SteelSeries Guild Wars 2 Gaming Mouse Review

productEvery good dragon hunter needs a finely crafted weapon. While it may not be forged from steel, the SteelSeries Guild Wars 2 Mouse is a well-balanced, ambidextrous device sheathed in quality materials. It also happens to be packing the same innards as the SteelSeries Sensei [RAW], a mouse with an excellent blend of performance, comfort, and cost. 



Guild Wars® 2 Mouse


The Guild Wars® 2 Mouse features the recognized red, white and dragon design synonymous with the game. Its ambidextrous shape has a rubberized, hand-sweat resistant feel, which allows for exceptional grip and comfort during long battles. Red illumination and up to 4 different levels of pulsation options can be adjusted at the scroll wheel, CPI toggle light and at the Guild Wars 2 logo. With best-in-class hardware like Omron switches, a pro-grade laser sensor ranging up to 5,700 CPI, the Guild Wars® 2 Mouse is designed to deliver players the best in gaming performance. Its 7 programmable buttons can be completely customized with SteelSeries Engine software, which provides users with the ability to create macros, utilize pre-defined profiles for Guild Wars 2 as well as create and store an unlimited amount of profiles.

Guild Wars 2 Gaming Mouse

For generations, war and chaos raged across the land of Tyria. Five great races competed and warred against each other, struggling to tip the balance of power in their favor. Then the dragons woke.

Now heroes from the five races must set aside ancient rivalries and stand together against their common enemies. Magic, technology, and cold steel will determine the ultimate fate of the world. Arm yourself with the mouse that was built to guide and fight with you through your journey.


Advanced Macros

Thanks to the support of the SteelSeries Engine software, you can record even extremely long and advanced macros to the Guild Wars 2 Gaming Mouse. The macros can not only be layered and can include keystrokes and precise timing, but they can span across your peripherals allowing you to have a mouse button assigned to perform keyboard strokes and mouse clicks in the same macro. How you will decide to use this advanced feature is up to you (choose your configurations wisely and adhere to any rules that you may need to abide by during gameplay); we are only presenting you with the capabilities for endless possibilities.


Light 'Em Up

The red LED illumination is capable of several modes of operation including: solid, slow, medium, and fast pulse. You can also vary the intensity of the illumination between low, medium, and high. For those of you who don’t like glowing shiny stuff on your desktop, you can completely switch off all illumination.

It also brings a very real benefit to users who utilize multiple profiles: by giving them different levels of brightness, you can quickly switch between profiles and also ways know which profile is active.


Plug, Play, Win

There’s no need to install software of any kind in order to use the Guild Wars 2 Gaming Mouse. It is completely capable of operating flawlessly with default settings. SteelSeries Engine enhances the Guild Wars 2 Gaming Mouse with advanced customization options like CPI settings, programmable buttons, LED intensity, and lighting modes.
