I've recently injured my back and Im unable to sit for very long, I'm looking for an online mmorpg of sorts where you can use a regular mouse for most of your actions. I play lying down since Im on bed rest and its very hard to manage keys.
Gonada Dahung,over 20 years of mmorpg's and counting....Please Lord, let someone make a game that had all the awesomeness of UO, EQ and EVE...
if you can't move much ( are bed ridden) i would look into joysticks and gameboards, as long as you can move both of your hands and all your fingers. Logitech gameboards and joysticks are pretty amazing, and they have a ton of varietey, and they are incredibly customizable too, so with just a few buttons you can do a ton of things. i can use my logitch G13+mouse laying down no problem, and the only things i'd be moving are my fingers a my wrists a bit. the little thumb stick on the G13 game pads it's just awesome. for chat just use a voice recognition software and just copy paste into chat. biggest problem is setting up the screen on the ceiling....
if pressing keys just will not do it you can look at the Peregrine controller glove, it won't have the options that Logitech gaming pads have but it might do.

...yes EvE is a game that you can play with pretty much only your mouse (except for chat)...
You probably wont play 'great' but half the time I lay in bed and use the mouse just fine. You will need the Keyboard for some things but its certainly doable especially for all of Prophecies (outside Hard mode and some of the last missions)
If you are looking to tool around and use a Keyboard 99% of the time you can do this with GW...Again, you wont be "good" and would be much better with a Keyboard- Who cares? Its still fun.
GW1 is my "laying in bed" mmorpg. When we are doing a hard run I will actually sit up and play but when I am by myself or just screwing around (most of the time) its all done one handed, with a mouse, curled up under the covers, peeking at the monitor.
There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein"Graphics are often supplied by Engines that (some) MMORPG's are built in" - Spuffyre

GW has the same type of setup (which is why I recomended it) even "click to move" if needed . The great thing about GW1 as a mouse only game is that there are only ever one skillbar of like 8 skills. So the UI is great and the game is set up to use a very minimum amount of skills.
..Plus its not a Korean Grinder lol.
BUT you are right. Same basic setup with less skills (generally)
This video is from a year ago, but I just saw it recently ... so if you have a windows tablet ..
I have not tried it, but our post reminded me of this and it looks like they have a pretty long list of supported games.
If you can get a beta key, hearthstone.

I did get one some time back, thanks for the reminder, I set it up and its quite fun. Not quite the fun feel of an MMO but it will do for the time being.
I did try to play wow since im still technically subbed and I wanted to throw my pc out the window. Im a keybinder and I like to pvp so lying down was aggravating.
thanks for all your replies

just a thought, but if you do have a gamepad, you can probably play most games using that if the keys are 'rebindable' which most MMO's they are afaik.. but yeah, PVP not so great, either way going to be at too much of a disadvantage, until you get better anyway
also, FFXIV;ARR selecting gamepad is just a clickie, and it reconfigures the interface for you automatically.
I know Spiral Knights can be set up to be played mostly with the mouse so that might be an option, but it's not that much of a mmorpg (mostly instanced) and the graphics style might not be for everyone.
I wish you good luck with your recovery.
