Shifting over to ESDF not only provides a whole row of extra keys to your left, the F key usually has a little blob on to helpefully and reliably allow you to locate it without ever having to look down.
My strategy with keybindings is to never have to move my middle finger away from the Move Forward (E) key, so movement is never limited while I'm activating abilities. Using the S & F keys for strafe, and using the right mouse button for turning also helps immensely.
So now I have Q, W, R, T, A, G, \, Z, C, and V, as well as the Shift and Ctrl keys easily within reach without compromising my ability to move and attack/heal at the same time.
