    Whenever I dual box I get no rage anywhere. Nobody notices because it's natural and appears to be two people playing. So my advice would be take one melee and one ranged at a time. Two ranged isn't bad. That basically means running LFR three times.

    A little story: Back in MOP my war + shm + bm * 3 crew sat at the top of the healing and DPS meters for the first leg of SoO LFR. Up to pride. This pissed a lot off. They complained in raid chat and even though some in the raid told them to zip it they kept going. So the raid vote kicked to shut these people up. Even though we were winning half my team got vote kicked. I think that was the last time I ran LFR on more than two characters.
    The more I look at it, the more I think I should drop down to 3 boxing. Easier to manage, less noticeable in LFR, and overall seems like less of a hassle.

    Swap out the other two accounts, as needed to keep the gear up. And when I have an itch to play mythics I still have a balanced team.

    That is very valid advice.

    That is very valid advice.

    I bounce between 5 and 2 a lot. 2 is very comfy. 3 is a bit more to manage because of the need to split roles on encounters a lot. With 2 different roles 2 boxing, everything is manageable. Melee moves on a different modifier than your main does. WASD for main, ALT WASD for the 2nd. Or updownleftright if lefty.

    Once you have two melee or two ranged it gets a lot hairier. Cleave bosses would always be tough with two melee (tank + melee) and ranged mechanics requiring heavy movement are rough on two ranged.

    The game is wide open at 2. You can do scenarios, raids, PvP, etc. You can ride in the best passenger mounts too. Again very comfy.

    My justification for 5 boxing is usually that I can and that running dungeons is very fun. It's different. Not easy by any means and should be taken as an added challenge. Sometimes it borders on the absurd and that compels me back to dual boxing.

    Create a keybind in isboxer that sends a follow to all your slaves, and resets the camera view facing forward. Now just run through LFR with mouse broadcasting turned on and tap that keybind every few seconds. Your slaves will run less bunched up and more natural looking. Though thats only really good for traveling too the boss, not during the fights.

    You could also mog your guys different, ride different mounts, hunters with different pets, etc. People wont really even notice you are boxing. Though the more toons you bring in at once the easier it is to notice.

    I've always tired to stay away from LFR, mainly because I'm not very good at PvE as it doesn't interest me.

    My main problem is I'm naughty and join with all tanks so DPS wise I'm in the middle or bottom.

    However, on more than one occasion I've saved the raid by becoming the tank and healer!

    Knowing the tactics and lead the dps is the key to stay in LFR with a 5 man. Sometimes you will have bad luck and a bunch of salty guild kids try to kick you before raid even starts. Dont waste your time thinking about it, do something fun instead .

    As long as i 8 box in LFR i never ever get kick voted in Legion! Technically they could, but they never did. Maybe i look so many and they get feared by gettin kicked, or i was just a lucky guy.

    Fun Fact back in MoP:
    Tried 8 box in LFR, salty kids started hating ...bots hack loot blablabla ... kick vote started - first toon get kicked ..... immediately i started a kick vote against the biggest Hater, reason: "fuck Multiboxer" - The toxxic hater guild kicked his own member out of the raid . It mades my day...
