Hmm, WoW being the biggest MMO in all of history maybe even the biggest game in all of history, this being an MMO site, the mouse being based on the newest expansion by the biggest MMO. Uh, ya.

I have the mamba and swear by it. It wouldn't mind giving one of those nagas a try :) I already use all 5 buttons on my mouse.

I think I'll be more happy with my, just as good, Logitech mouse for a fraction of the price tyvm.

I love my death adder, when I bought it I didnt give two *(#@s about the brand name or glowy crap I just liked how it felt in my gorilla sized hand. After using it for awhile at home and a standard microsquash mouse at work the difference in responsiveness and feel is night and day. I can't believe I went this long without a gaming mouse

Having used a Razor Naga for 8 months and then changing it out for a Logitech G500, I think I can safely say that Logitech wins. The side buttons really didn't add anything, but they did interrupt precision mouse control.

Logitech G500 + Belkin n52te = win

Adding a molten pattern to the Naga won't make it a good mouse.

I have the "plain" Razer Naga "MMO mouse" and it's an extremely nice mouse. I bought it initially thinking I'd play with it for a few days, make fun of all the silly lights, and return it for a "real" mouse confident that it was a ripoff. However, it is extremely smooth and responsive, the 12 extra buttons are very useful (once you get used to it, which took me about a month) and I never actually had any desire to return it. Even for the 70 bucks I paid, it was well worth the money.

That said, I don't see any particular value in having the WoW themed variations. I guess if it's the same cost, and you are going to buy one any way, it's nice to have a choice in appearance, but I can't see any reason to pay any extra money or put off buying the mouse in the basic appearance, because the basic black with blue lights looks pretty nice already. And it goes really well with the N52te I already had...

I have small hands, and I'm always stuck using a small laptop mouse to avoid wrist strain. But boy those buttons look awesome! Any of you guys with a Naga find that it's too big/too small based on your hand sizes?

I have the same problem and asked yesterday when it was posed it on Wow Insider. The guys who responded said it was a bit small for them and they even had trouble reaching the extra buttons comfortably. One day I'm going to take a trip to the big box store and see if they have any of these out on display, because so far, after about 6 mice, I still haven't found anything good that's both gamer oriented and 'girl/kid' sized.

Though my nightmare is that someone finally answers this and makes it pastel pink.

Thanks for that info, VioletArrows -- I suppose I'll have to try to do the same. I've never seen one on display, but maybe that's changing. Would really be nice to get a small mouse with more than one side button and the Naga looks a bit lower in angle, like my hobbit fingers might actually reach the damn buttons! :D

Let us know what you decide on. I have the same issue. I'm an adult woman and my hands are the same size as my 90-pound niece. The majority of mice out there are too big for me, especially gaming mice with extra buttons. I don't think I need as many as are on the Naga, but I do like having a few extras.

I've had several Razers that fit my hand nicely (the Copperhead and two before it who's names I forget). But their mice haven't exhibited a lot of longevity in my hands. I'm not rough on my equipment, but I've never had a Razer mouse last past 2 years before exhibiting bugs or breaking altogether. My Copperhead developed the annoying double-click bug and when I tried to update the drivers I killed the mouse. :( Maybe that's just how they make 'em these days, but I'd prefer a bit more longevity for how much money they cost!

I bought my naga about 3 months ago and while it took me some time to get used to the layout of the keypad I really can't even imagine using another mouse now. Even though it is just a reskinned mouse that dosen't make it a bad mouse.

To each their own I suppose.

Now if only they'd make something to replace my n52te.

I swear by my Naga, end of story. I had an MX Revolution before, both of them run around $70. But at least for my style I can't find a better mouse. =p

Great mouse for MMO's I love IT!

A fantastic mouse no doubt but before you buy a special edition with some pretty lights do consider that they heat up the mouse quite a bit. Luckily they can be turned off but whats the point of those special editions then?

Next thing:
-Special keyboard adapted for skill usage only + a gadget for buffs
-A keyboard meant only for chatting, now you can stop pressing enter to chat
-A superawesome LCD screen showing your HP/MP
....

I guess they're out of ideas for FPS titles now they're on their way to spoil MMO market.

Random Keyboard+Random mouse = ftw
