MMO games like World of Warcraft have been around for some time now, and manufacturers have created dedicated MMO mice with a ton of side buttons for you to have many hotkeys right at the tip of your thumb for quick casting. When shopping for the best MMO mouse, you need to account for the build quality, the shape of the mouse, and how many different inputs you can register using it.

We've tested over 240 mice, and these are our recommendations for the best MMO gaming mice. Check out our picks for the best gaming mice, the best wireless gaming mice, and the best FPS mice.


  1. Best Wired Mouse For MMOs: Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE

    9.0
    Video Games (MMO)
    Connectivity Wired
    Type
    Standard

    The best MMO mouse for gaming with a wired connection that we've tested is the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE. Its solid-feeling body features side grips and a pinky rest for extra comfort during those marathon gaming sessions. It also has a 12-button side panel, which you can slide forwards or backward to best suit your hand size and grip style. 

    Using Corsair's iCUE software, you can adjust the set CPI in increments of one for very precise control over your sensitivity settings. You can also use the software to customize the four independent RGB zones on the mouse and save all your settings to its onboard memory to carry across devices. Its low click latency means games should feel responsive, and its sensor shouldn't track unintentional cursor movements while you reposition the mouse, thanks to its low lift-off distance.

    Despite the high quality of its cable, it's relatively stiff and may drag or get caught on desks. Also, because of its size, it isn't well-suited for small hands using a fingertip grip, while extra-large hands may find it too short to use comfortably with a palm grip. With that said, it's an excellent option for an MMO mouse, and it's one of the best wired mice we've tested.

  2. More Versatile Alternative: Razer Naga Trinity

    Connectivity Wired
    Type
    Standard

    If you play a variety of different game genres, check out the Razer Naga Trinity. Although it doesn't feel as well-built or have a sliding side panel to fit your hand size like the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE, it has three swappable side panels with different button layouts to best suit the game you're playing. It also has more programmable inputs. You can reprogram all buttons and assign a HyperShift button to enable a second layer of commands. It also has even lower click latency and is more than capable of delivering that responsive feeling if, in addition to MMO games, you also play rhythm games, twitch shooters, or any other game where every frame counts. Unfortunately, its companion software isn't compatible with macOS, and its sensor isn't as consistent. Also, it isn't suitable for users with small hands due to its bulky body.

    If you're looking for an MMO mouse that feels sturdier and has a side panel you can slide forwards or backward to suit your grip, go with the Corsair, but if you want a versatile mouse with swappable button panels and lower click latency, get the Razer.

  3. Best Wireless MMO Mouse: Razer Naga Pro

    8.9
    Video Games (MMO)
    Connectivity Wireless
    Type
    Standard

    In the wireless category, the best MMO gaming mouse we've tested is the Razer Naga Pro. This extremely versatile option features three swappable side panels with a 2, 6, or 12-button layout, so you can choose the best button layout for whatever game you're playing. Despite the interchangeable panels, it feels very well-built and has a pinky rest for extra comfort.

    It connects wirelessly with a dedicated USB receiver, which you can store inside the mouse when not in use. Its click latency is very low, meaning games will feel responsive. It has three independent RGB zones you can customize using the Razer Synapse 3 software, which allows you to reprogram buttons and fine-tune sensor settings as well. The software also lets you set up the mouse's onboard memory, so you can save your settings and carry them with you across devices.

    Unfortunately, due to its size, it's not comfortable to use for users with small hands. Also, it has a slightly higher lift-off distance than some other MMO offerings, so it's more likely to track unintended cursor movements if you lift your mouse frequently to reposition it. With that said, it's a very versatile mouse that works well across a variety of gaming genres.

  4. Best Lightweight MMO Mouse: Razer Naga X

    8.5
    Video Games (MMO)
    Connectivity Wired
    Type
    Standard

    The best lightweight MMO mouse that we've tested in the Razer Naga X. It's much lighter than the majority of MMO mice we've tested, and it feels very well-built and comfortable to use during those long gaming sessions. Its 12 side buttons are easy to reach for medium or large hands, and you can use Razer Synapse 3 to easily reprogram all of the buttons to best suit your gaming needs.

    It has one RGB zone that lights up through the scroll wheel and side buttons, which you can customize with the software to compliment your set-up's aesthetic. It has high-quality feet for a smooth gliding experience on mousepads or desks. Also, its high-quality cable is flexible and lightweight, so this is a great option for those looking for the reliability of a wired connection but are often disappointed by how stiff most MMO mouse cables are. Its click latency is very low, making it great for fast-paced games.

