I'd love to be able to consistently mouse click. But so often it doesn't work that I habitually use the X now.

X Almost every moment!
(For a couple reasons)
1. I use a laptop.
2. It's easy for me to have one hand on the keyboard, and one hand on the arrow keys

I usually use "x" to interact with objects, and the mouse to move around the world. I like it better than WASD or the arrow keys for that :)

X button definately. Somehow, when i use the mouse, it takes about 5 clicks to actually interact with the object. ( this may sound lame, but you are not always sure where the object is.)

I almost always use the 'x' button since I use a laptop. The only times I use my mouse pad to select is when I accidentally push the 'c' button one too many times

I use the X button because i think it's better than clicking the right spot

I'm definitely in the X to Interact camp. I've tried using the mouse to interact a few times (mainly in the pet pavilion) and can't get it to work, I end up looking at someone's stats & info instead of starting a game.

Well, I almost always use "x" when walking. As I am on a laptop, a touchpad is not the most efficient way to move. When I shop, sell, or am fighting, I use the mouse, though.

I mostly use X because my mouse is very unreliable, haha.

Most of the time I use "X", sort of... I have my mouse programmed so that pressing the scroll wheel is the same as pressing "X"

I'm more of an X person. I usually have one hand on the keyboard on ASDF and the other on the arrow keys. I use the mouse for battles, shopping, and decorating my little piece of MooShu. I'm wondering, though, how many people use WASD instead of the arrow keys.

I prefer using the X button. I was not even sure that the mouse was a viable option. (I may try it the next time I'm in the game.)

I use both. I prefer x button because that way if you need to talk to an NPC that has 10 people standing on top of them, you can. But I also use the mouse because I get multiple 5-second disconnects every time I play, and for some reason, they often disable the x-button ability, and I have to click. I usually re-log when that happens, but I can't if I am in a dungeon. If you got rid of the click ability, I literally would have to restart dungeons just because of not being able to speak to the characters. Potential rage-instigator there. Those random disconnects affect a lot of other things too, such as making my cards invisible when it occurs in battle, or making all traps and blades invisible, making my plants un-harvestable, pets invisible, wand invisible, etc. In other words, it does weird things. I assume it is a Wizard101 issue since it does not happen with my other games.

I usually/normally use the X button to interact with objects, mainly because there's usually a couple other players surrounding the npc that using the mouse click will sometimes bring up a character panel.
Sometimes I'll use the mouse, but overall, I feel that the X button is the better/more easier way to go.

Most of the times I press X, but when i'm feeling too lazy to move my right hand above the key letter X i just use my mouse to click the object or npc XD
