    To quote myself:

    "There is no reason1 not to have all of your WoW accounts on the same BNet account."

    1there might be a reason, but it's highly subjective

    Sure, you could do that, but I think the problem is... How will you know which accounts have what prior to logging them in to see? What if you guess wrong and a rare mount ends up on the second BNet account when you wanted it on the first?

    There is no hassle whatsoever.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have a list of the "important" mounts and which accounts have them, so I could choose the merges that way. Even if I miss, I'd only have to get one more drop. (The list is short, Headless Horseman and Ashes of Alar)

    A buddy was running merged accounts, and way back he had to get several authenticator codes written down over a few minutes, before using them all at once to log in. Has that behavior changed? Or is it that they now buffer how often you enter the codes, so this mini-"hassle" is only once per week?

    Support said there was still an 8 account per BNet limit, so if I merge, and 10-box, I'd rather it end up as 2 groups of 5 that have good mount/pet/toy coverage.
    Doing my best to get motivated for the WoW Headless Horseman mount hunt of 2013... so far failing.

    I multibox because I have no time, have a life, have a job and[/or] money and have little patience for drama and temper tantrums. -- heffner

    I've had an authenticator since before we were forced to put our WoW accounts into a BNet account, and I've never written down any codes so that I could log in my accounts. If you get hit with an authenticator pop-up, you just enter it on one account, then bring it back to the login screen, and continue logging into all of your accounts simultaneously.

    Outside of changing hardware or IP, or unless you've specifically set your account to ask for an authenticator every time, I've no idea what prompts an authenticator pop-up—I see them only a few times a month, if that.

    Good deal.

    Also, the Armory is showing me who has what mounts, so that makes that part easier.

    OK. Regarding merging Blizzard/BNet accounts or moving WoW licenses from one Bnet to another... it just cannot be done in a way that makes sense for the player, for seasoned accounts.. The pool of Mounts/Pets/Toys doesn't get merged, but would merely inherit the Blizzard account items that licenses would move to.

    So.... if you are starting out... keep everything on as few Blizzard accounts as you can (8 WoW license limit per Blizzard account) as MiRai says.
    If you are adding new accounts... yeah, add them to you existing account(s).

    For me? I'm pretty much out of luck. My "main" account is missing some key mounts so moving WoWs over would be a loss for me.

    Also, they are trying to called main account/launcher "Blizzard" now instead of "Battlenet"... which make things harder to talk about, IMO.
