I can try that. God, I'm bad at this.

Highly recommend mouse button as a good interrupt hotkey.

Cept for keyboard turners, then that's highly detrimental.

I use R. It's just been a standard interrupt key across all my characters since forever.

Keyboard turners? Do you mouse-click as well?

I haven't used it.

Mostly because my whole time last night was, download patch while doing something else, train it, put it on bar, go play shaman for about an hour, go to bed.

Err no?

Edit: Oh, now I realize why my comment seems weird. To me, a keyboard turner uses wasd to move and uses the numpad to hit their spells, thereby not really relying on the mouse. (Invis does the same, so it's not like I'm a total fruitloop in thinking that's normal keyboard turning procedure.) But I guess the overall impression of keyboard turners is that they use the mouse to click, right?

mWheel up/down definitely don't receive the love they should because so many people think "oh, they're bound to camera functions, I can never unbind them because then I'll never be able to zoom in and out ever again, OH NOS!"

For me, mwheel down is DP, mwheel up is AD. Shift mwheel's are my camera zoom and ctrl mousewheels are my avoidances trinks. GanK is on a mouse button, interrupt and both my taunts are also on mouse buttons.

Beyond that, some clever use of clique allows me to assign all my hand spells to mouse keys as well. It also helps to have an 8 button mouse...

I've stuck it on G, since before now G was Sacred Shield (bye bye) then Inquisition (rarely used), and G has always been Counterspell on my Mage. Now I just need to redesign my Shaman and DK's bindings to get their interrupts on G too so I can get the muscle memory down right.

Haven't had an opportunity to actually use Rebuke yet; all I did yesterday was tank the Chemical Company bosses and sort out my toons' gear.
I don't play WoW any more.

I've been playing FPSs since the original DOOM was in Beta (yeah, that takes me back) and I don't know if I can shake my habits of WASD for maneuvering and numberpad or number row for spells. Heck, learning to mouse-turn was heart breaking.

Makes a little more sense.

My right hand is on the mouse at all times usually, left hand on WASD, but I mainly use the strafe keys and number keys for abilities with a healthy dose of alt; most of my key abilities are 1-5. I have big hands. Mouse for added precision while moving.

I use the mouse to turn, but use the keyboard to move. I need to unbind my 'turn' keys and map them to strafing since that's all I usually do (i think) anyways. Which would free up 2 new keys for trinkets/cooldowns/whatever. Just haven't gotten around to it since I'm so used to it.

But did you really kb turn during the CS/quake/UT days?

If you had said "I *haven't* FPS'ed since the doom beta days, I would understand how you would have never needed to incorporate mouselook and other mouse-dependent neural pathways into your brain. I don't really know how it's even possible to play any of the quake games, or any half-life engine-based games without using mouselook at the very least.

I'll also toss in that I only play like that for tanks and melee classes. I use the "normal" mouse and 1-5 method for healing and ranged classes.

I mouse turn and use WASD for movement/strafing. All of my abilities are 1-5 as well as letters that my left hand has easy access to (lots of mod:shift macros as well). I have fairly large hands but I don't flubb my keystrokes. I tell myself it's from my years of classical piano training but I don't think that's the real reason. :)

It's weird, I have lots of toons and my interrupt key is either R or T. I have no idea why I didn't keep them all to one letter but I never have missed an interrupt because of me forgetting where it was. I will say that I place my abilities based on a "rhythm" of the keystrokes. That I know is from my piano playing days.

Back to the thread at hand.

Rebuke. Love it. Love it some more.

It almost makes me want to pick up my pally tank again. Then I tell myself that I have Shield Reflect on my warrior and giggle at incoming Shockblasts.
