Definitely going to use this article to help wean me from some old habits.I'd like to add something that I do (novel or otherwise). I'm a reformed keyboard turner. I now use a Logitech gaming mouse that has a small amount of buttons, and I've bound all of my movement to it. With one button click from my thumb I can strafe left, strafe right, backpedal (which is sometimes still useful), along with the traditional right click for camera turning and simultaneous right and left click to auto run. This leaves my left hand entirely free for executing other actions. The only time I run into an issue here is when I need to click to target something, or click a rarely-used spell, and move at the same time. That can lead to some awkward temporary keyboard turning at times.I have every letter of my keyboard bound to something or other, with similar spells matching across classes for certain things (silences are always on 1, for example, so Silence, Counterspell, Wind Shear...with stun-like effects on 2, Psychic Horror, Frost Nova. Defensive CDs like tanking damage reductions, Dispersion, Ice Block, are always on V. So not too easy to fat finger, but not too far away.Though I'd really like to move away from lining up spells across the board in lines and organizing them more organically as you've illustrated above.
