On top of that clicking requires a lot more hand movement - constantly moving the mouse, which is a lot more tiring over a long period of time - like 3-4 hour raid.

Also if you're a clicker you'll also need to keyboard turn, essentially limiting your movement options.

Personally I don't feel comfortable with such a setup.

Still everyone is free to play as they wish
I get the feeling it isn't sinking in. I can move the camera just fine whilst clicking, it's all about learning how to do it efficiently and effectively. As i said earlier on, there's never a reason for me to be spinning the camera around all the time. As for clicking the wrong ability - rarely happens, and i suppose the same thing could also be said for pressing the wrong keybind - but i know you'll just go ahead and refute that as IMPOSSIBRU!

Clicking doesn't require a lot of hand movement at all. It's not like i have my mouse set on minimum sensitivity also, i don't use my keyboard to turn. Another common misconception with skilled clickers. It takes less than a second to quickly move the camera to position. Less than a second = less than a GCD. Barely, if any, loss of action.

Still waiting to see factual evidence, rather than anecdotal experiences and tales of personal preference.

The mouse is for moving.

The keyboard is for your abilities.

If you aren't playing this way you are punishing your own efficiency.

It's a personal choice but make no mistake about it, if you choose to use the keyboard to move/turn and the mouse to click your abilities on the action bar you will be at a distinct disadvantage when playing against a person who uses the mouse to move and binds their abilities to their keyboard.
Well said.

To achieve the highest level of success, one must remove any and all inefficiencies from their game. This applies to all things in life, not just video games.
Sometimes one must simply accept that their way of doing things is not prime and learn to understand why this may be so. If you refuse to understand why clicking is inefficient, you are in fact refusing to take your game to a higher level.
If you are stubbornly set in your ways, you are destined to never achieve greatness.

Yes, it is a video game. I clearly referenced that fact in my post which you clearly did not read.

This may be of some use for you.

only attacks and abilities i dont click are on keys 1-6 and sometimes 7, and i do just fine. and if u try to tell me otherwise then i shall challenge you to fisticuffs.
Sometimes I like to cover myself in peanut butter, hop in the washing machine, and pretend I'm a bear.

What a great and original reply to see on the internets! Well here i was hoping you'd try and explain why you're bundling MMO's and "achieving greatness" together, but i suppose it was too much to wish for. I'd read that article, but my comprehension skills suck. I'll continue to be a pernicious little scallywag.
