Naga is the best mouse I know. Couldn't use another one again. Now to convince my boss that I need one at work for all the hotkeys.
Current configuration design:
12345 f1f2f3f4 stay as they are. I can reach those easily. It's the 6+ and ` that irk me.
[heal] [empty] [elite]
[util1] [util2] [util3]
[switch weap] [empty] [empty]
This currently looks like a relatively good design. Improvements can be suggested. I do have the feeling I'm forgetting a crucial combat mechanic.
I wouldn't normally recommend the Naga, but it might be good for this game. Not sure.
So people know what we're talking about...
So it's a mouse with a keyboard attacked to it. ;)
My Logitech has 8 buttons, only 5 of them matter because the other 3 are places in bad places. I forget, but I assume GW2 uses the standard 3 buttons (not sure what middle button does), so that leaves me with 2 buttons to configure. At least I don't have to assign walking, so maybe heal + elite?
It's also fun for binding stuff like double click/triple click and repeaters. Makes sweet tooth much cheaper by using non-spammable sweets at 50g instead of spammable at 200g.
But since you ask: I find the Naga difficult to use efficiently, finding that constantly moving the thumb and keeping it in the middle part of the left side of the mouse, reduces fine control. One could retain fine control through palm contact, but it's a quite small mouse, so that is not possible either.
Normally, you have 100+ potential hotkeys on the keyboard in front of you. However, in GW2, many of your fingers will be blocked due to the rather bad control scheme. That means that the Naga could still maybe be a good choice for GW2 specifically.
in regards to the naga and its size, its a pretty small mouse if its not standard size. its also very lightweight and moves seamlessly. im not sure what raspberry is referring to, controlling the mouse isnt an issue for me or anyone that i know with this mouse. i mean your thumb literally lays right on it and is real easy to hit the buttons and still move the mouse seamlessly.
also like i said id recommend this mouse to anyone. great investment and youll never want to play without it.
I can see using the thumb to press buttons AND to move the mouse as causing control issues, that is, even if the user is not necessarily aware of those issues. Thankfully though, MMORPGs (GW2 included) don't tend to require much speeded precision like fps games do, because I can see the naga not working for fps.
As I play both kinds of games (and more), I think the naga would be a bad investment for me.
