    Default Playing rift with 1hand - Dislocated my arm, 15cm gash in my head.

    so im 15 and i had a bike accident, i ended up getting a 15cm gash on my head and a dislocated arm. it keeps dislocating itself so i have to wear a sling. hence i can play rift with only 1 hand.

    Damn man did you ride into a bulldozer? That looks pretty brutal. At least you're alive.

    You could either buy that ridiculous mouse with 80 buttons and map all of your functions to it, or you can just play with a two button mouse and play at the precision and speed of the majority of my PUG members.

    Turn on Click to Move and find/use a macro build. If you were a keyboard turner, now's a great time to kick the habit.

    Hope your recovery is a speedy one.

    Why did I look at the picture?

    Get well soon, though! No idea how you could make playing with one hand work. If you are really flexible, you could try to use one hand and one foot instead

    Most male MMO gamers play with one hand.

    I knew some WoW players who had one usable hand. But they had a much more advanced addon system to help out with some of the stuff.

    Which hand do you have available? Have you looked into stuff like the razer naga?
    You can play WoW in any MMO. You don't have to play WoW in RIFT. Oh, and no, RIFT is not a WoW clone. Not having fun any more? Learn to play, noob! I don't speak for Riftui, but I moderate stuff there. Just came back? Welcome back! Here's what's changed. (Updated for 2.5!)

    I just pretend I am innocent and have no idea what you are talking about


    Edit: I think Evisrus isn't in the mood to play with his buddy, after he crashed into a reindeer with his bike. His main concern is how he will play Rift, so help him out a bit more! And I am really interested in one-hand-gaming, too. So I can play Rift and fold clothes/cook/vaccuum clean/give my husband a massage at the same time

    Well... you could try using a mouse like the Razer Naga and mapping everything to it but that would probably be hard to get used to (the moving primarily). Getting used to your hotbars being mapped to it doesn't take too long though. Do joysticks work with rift? Maybe get one and use your feet with it? (I know NOTHING about how those work, just trying to think of solutions).

    In a fit of irony, I am about to need to do this, because it turns out that I have a thing called a "rotator cuff", and also it is not working very well. So I am suddenly left-handed.

    ... Actually, I may give up and not try to play until this heals.
