So I got a new wired Xbox 360 controller for Christmas.
I got it because I'm too dumb/lazy to keep a charged set of batteries in my wireless controller. With the number of hours I sit playing Halo3 and Mass Effect, I was going through batteries too quickly.
Having a wired 360 controller also gave me the opportunity to try out Xfire and Switchblade to play World of Warcraft with my 360 controller.
It sure is interesting...
Takes a bit to get used to, but I've found the default controlls are the best.
A,X,B,Y are your buttons for action bar keys 1-4. You can then press and hold the right and left trigger to get action bar slots 5-8 and 9-12. Takes a little getting used to, but it works.
The left bumper is the same as a left click, and the right bumper the same as a right click.
You tab target by clicking down the left stick, and jump by clicking down the right stick.
The left stick moves you forward and backwards as well as strafes. The right stick controls the cursor. In order to move the camera, you have to hold down the right bumper and then use the right stick.
I've found you need to turn auto-loot on so that you just have to right click (right bumper) once on a corpse to loot it.
I haven't touched my level 70 toon nor have I done any PvP, dungeons, or raiding... but playing a few of my lower level alts using Switchblade is a blast.
It completely changed the "feel" of the game. For anyone who is bored of WoW but just can't stop playing and enjoys leveling up an alt, I'd recommend Switchblade. It's fun, it's different, and it's actually functional.
I don't know how it'd work with some classes tough. Like pet classes, you'd have to set up a button or two on your action bar to have your pet attack and/or use abilities.
Do I recommend Switchblade for "serious" WoW play? No. But for simple questing/grinding etc. it really does allow you to "kick back and put your feet up."
No, I don't work for whoever makes Switchblade and/or Xfire... just thought I'd share my experience with Switchblade and recommend it to anyone with a spare 360 controller.
Anywho... Happy New Years!
