First, I’m pretty sure that Razer’s three headed serpent is a hail to Satan, symbolizing their devotion to their dark lord because it kind of feels evil when I put my hand on the glowing mouse. I’m just saying. You pretty much have to make a pact with the devil for this kind of product. People don’t just dream these things up without dark intervention.
I used the mouse with my engineer on Guild Wars 2 first since she was the one that pushed me over the edge and made me say, “I think I need to have this mouse right now before somebody gets hurt.” I tried some various combinations while fooling around in the kiddie zones in Queensdale. At first, it was a bit frustrating, but that was not the mouse’s fault. That was just general experimenting getting on my nerves because I wasn’t finding too many setups I liked or if I did, there was one little thing threw the whole setup off for me.
Anyway, I just gave up on my engineer for the night and worked on some of my other characters where I was finding some of the same frustrations, so I defaulted all the binds in the options menu back to their original state and started from square one. Then, I changed what I normally do in the options—such as, changing “tab” to target nearest enemy—but kept it simple. And finally, gameplay started getting better for me. Right now, it’s just a matter of consciously reminding myself to hit the keys on the side of the mouse and not the keyboard as well as becoming familiar with what keys are where. I appreciate the middle row has ridges, but I still have to peek to make sure that I’m hitting 4 and not 5.
In fact, it feels better to hold the right mouse button down now. It seems to help anchor and position my fingers correctly on the side buttons. Didn’t get any hand cramps just yet, but I haven’t put it to the real test yet.
