I can press any button I need instantly, so not really.
I bind everything around WASD. I can't reach farther than g or t on my keyboard with my left hand :D

Maybe that's why I'm still kindof sucky as a player ... I don't have key bindings but for the numbers for my action bar :0. In fact I don't even know how to set them up other than in the action bars lol. Granted I've only been playing off and on for less then a year of actual play time so there's that too, added to the fact that this is really the only game I play at all Hmmm ... oh well :D I play for fun not for anyone else and I don't do many dungeons, raids or PvP so it doesn't effect many others :D.

actually I do the same, I was looking for a number set up, I didn't expect so many people to use alphabetical bindings for their abilities. Dx I guess it makes sense to do it that way since there are several buttons to push as a ret but it's not how I am used to playing. I may be on my own on trying to figure up the right set up for myself.

I used number bindings for much of my time during Vanilla WoW. Binding them to letters are much easier to access. I still use number bindings (1-4) for my healing spells because they are still easy to reach--although I mostly just use 1 & 2 because the other heals are too slow and everybody can interrupt and silence these days. I still sometimes change a keybinding here and there to find the best setup for me.

Considering I hit 2k and got my gear in season 3 as ret, and a few times after that in seasons 6 and 7, I think my keybindings work just fine. If you think they fail so much, feel free to post "pro" keybindings instead of just trolling everyone with a snide remark.

This. I really don't see outside of getting some retarded 18 button mouse how you can really make them insanely better >.>

Everything I have is all within 1 or 2 keys of ESDF and is instantly accessible. Anything that's instant still allows me to move while using it. What else do you really need?

I use Bartender and Clique, and my default movement keys are ASDF. Mouselook inverted.

1: Judgement/startattack macro
2: Crusader Strike/startattack macro
3: Templar's Verdict/startattack macro
4: Hammer of Justice
5. Avenging Wrath
6: not used
7/Q: Exorcism
8/X: Divine Shield
9/V: Hammer of Wrath
0/Mouse3: Rebuke
-/E: Repentance mouseover macro
=/W: Divine Storm/startattack macro

Mouse1+Clique: Flash of Light
Mouse2+Clique: Holy Light
Mouse3+Clique: Word of Glory
Mouse4: Divine Light
Mouse5: Flash of Light

Shift+1: Zealotry
Shift+2: Divine Protection
Shift+3: Consecration
Shift+4: Holy Wrath
Shift+5: Warstomp
Shift+6: Holy Light
Shift+7/Shift+Q: Divine Plea
Shift+8/Shift+X: Lay Hands
Shift+9/Shift+V: Cleanse
Shift+0/Shift+Mouse3: Hand of Freedom
Shift+-/Shift+E: Word of Glory
Shift+=/Shift+W: trinket
Shift+R: trinket
Shift+T: /castrandom mount macro

My key bindings may seem weird, but look at your keyboard. They are all either on the mouse, or on the left side of the keyboard within easy reach of fingers that rest on ASDF. It works for me. I click buffs, pots, tradeskills, and noncombat macros.
