I would put the R key as green. This is my 'go to' interrupt key.Additionally, it would be interesting to get a full list of 'similar' spells for different classes that can go on similar keys. For example my R (shift, ctrl , Alt) isRogue -> Kick, Blink, Kidney Shot etc.Druid, Skull Bash, Bash etc.DeathKnight, Mind Freeze, Strangulate, pet gnaw etc.etc....Also, I put Q/E for straifing, never could use A/D. I like to use letters that are easy to remember, So D is my go-to Defensive spell (e.g.)druid -> barksin, bear formdeath Knight -> Icebound fortitiude, sac pet etc.mage -> ice barrier, mana shield, ice blockI like the space bar idea, I don't use mods on that and think I may start too.

Tim,You might consider the R key to be a more valuable bind than the average WoW player because your movement keys are Q, W, and E. R is just right of E, similarly how F is just to the right of D.I debated having R as a green key when making this guide up, but I have to draw the line somewhere. You could make an argument for Tab, Z, X, and C all being green. I personally have found most players tend to have spammable abilities above and directly around their movement keys, not below or diagonal to them.I'll go over interrupt keys and most of the things you mentioned in next week's article.Thanks for the comment,C.

I find that most people are so used to R being Reply that it is difficult to train out of it (I know it was for me)Two things I notice myself1) I have big hands and my thumb very easly reaches ALT but SHIFT and CTRL are a pain to reach.2) Most people forget about the ` key and F1-F4 keys (I use F5-F10 for my raid marks on all chars)
