Just trying to figure out how this one is relevant. I have every single one of my abilities, including ones that I would never use, along with stuff like seeker droid, speeder, medpacs, bound with just the left half of the keyboard and shift + the left half of the keyboard. I don't have anything as far as 6 bound with shift (don't have shift+5 either, actually), and I don't use ctrl for anything.

I've got small hands too -- which is why I love my Razer Naga mouse. Might wanna check it out (or a similar product), made things worlds easier for me even though I am an excellent touch typist and can leave homekeys if I have to. Efficiency aside, it was just way more comfortable for me too.

Re the click vs bind discussion - I use a combination, and it works fine for me. I don't do Ops or Ranked WZs but I did the equivalent in WoW and performed just fine (I was a very good raider, but didn't do Arena seriously so was only average there).

I use a combination for 2 reasons:
1. I have small hands (I can reach shift & 6 at the same time, and ctrl and 5 if I stretch but nothing passed them)
2. I 25M raid healed in WoW for years, which requires clickcasting if you want to be any good

For those who aren't familiar with WoW raid healing:
- You have the 10/25 raid frames on your UI with health & mana displayed so you can monitor the heal team's resources, and you bind raid healing abilities to different mouse clicks, and keybind your tank healing and aoe abilities to keyboard above wasd so you can strafe and heal.
- During the fight you have the tank targetted, and you are using your keybinds to heal him while strafing and mouse moving, and you click on the raid frames (left/right/middle depending on which spell you want) to heal the raid, only using a key-mouse combination to target one (shift click for me) if they need some heavier heals you have keybound
- You only click actual abilities if you want to do something special like pop your big once-a-fight spell, at all other times you are busy clicking heals on different raid members and using the mouse to move (and as a resto druid I was constantly on the move)

So basically there's no way you could exclusively keybind raid heal and perform anywhere near as good as the clickcasters, with 25 different people to target and only a global cooldown (which was faster in WoW as healers typically ran with a nice chunk of haste) to have someone else targetted and a specific ability executed.

So while I do mouse move for the most part, I still strafe a lot because I'm used to my mouse being tied up for clickcasting, which sadly you can't seem to do in this game. I would love to set up a clickcasting UI for warzones.
i never play WOW in my life
what i see with most mmorpg that i play in my 9 years of gaming that some mmorpg

use way to many hotbars to many skills and so on its for some players a pain in butt to make a good
few how and where to put all your skills

if you ever play GW2 you see that they did it much beter less skills easy to use
ok you have more skills but you need to swap weapens if your good ad that

they more focus on move alot with your WASD and use dodge alot
you cant stand stil in combat

also you dont have pots only your heal skill

but ok i get used to it now but still a pain to see so many skills in your screen XD
but so far so good the more OPS i do the beter i learn how to work those skills

AS LONG the tanker no what he most do
and the both DPS stil they want to kill to fast and jump way to fast to mobs when tanker dont argo yet

and the dps get low hp fast
but i let them die if the do it to much i hope the beq for heals

so if you party with me dont make mistakes as dpser i send you to hell
free 7 days of sub

Because comfortably I can't use any number keys past 4/5 (5/6 are a stretch) if I have to use ctrl or shift with them, my bf can use most of the top row with his enormous man hands. Shift is bound to Vent anyway, I tried to set it up to work with one of my mouse side buttons but the drivers for it are bugged and I couldn't find a fix so I just left it on the keyboard.

On my Operative I have 4-5 action bars worth of abilities lol, idk what class you play. I mostly only use the ones on the main two bars and the two little side bars I have set up either side of the second main bar. I bound two of my instant cast heals to my mouse side button though, that was a huge help.

I have a Razer Deathadder, it has 2 side buttons. If I bought another mouse, I think I'd look into the Razer Naga Hex, it looks like its somewhere between the Deathadder and the standard Naga. Otherwise I'd look into a Nostromo for my left hand, but since I don't raid anymore and play in offpeak times on a PvE server so don't like my chances of getting into ranked WZs, I probably wouldn't bother for SWTOR. Maybe if I got back into WoW, but SWTOR's really spoiled me with its shiny character models and voice over quests and easy levelling and lack of hardcore grinding.

same problem for me, I have also small hands. The best mouse for me so far is actually the Naga Hex, even if I actually have to stretch for one side button also. But well. Its not so bad.

Heh, I queued up GF on my guardian tank last night; of course it insta-pops:

55 Guardian Tank (me)
55 Guardian Damage
55 Sentinel Damage
55 Sage Heal

I looked at it for a few seconds, then decided not to queue--3 Strength classes? No thanks. So I'm guilty of declining based on classes sometimes. I'm just being greedy though, because in the last 7 FPs I've done (I do one a night typically) I haven't had a single tank piece drop.)
