Musings of a Multiboxing Noob

Adventures in Multiboxing - Part 1

Rate this Entry

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." Um, have you seen the Horde races than can be shamans? "Pretty" doesn't describe any of them. I settled for the weird looking pandas.

Normally, I would spend an unnecessary amount of time picking the details for how my characters look, but weird pandas look like weird pandas no matter which style of hair, eyes, etc. I pick. I ended up only spending a few minutes on each one and called it good.

Naming characters is always the difficult part. I have a hard enough time thinking of a name for one, let alone three characters. I decided to go with a themed naming scheme so that I at least had a starting point for picking names. Of course, one of the names I was going to use was already taken, which always sucks. Luckily, I was able to eventually find three available names that fit my theme. Success!

That's as much as I've accomplished so far. Next on the agenda is setting up ISBoxer. I better get to watching MiRai's videos!

    You were obviously talked into choosing the wrong faction. -_-

    Maybe I should make some characters on both sides and see which I like better.

    Yes, sir!

    This is probably what I would do. I'd recommend Human Mages because:

    • Mages are easy to multibox for beginners
    • While the Human starting area is going to be the most busy, it's also probably the easiest/nicest to multibox through (especially story-wise if you actually read quests).



    If you wanted to stick with Shaman then I'd say go Draenei since:

    • Draenei starting area is probably going to be a lot more quiet than the Human area, but is less forgiving when it comes to questing. I love the Draenei starting area because I'm familiar with it, but other multiboxers do not like it at all.
    • Horns and a tail are a win-win situation (as well as that accent)

    If I am just playing around, I pick the starting zone as the most important. Blood Elfs have greens and blues as rewards, which make me feel better than grey and white stuff. Really, I went all the way over there and killed the guys you wanted, got the leg bones that almost never show up and then did it 3 (5) times and all I got was this white gloves?
    I love Draenei since I want to pretend that Gift of the Naaru (a HOT) might make me feel better. I think they also have a 1% hit increase. It used to be an aura, but I guess that was OP.
    For my horde shammies, I picked troll since I thought I liked their racial (haste CD) and totems. It probably is a wash though.

    So for me, quest rewards, then a useful racial, then looks, then flip a coin.

    Thank you for sharing this useful knowledge, I will definitely keep it in mind. You can challenge yourself by playing 1v1 unblocked game lol. 1v1 lol unblocked is a one-on-one shooting game. It will give you a one-of-a-kind shooting game experience. Destroy enemies with vehicles as well as weapons. Create structures to support your defenses.
