A couple really needless wipes on the Big Bad Wolf last night (caused when he took me out during the Red Riding Hood debuff) have got me wondering whether I need to improve the way in which I move in-game, and how I would best be able to maximise my mobility. I figured that this was the best place to come.
Coming from more of an FPS tradition I've been using the WASD/mouse movement style, and triggering most abilities by mouse clicking. While this is what I'm used to, I'm convinced at this point that it's gimping my tanking ability.
I suppose my options are to either go with mouse-only movement, or re-bind my hotkeys to the keys right around the WASD area (i.e. 123qerfTABSHIFTzxc, or something like that), so that I can use WASD for movement, but eliminate 'point-click' ability use. I was wondering which method seems to be the most effective/most popular, and if anyone has any other mobility tricks.
