I love all these examples on how to declutter the screen, so what about help decluttering gameplay? Would that fit into this column? Some recommendations on hardware and maybe keyboard bindings? Tips on efficient kb/mouse use? WoW is my first MMO and I can't seem to keep from letting go of the mouse and using kb moves for want of being able to press all the buttons I want to use. It seems like it's between that and clicking which seems worse to me although still extremely inefficient.

There are really 2 solutions to this problem.1) Buy a gamepad, or some input device to use instead of your keyboard with your left hand. I personally use a Nostromo n52 TE and I absolutely love it. There's a bunch out there with a variety of price ranges, so you should take a look.2) Bind your spell keys so they're right around your movement keys. Really, how often do you use Q an E? Put spells there. F and G are in close reach, so put spells there too. Think of all the keys you can reach easily, and re-bind them to spell keys.

Another alternative I like is getting an uber-mouse with multiple buttons/scrollers/etc. I have all 10 or so of my Logitech MX Revolution buttons and also the left-right scroller on the mouse wheel all mapped to different spells or actions...and differently for each toon.
