    Never really mattered, since my left hand is on the keyboard anyways.
    Your future tense and past tense, it confuses me. Did you ever find a way? I believe it's impossible using the num pad, but I seem to remember doing it fine with the top number keys. Don't really need modifiers on the mouse anyway, never really took advantage of it.

    He may just no longer play WoW, hence the past tense on the first part.

    The second part makes more sense than "though I'm sure there was a way." or "will be a way." to me. :\

    The past tense is that I stopped trying because I just use Shift/Alt/Ctrl on my keyboard anyways. I was mostly experimenting with it once to see if it could be done.

    I just wish I could get a Nostromo. That would make re-binding F1-F4, weapon swap, and dodge... much easier.

    Really looking forward to seeing this thing go live.

    Sad that Monk is not in the game anymore. I had multiple monks leveled in GW1.

    Interesting that paladin... er Guardian... is in there instead.

    Going to be a tough call for me between Warrior and Guardian, for a Charr alt-male, er female, or whatever the thing they claim is female is...

    Just because it doesn't have human-boobs, doesn't it mean it ain't female.... The current Charr female actually does seem more realistic, since their anatomy would've evolved more similar to cats.

    gw2 and my naga are currently set up like this for me
    1-5 normal keys, edsf movement
    naga : 1-3 = skills 7-9
    naga : 4-7 = atunements (takes over the Function keys basicly)
    naga : 8 = weaponswap
    naga : 10+11 = heal +elite

    So depending on how it feels after having played the game seriously I've got 4buttons to bind on my naga atm

    at whoever wanted to macro alt+1 in the naga. Why not just macro it into the game with modifiers, it's what I did and that worked fine.
    (i think there's also an addon specificly for ppl with a naga but i've never used it)

    Nope. It's just a way to sell it to stupid people who think more must mean better.

    To be fair, the mouse is still good on it's own even without that. :P

    Hey look, 5700dpi, same price as the Naga, AND made JUST for CoD! Even better it "used to be" $20 more! Marketing is fun. <3

    You can bind modifiers as single keys by the way, so Z could be shift instead for example.

    But anyways, I approve. Kind of similar to my binds, just you have a Razer naga is it's a lot easier.

    I used Shift, S, and X for abilities in addition to what you have.

    I bind the exact same way in WoW (Or any MMO for that matter that supports hotkeys). All Attack spells on the naga, all utility on the keyboard. Trinket Middle Mouse button, short CD buffs or stances on the 2 extra mouse buttons. lol

    Don't know about you, but when I enter a tank in BF3 and I am in the gunner seat, having higher DPI at the flip of a switch is really great since the game automatically lowers the speed at which you turn substantially. If I recall, just about every game that I have played (including the trebuchet and other siege engines in GW2) that has had this mechanic has benefited greatly from increased DPI mice.

    In Tribes it's like that with the vehicles, but I realized higher DPI didn't make them turn faster, they just turned really slow in general. The higher DPI just affected the aiming, but not movement.

    I pretty much just put all abilities on the mouse and only use keyboard for movement and modifier keys.

    That sounds like a way to cheat really.

    It's a clever use of game mechanics!
