Out of curiosity: What's your nukie spammy button?

Postby amh » Fri Mar 05, 2010 6:36 pm

Obviously paladins neither nuke nor spam much, but I'm more thinking about your alts. Which keyboard-button does your main filler fit into? For example,

My lock's SB rests peacefully on "2".
My druid's Mangle is still stuck on "2", even after getting Shred ("1")
My DK's HS - "2" (with the spec-dependant UF-attack on "3")
My priest's MF is on "F" for some reason, been there for a couple of years :p
My warrior's HS - "2"
My shaman's LB - "2"
I used to play a paladin.

You don't have options for the keypad. Mine are KP5, KP9, and Down Arrow.

Imagine that they're numbered up from left to right -> 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6!

1 and 2, although I also use Q and E. Depends on which character I'm playing tbh.

If I have a spammy nuke, it goes on 2. Habit from the position of my mage's Frostbolt, I think. For rotation/FCFS based stuff, 2 tends to be one of the less frequently used parts of the rotation, for some reason.

I usually use 3 or 4 -- something easily reached by my index finger. Easier on the hands than using ring or pinky fingers.

Ergonomics!

I chose 2 or 3, because I put some of my "main" abilities on there. 1 is normally the button I use to start everything off- AS on my Paladin, DG on my DK, etc. I don't really have a spam button, because 1. Tankadins have the 969 rotation 2. Unholy have a set rotation 3. I click VuhDo on my drood.

R isn't a choice, maybe that'd be 3? I don't like the numbers for anything but rarities (professions, DP, etc.), and use Q, E, R, F, C, V, X, Z for most keybinds.

My Ele Shaman has LB on mousewheel up, CL on mousewheel down.

My warrior has HS on mousewheel up, Cleave on mousewheel down.

Camera zoom functions are remapped to shift+mousewheel.

from 1->5: dp - flay - vt - mb - swp
Not really sure why DP is 1, it just kind of happened. On most other chars I have the most used spells go from 1 onward

On my shaman I have my spam button stormstrike on "R".

edit: but it's on a 8 second cooldown so... guess it's not really a spam class

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.
