At this point I'm sure everyone is pretty stuck on their configuration, but I'm pretty fond of mine since it's so efficient, and I'm interested to see what other solutions people have.
My 6 skills and potions are assigned as:
Ctrl-Alt L Click
Ctrl-Alt R Click
Potion: Space bar
Move (w/o skill trigger): Scroll Wheel/3rd button Press
All buttons close together, including shift for stationary combat
Left hand never moves
No clicking the wrong skill
Eyes always on the screen, never the keyboard
Potion, the last-second lifeline, is on the biggest/easiest to press button
Works with a 2-button mouse if you forego the move-only 3rd button/scroll wheel option
Takes about half an hour to adjust to this style, upon switching from 1-2-3-4 keys
Must use Esc to skip sequences, since Space is taken by potion -- this means no skipping regular dialog (such as the ghost Cow King leading to Whimsyshire)
How about you guys? How have you greatly changed your keybindings to allow for better playability?

Mines all on my mouse :D
Razer Mamba 4G - Ftw
Right/Left click primary attacks
Wheel up - Potion
Wheel down - Inv
thumb 1 - Skill 1
thumb 2 - Skill 2
Dpi Up - Skill 3
Dpi down - Skill 4
Left hand = Snacks/Drinks ;)
And can still on the fly Dpi adjust With mouse 3 (wheel Click) + scroll Up/Down Not that i need it for D3
Personally i HATE using tha Kb for Skills with them all on the mouse i can sit back and relax :D
I'll play along.
Fingers on 1, 2, 3 (index shifts to hit 4 which is reserved for abilities not used consistently)
Pinky on tab for map
Thumb on space (force stand still)
Palm hits ctrl for items on ground
Mouse button 6 (I think) is mapped to 'Q' for potion use. Thumb naturally rests there so it's an easy to hit button.
This is what works for me, with everything easily reached.
Dude how do u use the arrow keys in a fps..... i have NEVER seen anyone use anything but w,s,a,,d, unless using a Game Kb/pad thingy.... cause these keys are closer to far more buttons.... using the arrows keys just sounds weird.... plus wouldnt u have to have ur KB and mouse like twice as far apart as normal or do u play with ur 2 hands like right next to each other?
"Close all windows" in the keybindings is what you are looking for. It skips cutscenes, dialogs etc. I bind it on "mousewheel up" and i roll it like a pro when a video cutscene is incoming.
Skills 1-4 are WASD on my setting. Find it ok to play with.

W for Walk (Dual bind: Mouse wheel scroll)
Spacebar remains the same
Z,X (previously, 3 and 4) are also dual-bound to the 2 side buttons on my mouse, so i can activate those abilities with either hand.
Potion is middle mouse button pressed down
