    My Roccat Kone left mouse button has decided to give up the ghost. So I'm looking for a new gaming mouse.

    Any recommendations?

    I really like my Razer Deathadder. Nothing fancy, just five buttons.

    Now i use Razer Naga which is good for me but i know many people dont like it (its pretty small). Before i used Logitech g5 and g500 and both were really good.

    If you want some quality and functionality but keep it cheap I'd suggest the Sharkoon Fireglider: 2 side buttons, 1 button for dpi, 1 button for triple-click (or macro), weights ..

    If you plan on playing mmos, get a naga. It is very uncomfortable though, but the extra buttons make mmo gaming easy.

    For all other games, I use a tt-esports black. They only cost like 20 online and is the most comfortable mouse I have used in a long time.

    For comfort, the old logitech mx518 is still a favourite on most websites, especially if you have big hands.

    For mmo functionality, razer naga or hex for the extra buttons. But like Aspira said, be wary, they're known to be uncomfortable.

    Get in store and try some out. Its impossible to get our advice as it will vary based on individuals grip, hand size dexterity and general preference to weight and size.

    Many people hate the naga and say it is too small, I find it perfectly sized and weighted. I love my naga for all games, but that's my preference, it is unlikely to be yours.

    When we are on mouse topic, I would like to ask you guys about mouse pads. Mine is old and i have to buy new one. Now the thing is if its worth to buy something like glass one or its just a gimmick and its not worth it? Only problem is it can't be black as razer mouses have problem with working on them (not like all razer mouse pads are black or anything -.-)

    Im use the mx518 and its really comfortable, dont need a million buttons, there's plenty on my keyboard.

    I use this it covers my whole desk and its so nice.

    I love my Naga (Hex).
    Also have a normal naga, don't like the buttons on it.
    The hex is amazing though, much easier to use and with mechanical buttons.

    It did take me a day to get used to it but I love it (playing diablo with only the mouse :D)

    But as said, personal preference try it in stores :)

    In all fairness, I bought a Razer Vespula last summer (or was it 2 summers ago, can't remember) and I've been in love with it since. It's absolutely amazing. Dual sided as well.

    I like my vespula, but I loved my eXactMat (Both razer).
    It's no longer being sold (sadface) but it was metal with a bigger and softer handrest.

    Razer naga epic, i think there is nothing better out for mmos.

    Cloth mousepads all the way. See if you can get a BoogieBug XL - It's massive, covers your desk and I got mine for only around £15.

    I bought my second razer sphex yesterday because its great (old one got damaged in my house move) its like a sheet of laminate its so thin ans smooth. Only issue is that once its stuck down its best not to peel it off as it doesn't stick as well the second time.

    Again, personal preference that I don't like mouse mats too thick as sometimes I slip off the mat mid fight and its easier with a flat mat to slide back on instead of lifting. That's just me though

    Thanks! I will probably visit local store and see what i can get there as its impossible to buy anything not else than casual stuff in this stupid country, same with keyboards as i'm looking to get new one.

    About Naga, everyone should try this mouse before buying. Its very different than any other mouse available right now. Also if you are looking to buy the old one (not hex) you have to know that its almost impossible to use more than first 6 buttons (1-6).

    Mousepad? Just a notebook or piece of paper has worked wonders for me.. You can write tactics and taxes on it and replace it easily =)

    I've never saw the need to invest that much for a mousepad. =/

    I have to agree Blackspear, but the 7-12 keys are good for putting useless macros and mount keys on, or just very rarely used keys.
    Although I think the Hex one is just abit better then the naga Epic, and I have used both extensively.

    Sounds like you've never continuously used a good mousepad. Saying that, the one I have (the boogiebug) is only £15. Not really that much of an investment.

    Just to add I use the old non hex naga, I wouldn't say 1-6 are only ones you will use- I've had it since swtor and I can safety say for both that and Tera I've used all keys.

    It really depends how big your thumb is I guess :p you get used to it imo and I couldn't play a game without once since I got it. It really does improve your play if mmo's is your thing.

    It does take a while getting used to, I remember it taking a couple of weeks before I felt comfortable not mis-pressing. You can train your thumb for the bottom six also, I bound them to important keys and forced my self to use them at the start :p
