First of all, here are the "pros" of the mouse:
* It has a LOT of buttons
* It glows and has shiny colors
* It looks expensive, and has a little WoW logo on the plastic, as well as a WoW-skinned software UI.
Here are the cons:
* The "macro system" is just insertion of keys into the keyboard buffer. That means if you want to "stopattack" a mob that just got sheeped or CC'ed, the keys will "collide" with any other keys you're typing at the time (including your "wasd" movement keys) and will type them directly into the in-game chat buffer. (see video) This is the exact same macro functionality as any other macro-capable non-WoW mouse.
* Names with extended ASCII characters are not recognized by the macro software. That means those with extended ASCII or from non-US locales won't be able to utilize the armory feature within the software.
* The software does not come shipped in the box. If you do not have the internet for some ungodly reason and plan on using this mouse on an offline PC game, you are out of luck.
The "not good, not bad" parts:
* The mouse (at least IMHO) is uncomfortable for those with small hands. I am a female gamer with small hands (5'2", 100 lbs) -- extended play sessions are not possible with this mouse since it is designed for a larger hand.Read more ›
The "Macros" that are build into the mouse cause the text box in the game to come up and the mouse actually types your macro letter by letter into the chat frame. Obviously this makes those macros useless, since you can probably type them faster manually. The other flaw with the macros was that when you build a custom macro and removed the time delay between keyboard inputs the macro was typed too quickly or inaccurately or incompletely to execute.
The mouse is only capable of actuating buttons on your main action bar or main pet bar. So if you have buttons on other bars you need to use a workaround, and map the mouse buttons to keyboard strokes and map your action buttons in game to the same keystrokes. It actually works very well in game, but you need to get past the idea that you're now setting your game up around the limitations of your mouse and that those buttons will still produce the same useless keystroke combos outside of the game. Alt+Shift+Q isn't all that useful outside of WoW now is it?
The software itself was a bit difficult to use, even for a seasoned WoW player. My biggest issue ended up being frustration over setting or resetting the basic mouse button functions we're used to with any other mouse on earth. I remapped the "browser back" button and there was nothing in the documentation to tell me how to get that function back. (Which you find in a drop down menu by right clicking the button in the on screen diagram of the mouse.Read more ›
I purchased this mouse coz I spend an embarrassing amount of time playing WoW and while I've thoroughly enjoyed my 9 button CybaSnipa mouse (which I recommend you investigate), the thought of having 15 buttons made me buy and continue to use (and recommend with qualifications) the Steelseries wow mouse.
Note, I use a Logitech G15 classic 18 button keyboard and the utterly amazing Razer eXactMat control mouse pad along with my Steelseries WoW mouse. In-game, I use all 10 bars displayed with Bartender4, and all this is to say I live for macros and the more buttons the better.
So, the Pros:
Lots 'n' lots o' buttons. I love my super comfortable Cybasnipa 9 button mouse but find, as a wow player with a hunter, that it's very sweet to offload some of my common tasks to my mouse; hunters mark, pet passive, and 3 different MD target macros, mount/dismount, aspect swapping, pet mend and explosive trap all have been offloaded to my Steelseries mouse. I don't think I can go back to any mouse with fewer buttons now. It's just so convenient.Read more ›
