Jul 12th 2011 2:04PM Very nice write up to introduce people to these beautiful little tools.
I've been a devout Nostromo for years now, so much so I don't think I could play without it, and just very recently acquired a Naga to use alongside. I figured I could add a couple extra thoughts from my experience.
With regard to movement, I'm stuck on keeping WSAD as well so the central buttons on the Nostromo(3, 7, 8, and 9) are bound to these. The remaining keys are bound to the number keys 1-0. As you mentioned, modifier keys are great in this setup. I've found the Nostromo's D-pad to be great for this. I've bound forward and back to ctrl and alt, the other directions being set to tab and shift+tab for targeting. This setup gives me 30 hotkey combinations easily accessible with one hand.
In my UI, I've gotten by without too many special arrangements to support this. I'm using Bartender4, and simply have three hotkey rows along the bottom of the screen, and bind them in the addon.
I haven't delved into the naga too much yet, but I have to point out one of its other nice features. Even without special binding, the keys can be set to be the numbers, or the numeric key pad. Using it as the numeric pad, I pick up another 12 keys which can be bound to whatever, and see the modifiers set on the nostromo. So far my use of the Naga has only been light, but my favorite thing to tie it to is Opie. The first couple thumb keys are bound to open rings that hold my more occasionally used hotkeys(mounts, professions, hearth, etc..)
These little toys can be really useful in helping out gameplay, but be warned, they are addictive.

Jul 6th 2010 1:35PM I'm all for accountability, that part makes sense. But with this and the friends list why the charge to tie it to the actual name? Couldn't we just let people pick a unique name per account and avoid this chaos.
Everyone keeps referencing Facebook, but when did Facebook start requiring that your account info matches a billable credit card. I don't want to put my real name out there, so I don't, but I can still have an account.
Mar 8th 2010 10:27PM Looking at the DK example, might it be that Frost Presence will convert the mastery damage into damage reduction? Something similar for bear form might be the solution for us Feral Druids.
