My World of Warcraft Binds

Yo, wanted to share these as there don't seem to be any yet.
I personally prefer not using modifiers in combat whenever possible.

Note that I heavily utilize additional mouse buttons - I put Potions, Healthstones and all my Heals on them.
Even if you have less mouse buttons you may achieve a similar result using modifiers.

Some other things about the binds:
- I originally intended the Crowd Control & Defensive rows to be swapped, but I sometimes miss clicked them trying to reach to the upper knuckle buttons. Not having a Defensive when you need it is a really bad time, so I put them on, for me, less susceptible buttons. May not be the case for you.
- The "Special DPS" button in this case implies Covenant Abilities, or anything in that direction.
- The center keys (Primary DPS) are the easiest for me to spam, followed by the second last row (Secondary DPS), so that's what influenced those for me. They were intended to be bound depending on how often the spell is used. Again, your results may vary.
- Raid & DPS cooldowns (Implying stuff with 2:00m+, or at the very least 1:30m cooldown) are usually pretty planned, so putting those on more accessible keys wasn't a priority for me.
- Interface Panels (Bags, Spellbook, ...) are all bound using the modifier and mostly the two central DPS rows.
- I don't tab target.
- The actual hotkeys used don't matter, as you can macro whatever you wish. If you formerly played on KB&M I highly suggest leaving your in-game hotkey setup as-is and only adjusting the macros of the keypad. This way if something ever were to happen you're able to switch back on the fly.

Feli,
What class and spec are you playing?
I just got my Cyborg and I'm starting to set it up.
I play a Ret Pally as my main, and I have a Hunter as my other raiding toon.

Also, I have a bunch of stuff on mouse buttons - Potions & Healthstones, all my Heals.
Am learning and getting used to the keypad myself, so I'd still consider it a WIP.

What is your jump key? Movement 1/2?

Sorry for the late reply everyone, haven't looked here in a while. :D
I play Healers. Flex depending on meta, otherwise primarily Priest. Generally I (can) play all specs of whatever class I play.

I would suggest so. If you have free mouse buttons I'd bind modifiers on those and if you need even more keys you can implement a profile switch in the Azeron Software for essentially 8+ hotkeys per modifier+button combination.

What is your jump key? Movement 1/2?
Movement 1 & 2 are exclusively for mobility spells for me. I have my Jump bound to a thumb button on my Logitech G604, next to the vast majority of my Heals & Externals using Clique & Grid2.


Also, to give an update: I swapped the left most Secondary Rotation button for an additional modifier, primarily used for pre-combat and battle & utility potions, as well as any "don't know where else to put" kind of things that I didn't want to have to click like Warlock Gate key.
I've attached the new one, as well as mouse references.

Just so you guys know WoW supports controller input if you want to use more precise movement instead of using WASD
Just put into chat "/console GamePadEnable 1" and set your analog stick to Xbox Joystick
I would also use "/console SoftTargetEnemy 0" unless you want it to change your target for you. You can use "/console SoftTargetEnemy 3" if you want to turn that back on.

So you can control your character speed with 360 movement?
