SWTOR: Complete KEYBINDING Guide and UI Tips

Keyboard keybinding is very personal and every player should edit and adjust their abilities to their own taste. With that said, in the linked video Vulkk shows us his personal bindings for both keyboard and mouse as well as various tips, tricks and reasons why certain skills should be located in certain spots and what is the logic behind each and every bound ability.

We had all just seen the preview of SWTOR update 1.2 and the new UI and we knew that there would be a great need for a site like this.
