I imagine that since you're a priest, the constant shifting of targets would become painful w/ the mouse. But when soloing or doing a five-man instance (especially as a Mage), a lot of the time it isn't necessary to constantly switch targets.However, I play a Warlock, so I find myself using "4" and "5" (the action bar spots I have assigned to Corruption and CoA respectively) quite a bit, often TABing through every mob in a pull (or every enemy player in range during PvP) and Corrupting them (this is essential for ensuring that Shadow Trance pops a few times for instant shadowbolts against my primary target). Then I do another TAB round of CoA, then I focus in on my primary target w/ Immolate then Drain Life.I also have Life Tap hotkeyed to SHIFT+S, Shadow Ward on SHIFT+A, Seduce on SHIFT+C, and Summon Felsteed on SHIFT+V (I don't need to see my ally's health bars. As if I could heal them!). So I use my keyboard w/ the left hand, and the mouse with the right hand to control my camera. Don't ask me why, but I just cannot get into using the keyboard keys A, D, and W for movement. Oh occassionally I'll use Q and E for strafing around groups while I spam Corruption, but mostly I use my Mouse Wheel button to active Autorun and the left mouse button to turn and reposition. The exception: I make copious use of S to back away from mobs just after pulling.Although, now that I think about it, I should probably switch the hotkeys for Shadow Ward and Life Tap, that way I could Life Tap while backing away from mobs.
