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.
