I’m trying to work out which keyboard to buy, to replace my UK-layout keyboard with a US-layout. Since I’m fairly sure I’ll also buy a Logitech G13, this means I do not need a gaming qwerty keyboard. I could get anything really.
When you play with a G13 and a Naga mouse, you do not need a normal keyboard in fights anymore. You’d use the full-size keyboard to hit ‘n’ or ‘m’ for talents and maps out-of-combat, but whilst tanking the qwerty keyboard isn’t used. I could just push it under my monitor.
However, in a 5-man, I do like to say hello and goodbye. Usually there isn’t much else to type. I suggested since greetings are the only actual typing I do, I might as well have macros like /p hi everyone.
Satorri felt that diminishes the genuineness of the etiquette; a macro makes it something superficial. That’s true in a way.
I would be happy with using a few macros anyhow. It would take no effort on my part, I just hit a button, and I’m comfortable with that. However, it does extend the concept of my party-members being an AI in the single-player game of LFD dailies.
