Razer Naga - A let down?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well, I write to you guys today in slight disappointment. I bought a Naga to replace my steelseries world of warcraft mouse since the wow mouse has a lot of driver issues (I'd frequently have to re-enable the option in my UI while playing, wow was having a difficult time remembering that yes, I am using the "licensed" warcraft mouse).

However, last night while running heroic BRC I noticed something interesting, my bindings on the mouse were inconsistent. Then I thought, well wait, the naga uses the numpad for bindings, would it switch bindings everytime I hit numlock? Yep.

I'm a lazy kind of guy so I frequently use numlock during runbacks or whatever slightly straight run may occur while playing. But whenever numlock is enabled/disabled, the bindings will switch to different keys respectively. 4 turns into arrow left, for example.

I realize I could just rebind the autorun feature of wow to something more convenient, but why wouldnt they make the mouse to just add 17 buttons to the mouse and not use existing keyboard functions. The steelseries mouse used 15 additional mouse buttons (Mouse 6,7,8, and so-on).

This isn't a QQ post about how the Naga sucks. I'll still use it, I'm just wondering as to why they couldnt map the buttons like the steelseries mouse.

Turn mouse over

Or


Change your autorun button.


Problem solved.

Besides, I can hit the majority of the number row with my left hand.

But thanks for not being condescending :-D

i think you realize, but i'm not sure based on your posts, that you can just rebind the buttons on your Naga? Say, bind them to alt+1 alt+2 etc and then just use those keybinds on your bars. That way you can use your left hand to hit 1-7 or whatever you're comfortable using your fingers for, and also have extra buttons.

lol i'm sure you realize with some thought that razer doesn't equal steelseries. why should they map their buttons like steelseries. The naga works fine for everyone else. there are two settings the mouse is on and both mode allows for multiple types of custom binding. condescending because your post is not very intelligent.

From what I have read about the Naga, it was never meant to provide you with additional buttons, but rather move current buttons to a more accessible location. (Read: moves your numpad to your mouse so you can actually use those keys without having to move your hand off your mouse to hit them.)

Pretty much this..

I moved a lot of buttons I can't easily access + I made macros to bind there (such as Alt + F1 or something that is hard to hit) and used it like so.
