Razer Announces 'Levelled Up' Naga Mouse for MMO Gamers

By - Source: Razer | B 26 comments

One of the best-selling MMO gaming mice, the Razer Naga, gets an upgrade to its ergonomics for 2012.

Razer has announced the return of the Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse. The mouse has been updated with an anti-slip, anti-fingerprint matte finish and three interchangeable side panels for a more ergonomic gaming experience. The mouse still retains its 12-button thumb grid that is built for the MMO player. The buttons over the top of the gaming mouse have been repositioned for much easier actuation. The three interchangeable side panels have been provided to let end-users personally customize the shape of the Razer Naga to fit their hand and play-style, claw-grip or palm-grip.





Features

  • 17 MMO-optimized buttons (including 12-button thumb grid)
  • 3 interchangeable side panels
  • Razer Synapse 2.0 enabled
  • 5600dpi Razer Precision 3.5G Laser Sensor
  • 1000Hz Ultrapolling / 1ms response time
  • 200 inches per second max tracking speed
  • Zero-acoustic Ultraslick mouse feet

  

The upgraded Razer Naga is now available at RazerStore for U.S. and Europe now. It will be available worldwide by the end of Q2 2012. The new addition of the Razer Naga will be available for $79.99 dollars.

    I've found there are many different MMO playing styles.
    Some people use WASD to move, others may use arrow keys; while some offload both movement and bindings to the mouse. Sometimes people can use ctrl + number combos, (or shift + number).

    I've even seen some people who click on the little attack icons.

    As a notebook gamer, the touchpad is never far from the keyboard, so its easier to use that sometimes than take my right hand completely off the board to use the external mouse.

    I think your mileage with these kinds of mice vary from person to person. I'd certainly like an easy way to use buffs when I die, for example.. but $80 doesn't really appeal to many players.

    Most computers with right-side number pads have an abundance of keys. I don't personally gain enough to warrant the investment; but IF I had one, its undoubtedly a good mouse.

    I have this mouse. Great mouse so far. I like the ability to change between wireless and wired mode.

    Actually this one looks like the regular corded one, however it still should be great.

    I re-mapped my #1 and #4 buttons for forward/back operations which is very nice, as it doesn't have "dedicated" back and forward buttons.

    After buying my Naga for use in WoW, I couldn't see playing without it.

    It's about time they made something other than blue..
    Not hating, I love Razer, I personally own a DeathAdder and Lycosa myself, but I just don't understand why nearly all their products are blue, seeing as how they're represented by green and black.

    I'm somewhat astonished by how badly some gamers are "doing it wrong" when it comes to their controls... certainly you're right that there are some players who may use a trackpad, or manually click the spell icons, or... use their toes, or face, or other ridiculous ineffective control methods.... but, for people that are serious about their gaming peripherals, and want a good, effective, way to control champions in an MMO or MOBA, the Naga is a pretty darn good mouse.

    I picked up an M90 from corsair, the buttons were much more difficult to setup and do not change easily with different games, over all I regret not buying the razer..

    If you mean using the buttons like a "keypad" yes, 1=1 , 2=2, etc.

    i have two of these (one for my desktop at home, one for my work laptop). I seriously cannot see using another mouse. It is comfortable for long periods of time, and it has plenty of buttons. I do not play WoW anymore, but i used the ctrl and shift keys for a total of 3 full action bars bound for pvp. If you play an mmo, there really isn't another mouse worth buying.

    For non-mmo players, the buttons are great for the macros you can put together in the software. Think about all the things you do each day that are repetitive, and realize how much more efficient things can be done just by clicking a button with your thumb.

    The only thing i dislike about mine is the braided cable, it seems to kink up pretty easy.

    i bought the razer naga epic and it has all the features this mouse and can be wireless aswell. i absolutely hate this mouse. if u have a slightly larger then normal hand then your thumb is way in front of the side buttons and u can really only use 1-3 the others just get mashed since your thumbtip wont be able to bend that far. also the zero acoustic pads on the bottom are just stickers that wear out very fast, 6 months for me. they now make a horrible scraping noise. also the adhesive used on the pads will seep out around the edges collecting dust and lint. one of the pads is right around the optical sensor so if u have a pet u will get a hair stuck in there that stops the mouse from tracking until u pull out a toothpick and scrap it clean. this will then act back up weekly. also the scroll wheel is not very sturdy and mine now rocks back and forth and i fear it will be breaking very soon. considering my last mouse was one of the first optical mouses on the market and lasted me a good 15 years (and still works thankfully) i cannot reccomend this product to anyone due to its lack of quality

    this mouse line is awesome, granted i dont use it for gaming at all, i use it almost exclusively as an internet shortcut hotkeys, and believe the money is well worth it.

    i got the molten edition of this mouse( old model) and it is awesome, the best 80 bucks i ever spent, it really feels like a different mouse, and people do notice it when they sit on my pc, it moves so smooth and with 12 buttons on your right thumb and shift control and alt in your left hand that grants you access to 48 actions without moving too much, its hard to remember so many bindings but it is really comfortable once that you get use to it, trust me you will hate a regular mouse...

    "The buttons over the top of the gaming mouse have been repositioned for much easier actuation."

    LOLWUT?

    Those new button suck and is the reason I haven't bought the wireless mouse yet. There is no way it can be better to have to take your hand off the mouse to use the top two buttons. Its just fail and should be reworked.

    I almost bought this mouse but ive had so many razer mice in the past and every single one that had a laser sensor had skipping problems. Never was an issue with my original copperhead, G500 or fatal1ty mouse.

    It's all good fun until this thing develops that 2 clicks in 1 problem conveniently just a week after the warranty expires. Imho, they should make their mice at least resistant to problems like these which are common to the cheaper mice out there.

    the two buttons next to left click default to forward/back. not that it's a good place for them...

    I bought a naga epic for my work.
    I work with Indesign, Photoshop and Illustrator mostly. So it's great for shortcuts Like cpoy/cut/paste, rotate left/right, align left/center/right, save/save as, etc ...
    I also use a Logitech G13 keypad and it's 3 layout possibilities for each of the programs.
    So that's a total of 29 X 3 (G13) + 15 = 102 shortcuts. It really speeds up my work a lot ! But even with 102 shortcuts, I had to make choices, and it takes a bit of time to get used to it of course.

    So my work place really looks like a gamers basement. ^^

    Oh and btw, excellent mouse !
