Not enough buttons

90 Gnome Mage
1995
1 - Arcane Blast
2 - Arcane Barrage
3 - Arcane Missles
4 - Nether Tempest
5 - Arcane Power
6 - Ice Barrier
7 - Mirror Image
8 - Arcane Explosion
9 - Blink
0 - Arcane Brilliance
-/_ - Mount
+/= - Time Warp

I need buttons for Rune of Power, Polymorph, Evocation, Scorch, Invisibility, Alter Time, Frostjaw and Counterspell but I can't take anything off of my bar.

What do you guys do? How do you set up your buttons so you have everything you need?

I use addons to manage my UI.
As I got a Razer Naga,I use the Razer Naga addon,so I can use the Num buttons and F1,F2,F3...
But you can do that on Blizzard UI going to: Esc>Interface>Action Bars>Enable extra action bars.

Didn't know about enabling extra add-on bars. Probably should have learned that before level 90.

Get Bartender, then get Masque to make it a bit sexier, then get party/raid plates addon like Pitbull or XPerl(gross), and you're set for UI. If you want to, you can get a cast bar as well, like I prefer, but a lot of people can do with just the Pitbull castbar on your character plate.

Your character and target plates can also be moved to the bottom of the screen just above your skills so you don't have to look all the way to the top corner, and you keep your vision all on the same side of the screen.

Here's what I use, but honestly, set up your keybinds to what works for you:

Walk Forward - E Strafe Left - S Strafe Right - F
Jump - D Arcane Blast - Spacebar Arcane Missiles - E
Arcane Barrage - R Frost Bomb - Q Ice Ward - A
Temporal Shield/Incanter's Ward - V Frost Nova - Shift-V
Slow Fall - Ctrl-V Deep Freeze - G Arcane Explosion - Z
Spellsteal - X Cooldowns - 1-0 Healing Touch (Symbiosis) - Shift-Q
Evocation - Shift-1 Arcane Brilliance - Shift-H Mount - Shift-T
Hearth - Ctrl-T Mana Gem - T Conjure Mana Gem - !@#$f-M
Remove Curse - B Conjure Food - Ctrl-G Conjure Table - Shift-G
Use Potion - H Polymorph - C Blink - Mouse-Wheel Up
Counterspell - Mouse-Wheel Down
I'm pretty sure that's about all of them, here's a screenshot

I'd use the Naga for the extra buttons, but I have massive hands so I'd rather get a bigger mouse and have it be comfortable.

I just made due with the 12 buttons on the main bar up until now, I know that may be hard to believe. This is my first character and I'm two or three months new to the game.

At any rate, you're an idiot and I don't know why I'm explaining myself to you.

Eh, don't worry. took me probably longer to figure that out when I first started to play.

At least you ask for help, no one can blame you for asking for advice.

(And honestly if you use more than 12 spells while leveling.. beh)
