I bought GW2 recently and have really been enjoying the short time playing. So much so that I'm considering upgrading from my 4 button wheel mouse to see if I can improve my toolbar slickness. The RAT 7 M.M.O caught my eye but rather than just drop £80 and take my chances I thought I'd hit up the the community here first?


Do you/ did you own this mouse? Was it worth it? If not are there better alternatives?


Happy seasonal greetings to you all :)

What I have been considering is a Razer Naga Hex. Have loved my Deathadder v2 and am interested in using the Naga Hex. Don't think I would be able to use more than the dedicated 6 buttons so no need for more excessive things like the Naga Epic although I have given the RAT 7 MMO some thought.



Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

I own a razer naga epic for each of my desktops, love the mouse, but it is pricey


Used my cousins hex, which is also nice to work with.

The wife and I play GW2 right now as well and Quite happy with the Logitech G500 In World of Warcraft I used it for my Mage and Prot Warrior  3 Buttons at thumb and 3 clicks at mouse wheel (left center and right) also was enough for me. So 6 is all I have ever used or needed extra for MMORPG's and Shooters I also played Everquest from  the start when 50 was max level and Nagafen and Vox were the badass bosses in EQ and the Trolls still resided in Grobb.

GW2 doesn't really have that many buttons to press unlike WoW. Any standard 2-3 side button mouse should be fine. If you play MMOs with a crap ton of skill bars then get one of those Razer mouse.

I used to have the Razer Naga, great mouse. I found it fun in FPS's it was great just to push a button on the side of the mouse to switch weapons. Never really used it to play MMO's though. I also found it great in RTS's too, used the buttons there to select groups of units and was able to move between groups really quickly and easily.

A friend of mine has the regular R.A.T. and loves it, for me when I bough my latest mouse a Razer Deathadder it was a tossup for me between that and the R.A.T.

"You're obviously both fantastically brilliant" ... yeah, rimx and clay are pretty important people around here. I heard that they both created the matrix, but don't take my word for it - or anyone elses for that matter - because it'll likely be ignored.

Yes, but if Rhode Island were to leave, we'd be screwed!

so you're not considering getting an actual good mouse and using the completely functional keyboard numbers?


the rat7 and a lot of the razer mice have a notoriously crappy sensor - philips twin-eye. You can read all about it on the interwebs. So just go for something Logitech or Steelseries. They have much better products overall but always check for the sensor. It's the most important part of the mouse.
