I mostly use the mouse and modifiers.
Otherwise it would be "2" wich I can reach with 3 fingers (whichever one is free at the moment).

The number buttons are less convenient to reach, so they're mostly utility for me.

My spammy button really depends on the ability. For abilities with cast times, they're often some key combination, because you won't cast them while moving. Example: on my warlock, Shadowbolt is Shift+S, Haunt is Shift+Mouse5 and UA is Shift+Mouse4, because you can't use any of them while moving. On the other hand, Corruption is Mouse5 and CoA is Mouse4, since those are instant-cast.

Interestingly I have a completely different and marginally illogical setup on my moonkin (S+M4 for Starfire, M4 for Wrath, M5 for Moonfire, S+M5 for IS). If I were trying to be consistent, I'd set those up slightly differently (probably giving up the mouse buttons in favor of keys, like Shift+W for Wrath and Shift+S for Starfire, leaving M4 and M5 for IS and Moonfire respectively.

Since I don't use any spammable abilities on Theck, the setup is purely for convenience in keeping my rotation. M4 is ShoR, M5 is HotR, S+M4 is Holy Shield, Consecrate is [ (bound through Mouse7). Interestingly, Judgment is 2, as a hold-over from Classic. S+M5 is a Judge-focus macro though.

If I had an instant-cast spammable spell, like Devastate on my warrior, it would go on M4 or M5. Shield Slam is M4, Revenge is S+M5, queuing HS is S+M4, Tclap is [, and so on.

Hehe, I could never give up shift-W. How else would I auto-run?

The main reason I don't bind offensive stuff to mouse-buttons is because I solely rely on clique for healing. I'd run out of buttons in a second if I tried to support more than one role with the mouse.
I used to play a paladin.

I am gobsmacked. This is such an incredibly obvious and clean solution I can't believe I've not seen it some time in the past 6 years.

I'm a clicker, so guess which is my spammy button. That's right, left-click! On average, I destroy 2 mice per year :P

5 is my button for Purge on my shaman alt. Since I mostly use her to pvp I do a lot of purging. Oh it is a sick pleasure but I love to purge paladins most and then shamans. The 1-7 are used for the rotation and wind shear plus a chain lightning for #7. PvP as enhancement is really fun, I recommend it to anyone with a shaman. Then again I get crushed by shadow priests and good elemental shaman so it has its downsides.

I was going to go for 2... as it's SoR(prot)/Judgement(ret) but that's just down to me never really fiddling with ability placement on my pally. I went with 4 as it's Judgement for both specs on my pally and oblit/DS on my DK and Penance on my priest.

If I could get away with it I'd totally be a two fingered typer.

Purging ghostwolf = funny as hell as they repeatedly pop GW again and again.

That's pretty elegant. I use ESDF for movement, and I unbound shift+E because I kept accidentally hitting it while trying to move forward. Binding it to autorun would make a lot of sense.

Since prot pala doesn't really lend itself to 1 spammy button, pretty much any button adjacent to WASD is fair game for my abilities. Shift modifiers for some.

For any class where there is a repeatable spam button, 3 is my go-to button. F is second in spam factor, usually for "finisher" type moves or sub 20% moves. E is my default contextual spam button, Kicks, concussive shots, etc.

On my tank toons, most of my big slams or hits are on 5, 4, or 3. On my casters, depending on how many DoTs they have, it can start on 6, but usually it's 5, 4, and/or 3. Because I play with a zMerc keyboard, I can easily hit my 1 through 11 keys(1 through -). I think the Rogue's SS is 3, and S&D is 4 while Eviscerate is 2. I haven't played him since I finished picking heavy junkboxes.

I tend to be more comfortable using 4 or 3, or even 5, using my index or middle fingers.

I had to unbind shift+W as well, but I like to start autorun while I'm already moving forward, so this would cause me to have to stop dead before enabling autorun.

I use number keys anyway, so R and mouse5 are autorun.

3 and 5 are the main ability buttons on all of my characters, that's middle and index finger. 4 is a stun/interrupt, 2 is a spec-dependent instant.

Should've made this poll 'Which finger hits your nukie spammy button?' by the looks of it.

PsiVen: Run -> Jump -> Autorun. :)
