I needed two things:

  1. I should never HAVE to look down to see what keys I’m hitting.
  2. Most spells I use need to be readily at hand.

So I changed up my keybindings, used more mouse for movement, and for my Priest it worked fine.  Then I leveled my Warrior and found it was vastly inadequate.
