I received the Razer Naga for Christmas and I have never been happier.They are very right when they say that it takes *hours* to get used to it, and I still have the tendency to move my hands back to my keyboard if I suddenly find myself in PvP.I raid as a Resto Druid most of the time, and mouseover macros + grid with this mouse is amazing. I still move with WASD, but all my heals are right on my mouse, the hand I want to mouseover with in the first place. It is very intuitive to me, and I really enjoy my setup.I use the Naga for every character, and I am a bit of an altoholic. Resto druid, PvP Arcane Mage, Ret Pally (all at 80) along with a bazillion alts all use the mouse exclusively.The one concern that many of us had before getting the Naga was that it did not create "new" buttons like the N52te or whatever it is (I have never used one), but rather puts your "1234567890-=" row of keys on your mouse. Or your numberpad. Razer has said that they are working on manual button assignments in the next driver update, I haven't checked to see if it's out yet.TL:DR It takes awhile to get used to but it's worth it.

I agree 100%, except that the Nostromo doesn't create it's own - it mirrors the 1 through = keys on my keyboard. The naga gets the numpad keys. I've heard that the Nost can do it's own buttons, but I've certainly never found a use for that.

The patch is out there, though I still use 123... buttons. I'm also play a resto druid, and found that it took about a month to get used too, but now idk if I can live without it.only problem is I only use 123456 and 8, the rest of the buttons is only assigned to things I rarely use in combat, they are simply too far away to feel comfortable. But with shift, ctrl and alt modifiers and opie on the two buttons to the left of leftclick, I got more buttons than I would ever need.

Loving the Naga. Best thing I bought since my Logitech G13 (which replaced a dying Nostromo N52). I believe on a full hands-on control scheme that requires absolutely minimal keyboard contact (the HOTAS/Cougar spoiled me, what can I say).I had a different experience to most people with the Naga, I picked up the thumpad almost immediately and have had no problems. I'm playing a Rogue and a Feral Druid (Switching between cat and bear very regularly). Here's the keys I use:1. Vent PTT2. Jump (I love having jump bound on the mouse. It seems 'right')3. Cat/Flight toggle4. Opie Quest Item Ring5. Autorun (this key will wear out faster than every other, I promise you).6. Bear/Flight toggle (can you tell I don't like caster form?)7, 8, 9. Three more Opie RingsI don't use the bottom row at all, nor the two extra 'face' buttons.The Logitech's thumbstick is my movement, and the keys are bound to all sorts of ability macros. My UI has only a small segment of buttons visible, mainly so I can see their cooldown counters. Almost nothing on my UI is 'clicked'.
