Arcane Blast. See above.
    Shaman: Lightning Bolt. ^
    Hunter: Steady Shot. ^^
    Paladin: Hammer of the Righteous. ^^^
    Priest: Penance. ^^^^
    Warrior: Mortal Strike. ^^^^^
    Warlock: Incinerate. ^^^^^^
    Monk: Jab. <(^.^<) (sorry, had to do it)

    So... what do you guys do with it?

    I usually have something I use a lot but that's not an attack on it, since I have a hardish time reaching the one button (it's not a matter of having small fingers, my brain is just more used to reach 2)

    so on my lock I use curse of the elements, on my monk I use roll, et cetera.
    Warlorcs of Draenorc made me quit. You can't have my stuff.

    I configure my buttons in the order that I should use them in my rotation (sometimes including doubles, but usually not). Since I'm a clicker, it works fine
    Arguing with Trump is like playing chess with a pigeon. No matter what you do or say, he will just knock over the pieces, take a shit on the board and strut around like he won the whole damn thing.

    If I'm tanking or dps, then 1 is always an essential damage ability, but my main is a resto shaman and 1 is Ancestral Swiftness.

    I see the trend seems to be similar to me. Most of the time, the skill I put in slot 1 tends to be my most used one, and also the beginning of a rotation. My rogue: Mutilate 1, Envenom 2. Mage: Arcane Charge 1, Arcane Blast 2. I like simple rotations~

    I tend to put on 1 abilities I don't spam, like Drain Soul as Affli or Meta as Demo

    The fist question i have is "what 1?".

    You can have different keybinds on the numeric pad "1" and the regular "1" (as i have)

    For the regular "1" in all chars:

    Damage cooldowns + trinkets macro

    Usually some sort of 30 sec CD skill that I may use actively such as HoJ.
    I use a Logitech G600 and I bind my main skills to that.

    since i always put my filler on 2, 1 is usually saved for something usually with a CD or not used a hell of a lot but needed on demand, like Elemental blast for my ele sham, chaos bolt for my lock, colossus smash for my war, ect. ect.

    Either my opening attack, or the main builder/spam-thingy. Jab on Monk, Cobra/Steady on hunter, SS/Mut/wutevvah on Rogue etc..
    If you add me on Steam, Skype or whatever program/client I share my info for, please write something to identify you in the "Dude/gal wants to join your club"-message. Just so I know that an actual human is on the other end :P

    On my hunter I actually have 3 as my auto shoot ability.
    And 1 is my hunters mark.
    And my 3 most used abilities (Explosive, cobra and arcane) are 9, 8 and 7.

    Interrupt/Silence on all my characters

    Mine is Vampiric Embrace. It is actually a throw back to BC when I first began playing my Shadow priest; at the time, Vampiric Embrace was a 30s debuff you had to place on your target, so it was always the first thing I casted. I just never moved it when it became a buff because I'm lazy.

    I usually use it for some sort of 'opening' ability, something to start combat with. Not that I always start every fight with this button (you'll see why below, a lot of the time it wouldn't make sense) but they share the theme of 'openers'.

    Monk: Roll
    Death Knight: Death Grip
    Hunter: Hunter's Mark/Pet attack macro
    Warrior: Charge
    Paladin: Judgement
    Druid: Faerie Fire

    Those are the ones I can remember. I think my Rogue has mutilate on button 1? Not sure tho.

    Currently, (as of Wrath actually) I've always had a self-heal attack or cooldown in that slot; Death Strike, Recuperate, Victory Rush... since I play Melee mainly. This leaves the quick heal close, but not where i can accidently hit it from "W". I do this because i re-bind "-" & "+" to be "Q" & "E" for my main attack and filler respectively. keeps em close for constantly dodging fire and stomps during boss fights, and then Ctrl+ Q/E on 9&0 for interrupts and executes. Back in Vanilla while raiding MC/Onyixa, I did have my auto-attack button still at the "1" key so I could stop attacking immediately when the raid leader called for it, to allow for off-tank to build threat is what i mainly remember. Happened so much i couldnt rely on vanish or fient alone.
