But anyways, since it was like that, I had difficulty enjoying the game and was a little disappointed. After being bored and checking out some screenshots, character customization that was posted on /v/ and such, and watching Kripp's opinion video... I am very hyped for my 3 day head-start now smile.gif
Still unsure of what I want to play, but I am leaning towards Thief or Elementalist.

TotalHalibut also has a good review/opinion on the BWE events. Got me excited.

I personally don't think an "MMO" mouse would be beneficial at all for this game. Even the most complicated class (elementalist or engineer) only has ~17 keybinds, compared to say a Priest in WoW which has up to 80 keybinds. I think the most important thing is just setting up a good set of keybinds. Anyways, after playing both engineer and elementalist extensively, and being a pretty huge perfectionist when it comes to efficient/optimal keybinds, I've found this to be pretty much the ideal setup:

1-5 = weapon abilities
Q= Utility Skill 1
R=Utility Skill 2
T= Utility Skill 3
6= Ultimate
F= Heal ability
Z, X, C, V = the f1-f4 skills respectively (also know as profession skills). At least for Engineer and especially Elementalist, these binds must be easy to to use, that means no modifiers, and no out of reach keys.

E= Dodge (Important to bind dodge, double-tap is too slow in high-level PvP)
G = Use item/interact
Shift= weapon swap/drop bundle
~= Call Target/Mark Target
Tab = default function (cycle targets)

W=forward
S=backwards (important to bind this in this game with how kiting and ability aiming works, also for S+dodge to roll backwards)
A=strafe left
D=Strafe right (important to switch these to strafe in this game because of how the camera system works)
Space = Jump/Swim Up
Mouse 4 = Auto-run
Mouse 5= Look behind
CTRL = Swim Down

F1 = Character screen
F2= PvP screen
F3= WvW screen
F4= undecided (most likely another menu screen)
B= inventory
N= Map (closer to left hand than M)

Even so, I'm still gonna try out that logitech mmo mouse.

After having my naga for a few months now, the problem I have with trying to bind everything to the keyboard is movement. I almost never have to take my hand off the movement keys when 90% of my abilities and actions can be done with my thumb on the mouse.

It may not be a big deal but I just dont feel at ease if I have to stop moving even for a split second to hit a number key or any other key, so I try and reduce that as much as possible.

100% even more important with gw2 since you can move and cast at the same time

Personally, I unchecked the double tap to roll and bound it to V...

To each his own..but imho...that's not good enough to play at optimum. Even using "5" and "6" isn't completely fluid . Yes, its possible...but I rather just hit a button my my mouse. Also using F1 - F4 (or Z, X, C, V ) is horrible for me...I personally feel like I would waste too much time with those keys or accident hit something incorrectly once in a while. I also won't like using "G" a little too far out for me, messes up my hand placement in general...feels slightly awkward. I want to be fast and fluid as possible...and I think a G600 would help with that.

That said - you can combine keys...like..."Shift + E", ect...that would help instead of just using each has a separate hotkey...you can combine buttons to save finger movement. I need to see if my G400 is enough for this. If not...I'm getting G600.

But like I said, to each his own - just my opinion.

It should be fine, You can easily bind all your stretch moves to a 5 or 7 button mouse. For me I have a razer death adder and a roccat kone+, I use keys 1-5 on the keyboard normal style. pushing in on the scroll wheel is my dodge(also bound to V). thumb button is bound to 6, thumb + shift to 7, thumb +crtl to 8, and thumb + alt to 9, and elite skill is bound to shift + mouse wheel. makes it pretty gg easy to use any skill on my bar as most 4 and 5 skills have longer cooldowns so that stretch isn't needed often.

Never a fan of naga mice. I have a handful of friends who use and love/recommend the Corsair M90 though.
