Just as a warning, I went the other extreme once I decided to stop clicking. I used dominoes for its many action bars and I bound all the keys to something and this resulted in me typing entire sentences to fight and never touching my mouse. I'm still looking for the right way, but thought I would share some things that have helped. The biggest thing that has helped is moving some of the default bindings to the area of the keyboard you aren't using. Once I got used to not using the keys around my hand for mundane out of combat stuff like sitting or looking at my character pane, I slowly readded the keys to stuff on my bars.Bindpad is awesome if you can remember what you bound it to, but Dominoes and the like are still my main source of keybinds as I can at least see what it is I'm pressing. I'm slowly lowering the opacity and reducing the clutter, but sometimes I still need to see it and the cooldown is nice until I find a better addon for that.OPie is another awesome addon. I use it on my hunter for the aspects, tracking, and professions. It uses a combination of mouse/keyboard, so it's not as fast as keybound shortcuts, but still clears space from the keyboard for stuff you are going to use when you have time for it anyways. Those wanting click friendly might want to consider this alternative so you don't have to move the mouse quite so far but still use the mouse a lot.Macros help a lot, especially ones that use modifiers to determine the spell so you can stack multiple spells on one button. Using #showtooltip means you can see on what spell you are about to cast (and it's tooltip if you do happen to mouseover). I don't have an endgame hunter, but my pally hits the same "button" for all 3 judgments... 1 for JoL shift-1 for JoJ and alt-1 for JoW. It's one button on the bar using a macro. Many sites offer macro advice including this one.I'm still figuring things out, so I am not the best source, but as hard of a time as I have had to find useful info, I felt it worth sharing my experience to someone who is also looking.
