What are your PVP Key Binds?

90 Human Death Knight
I don't post much or at all for that matter but I figured it would be nice to throw up a thread where people not so knowledgeable about PVP can look and take that next step. I found it really easy to look at key binds when I first started out to help me determine what abilities were some what priority and what ones I can maybe do without. Not saying I know all about PVP or DK's for that matter but I do know the class pretty damn well since I have been playing it for 3 years non stop pretty much. So if you have a question I would be happy to answer it as best I can. I use a lot of macros and !@#$ too but im not going to post those cause that would take to long. Enjoy.

I have way too many binds.

My left hand plays my DKs, my right hand plays my paladin. It's one big complicated mess.

I tinker with these frequently, and once mop comes out I think I may begin to use more Shift + Naga binds.

Edit: I don't know if this may help other people, or if it will even get read (lol prolly won't) but since I would honestly really like to see people on coilfang improve their play in pvp, here's some rules that I live by in my keybinds, that have helped me to improve my bindings. For one, anything that is a "rotation" spell or used frequently must be easily accessible. To be specific, these spells are ones with little to no CD, so stuff like power word shield, charge, chimera shot, steady shot etc. These should go around your movement keys and good binds are often 1234 QEFG Etc. Mouse wheel and Mouse Button for some of these can also be good options. For there, expand further out to your bigger cds. You still want a comfortable binding for these, but they don't need to take up a primary bind space if their cooldown is something like 3-6 minutes. I like to use Shift binds for these spells as shift is very comfortable to me. Do not keybind anything to a key that requires you to pick up your right hand (assuming you're right handed) off your mouse to reach. Also, consider using and keybinding arena 123 macros for targetting and focus, once u get used to them they're very very helpful.
