    Default Pantheon: Rise of the fallen

    Anyone else following this game? Its basically EQ1 updated to modern tech. Keeping the classic EQ style of combat and leveling. The reason I'm posting this here is because i was watching a stream of Jim Lee playing pre-alpha with the Devs. They talk about "two boxing". So although it wants players to group.. it seems as if they are suggesting ( by the conversation going on in the stream ) That boxing will be allowed.. to what extent, i do not know.

    go to 1:32 in the video for the short conversation about two boxing.

    I've not been following it religiously, but I've been sorta keeping an eye out.

    Direct from their FAQ:

    10.4 Will multi-boxing be allowed in Pantheon?
    Our reaction to multi-boxing is to try something first before we even entertain the idea of artificially restricting it. We want to make combat, especially mid and higher level combat, so tactically intense, with so much going on, so much to do, so much to counter, so many companions to keep alive and the timing of many abilities crucial, that multi-boxing is extremely difficult if not impossible and likely far inferior to having an actual real person in your group.



    From the looks of a quick Google search, it's actually been discussed quite a bit on both reddit and their official forums. Whether or not they're going to allow software replication is not something I saw mentioned by a dev/team member during my quick search.
    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.

    I had read some of that before. I just thought hearing Brad McQuaid saying he was going to start a ranger or paladin, then said "probably both? two box right?" So I'm sure there will be plenty of content that is boxable. I'm also sure some skilled boxers will take that "harder content" as a challenge. I personally plan to just two box for exploring and grinding etc. I look forward to exploring the harder content in real groups.
