All good stuff.. but what if you are left-handed like me?! It's like I'm from another planet when it comes to keyboards and mice, all for right-handed, and if you find one for lefties it cost twice what the normal one would and still is lacking. (Razers left handed mouse has like 6 buttons total and cost more than the one with twice that amount).Sorry if I strayed off-topic, but it's a shame to see all this good info and have be so useless to me.

I'm not sure what you mean by this. I'm left-handed, but still use WASD to move / strafe (with my left hand) and my right hand to click and turn. How do you play?No matter, I think this info can still be usefull to you, you just need to think about which keys are near whatever keys you use to move and keybind those, same rules apply:Close keys will have instant casts, far away keys will be longer cooldowns, rarer usage etc.Also, Razer has some ambidextrous mice (the lachesis) which shouldn't be too bad.

Substitute A, W and D for J, I and L and go from there.

For leftys try TYHJ as the strafe and move keys then change CTRL and the windows key (easily done) so you have 2 modifiers easily available over your thumb. The "tetris block" style for movement is weird at first but totaly frees your index finger, assuming u use your ring finger for forward (Y). As for mice try find an ambidextrous gaming mouse with some extra side buttons, the old razer copperhead is good here, id love a naga or something for leftys but im not holding my breath. Ofc you could just practice playing right handed and save money and hasel long run but thats not for me.

I'm a lefty, and I've always played using WASD with my left hand and the mouse with my right. I always assumed all lefties and righties all played the same way. Guess not?

Yea.. I'm a lefty. I like to use my ability to adapt to right handed-playing as a way to stoop down to the level of the masses and see what their feeble lives are like.But seriously, just use it like right-handed people. Its designed that way. Sucks, but the truth.
