So I want to buy new mouse mostly for Diablo 3 (gonna play WoW and some other games with it ofc).
I've read quite many topics about it but still can't decide which one I should get. I like steelseries mice, both sensei and diablo 3 version of xai (they say it has lifespan of 10 million clicks but it kinda sounds like some cheap advertising to me).
What's your thoughts? Which mouse will be most optimal for playing Diablo? Or maybe mouse doesn't matter that much (yea I have some extra $ to spend)?
looks like g400 is newer and cheaper (the demand for mx518 has always been high because of it's reputation). I got my 518 for $37 years ago, no clue why amazon lists it for $99, unless it's because the demand for the original is higher *shrug*. They really are the same mouse though, theres nothing about the g400 that makes it worth less than the 518
I own a Razer Naga and I love it. It's not steelseries though.
I have been playing the beta with the Naga and it works great. but I prefer to be able to use my mouse for all my skills and opening menus and everything else. The only think I have not been able to figure out is how to incorporate the shift key (makes you stand still and cast) which is my only issue so far. I have a lap top and I find keeping my hand on there in the same position for a long time is not comfortable.
Maybe you have no interest but if your looking for minimal keyboard usage then a Naga would work well I think.
I can't offer my opinion on others as I don't have to much experience with them. I have had a couple Logitech ones prior and I didn't have problems with them.
Not sure I understood the last part: are you saying you don't have much to spend? If that is the case I would agree with Karsen88 about Logitech having some decent stuff for a good price.

I have a DeathAdder, which I have had 0 problems with but tbh what Karsen has said is true. You might aswell get the logitech and save yourself a few bucks, its a great mouse.
Diablo 3 require very FEW key binds, so wouldn't really worry about that aspect at least.
It's not a twitch shooter either, so yeah..don't really need to worry that much about getting 12 million DPI.
Logitech mx518 is awesome, cheap and durable.
If you WANT to blow some cash to buy something flashy there is always the Diablo 3 mouse, or Razer Naga Hex.
Razor is for the lil kids that get impressed by shiny lights.

For point and click games, you want a mouse that is lightweight, not too big, with little to no extra buttons, and a simple, ambidextrous shape. The button should be easy to press, with a short acctuation point.
Don't make the mistake of going with big, heavy, 10 buttons so-called "gaming mice", you'll only hurt yourself after hours of D3 sessions.
I'm using Steelseries Kinzu v2 Pro Edition, I've tried a bunch and this is easily the best for me. (Pro Ed= Omron switches, which are the best button switches available).
My last logitech mouse lasted one year (it wasn't a highly expensive one, it was a g3, and yeah it was some years ago). My current deathadder razer mouse (bought used at 10E) still work after 2 years of use. Logitech hardware sometimes use "cheap" components on non high-end stuff, so take care (they are not the only ones...)
My advice : buy the one that fits well your hand, and if you can try them in store (you won't use them with a game but you will have the feeling). And don't buy an ultra expensive one, you will always regret it when it will break:p
Just got my SteelSeries D3 mouse and I have to say that it is really badass. Haven't used the others mentioned above, so I can't really compare, but there's my two cents.

i would choose my own religion and worship my own spirit, but if he ever preached to me i wouldn't want to hear it. i'd drop him, a forgotten god, languishing in shame; and then if i hit stormy seas, i'd have myself to blame.
I'm currently using the G500 (logitech) which I bought especially as an overall gaming mouse with a focus on WoW and Arena play.
I think it will outperform the G400 and the mx518 not necessarily in their robust simple design and their durability, but in their lack in their versatility.
The G500 offers a solid design - with a reinforced cable (had some issues with my mice before) - but with some minor flaws regarding its surface and coating.
With its 10 freely programmable macro-buttons - which is more than most other mice offer - I am able to play RPGs (Skyrim, WoW, DragonAge), Action (GTA, Saints Row, Torchlight) as well as (tactical) shooters like BF3 without a problem and like every other (gaming) mouse it is able to do fair office work, with a bonus in its free-scroll function on the wheel (i love it).
Its price lays currently at ~40€ (~53$) at amazon which sounds absolutely fair for an upper class gaming mouse, and puts it between the price level of the mx518 and the g400.
