Which keys are you using for class specials?

So not too long ago a newb asked me which keys should he use for class specials, and I said it's up to him, whatever he feels comfortable with. Aaaand I got the idea for this thread. Maybe there should be tips for new players for key configuration somewhere in the game or here on the forums.

Basically just say what you use for class special 1 and 2, perhaps tell why you chose those keys and are there any disadvantages for using those keys in any situations. Do you change your binds for different classes?

Then here I go: I use "v" for class special 1, and "b" for class special 2.
Reasons: Didn't really think about it, those buttons are not bound by default (if I'm not mistaken), and it's also because I started with clonetrooper, actually I think I started with soldier and ET but you don't use class special with them (though you can switch on/off the rally effect as soldier). So if I remember correctly, clone was my first class which required me to bind the class special 1. "v" felt totally comfortable for that. Because "b" is next to it I bound that as class special 2. I find them ok to use. The only exceptions are using wrist blaster with mando and tracking darts with bh. (I'm more comfortable with poison darts for v) "b" feels far for those things. However for using slap, I'm totally fine with "b".
I never change my keyboard configuration, cba with it.

Q for special 1, E for special 2, L for class configuration, and used to use B for weapon mode back when weapon mode/saber style weren't tied to the same hotkey.

Z and X for Class Special 1 and 2.
Used to have weapon mode in < (left of Z on my keyboard)
Crouch in C, reload in F.
No special advantages really. Z and X are quite easy and fast to press and you rarely have to use them when moving so it doesn't matter how you fingers are. All that matters is that you can hit it fast. I usually use my thumb.

1 for class special 1 and E for class special 2 i originally had them set to Q and E respectively but found it more important to bind push to Q since i support jedi/sith a lot

my binds vary a bit depending on class and build I play

as jedi/sith
mouse 3 = pull (a lot easier to aim)
ctrl = class special 2
f = speed/lighting
3 = seeing
x = mindtrick
r = push

Basic:
c = crouch
e = use
< = weapon mode switch/saber style

when I use to gunner I switch mouse 3 to class special 2, while it is also in ctrl. But if I play hero I have dash on alt and mouse3, because then I can dash while holding walk and also be blasting at the same time, so it is the only smart place to bind it (except if you use mouse3 with your middle finger, but I find that awkward).

also the idiot binds aka taunts:
i = taunt
j = gloat
k = flourish


Btw kudos to helix for standing with me and also having reload on Q! (and class config on L). I remember when I started mb2 the first time and I had binded R as my push in jka so I couldn't use it. Q was the next option.

Wasd Vermin.

Numpad 4 and 7 for the specials.
Numpad 5 for reload.

And arrow keys for direction. As it should be. As it was. As it will be again once the extermination has begun.
