    I am getting very curious why so many people new to multiboxing want to learn by boxing classic. Why not retail? Classic will be more challenging and lack many of the QoL improvements we have in retail.

    Don't get me wrong, I am excited for classic as well, and I absolutely love that multiboxing is getting more popular. Just curious why start learning now and just for classic?

    In my case there are 3 reasons I'm multiboxing in classic and not currently playing BFA.
    Why Classic?
    1. Classic and TBC were my favorite expansions. When my wife and I played retail a few years back we were very turned off by the lack of challenge in the leveling process and in leveling dungeons.

    Why multibox?
    2. I love 5-man dungeon content, but (being 15 years older) need it to fit my schedule. Having a full party allows that.
    3. Having played WOW for many years and thousands of hours I felt I needed to up the complexity of the game to keep it engaging. Playing 3-5 characters at once seems promising for adding complexity! (I've done it in text-based MUDs, and even a bit of alt-tab Mboxing 2 chars in WOW in the past with good results on this front.)

    I fit this demographic to some extent.

    I've boxed EQ for awhile, but it was just ALT+TAB boxing. So, while I am new to IsBoxer boxing, I am familiar with the challenges inherent in controlling several characters at once, balancing automation with the ability to customize actions, etc.

    I've been practicing in retail for the last several weeks. So in that sense I am learning, at least the basics, in retail. But I don't particularly enjoy actually playing retail.

    I have known that I wanted to play classic WoW for a couple of months now. Once I made the decision to play, the decision to box followed pretty closely. I liked boxing EQ. I enjoy the independence. I like running dungeons more than questing. I like not having to worry if I am going to win a roll on an item. And frankly, I like the idea of being kind of a bad ass who has access to five or more max level toons, who can farm just about anything that a real group can farm, and who has access to all of the max level professions.

    Hello everyone, tell me pls - in the classic, do you need to loot every mob with every char or there will be some analogue of loo-a-rang?

    There is no loot-a-rang in Classic—you're looting every mob with whichever character it dropped loot for.

    There are options you can set as the group leader.

    For example, you can set the loot to free-for-all, and the character you are leading from can pick everything up (except quest loot like "Head of VanCleef"). You do have to loot each corpse individually in classic. If you're in a party by yourself, I see no reason not to do FFA.

    As I recall, you can also additionally set a rarity threshold where people roll for items at that rarity or above. e.g. if you set FFA + green, then any green items get rolled on but white items are first-come-first-served. I plan to use this setting to pick up whites and grays with whatever character is active, and roll to get gear upgrades to the appropriate party members (rather than walk up to the corpse with that character).

    I haven't found a great source to confirm my memory, and wasn't in Beta, but here's a thread on the blizzard forums outlining some (although not all) of the above: https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/wo...-classic/46504

    I use FFA loot and when there is a quest mob that actually drops a quest item that everyone needs to loot i just broadcast to all and makes sure they all grab it... im sure EMA will help track that too

    Just did it with Sarkoth in the stress test.. and looting the scorpids for example I did it following the main for 10 and then used another characters as the main for the next 10 and so on...

    FFA is the way to go (and later when running instance you can also set loot threshold (and I think master looter) to see only the good mobs with green+)
