THe only class where could pooosibly get away with keyboard turning is as a commando/merc, but even then it isn't advisable

Have you ever used WASD? The whole point of moving with your keyboard is that you can constantly move and strafe. The confusing movement patterns you can use with turn+strafe can really throw your enemy off. Q+D or A+E will almost instantly circle you behind your opponent.

You make it sound like keyboard turning prevents you from moving in combat...

Anyways, I'm not going to argue that one is objectively better than the other. For me, WASD is far better. However, I have friends that do just as well as I do using mouse-turning. It all depends on what's more comfortable for you. Every player should try both.

I use it as a tell tale sign of a noob. Anyone one that opens from stealth with Shadow Strike, then proceed to shadow strike again is gonna be an easy kill.
