Feeding my addiction.. in an ergonomic manner

Woot! Tatia, my main, is now also my highest leveled character. About damned time ;)

I managed to ding 27 while waiting for my ride on Friday night (we went out of town camping for the weekend)(see, I’m not addicted).

When we returned I found a new toy waiting on the front steps. Nostromo N52. It’s a little bit dated (5 years old) but I’m hopefull it will fill the void I’m seeing in playing WoW from the keyboard.

Situation:
Standard mode of operation, dash up to mob using “wasd” to maneuver. Right-mouse click to choose target(mouse about to swivel camera for best view). Remove left-hand from “wasd” and hit proper number keys “1-6″ to trigger proper seals/judgements/consecrate.

Problems:
If I need to move during the fight I have to reposition hand on “wasd”. If I need more than 5 spells I need to reach across the keyboard to hit “7-=” (using a natural split keyboard to prevent RSI).

These problems weren’t so bad in PvE just a little annoying.. but sitting around flat-footed while hunting for the number “8″ on the keyboard is just an advertisment for some rogue to backstab me in PvP.

Solution currently in testing:
Nostromo N52

I’ll do a full review after I’ve had a chance to fiddle with it for a week or two. So far, looks promising.
