I bought a new mouse that has 11 programmable buttons on it. My intent was to map some of my most heavily used macros to those buttons - cure 2, regen, esuna, etc.
My macros use a mouseover targeting setup (with standard targeting in the macro for backup).
My problem: In the heat of battle, I am unable to consistently hold the mouse over someone's name while at the same time trying to press a little side button on my mouse without slightly moving the mouse cursor. This results in many times putting spells on the wrong member or no one at all.
My next iteration of probable solutions will be to map spells like Cure to keyboard keys, and put only self targeting spells/actions on the mouse, since it appears I do not have the ability to hold my mouse cursor steady while clicking an accessory button on my mouse.
I'm just curious what other people do. I konw a lot of people have the mmo mouse with 12 buttons on the side (Naga or G600). I can't image how its possible to rapidly and consistently click all of those buttons with accuracy and at the same time keep the mouse steady. I'd love to know what setups work best for other people.
I'm now considering something like the nostromo speedpad for easier non-mouse-hand binding.
