For some reason, the devs at WOW have decided that a warrior needs 20 action buttons. I just don't understand.  Even real swordsman limit their different strikes and blocks and parries.

So, to answer your questions, yes, I believe you need keybinding (macros) in order to maximize your DPS output as a melee, especially warriors.

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

 Mouse clicking is bad do not do it, sit down force your body to learn the muscle mmory of keybinding.  It isn't that hard.  Bind everything 1-5. ctrl 1-5. shift 1-5 and if you need more, R, F,C and their variants.  Those are the only keybinds I have ever used and this coming from someone who 5 years ago was a clicker.  Trust me, you'll thank me later.  Clicking is for noobs!

Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

no matter what class i play i keybind important offensive skills on 1-6, R,F,C,V (the closest to WASD) I never take my hand away from WASD and i reach those buttons very easily and fast. Everything else i activate with mouse clicks like buffs, debuffs, and the rest of less important skills.

I stopped keybinding to my mouse side buttons because its just annoying as shit trying to spin the camera fast and hitting the wrong button on the mouse. I only use keyboards now the way i mentioned and its easy and fun to me.

I suggest you at least keybind a few buttons (like i did). As a casual player that likes some competition here and there that works pretty well for me.
