Honest question incoming. [shame] I am a clicker and a sometimes keyboard turner.
In an effort to break up all the raiding posts I thought I would see input from the collective.
A long time ago – somewhere in the middle of my WoW history I was not a clicker. i spent hours on a test dummy running side to side, back and forth and casting spells to be at the top of my DPS. (I was never good enough imho and part of why I stopped playing my mage for tanking; I was better at that).
Now, I just can’t seem to get back into not clicking. I start off with good intentions and use my buttons and mice buttons then at some point I get flustered with boss mechanics and fall back to the clicking.
It was a point of discussion recently with the usual things like have spell types set to the same across all specs and characters, have important CD’s on mice etc.
My interest is more towards how you manage to move your toon out of things at the same time as maintaining a rotation. From initial discussions I have small fingers because some of my friends are saying they can reach the number keys whilst resting on awsd…I have to physically lift my hand to reach them. Did my hands shrink? Did keyboards just get bigger? Are my fingers like little sausages and not as a joke (as my husband calls them!!?)?
Everyone of my friends had a different way of moving their character and I am actually impressed with the variants. I use my mouse to move the camera and I use WQE to move forward and strafe. I barely use SDA unless I am turning to look at something specific – which I think I use at the same time as my mouse?
My biggest struggle after a few weeks of buttons and not clicking is managing to target mobs at the same time as DPS and move. OMG this has kicked up the difficulty level – especially with the new raid.
So…how do you guys move your character around and target mobs? Whilst not being clicker?
