The Daily Grind: What gaming mouse do you use for MMORPGs?

From a certain point of view.

A couple of months ago, I went on a tear desperately trying to find a new mouse both for work and for MMOs and general gaming. My mouse was great in its day as it’s the perfect size for my hands (they’re small) and my wrists (they’re prone to serious pain). But it’s old now, the drivers don’t function properly with Windows 10, the plastic is eroding away, and the replacement model is terrible. And honestly, it wasn’t a gaming mouse.

I ended up with a Roccat Lua, which basically falls into the “cheap and good enough in a pinch” category, but it’s still too long for my hand, and it doesn’t have extra buttons, which I reaaaaaalllly want back — they’re indispensable when playing MMOs. There’s no way I could play, say, a respectable healer in an MMO without at least a thumb and top button.

I thought I’d make today’s Daily Grind pull double duty: I want to hear all about the mice you guys use for MMO gaming — brag away! — and hopefully get some ideas for other brands and models I might try. What gaming mouse do you use for MMORPGs? What makes it so great?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
