Reviewing the Razer Naga Epic mouse: 12 buttons you never knew you wanted

The Razer Naga gaming mouse is one of those designs that, at first glance, you scoff and laugh at -- because frankly, the thing can look a little ridiculous. A second glance, however, becomes one of cold adoration, slowly letting the fact sink in that Razer, a company already known for quality gaming products, put what amounts to a number pad on a mouse. A third glance is silent wonderment. The number of skills you wish you could have bound to your mouse begins to take hold. "What if I put my tanking cooldowns on the second row, and let the top row deal with movement based abilities like Intervene and Heroic Leap?" I'd think. "No, it's too risky. I'd have to learn an entire new system of button presses and get an entirely new feel for a foreign mouse."

But I did. For you. What follows is my week with the Razer Naga Epic, the newest product in the Razer Naga line that takes the Razer Mamba's wireless successes and adds them to the Naga's MMO-focused capabilities. The result is an MMO mouse that is solidly built, gorgeous on the eyes, and -- after the initial shock of change to the Naga's own brand of world view -- a customizable powerhouse that has your thumb doing acrobatics you never thought it could.

Razer unleashes epic version of the Naga gaming mouse

Barely a week after the announcement of visually-upgraded special editions of its MMO gaming mouse, the folks at Razer did themselves one better to reveal an even bigger upgrade with the Razer Naga Epic. Razer's new version of the popular 17-button mouse sports a dual-mode wired or wireless functionality similar to its first wireless gaming mouse, the Razer Mamba. In addition, the Razer Naga Epic also has interchangeable side panels to accommodate different hand sizes and grip styles; the current Razer Naga has a somewhat bulky, if ergonomic, form factor that may not appeal to players with smaller hands or use the claw grip to play. The three different side panels should broaden players' options in customizing their mice to better suit their playstyle.

The Razer Naga Epic's dual-mode functionality allows the mouse to be used wirelessly or with a braided mouse cord that charges the mouse during gameplay. It also comes with a charging dock for charging the mouse during downtime. The Razer Naga Epic is aimed at all MMO gamers, with support for various MMOs such as Warhammer Online and City of Heroes, but there's no question that the mouse is targeted squarely at World of Warcraft players, with its epic nomenclature and purple glow (the regular Naga only glows blue) that can actually be configured to cycle through a possible 16 million color combinations. Razer also promises in-game addons for better interface customization, although at this time, the RazerNaga addon is only at 1.2.2, which hasn't been updated for Patch 4.0.1. The Razer Naga Epic is available for pre-order at the Razer store and slated to ship by the end of November, retailing for an equally epic $129.99.
