    The subject of behavior and interaction in video games, especially strangers has long been of interest to me. I've often wondered: "What can I say in this moment to foster teamwork and facilitate getting the job done?" in a variety of gaming contexts. I marvel watching my significant other play co-op games where everyone is silent until the recriminations and bile start halfway through the match. A little communication can go a long way towards ensuring ...

  2. Lazy solution: Dpsing healer

    I usually quest and rift with my healer in healing spec (and my tank in dps spec). This costs me something in terms of time but I like to think I make it up in time NOT spent rezzing the team after a miscalculation. After switching to a 1-1-3 setup (before I was using a tank and four hybrid dps) I realized that I wanted an easy way to do a little dps on my healer when she wasn't otherwise engaged but not at the cost of there ever being any ambiguity what "mode" she was in.

  3. Multiboxing skills: what are they and do you have them?

    I've been multiboxing 2-6 boxes across 3 games since the summer of 2008, so I suppose that is six years of experience, on and off. Most of that time has been spent in World of Warcraft, a few weeks in Lord of the Rings and a few weeks in Rift (last summer and right now). So I've been practicing for years but I'm not sure if that means I'm actively getting better. When I play (raid on) a solo character (almost always a healing priest in wow) I have very definite ways in which to improve. Not only ...

  4. Rift Video Feeds

    My processor doesn't have the juice to record or stream rift while I'm playing but I thought I'd share what my current setup looks like, especially my current video feed setup which I find does an excellent job.

    My goal with my setup is that I have to turn my head as little as possible, that all of the information I need is readily available on my first monitor. When I'm outside instances I generally don't even have the second IS window visible, so the left hand monitor must show me ...

  5. Adventures in Multiboxing - Part 1


    I had a moment of insanity one night recently, and I decided that I should learn how to multibox for real. I narrowed down my options to either RIFT or the free trial of WoW, and a friend of mine was able to persuade me to do WoW.


    After much discussion with my Dual-Boxing.com friends/mentors, it was determined that I should be make 3 shaman to start out. Since I'm not sure that I'll ever even make it to level 20 or beyond, they suggested that I pick the "prettiest race." ...
