The MMO mouse of choice gets a cataclysmic makeover.
The ascension of Deathwing (i.e. the release of Cataclysm) last year also heralded the release of the Razer Naga Molten Special Edition mouse as well. As with the release of any MMO, it takes some time for things to get sorted, the excitement to get satiated and everyday life play to get back to normal. And so today I’ll be looking at the Razer Naga Molten Special Edition MMO gaming mouse.
The Molten SE is basically the regular Naga MMO mouse, with a new cover and color specifically designed for the release of World of WarCraft: Cataclysm. The main palm rest area shows the Razer logo with cracked etching spread from the center towards the outer edges. The LED color is fixed, with deep red hues for the scroll wheel and the side buttons as well as the edges of the etched-in cracks, while the main Razer logo starts out with a dull orange glow. The whole look of the mouse is very cool, especially the pulsating light on the main palm rest.
The rest of the mouse is pretty interesting, if nothing else, to look at. There are 12 numeric keys on the left side, where the usual Forwards & Backwards buttons usually are on regular mice. The latter two buttons are now located on the top left of the left-click button. Of course, each of these keys can be customized to whatever you like as multiple profiles can be set from the main driver software. To right side is the finger-rest area which is glossy, unlike the rest of the mouse which has a matt (and slightly rubberized) finish on top.
