Buy an MMO mouse and see if she can get used to that. She doesn't need to get used to using all the buttons. Just a couple.

She can then play a class like Commando/Merc or Sorc/Sage, that can dps from range without having to move too much. She can play these classes like immobile turrets until she gets better.

Have her slot the most spammed abilities for the class she chooses onto the action bar at numbers she can easily reach and keep hitting.

Depending on what you do, having a sorc healer may be the best option if you only play together and don't do OPs or PvP where it matters that you use keybinds..
It doesn't matter. Or at least not as much as people sometimes make out. Obviously key-binding is an advantage but you can still do very well clicking if you are fast enough. It all depends on your reaction time.

If we're just talking Regs and SM Ops key-binding is not a necessity at all. Assuming she's relatively fast with clicking she can DPS or heal through both without an issue and potentially even top leaderboards on the former.

Unless she's looking to get into progression raiding or wants to strive to be among the best at her chosen class in Ranked, I'd say he's better off just supporting her in playing however she most feels comfortable.

Look into game pads. I use the Logitech G13 game pad. They are very easy to get use too. I'm not a fan of a keyboard for mmo's because there are soooo many buttons to bind. The G13 has 25 buttons to bind with another 25 buttons if you decide to use a shift bind. Plus it has a thumb stick for character movement.

I use the G13 game pad with the Logitech G700 mouse that has 11 buttons that you can bind.

Good Luck

I bought my woman a Steel Series Rival 500 to help her up her game. Things like the Razer Naga were intimidating for her, but the Rival's buttons worked with her thumb movement. As a clicker she found the game to be a chore, but now she's fully enjoying it.

Like other posters said, take the time to teach her. It doesn't have to be like training a dog if you don't want it to be. Since the story mode is so easy that it doesn't teach you anything, I've started taking her into vet FPs to level, warzones to learn how to use DCDs and react under stress, and how to parse on the dummy in her ship.

She picked up the game as a clicker to do something fun with me. Now that she has her mouse, she has a goal to be early NiM-capable by Christmas. This is just my experience, but taking her on the journey to being an excellent player is far more fun than killing skytroopers that are incapable of fighting back.

Thanks!
Engineer or MM. You basically entrench and spam abilities. Its the easiest clicker classes. I find like others arsenal merc to be click friendly. Never tank. You will need a minimum of keybinds to deal with swaps in pvp and pve. You cannot tank without keybinds of some level.

I run a hybrid click keybind. I do fine and believe using an inferior method of fighting is superior then learning to be pure bound. I do recommend a gaming mouse. They have features that make clicking more friendly.

my friend is a clicker and can play nearly every class (he only has problems with combat sentinel and assault specialist commando but im pretty sure he just doesn't like those specs because of how he explains it)
tell her to practice like everybody else, she aint special
