This is more or less how my keyboard is set up for every character I play currently.
Remember this is based on a standard keyboard, and I myself do not have huge hands so in some cases such as the numbers along the top you could bind as far as 7 and it should still be comfortable for you if you have bigger hands.BLUE
indicates movement keys, as you can see I have them bound to E
which I do because it frees up three extra keys to use for spells which are Q, W and A. You may also use modifier keys GREEN
to make more use of your movement keys as bindings for spells.YELLOW
indicates spells all of which are very easily accessed from where your hand should always be on the movement keys, and with the numbers as I stated before you could go as far as 7 if your hands are big enough. So in total that gives you 20 spells to be bound not including modifiers.GREEN
indicates the only modifiers I use which are Shift
I almost never use alt as it seems like it's very hard to hit for me and I have no muscle memory to use it as a modifier, but if you are used to hitting alt then you could switch control to alt. If you use this layout and both modifiers that would open up 60 key binds for spells in total, not including modifiers for the movement keys which I use myself.
That is what my bindings look like, and they are made to be easily translated into use for any class/spec as I play a lot of different classes regularly and need to keep it simple for that.
Hope you try it out and see how you like it, any feedback would be appreciated.
I only posted this because the binding set up posted here just seems like it would be VERY clunky and hard to get used to for someone new to key binding, no disrespect meant to the OP but I'm sure he's had a long time to get used to them and I wanted to post something a little easier for someone who may be new to binding in general.
