Default AWSD or Mouse Move?

Just curiosity. I was a 'clicker' and moved with AWSD for a long portion of my WoW career.
Which was just fine for light PvP and PvE...

But after extensive training with some of the best PvPers on my server - I quickly hotkeyed EVERYTHING to my keyboard. I clicked like.. Two things, tops? I even bought a mouse with more buttons to hotkey things to.

Being an elitist, I call anyone who still clicks to be a total nub.. But that's not really my place. If you want to get into hardcore PvP, try out hotkeys and mouse movement sometime. It takes awhile to adjust, but I found it to be awesome!

EDIT: Some confusion as to the actual poll. To clarify, AWSD move means that you TURN with the keyboard and you do not use any hotkeys 'cept for maybe 1-9 and you click most of your abilities. Mouse Move simply means you turn with the mouse and do not click abilities.

AWSD is good enough for raiding and that's all I, try to, do. If I want PVP... I use AWSD and go play CoD 4 or TF2.

Okay. Let me rephrase a little then. Do you -turn- your character from left to right with the keyboard or the mouse?
I still strafed with the keyboard, but I didn't really strafe very much in PvP situations. As a paladin, I didn't have to.

I use a combination of both, as someone else stated. I usually use my keyboard (w) for running forward, while I use my mouse to turn. I also have a lot of things bound to my mouse as well as my keyboard. I'd say my setup is almost like playing a console game (i.e., each hand controls both movements and actions in a game. Not one or the other respectively).

I use AWSD to move. Use the mouse to turn though of course. My hot keys are pretty much set up around my AWSD. I use Bongos2 for my interface so...

I use T for stealth, SHIFT-(#) for stealth actions, Tab for Mount, (#) for my non-stealthed actions.

I do just fine in PvP with that set up.
