"While you're still learning your rotation, clicking your abilities is fine."No no no, 1000x no.I don't understand why clicking would ever be fine. I've never been a clicker, not even in my noob days and I can't figure out why some people find that easier than hitting keys. Not only is it slower, it is clunkier and bad in every way. I does NOT help in learning anything.If you want to do it right, start out right. If you are unsure how to keybind, learn that as your first priority.And that is an advice for any spec and class.

I use a G13 and a Razer Naga, so I'm keybind heavy, which is fine,.However, I can pull the same dps if I choose to click buttons, and I manage not to stand in fire.To be honest, both work fine. Only advantage KBs have is taht you can mouseturn, but as a healer using movesovers for a long time, I got used to straffing and keymoving, and its never been an issue.Click, keybind, whatever works for you.

Healers are a different subject. Clicking on frames (not on skills on your bar!) is more than fine, as long as you have skills bound to your clicks and/or use mouseover heavily.For DPS and tanking though, clicking is a big no no. I HIGHLY doubt you can put out the same dps with clicking, since you can't queue abilities with clicking (but not only because of that). "Only advantage KBs have is taht you can mouseturn"You say that as if it were something mildly important. Keyboard turning is as bad as clicking.Clicking is bad, period. No decent player clicks, and for good reason. A clicker is and has always been a synonym for a bad player. Slower reactions, clunkier and slower gameplay, etc. No advantages whatsoever, unless you are lazy.

There are clickers in the top guilds in the world. Clicking is totally fine and barely noticeable for healers, ranged DPS and even tanks but melee will suffer. You just have to develop your playstyle around it, like keybinding. But clicking in top-end PvP is suicide and there's no denying that. TL;DR -- Clicking= Fine as long as: you're doing pve on a ranged character and you know your limitations. Keybinding = Mandatory for competitive PvP.imo

"There are clickers in the top guilds in the world."Name 5 please, with links to videos.And if it's bad for PvP, why isn't it bad for PvE? I agree you need sharper reflexes for PvP, but that doesn't mean you should be slow in PvE.It is NOT a matter of personal preference or playstyle. If any clicker decides to sit down and properly keybind her stuff, after a short period of adaptation she would most certainly play better, no question about it.Can you get away with clicking in PvE? Sure you can, if you're only doing normal modes, are not focused on progression and/or don't really care about your own performance (and, consequentially, are not concerned about being valuable to your raid). If you want to step up your game though, keybind away.

Honestly, blatantly telling people that they're wrong is a quick way to their ignore list (no matter how right you really are).
