5 Must-Have MMO Gamer Accessories
If you’re seriously in MMO and MMORPG gaming chances are you need some new accessories. There are all sorts of accessories and gadgets related to MMO games available on the market, keyboards, mice, headsets… even cup warmers!
MMORPGs and MMO gaming can be a full-time job where you spend hours or even days without getting some rest. If you spend so many hours, why not try making the best out of it by using some proper MMORPG gaming equipment?
Today we’ll be checking out some MMORPG accessories. I’ve used and tested a lot of gaming accessories in my 20 years of gaming, so I will suggest you only what truly satisfied me and has a reasonable price tag.
Chances are you’ll be touching the mouse more than anything else in your usual MMO gaming day. There are plenty of options in gaming mice, but I choose the Logitech G500 Programmable Gaming Mouse. The Logitech G500 provides unparalleled precision, control, and comfort. It offers a gaming-grade laser that allows for smooth precision at any hand speed. Onboard memory lets you take your settings for your favorite titles wherever you go – with no added software. The Logitech G500 offers 10 programmable buttons and On-the-fly adjustable DPI controller that gives you the right level of precision for any game scenario in any game you play.
A lot of people ask me why i not choose a Razer Mouse like Naga or Death Adder. The first thing I check on a mouse is the grip and build quality. unfortunately I was not very satisfied with the Razer mice for my MMO gaming needs as they feel very “plastic” for my tastes.
Keyboard is really important for your gaming. Classic 10$ can do the job, but once you’ve tried a mechanical keyboard there is no turning back. Just like MMO Gaming Mice, there are plenty of mechanical gaming keyboards priced at $100-$150. My Keyboard of choice is the Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2013 Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard .
The Razer Blackwidow is a full-sized backlit mechanical keyboard with 5 additional Macro keys, a USB Passthrough and Audio in-out jacks for all of you playing in Net Cafes and Lan Parties. Great keyboard overall, been very satisfied with it.
Gaming Headsets are usually hit or miss. They have beautiful designs but rarely does their sound justify their cost. If you own a descent sound card, want the best sound you can have and price is not an issue then the $250 Sennheiser PC 360 Headset for Pro Gaming is your headset of choice. But I try to make this list a little more affordable since there is a chance you’ll be buying many of these accessories together and I will suggest the Razer Kraken Pro Analog Gaming Headset instead. The Kraken is the most comfortable headset I have ever tried, allowing me to wear them for many hours when playing MMOs without the slightest discomfort. They cost $76 on Amazon and it’s the coolest looking headset ever created. Even DJs wear them cause of their looks!
A lot of people believe that a mouse pad is not needed. If you’re a serious MMO gamer you need one and it must be big. My mouse-pad choice comes from Steelseries and is the SteelSeries QcK Heavy Gaming Mouse Pad. This XXL Sized cloth mouse pad is ideal for many hours of MMORPG or competitive gaming. With the use of high quality cloth material, an optimized texture which guarantees both smoothness and glide and a specially designed non-slip rubber base this mouse pad blows away the competition and is a great choice not only for the hardcore gamer but also for graphic designers and others who use their mouse for extended periods of time. The SteelSeries QcK is compatible with all types of mice and is has great value for the money.
I know that summer is coming soon but the most important MMO Gamer Accessory is the USB Cup Warmer. All these cold MMO gaming nights and 5 hour raids. Why get up and make new coffee when you can use a cup warmer and always keep your coffee warm?
