When I started, I couldn't keep my fingers off the arrow keys to move. This became a nuisance when I wanted to move and fire off a shot at the same time, or when I wanted to turn. I used to put my zoom in/out on the Num pad, too. All that did was take up usable macro and ability keys. I don't think my AWSD keys even do movements any more. Once I got a mouse with a wheel, I can zoom and move simultaneously and still shoot my target. It's more fluid.But for shots and other abilities, I prefer the keys. However, with some targeting abilities like Flare and Volley, I still click a button on-screen because I still have to place the target anyway.

For Targeting AoEs like Flare, Volley, Blizzard etc. is even more important to be bound to a key than single target abilities like Aimed Shot, Sinister Strike, Fire Blast if just because you also have to mouse click where you want to attack.While your finger is sweeping to the button on your keyboard that has Volley bound to it, for example, you can simultaneously position your mouse cursor just where you want it to be. Afterwards, if you don't click the mouse to let off the ability, you can still cearly and precisely aim, rather than sliding your cursor from the middle of the screen to the ability, then back to the top of your screen where the target is.In your way of doing that, in the process you are actually thinking about the ability, then applying your thoughts on moving the AoE circle back to the target. That takes roughly 4-6 times longer, depending on the situation.
