I'm left handed and I use QWER.
Have always used WASD with shooters.
I find it more comfortable because they keyboard is off to the right out of my way and I get more room for my mouse.

Other lefties actually use the right side of the keyboard? wtf?

The issue is that binding is broken; whether or not you understand where I put my hands is a whole other story

My friend uses wasd to Pan camera, 1-4 for skills, and q,e,r for item actives, and z,x for summoner spells. Don't ask me how he does it, but the keybindings work. Maybe there's just something special about the ";" key. Submit a bug report.

I am somewhat confused by this thread.
Awesome! You are better lefties than I. I couldn't play properly even if my life depended on it.

I'm glad no one used lefty mice when I was little or I'd have this problem now

Thanks for the report, it brought this bug back up to the forefront. A while back, I did some work to let players bind any key to any spell, but I guess the semicolon (and I think comma) cases got missed.

But never say we hate left handed players - I made the numpad keys bindable just for you guys

Lefty here, I use right hand on the mouse + QWER.
Honestly it's better because your hotkeys hand needs to be a lot faster than your mouse hand.

Why would you put a spell on ; anyway?

I have and if you search "semicolon" in the bug report forum, you'll find the names of my brothers who are also crusading against the vile ";".
