I play almost exclusively through my mousewheel. I use a microsoft sidewinder mouse, which has a very nice flat scroll wheel. So on my death knight this looks like:Wheel Up: Icy Touch/Plague Strike castseq macroWheel Down: Heart Strike or Blood StrikeMiddle Click: Death StrikeSh-WU: Death Coil or Frost StrikeSh-WD: Rune Blade, Gargoyle, Unbreakable armorSh-MC: Death Grip or Dark CommandCtrl-WU: Death and DecayCtrl-WD: PestilenceCtrl-MC: Blood BoilAlt-WU: Zoom InAlt-WD: Zoom OutAlt-MC: Camera Macro (sets me to raid default)This setup allows me to develop crazy fast muscle memory with my powers; executing the core 9 powers becomes a total twitch reflex. On top of that, by turning off error spam, you can wheel a lot right before it's time to execute the power, giving you very tight rotations.It's reflexive, when entering battle, to WU, WU, WD, Ctrl-WD, MC, Sh-UP, Sh-Up and with that I've diseased the whole pack, layered on all of my debuffs, and emptied my runic power.It sounds crazy, but try it. Since my mouse wheel has become the driver of all of my game play, I've become better at every role that I try. Add in mouse over macros and you become a crazy good healer; I can cleanse like a beast on my pally, buff everyone in the party in moments, etc.On top of that, moving and fighting has never been easier. For a DK DPS, this is invaluable for high-mobility raid bosses.
