The Razer Naga Trinity can be described in 3 words: powerful, ergonomic, accessible. Named Trinity due to its 3 customizable side buttons that you can easily swap at any time. When you need an ideal MMORPG mouse, the Razer Naga Trinity is a perfect choice.

One of the exceptional selling points of the Razer Naga Trinity above the other iterations is that you can change the side plate depending on the game you are playing. This features the 12-button layout, that is enough to bring any WoW player to their knees. However, you can switch it out for a simple 2-button layout for FPS gaming or day to day use, or reduce it down to a 7 button MOBA layout, which is something very convenient for any MMO player.
As for the scroll wheel, it is very tactile and easy to the touch and allows a custom tilt.
The Razer Naga Trinity is covered in hard plastic with each side attached with rubber grips and flaunts its signature Razer RGB colors from top to bottom which looks “very” Gamery. The side buttons are well-placed, meaning you will not have a frequent case of misclicking. The Naga is built with top-quality materials to achieve an optimal accurate, well made gaming mouse.
Naga Trinity uses 5G optical sensor with up to 16000 DPI with less than 1 ms. In layman’s terms, you will feel little to no input lag, giving you a the competitive edge over your opponents.
For a gaming mouse, the Razer Naga Trinity feels quite heavy – 120 g to be exact. This can either be good or bad depending on how you want your mouse to weigh; for shooters, a heavy mouse is a matter of preference. For MMORPGs, a light to medium-light mouse is typically preferred by players.
I do want to note that even if the Razer Naga Trinity is fitting for any hand size, the 12 buttons on the side can be too small; you may think you have clicked on button 6 but you could of actually hit button 5. It will take some time to get used to and adjust to the mouse and it’s layout.
You can play your games with either a claw grip or a palm grip. Both are favorable in any MMO circumstance.
So, why 3 interchangeable side buttons? That is because it all depends on your style of gaming. 12 buttons are great for fast-paced MMOs, 7 works well with MOBAs and 2 is favorable if you are more used to keyboard mapping instead. What matters most is that the mouse is very ergonomic in the hand (right or left) – no matter the palm size.
Razer Naga Trinity uses a Razer Synapse 3 driver, which allows you to adjust your DPI up to a maximum of 16000 (typically you never need to set it this high). Synapse also allows you to adjust the RGB colors and map the 12 keys. You can even assign the colors based on the game you are playing which adds a bit of personal touch whenever you want to go aggressive with your guild in WoW or grinding for Solos in DotA 2.
The Naga automatically detects which side buttons you attached with so you do not need to go through the configuration profile.
Speaking of profiles, you can make up to 4 setting profiles allowing you to easily switch profiles using the button underneath the device.
I highly advise mapping each set of custom keys because if you need to swap the attached side buttons with another set of side buttons, the Naga Trinity will automatically detect the new one and adjust the settings accordingly.
Overall, if you have the money, the Razer Naga Trinity is a must-buy whether you play online RPGs, MOBAs or even a bit of Quake. It is an all-around fantastic mouse which you can set and customize.
