It is up to you, oh great citizens of the 'hoof, to help your damsel in distress. For I love healing and melting face a great deal, and your heroine has very small hands and is prevented from towering over the keyboard like Abraham Lincoln. I should preface this by saying that I use ESDF for movement and WR are for strafing. I'm probably unwilling to give up my keyboard turn SF keys, but if you can make an argument for it I would consider it (and be eternally grateful.)
Here is what my current discipline key-binds look like:
What I like about this setup is that all of my healing spells are accessable with my pinky and index fingers; pinky gets Greater Heal, Prayer of Healing, all the way down to Renew and Prayer of Mending while the index finger is allowed to smash Heal into oblivion.
But oh Ephie, Queen of Stormwind, what happens when you must dispense justice upon the unwashed masses and wash them in the canals of your great city?
Great question! I used to use the QAZ keys and their shift variants for shadow spells, but I have come to delight in healing spells taking that location. Thus the dilemma: where should your humbolt squidbringer put the face-melting?
Options I am considering to allow both healing and face melting at the same time:
a) I could use RDFG for movement, but that makes the shift bar inaccessable, thus creating the same problem anew. My mouse is one of those mice that has a ton of buttons on it, but over the years only the Power Word Shield button still works.
b) I have a fancy mouse that has lots of buttons, most of which don't work anymore (scrollwheel, for instance; the side buttons occasionally work.) Should I get clique and furiously bind my heals to a dying mouse? I'm assuming left click could be heal, right click could be flash heal, and so on and so on--I might be able to fit them all on a 7 button mouse, but in doing so would sacrifice convenient auto-run and mounting macros.
c) Use complicated macros with conditionals from hell that cast both healing spells and damage spells. This option is great because it lets me control every spell I like casting from QAZ G but the catch here is that I have to rely on rock-hard conditionals. I could see these macros fouling up if I have an enemy targeted while my mouse isn't hovering over anything and I want to cast a heal on myself, for instance. So if anyone knows any super awesome conditional macros that will never leave me in a bind, please share them!
Unfortunately alt and control buttons are fairly uncomfortable for me. : S
