I have your standard 5 button mouse, and while its fine for everything, I am wanting 4 more buttons for the F1-F4 keys (Mainly Elementalist and Guardian usage)

But I do not want a mouse that has 16+ side buttons, it looks like trash (Razor Naga)

Also a good 1200-1600 DPI would be my sweet spot.

what would a good recomendation be?

Wireless for my laptop and wired for my desktop.

I use the Naga, and it is the best mouse I have ever used in an MMO.

Unfortunately there aren't that many options for mice with 6+ buttons.

there's the Razer Hex with 6 side buttons.. and then there's the Naga and g600 at 20ish buttons.

That being said, I absolutely love my g600 and could never go back...having all my skills on my mouse is great!

I recommend Logitech G700

4 easy access side button, 3 more button on top left side,
can have a few more buttons but not too easy to use.

Think its enough for GW2 ~

I use the Razor Lachesis, it has 8 buttons. I bind the two thumb buttons and two behind the mouse wheel for F1-F4. Works good for me, its sleek, ergonomic, and you can adjust DPI until your comfortable.

The Corsair M90 has 15 buttons, but the way they are arranged makes more sense than any other "MMO" gaming mouse I have seen.  It's easy to set it up to just use a few of the buttons and not have to worry about the other ones being in your way at all.  I have been using it for 2-3 weeks now and I like it more each day.  It's a bit small if you have extra large hands (like I do), but I use a different mouse for FPS games anyways...  It's worth taking a look at; cheaper than most similar mice too.

I'm pretty Razer faithful... I love their products. Having said that, I detest the appearance of the Naga as well. Several of their mice have 4-6 side buttons you could use for F1-F4. Check out the Ouroboros, Mamba, Taipan, Imperator, and Orochi. All of these have 4 or more side buttons that could be mapped to those keys. Many of their legacy products also have 4.

This is an interesting find. I like how the buttons are textured and orientated. And for the 49.99 shipped price, I went with this. My biggest complain of the other 'MMO' mice is how big the buttons are and how they are all the same, some have angles and others dont. But there is no distinct texture to them, unlike this mouse.

This might just be what I've been looking for this whole time.


Thanks!

I have a Logitech g600 and it's awesome.

The colors sometimes seem to change for no reason tho or maybe i'm doing something wrong with the settings. Probably pressing something that resets it but whatever the mouse is just too good.

It looks like Scorch already picked up a new mouse, but I'd recommend the WoW Cataclysm mouse to anybody else in the same boat.

I've been using it for a few years now and it's been nothing but great. I love the button layout and the customization options.

It is on the expensive side, and quite heavy, which can take some getting used to, but now since I've gotten used to the weight other mouses seem too light and flimsy. This mouse just feels solid.

Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.

I know this comes late but..
I disagree, I have been running the Naga for about 12 months now after swapping from a Logitech MX950 & I love it. It looks sharp, feels responsive & there are 3 different "attachment's" so you can customise it to suit your hand shape. I now only have about 5 keys that I use on the keyboard as everything else can be controlled from the 17 button, fully macroable mouse.

As for what it looks like, well I mostly look at the screen when gaming, not the mouse. ;)
Seriously though, I do think it look's sexy IMO & have attached a pic for others to see.

*EDIT: Oh and it comes wireless with a charging dock, but I play with it pluged in. Each to their own.

To add to what Enchanted said: The Naga has proven to be the most comfortable mouse I have ever used. My hand sometimes begins to hurt when working or playing on the computer for hours with every mouse... Apart from this one. That alone has made it worth the hefty price. The only thing I'm dreading is that it may give up the ghost... I'm taking good care of it but I can't afford a new one, not at this point :(

I hope you like it. :)

I have the M90 as well and can vouch for its quality. However, I find some of the buttons too hard to reach and/or stiff for things like weapon skills and most utilities, so I still prefer my mechanical keyboard for most of those bindings. I use my mouse for stuff like auto-run, weapon swap, my elite skill, etc.

I've had my M90 since approximately the time it was released and have had driver problems with it in the past that were definitely not covered in the user guide available at that time. Reading the Corsair forums fixed all of my problems without needing any help from support or an RMA, it just took some perseverance.

I use this and I couldn't be asked to use anything else in GW2

going to a regular mouse would be like chopping off a hand.

I only use 9 buttons on the side, and use my "1" as the third mouse button.

Looks goofy holding it but it's become a part of me now.

Own both the Corsair m60 and m90. The m90 for rpgs specifically. I admit it is a pain in the ass to update the firmware, and to program it. Metal base/frame makes it very robust. Button placement and design is geared towards a claw grip.

Do not get the old standard wired Razer Naga: make sure you get the new 2012 model (it's green) or any other version like the limited editions.

The original wired Razer Naga suffers from poor build quality and the switches under the LMB & RMB will suffer a mechanical failure after a few months.

This is the follow up to my Thread;

Got my M90 in and am now using it full time for playing games. It has alot of features (including; the Button Mapings and Profiles stay with the mouse if you change it to a different PC, HUGE bonus feature!)

The front 6 side buttons are easy to get to and press, the rear 3 side buttons are a bit harder to get to (their angles make them feel 'out of place' in the heat of the moment). I do not use the top 3rd Button, and the Back buttons are used to change profiles by default. I recommend leaving this feature intact.

has 3 adjustable DPI settings, and a boost(sniper) setting that is a press and hold function you can assign to one of your buttons, DPI ranges from 800-5600. Lots of flexability here.

The only real con is you cannot apply system functions to the mouse buttons, Such as Vol+/Vol-, mute, and media control (Play Pause, Forward back...ect.)

But, the entire mouse's construction is very solid, and doesnt feel weak (you can tell they use quality swiches for the buttons in this mouse).

On corasirs website the MSRP is 79.99, Newegg has it up for 49.99 shipped. Its worth every penny!

I recently bought the Logitech G600 and hated it.  It was far too large for me, and the angled buttons ended up being more hinderance than help.

I returned it for the Razer Naga and am pleased thus far.  It has 3 attachments for different sizes and generally fits my hand alot more comfortanly than the G600 did.  I have smaller hands and its the perfect fit.

The original Epic had contact problems as well, which is why I replaced mine with a G600 after only six months.

Had a Naga for 3 months replaced it with a G600, I found with the Naga I kept pressing the wrong/multiple buttons at once.

Steelseries Sensei is a good option, but it only has 4 side buttons. 5 if you include mouse wheel click.
Cyborg RAT/MMO 7 are also decent options. The MMO 7 comes with a mini D-pad (4 buttons + press down the Dpad for 1 more). RAT7 doesn't have that feature, but it still has plenty of buttons.
