    As a piece of software it's capable of running just fine on WINE. Bungie are apparently permabanning people for running it through WINE though.
    Which makes it entirely impossible to run under Linux. Kind of sad.

    What is your budget? Starting from there we can work out what you can get that will yield a good typing experience. RGB? Stick a couple LEDs underneath, proper feel whilst typing > anything else.

    A good example of a really well built keeb, cherry MX stabilizers that can be modded and lubed, a detachable USB Type C cable, MX Red switches and a very good price.

    Honestly, I have in my drawer 2x Blackwidow Ultimate and a Blackwidow Chroma X and they're shelved because of shit stabilizers that Razer insists on putting on their keyboards. They did put one out now something tournament edition that has proper stabs but it's around 150 quid which is a bit steep for a mass produced TKL. I don't even use the RGB in my Ergodox because I don't really need it to know what keys I'm pushing

    If you really want RGB as a priority go to a Game shop, try them out and buy the most affordable one with RGB that you feel good typing on.
    I hate media keys and a single volume control is about as far as I would go (in-fact now I dont have any on-headset or remote puck style volume keyboard volume is quite important), RGB is not in itself a requirement but backlit most definitely is and the 2 seem to be pretty synonymous today, what is high on the list though is 10 keyless and preferably removable keypad, making room for joysticks or moving the keypad when i swap my mouse from left to right (I know I am strange i cant decide which hand to use).
    Budget really £70 - £100 but that is not set, the more I look the more I like the RO,with other high end boards design and quality?

    And having an image that does not cause Autism attacks even more so.

    I'm unsure why you'd need backlit keys, surely nowadays you can touchtype and you know where everything is on your keyboard?

    If 70-100 quid is your budget, look into the GSkill in my link. It's a lot of actual keyboard for the money - I can't stress what a difference good stabilizers make for the overall experience.

    Also fyi most of the aftermarket keycaps are not compatible with backlighting and PBT keycaps are love - the difference of the tactile feeling is p. noticeable and they don't get greasy almost at all as opposed to the usuall ABS plastic that looks like you bathed in the grease of a thousand burritos even if you've just washed your hands.

    A bit above your range, but this is fairly nice and has hot swappable switches, and is fully programmable with QMK.
    https://drop.com/buy/massdrop-ctrl-mechanical-keyboard

    Ducky one is more in your range and Ducky makes solid shit as well
    https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop..._detail&p=4284

    GMMK, barebones, cheap, and loved by many, but comes without switches and stabs or caps, but is a hot swap board so just stick in what ever you want. Available in ISO layout aswell if thats your flavor
    https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop..._detail&p=5084
    Or geta pre built one for a bit more
    https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/shop..._detail&p=5081

    Logitech has also step their game up as of late. They approached the reddit mkb subreddit to get input on what people would like to see in their boards and came out with the G Pro/ Pro X, which by all accounts are really solid boards that are hot swapable.
    https://www.logitechg.com/en-us/prod...-keyboard.html

    I dont know what Cosmin is on about, there are plenty of key cap sets out there for RGB/Back Lighting in both ABS and PBT. I have PBT pudding caps on mine to spice it up a bit.

    That should give you a pretty decent idea of whats out there. Really just stay away from no name brands and overpriced garbage like Corsair. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I have a ducky, it's awesome.

    Also there's tons of stuff not by Asus compatible with Asus Aurora. For example Thermaltake Riiing Plus fans. Google will help you.

    Like I said in the hardware thread, anything that uses a 3-pin 5v header will work with Aura.

    That doesn’t necessarily apply to keyboards and mice though.

    TBH I wish I could use my keyboard’s RGB software to control the case lighting, it’s way better than Aura.

    Oh god, pudding caps, top kitsch right there.

    No, but seriously now, good sets are not backlit. No GMK set is backlit compatible and ePBT (who does most good PBT sets) have few backlight compatible keycaps. Good sets = keycaps that aren't warp or have poor finish to them. Yes, you can get lucky with cheapo sets, there are plenty. I just said, bottom line - you don't really need backlit keycaps to use a keyboard and the feel is a lot more important. And stabilizers are a lot more important as well. Wire-only are complete shit, cherry mx style are great because they can be clipped and lubed extremely easy and they improve the sound A LOT.

    Touch Typing is not the same as gaming especially when your hands are resting on other controllers and need to access the keyboard occasionally. when in the dark there is no substitute for lowlevel backlight.
    Despite actually liking the Claymore design it is over priced and it sounds like i can get much better options though removable keypad is still tempting me. Despite being in the position of getting VAT off for this one order I may just hold off then and look more into better keyboards.
    Listening to all your advice on headphones worked out, I appreciate the audio quality as much as i would have the convenience i gave up.

    And having an image that does not cause Autism attacks even more so.

    I respectfully disagree. If you can touch type properly, you know where everything is and you don't actually need backlight. I'm saying this because I thought I knew how to touch type. I didn't. My actual touch typing technique was not using all fingers, but was more of a hybrid solution.

    Getting acquainted with the ortho layout revealed that in that I used to rely on all the wrong things for my hand proprioception relative to the keyboard. It is why I can now use both staggered and ortho layouts without needing more than a few seconds to adjust.

    As a background, I game and touch type and I use an Ergodox, a 60% and a full size keyboard at work, as well as two different laptops with their own keebs. Only the Mac has backlighting and I seldom notice it (usually turning it off to save battery). The Ergodox has under side glow but it's usually off unless I tend to jot down some notes as well. Most of the house lighting at home at least is not used because I'm afraid I'm going to spontaneously combust

    May not be your case and you just stick with default keybindings in games, idk. But it may be worth an objective look at it?

    I'm sorry, but there is absolutely nothing objective about any of this. It's purely based on what one finds more comfortable.

    Why wouldn't you if they work perfectly fine? A solution where you have to rebind everything to fit whatever ridiculous layout you're used to and where it doesn't work outside of it is anything but "objective" in advice.

    My touch typing is honestly quite shit i can get by with out seeing the keys though and lack of a backlight would not stop me but my point is not about correct typing it was about having the quickest way to orientate you and find the key / combination you need after removing your hands from another control device and moving perhaps a couple of feet to where ever the keyboard is located doing what needs to be done and returning back to the primary controller. Of course there are ways around it, putting some ambient lighting for example would work but..
    Yes I am talking about an edge case quite a large one but still an edge case, however I am not some one that wants to have to swap around multiple keyboards for each specific situation or someone who has the drive to become some keyboard ninja that can feel a keycap that has been placed wrongly from 50m facing away.

    I had to swap my mouse use when gaming from left to right because the cramps i was getting trying to use arrow keys and reach other keys from those WASD claw if a relief. at least I am not a plane sim nerd who's hand is permanently conformed for that, must get awkward when socialising.
    And still not as bad as having controller calluses.

    I meant looking objectively at his touch typing skills if he needs backlit keys to find shit on his board, you mong <3

    Stop being retarded, default keybindings are not optimal for everybody, it's why you can change them in the first place. Fucking console plebs, I swear <3

    Itt I learned Isyel finds it more comfortable to look away from the screen whilst playing a game to find the key needed for the action than just press it by already knowing where it is
