Is keyboard turning really all that bad?

Topic title. Is it really that bad? Using WASD or the arrows is really a crime worthy of a raid-kick or some similar level of retribution? Is the mouse REALLY that superior and essential?

Keyboard turning is the WoW equivalent of Satan Worshipping

Raiding, usually not. PvP, yeah.

It won't get you booted from a Raid or anything, it's just that some people who do it think it makes them better than you at least PVP wise anyway, and who cares about PvP?

I don't, but it doesn't make much sense to me how mouse-turning is even 'better'. I mean, you don't free up any keys unless you have some absurd spell rotation (1-= should be enough for any spell rotation) and the only advantage you get is some minor turn speed.

That "minor turn speed" can be the difference between life and death.

if you can learn and adapt to a different play style then the usual "play like this it make you good" style then by all means go for it.

in PVP a mouse is far superior. in a raid it's really not that big of a deal i raided Vanilla to firelands without a mouse. using my arrow keys to play.

I got 3 bad touches before I got my first good touch. I haven't gotten a single bad touch since and I spent 2 hours trying for one tonight.
