    Default The multiboxer mount

    A new mount was added in 8.1, a super secret hidden mount.

    https://www.wowhead.com/news=289124/...court-of-stars

    It has a unique spell effect.

    Joins with the target, a member of your Hivemind, limited to the outdoors, following normal vehicle rules.
    and
    Effect #3 Apply Aura: Mod Mounted Speed %Value: 10%
    Effect #4 Apply Aura: Incerase Mounted Speed % - Stacks
    Value: 10%
    Wont know for sure until someone actually finds the mount in game, but it looks like it increases mount speed by 10% for everyone thats in the hive. You're looking at 50% increased mount speed for 5 boxing.

    This was just completed. I am in the process of getting it now to see how well it works.

    And if they are all connected it might mean never losing follow.

    Edit. Found a video to the mount released by the wow secrets discord.

    It looks like only one person needs the mount, other party members just jump on like any other multi-person mount.

    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.

    Copy from my post on WoW Reddit:

    I have completed this on my 5 druid multibox.
    TLDR: If you did hivemind on that chracter you can only hivemind with others from the group. If you didn't do hivemind on that character anyone who didnt' do hivemind on that character can join. Hivemind speed bonus does not stack with other effects such as Paladin Crusader or Pathfinder.
    Numbers below are based on Deja numbers for movement speed.
    In Zandalar with pathfinder part 1. Hivemind mount (0 inside) - 220%
    Hivemind mount (1 inside) - 220%
    Hivemind mount (2 inside) - 220%
    Hivemind mount (3 inside) - 230%
    Hivemind mount (4 inside) - 240%
    In Dalaran (Legion,280% flying) with pathfinder part 2
    Hivemind mount (0 inside) - 390%
    Hivemind mount (1 inside) - 390%
    Hivemind mount (2 inside) - 400%
    Hivemind mount (3 inside) - 410%
    Hivemind mount (4 inside) - 420%
    In Pandara (280% flying) Hivemind mount (0 inside) - 390%
    Hivemind mount (1 inside) - 400%
    Hivemind mount (2 inside) - 410%
    Hivemind mount (3 inside) - 420%
    Hivemind mount (4 inside) - 420%
    I then logged onto my paladin (who was not part of the hivemind group) and my druids could not enter his hivemind mount. Next I logged into an entirely different group (but on the same accounts) and they were able to join the hivemind together (they are level 43). At this point I swapped back to my paladin for speed tests.
    Paladin: Orgrimmar (310% flying) Hivemind mount (0 inside) - 430%
    Hivemind mount (1 inside) - 430%
    Hivemind mount (2 inside) - 430%
    Hivemind mount (3 inside) - 440%
    Hivemind mount (4 inside) - 450%
    Paladin: Zandalar - Pathfinder Part 1
    Hivemind mount (0 inside) - 240%
    Hivemind mount (1 inside) - 240%
    Hivemind mount (2 inside) - 240%
    Hivemind mount (3 inside) - 240%
    Hivemind mount (4 inside) - 240%

    I did it casually between yesterday and today. I think the red monocle was the worst part as you can't really save any time on it.

    My suggestions:

    Blue monocle = send your highest achieved character from your team. Nobody else as phasing headaches are everywhere.
    Yellow monocle = send only one. The puzzle will ruin your FPS. This puzzle is long. Expect an hour or two on it.
    Green monocle = super easy. Doesn't matter.
    Red monocle = send the character with the abyssal seahorse. A huge improvement though it's still a timesink as you need to travel A-B-A-C-A-B, etc.

    Not all characters have to have all monocles. Can have one red, one green, one yellow, one blue.

    For the suramar part, be mindful of the mob HP. Send first four to the four waypoints, put on the monocle that cons red. Take off weapons, dismiss pets and keep them around 10% life. Send 5th toon to the room with the cabinet. Run into the cabinet until you come through the other side and click the pillows until you get kicked out.

    FYI: Damage from the room will need to include absorbs as well. The flat damage number is not accurate if a character with an absorb on them did it.

    On yellow, as I suspect this will be a problem for a few people. This thing will wreck your GPU so don't send more than 1. For that 1, identify the board color by finding the tile that cannot be altered anywhere. That'll be your board color. Then slowly work to convert the rest of the tiles to that color. Keep in mind that tiles are usually not affected by controls on the other side of the board. Stay local, look once in awhile out of that range if you can't find the source of the control. Basically all the controls shoot color changes across the titles in a X + O format.

    Rest of the guide stuff should be straight forward.

    I took my entire team and have all 4 monacles on all 5 characters. If you are only sending one character per, none of them matter if your team is 120 except the one in Vahjir. If you have a druid, send the druid - do the sea legs quest and use aquatic form - this makes aquatic form the same speed or faster than flying (it was quite a bit faster on my 280 flying team). For the yellow monacle download the addon Hivemind HoO Puzzle helper, this makes the process take ~20 minutes if you fill it in properly. I'm not sure why it killed the FPS of the above poster as my team sat looking at the puzzle and I didn't notice any issues.
