This is one of the more complicated profiles to get working since it requires you to open your mce to customize several things plus you need to bind your WoW profile correctly.

For this MCE to work you need to correctly bind your keys in World of Warcraft. Make sure one of your sidebars is bound from 1-0, one is bound to shift 1-0, and another is bound to ctrl 1-0. I have my gestures bound to standard bound-over keys: Q, E, R, F, and Z. If you prefer not to bind over these keys you can change what the MCE presses by opening it up and going to this section
Change the letters in the <key> tags to letters of your choiceCode:<tilt_gesture>ccw</tilt_gesture> <key>q</key> <tilt_gesture>cw</tilt_gesture> <key>e</key> <tilt_gesture>left</tilt_gesture> <key>r</key> <tilt_gesture>right</tilt_gesture> <key>f</key> <tilt_gesture>down</tilt_gesture> <key>z</key>
The chat grid allows you to have access to 9 different short comments you can say in chat while using the hydra. For an example of how this works you can check our Dota2 video here from 35-53 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jy3zQUMeSuc. This video shows a visual grid but that doesn't show in WoW since it isn't fully integrated. I left the grid showing the location of each cell so you can easily identify and replace them with whatever chat messages you like. Not only will this work for chatting to your party but also any slash commands will work as well. Here is a list of all slash commands: http://www.wowwiki.com/List_of_slash_commands
Code:<type_string>Top Left</type_string> <type_string>Top Center</type_string> <type_string>Top Right</type_string> <type_string>Center Left</type_string> <type_string>True Center</type_string> <type_string>Center Right</type_string> <type_string>Bottom Left</type_string> <type_string>Bottom Center</type_string> <type_string>Bottom Right</type_string>
Replace the text inside the type_string tag to change what each will say.
When setting up your binding for wow there are several things you need to keep in mind. Different areas of the controller have different functions due to hand limitations such as while holding left and right click you cannot use your right joystick or 2/4 buttons. I'll go over the optimal type of ablilites for each ability slot.
Trigger/bumper: Instant cast skills you commonly use. Example: Moonfire and Insect Swarm
Joystick: Most of your ability arsenal, try to keep them in locations you would remember. Example: Wrath left on the joystick and Starfire right on the joystick to match the eclipse meter gained.
2/4: Less commonly used abilites than your joystick go here, mid range cooldowns which you use constantly work nicely. Example: Nature's Wrath and Starfall
Trigger/Bumper: This are your modifiers to alternate the abilities on your right hand, try to keep similar typed spells in each modifier group to keep it more simple. Trigger is easier to hold than bumper so keep your more commonly used spells there. Example: AoE spells on trigger/shift modifier, rarely used spells on bumper/ctrl modifier.
1/2: These are the least accessible ability slots so out of combat abilities work best. Example: Resurrection, various buffs, mount, professions, non-combat pets, various useless items
Gestures: These are much more of a wildcard but can be either treated as a unique group of binds or additional key for each modifier group. Example: Crowd control bound to trigger/shift gestures and shape-shift forms bound to bumper/ctrl gestures.
This feature can seem like a hindrance at first but with practice is one of the most effective ways to navigate the world. The most important thing is the position of your hydra base. 10-22 in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rF9r7...eature=related gives a good description of how to make sure your base is properly oriented. If this is done incorrectly your camera will slowly spin one direction or the other. If your screen looks down or up you should go into your MotionCreator and click on edit, prefrences, then calibrate, and follow the instructions on the screen. I strongly suggest flying around for a while to get used to this before diving into a dungeon or battleground.

In the video for this MCE I used Bartender, http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/bartender4, to keep everything visually simple. The center buttons are my primary 1-0 keys, the left center are my shift + 1-0, and the right center are ctrl + 1-0. The far right are my gesture bindings. With Bartender you can configure it to replace your center bar with your shift/ctrl modified bars while the modifiers are held. I also have my bottom center bar replaced by my gestures while each modifier is held.
Thanks for reading. Any feedback or comments would be greatly appreciated.
