    Warrior keybinding help

    Hey guys,
    I decided to throw all my abilities on key binds. I know it isn't supposed to be an easy change over, but I feel really awkward about my bind set up, mostly the Z -> B key binds. Could anyone offer advice on better placement, it would be much appreciated ?
    Here is my setup atm..Shift modifier keys are the bottom one:

    I recommend using QWE for movement but that's just me. I wouldn't have HP pot on 2, have charge or something else on 2.

    I use a Belking n52te gamepad, all of my movement is on my thumb which allows every ability I have to be keybound. I would recommend it.

    wow, i guess I'm too complex i use the default binds with Ctrl alternates on the number row and use the numberpad for shouts and defensive cooldowns

    This is my setup, it's pretty radically different from that one, but I really like it:


    1 - devastate
    2 - HS
    3 - Revenge
    4 - Shield Slam
    5 - Shield Block
    6 - Conc Blow
    7 - Zerker rage

    Shift 1 - charge
    Shift 2 - commanding
    Shift 3 - demo show
    Shift 4 - Blood Rage
    Shift 5 - Int Shout
    Shift 6 - Challenging Shout
    Shift 7 - ... actually I can't remember what I have bound here, I guess I don't use it much

    q - trinket 1
    shift q - trinket 2, or if I don't have a second trinket with an on use effect equipped I will bind this to WotF
    e - shockwave
    shift e - heroic throw
    f - thunder clap
    shift f - macro with charge and heroic throw bound to the same thing
    g - focus
    r - taunt
    z - commanding shout
    v - spell reflect
    ` - vigilance
    cntrl v - equip weapon, sometimes for arms this is my 2hr for when I use my spell reflect macro, sometimes this is bound to items such as the rocket pack on gunship
    F1 - Last Stand (I click shield wall to insure I never accidentally fat finger it)
    Caps Lock - taunt focus target macro
    M4 - "oh shit button" - has pots, healthstones, enraged regen, etc. etc. bound to it
    Shift M4 - just enraged regen
    M5 - shield bash/pummel macro

    Oldschool gaming advice - put movement keys to ESDF. You suddenly get 3 more keys to bind with zero loss of convenience.

    Second thing - put HS and Cleave on mousewheel.

    It just takes a little time to get used to it. Don't give up. Once you've used your binds enough that they become reflexive, you'll find your play improves significantly.

    For my Tank Spec my Kb's are like this:
    1-Revenge macro(Cast revenge and Heroic strike)
    2-Devastate
    3-Shield Slam
    4-Shockwave
    5-Taunt

    Ctrl+1-Cleave
    Ctrl+2-Shield Block
    Ctrl+3-Blood Rage
    Ctrl+4-Thunder Clap
    Ctrl+5-Zerger Rage

    Alt+1-Charge
    Alt+2-Shield Wall
    Alt+3-Last stand
    Alt+4-Heroic Throw
    Alt+5-Vigilance

    Then My scroll wheel goes like this
    UP:Challenging shout
    Down: Spell Reflect
    Click: Auto Run

    My keybinds seem very simple compared to other peoples here but I've gotten so used to them I'm not sure i could change
