    Default Any active boxers?

    Hey folks,

    Just picked up FFXIV and like the atmosphere of the game so far.

    But getting the the urge to box (mainly for PotD) but if I grasp it then possibly dungeons.

    Any boxers currently active?

    Any tips on jobs etc?

    Cheers

    I've looked at summoners too. Is there much longevity in the game or does it get boring quickly?

    I haven't played in years. It is fun. I play wow now. It's just.. better lol.

    FFXIV I found (at the time) to be very unresponsive, typical with Korean / Japanese mmos. Every action is preceded by a pause by your character, and an unnecessary amount of ramp-up for actions. Felt too slow. I yearned for the responsiveness of wow and the fluid feeling of combat.

    i boxed wow religiously until march 9th 2013 when they killed /follow in bgs. stupid afk botters ruined it for us boxers! do they have /follow again in wow? if you returned..

    im also like the OP and interested in boxing ffxiv after not gaming for many years due to career focus. im now returning to mmorpg and looking to multibox ffxiv. my wife usually heals for me. i dont know much about ffxiv except wife and i lvled to 45 as marauder/healer during the trial.

    im curious about class comps for both PVE and PVP. i heard pvp in ffxiv is good now. 5 summoners caster dps might be good in pvp. do people run all the same class? in wow i did 5 shaman, 5 druid, or 4dk and a pally all teams hit 2200 rate for the pvp shoulders. im very curious to what works best in ffxiv. i guess i'll have to watch some videos and play around myself since im not familiar with all the classes

    I'm gonna try dual boxing this game. I actually use to play a lot solo during heavenward but then I got into WoW and started multiboxing. Young multi boxer here only been doing it for over a year now. Its gonna be interesting boxing ffxiv and carrying over all my isboxer knowledge. I think dual boxing this game is perfect I'll let you guys know how it goes!

    I boxed whatever the size of a group is,4? But i had a warrior, summoners and a white mage. White mage had the best AOE at the time.. it did damage and healed.. was way op, not sure if it got nerfed or not. I was planning on leveling a full group of white mages, but ended up coming back to WoW.
    Currently 5 Boxing 5 Protection Paladins on Whisperwind Alliance

    Just resubbed to this game.
    Doing Paladin / Bardx2 / Whm, but since you can switch the job pretty easily, I'll most likely rotate it around some.
    All of the Jobs/Classes in this game have much more complex rotations than WoW so its difficult to get good parses I'm thinking, hoping its something that can be optimized and that's the fun in it.

    Nice - After I catch up on some videos I wanted to do, I was planning on messing around in FFXIV, as well as maybe RIFT, to sorta branch out from WoW a little bit and get some experience in other games.
    Do not send me a PM if what you want to talk about isn't absolutely private.
    Ask your questions on the forum where others can also benefit from the information.
