    Hard-to-reach buttons could be for convenience stuff like map, inventory, etc.

    I prefer to rest my thumb on 5, so I can roll up and hit 2. 8 is just a bit further back, the keys on either side of those three keys are easy to hit with just a tiny roll of the finger. 10, 11 and 12 I usually assign to less than critical skills/functions because while my thumb "knows" where they are, they can be a bit uncomfortable to use often.

    all you need, the rest is on the keyboard anyway.

    the program has guild wars pre-programmed and is multitask build, the naga has a ton of buttons that just grimps the thumb, most of them are simply useless.
    i rather have a hand that doesn't hurt while playing a game rather then a mouse that just makes a ton of stress on just one finger, making the game a hell to play.

    I have been using the naga for a while and I was afraid of just what you are saying but honestly, once you get used to it, it is not a strain on the thumb at all, in fact I hardly notice it in every day use. The one you linked seems a nice alternative though, I like the idea of keeping it simple. The advantage of the naga is that it has functions directly available without having to resort to a modifier key (which is handy if modifiers are not supported) while the Kone seems to have a very functional design with minimal bulkiness.

    this. i dont even notice it either, at first it took awhile for my thumb to get used to all those options because i was using the WoW cata mouse which had buttons all over it so it wasnt all thumb. there was a period of time that i really didnt like the mouse because i couldnt adjust to the buttons and how they were arranged. but it took me about a week of seriously play time to get 100% used to it and now i dont even notice hitting the buttons my thumb has memorized the pad and i dont even have to think about it anymore. 10,11,12 are the only buttons on the mouse that i dont like using for my attacks. saying most of them are useless is a pretty bold statement. i use every buttons on my mouse and even use the ones im already using with shift. i used to be like you, i used to hate on the naga when all my friends would talk about how good it is and id just blow it off. boy am i glad i finally sucked it up and got one, because i was an idiot for trying to act like it wasnt a good mouse before even using it.

    LOL BUMP

    So, overall this mouse is recommended, right? Does it work with all games? I have been kicking around the idea of picking one up for GW2 & D3.

    I had a razer back when, and even then it worked with all games. It came with software that let you program buttons to take over keyboard functionality. I assume the same is true with the new mice.

    Well it's not like you absolutely have to make use of all the buttons, in D3 it already helps if you can activate skills 1-4 with the mouse when you are mostly holding down shift-key already.

    Note that specifically for action-RPG titles they advertise the Naga Hex.

    Either way, it takes some practice, but it's well worth it.
