I formerly healed through Wrath with an Apple Mighty Mouse that had the right-click sensor busted. Yes, I healed (and well, lead the guild in numbers) with a one-button mouse. I really don't get the obsession with buttons.

I am guessing you use mouseover macros and hot keys?The "obsession" essentially comes down to there being five fingers on either hand. While it's perfectly possible to use keybinds, and then shift-keybinds and then ctrl-keybinds, etc you're using all of this bandwidth on your left hand, while your right hand becomes a dulled single finger. I do things like put my dispell buttons, pain suppression, and binding heal on my mouse, to keep both hands in the mix.If I were really serious about optimizing, I would put all of my instant casts on the mouse and all of my other spells on the keyboard, because I don't like trying to run and move and cast at the same time.I hope this helps you in understanding at least some of the reasons that multi-button mice exist. They are a convenience, and can be enjoyable to use in play. It's perfectly possible to use a trackpad or an eraser mouse, or (what I used to use) a trackball.

I was using Healbot and several combinations of shift, control, and alt. I've since changed to Clique and default frames, but with a 2 button mouse (Magic Mouse).I fully understand why people want buttons, it's just a different method of input and that's just fine. I just like to brag about healing well with a one-button mouse in front of people who insist you absolutely must have a 30-button mouse to heal at all :)