    Unfortunately, it isn't suitable for users with small hands as it's a bit bulky. It also has a higher lift-off distance than some other MMO offerings, so the sensor is more likely to detect unintentional movement if you're a player who frequently lifts your mouse to reposition it. Unlike other mice in the Naga lineup, its scroll wheel lacks L/R tilt functions, which might be a dealbreaker for some. All in all, it's a great option if you're looking for a lightweight MMO mouse.

  5. Best Budget MMO Mouse: Logitech G600 MMO Gaming

    8.9
    Video Games (MMO)
    Connectivity Wired
    Type
    Standard

    The best budget MMO gaming mouse we've tested is the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming mouse. Like many other MMO mice, the G600 has 12-programmable buttons on the left side, but its main feature is the third click button, under the ring finger, that acts as a dedicated G-Shift button to access a second layer of commands for as long as you press it. You can use the Logitech G HUB software to assign custom settings to one of three profiles that you can store on the mouse's onboard memory, and the software is compatible with both Windows and macOS.

    It has impressively low click latency for its price point, so you won't have to worry about input lag holding you back. The sensor has virtually no variation, and it doesn't perceptibly undershoot or overshoot the set CPI, so you can be sure your movements are consistent whether you're just grinding or taking down an endgame world boss. Also, its low lift-off distance means the sensor won't track unintentional cursor movements as you reposition your mouse.

    Unfortunately, it's a heavy and bulky mouse, so users with smaller hands will have difficulty reaching the third click button and some side buttons. It's also wired-only, and the included braided cable isn't very flexible and retains kinks from the packaging, which can cause drag. However, if you're looking for a solid-feeling and high-performing mouse with a budget in mind, this is the best budget MMO mouse that we've tested.

Notable Mentions

  • Corsair SCIMITAR PRO RGB: The Corsair SCIMITAR PRO RGB is the predecessor to the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE. It has a narrower CPI range and more variation between fast and slow movements, but it has a marginally better click latency. However, its recent lack of availability at the time of writing might make it more difficult to find. See our review
  • ASUS ROG Spatha X: The ASUS ROG Spatha X is an excellent alternative to the Razer Naga Pro. Its sensor is much more consistent, and it's a good alternative if you prefer a bulkier mouse. However, it's much heavier, and it doesn't have as many programmable inputs as the Razer. See our review
  • Redragon M908: The Redragon M908 is a great budget MMO mouse with a very wide CPI range, but its shape is a bit awkward to hold. Also, it has half as many programmable inputs as the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming mouse. See our review
  • Redragon M913 Impact Elite: The Redragon M913 Impact Elite is an excellent MMO mouse if you're on a budget. It's a bit more expensive than the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming, but you can use it wirelessly via its USB receiver. However, the click latency is high for gaming. See our review
  • Havit HV-MS735: The Havit HV-MS735 is a very good budget MMO mouse that's narrower than the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming, but it doesn't have a ring finger button for additional inputs. It also has a higher click latency, and it may be hard to find in stock. See our review
  • Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED: The Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED is an excellent wireless MMO mouse with a more consistent CPI than the Razer Naga Pro, but it only has six side buttons and fewer programmable inputs. See our review
  • Razer Basilisk V3: The Razer Basilisk V3 is a versatile, wired MMO gaming mouse with great performance and a scroll wheel that you can set to automatically switch between notched and free-scrolling modes. However, it doesn't have a 12-button side panel like the Corsair SCIMITAR RGB ELITE. See our review
  • EVGA X17: The EVGA X17 is a wired-only MMO gaming mouse featuring a very low lift-off distance and an adjustable polling rate that maxes out at 8000Hz. However, it doesn't have a 12-button side panel like the Logitech G600 MMO Gaming, and the sensor on our unit was very inconsistent and often undershot the set CPI. See our review

All Reviews

Our recommendations above are what we think are currently the best MMO mice for most people. We factor in the price (a cheaper mouse wins over a pricier one if the difference isn't worth it), feedback from our visitors, and availability (no mice that are difficult to find or almost out of stock everywhere).

If you would like to do the work of choosing yourself, here is the list of all our reviews of MMO mice. Be careful not to get too caught up in the details. While no mouse is perfect for every use, most mice are great enough to please almost everyone, and the differences are often not noticeable unless you really look for them.
