I click on pots, but all essential skills are (somewhat) conveniently keybound around WASD. The mouse is for turning.

Unless I'm trying to execute a complex circle-strafe around a boss to change it's facing (Q+W+D). Can never seem to contort my hand around to Ctrl+3 for Seal of Wisdom at the same time. Ctrl+S turns game sounds off, very annoying to do that on accident.

` hammer of wrath
1 hammer of justice
2 judge
3 holy shield / shift-3 holy shield rank 1
4 consecrate
5 taunt
6 cleanse
g sov
r sor

shift 2 takes me to another set of bars with healing spells, which is something like
2 flash of light
3 holy light r5
4 holy light max rank

everything else is clicked, somewhere.

On all my chars i keyboarder, i use the shift+number 1-6 to change my action bars and then numbers on the spells/macros, starting with most frequent skills at 1-6 numbers and other fast buttons (wasd is movement so Q, E and R are all bound to macros), also some fairly important skills are in bars 2-4 since pressing shift+4 and immediately press 1-4 numbers again is actually easier to do than simply pressing 9 or 0 if i use only 1 bar.

I do use some rarer consumables sometimes with clicking (mana pots and such, health stones/pots are keybound).

I use a mix. I use keybindings for all my primary abilities, especially those that I have to use at a moment's notice. These are bound to 1-9, F1-F5, and Q/E/F/G. However, I use mouse-clicks for everything else, and all my downranking macros require right-clicking them. I can use said macros with modifiers if I wanted to, but I always found that to be a little clunky and can do a right-click more reliably, at least in my experience.

Keybindings for pretty much all combat skills, clicking for stuff like blessings.

Q W E R T Y

and Shift + most of the above keys

I use EDSF to move and turn. All others were linked to abilities or items.

I don't believe in macro's or keybindings, I prefer to play the game 'naturally'.

Barathorn


Do you use add-ons? Cause technically, those arn't all-natural :mrgreen:


I use a healthy mixture of clicking and keybindings...I have most of everything that I need keybound, but since I've only gotten into macros and keybinding in the last couple of months I still click when I don't really have to...

Also, keyboard binder here

Prot setup:
1- Avenger's Shield
2- Taunt macro
3- Judgement
4- SoR
5- HoJ, I'll sometimes swap with Exocism for demon bosses
6- Consecrate
7- Avenging Wrath
8- Holy Light
9- FoL
0- SoW
F- Holy Shield (very easy access)
G- Divine Shield, swap with Healthstone for boss fights

Ret setup
1- Hammer of Wrath
2- BoF (for PVP)
3- Judgement/SoC macro
4- SoC (can probably replace now that I've set macro 3 up)
5- HoJ
6- Cleanse (for PVP)
7- Repentance
8- Holy Light
9- Turn Evil (fearing lock pets :P )
F- Crusader Strike (easy to spam)
G- Bubble

3, 4, and 5, keys are my most used abilities, with 1/2/6/7 coming next, with F for my spam key (Holy Shield/Crusader Strike), G is my 'Oh sh**!' key.

That's different, I can see that being easier situationaly. I'm referring to all keyboard turning...all the time. No mouse turning :shock:
