    Unfortunately, because of how the mighty mouse is wired, you can't simultaneously signal both a right and left click to get the move and steer function. The mouse has only one mechanical button and uses electrical signals on the top of the mouse to register left or right, so you actually have to lift off of the left portion of the mouse to register a right click.

    I believe the WoW default for move and steer on the Mac is the "middle button" (the scroll wheel button on most mice). Unfortunately, that's also used by Apple for Dashboard (or was it Exposé?). So if you want to use that button, you'll have to move the OS X function (in the Exposé & Spaces pane of System Preferences).

    I use a third party mouse, so I can't guarantee that the scroll nipple on the mighty mouse will function like the scroll wheel button on my mouse. Additionally, since using the scroll wheel changes camera depth, I find myself using the arrow keys about 90% of the time (though this could be because that's how I played before I figured out how to get the middle button to work).

    Good Luck.

    Get a third party mouse. Really. I am 100% Apple all the way-- except for the mouse. And it was WOW that put me over the edge. Up until WOW, I was even willing to grit my teeth and live with the hockey puck.

    Uh yes, buy an other mouse, even a cheap one. I love the MM, but for gaming it's completely useless.
