@MkrahThere's no real 'guide' to key-binding. Usually just having the 1-9 keys as your actions as default is a good start. Get a feel and rhythm for your rotation and you start mentally remembering where things are.Now, personally I bound the Strafe keys to my A and D instead of the turn keys, which are horribly cumbersome, but it's up to personal taste. This also gave me the advantage though, of being able to bind any important clutch abilities or items to my Q, E, R and any keys around my WASD movement keys.You don't need to pull up any action bars to bind them manually through Blizz's cumbersome keybinding interface. I HIGHLY recommend using an addon called BindPad. Basically, you can make a macro button of whatever ability you want, or just drag the skill from the spellbook onto the BindPad interface. Now you want to keybind it, and it's incredibly simple. Just left-click on it to get the keybinding screen, and click what key you want to bind it to. And that's it! No extra action bars or scrolling through insane numbers of functions and keys!That's really all I can recommend. In the end it's still about what's comfortable for you. Keybinding will increase you reactivity in the longrun, IMO, but of course there's still a room for clickers everywhere (I also use Clique simple one-click functions like healing my pet or using abilities easily w/o even binding them either; hence my playstyle is really more of a combination).
