Clicking in PvP...

Post  Zakamurte on Fri Feb 08, 2008 12:14 am

...is bad, and we need to stop it.

I can't remember how many times I missclicked the trinket button to get out of fear/poly and it costed me the fight.

So, to increase your reaction speed and thus allow yourself to improve pvp skills there are several things you can do.

Bind EVERY important spell you have to some key near where your hand rests.
Now...i don't know how important this is to casters but anyway...
Talking about melee...

The first thing you need to learn is to turn with your mouse, and stop using A and D for turning. Turning with A and D is slow and is really inferior in pvp.
Simply rebind strafing to A and D and you get Q and E free for use.

Some people prefer to use EDSF or even some other setup for moving, while other remain with the WSAD setup. I'm with the second.

You probably wont be using keys on your actionbar after 5 or so, its too far for your hand to reach effectivelly, so try to rebind those somewhere closer.

Examples...
You can rebind V button (shows mobs' hp), I think its not that important.
I also rebind F (assist), which is useful for some classes/situations, but my Xperl help with that kind of targeting so I dont need it.
You can rebind buttons on your mouse, because its a good way for a fast respond, you can use the middle button, scroll down, scroll upwards etc.
I also rebind ~ key, and its probably the button I use the most in pvp or pve.
If you run out of buttons to keybind spells to, try using Shift. Example, for priests, you can bind Dispel on C and Mass Dispel on Shift+C, or you can use the same system for different ranks of a same spell (both are done with macros, maybe can be done without, but I don't know).

Also, try to use macro alone or in combination with some key, because macros are really useful and can really give you the upper hand in some situations.

I will add macros that I use later if you are interested.

And last but not least, note that every change needs time to get used to, so you have to practice some time, but the important thing is that you don't say "Oh this is too strange for me, I don't want to lose time with this" and return to the original setup and lose the progress. You gotta be persistent in what you do. Also, be creative, find new ideas about this....heh, I know a person that plays on the numpad lol.

P.S. I may have forgotten some things, because this is what I had in my mind at the moment, so if I remember something new in the meantime, I will add it.

Have fun. Smile

Heh, well...when I made that video, I was in the process of changing, so I was 50% done then, today I did the rest, though there are still 2 spells that I click (Divine Shield and Repentance), but its not that important so I will leave it.
Infact, that pvp in Nagrand made me stop clicking, seeing how many times I died of DoTs cuz I was clicking on Cleanse, and even racials...


And for you, STOP MAKING ALTS Razz
Master one class already, learn to play that priest pefectly Smile
