So I recently ran some 2s to test out my UI and keybindings after a long break to the game and realized that I had way too much stuff going on to be functional.
I decided to scrap everything and restart. So what I decided to do was bind 1,2,3,4,F1,F2,F3, Esc, ` , and a few letter keys to my main rotations and things that I press pretty consistently. Pretty standard.
I then had to decide how I was going to go about using my support spells like my heals and things like hand of freedom... I figured that I would bind my mouse buttons on the side of my mouse (I have 2 of them) to Shift and Ctrl, thus allowing me to click between my mouse button and open up 1 - 5 and the F keys for Support spells.
Well I'll cut to the chase.. It didn't work, I went into the Razer config screen and made macros that were bound to Shift and Ctrl, but the issue i had was that the macro forces me to either A) register the Shift/Ctrl hold for a few seconds of delay or B) click it really fast and register it for 0.000 seconds of delay.
When i go with A, the Shift button stays held down for a few seconds so if i let go and want to swap back to Attacking and using my main rotation it wont allow me to I am stuck on the Shift Set that i have created.
When i go with B, the Shift button is held down to quickly and then doesnt really register. If I hold my mouse button down it doesnt seem to realize i am holding it down and it just acts as if i only clicked it, making it imposible to stay in the (Support mode) for more than a second.
I hope this makes sense...
If anyone could give me a bit of guidance It would be really appreciated.http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/7200060261#1

Buttons 4 and 5 on the mouse (left-side buttons) will work as-is. They're valid mouse buttons.
Anything past 5, bind to obscure keyboard keys. Eg, buttons 6-9 on my mouse are bound to F5-F8. Then when you go in-game, the game will recognize these buttons as normal keyboard keys, and can bind them.
By the way, you're thinking of your bindings totally the wrong way, especially for PvP. First rule of good binding is: place vital things close to your index finger and work progressively outward from there; 2nd rule is: keep things logically categorized. (Edit:
Third rule is, never step backwards or turn with the keyboard. Turn with your mouse, and use only strafe/forward on the keyboard!)
After several years of PvP, I honestly can't believe anyone still uses 1-N keys as their main binds. If you want some ideas of how I do it, take a look at my binding setup for some classes.
