View Full Version : 3 n00b questions

Ok, got into multi boxing yesterday on classic. Trying 3 mages. I have 3 dumb questions for the hive mind.

1. What are strategies for handling spells like frost nova so that only one person casts at a time? Do you use castsequence? Does that get screwed up with cold snap?

2. Do people spec all their mages ice for AoE? Or do they put some as fire or arcane at low levels?

3. Ok, I know the answer has something to do with interact, but I can't get it to work. How do you get everyone to face the target so they'll cast? It's killing me, lol. Literally. Is there a macro command I can put in front of spells to get people to face it?

3. I havent figured this out yet. It doesnt matter much to me as i mostly AE spam.

The fastest but most problematic way to face toons is to hit interact with target and then back pedal instantly, that can lead to toons getting “stuck” backing though. And I’ve had many many wipes where my healer stays backing and can’t cast and even spaming interact again will still leave him backing up.. this will happen maybe once a day or twice a day given I might do it hundreds of times I think of it as the multi box tax. Same as when you panic when you shouldn’t need to and wipe to one or two mobs who just get in amongst you!
