    Default Duo Leveling Class Comps

    Since /follow in BG's is probably a lost cause I've been thinking of just rolling two toons to level/farm together and then main one for PVP. Stumbled across Kargoz video's and I was impressed at some of the things he was discovering/being told about. A few of these comps are obvious, and a few not so much. I enjoyed watching it. Makes me legit consider Pally/Lock when I was 99% sure I was going to go Rogue/Druid.

    I think 2 mages are nice because it makes AOE farming so damn easy. Though I'd be following joanas guide and barely do any AOE. For single target grinding I love playing double melee. 2x feral druid would be great once you hit lvl 20 and get cat form and Feline Swiftness.

    For mixed classes, I'd say playing hunter/feral would be sweet. I'd play from the hunters perspective, and use the feral as a 2nd pet.

    mage aoe farming was efficient because you were solo and it also required a lot of skill with kiting, boxing two for aoe sounds like a clumsy mess to me, and not very optimal as a boxer. If i were going to aoe farm as a boxer i'd just go a warrior/warlock and a healer.

    Warrior + healer (paladin or shaman) would be my choice.

    Warriors are unstoppable with a healer supporting them. If you get ganked, paladins and shamans are both very tanky and freedom/dispels from paladins ruin anybody trying to kite your warrior. It's also generally fast to pug a few DPS when you want to do dungeon quests.

    I had a lot of succes duo boxing my wifes rogue with my druid. Could tackle a lot of things including some dungeons.

    Lewsifur: were you going bear on the druid and basically tanking the mobs while the rogue did the damage? I'm very curious about this combo.

    I'm planning on dualboxing warrior-mage and have been practicing some rotations. I think that the kargoz videos are just scratching the surface and that it will require actual testing/practice to figure out which combinations are a) optimal and b) fit your playstyle.

    With warrior-mage I find I don't really need a healer. Mobs die pretty quickly and hamstring+Frost Nova kiting and aggro volleying results in taking much less damage. I've been working on mostly single Target rotations and find that to get the most out of warrior-mage you need independent movement controls on both toons. Being able to pull while the other character is drinking/eating is important. I have some recordings if anyone is planning on running a similar setup and is interested in some techniques I've identified.

    World / quest was cat and rogue stealth quest stacking. Shift to bear for aoe killing.
    prowl stealth to backstab quest nameds.
    distract past when competition was around.

    in dungeons was bear mode for trash, with rogues stuns to shift heal then back to bear.
    named bosses woukd rogue tabk at start, heal, then shift to best and taunt off for rogue bandage.
    sometime would stealth /distract past dingeon trash to reveal, bear mode discvered, sprint to named and shadowmeld.
    ne rogue did the same.

    world pvp would have the druid as bait, the rogue would do sap combo from behind, then druid follows with feral stuns etc and kill.

    utility was great, druid needed some gesr, but both lesther meant druid did skinning and herbing rogue did skin and leather, gave herbs to alt for alch.

    had roots, stuns, and brez, so rogue coukd die x2 on some fights. Rogue gear was specced to give up some dps for tankyness.



    hope this helps

    I was dead set to do a 5-box, but trying it out for a bit it's just not for me. So I'm going to dualbox instead, but the biggest problem I'm having is choosing the second class. The first will be a mage, but the other classes all bring something good so it's really hard to decide. Whenever I think I've chosen one, I start thinking "hmm but wouldn't that be nice" and then I go back and forth. The main reason I want to dualbox is to have options what to main at 60, so I don't want mage x2. It might help wedge both of them into raids at the same time as well if the second class is something that's needed (healer/class in demand).

    At the moment I'm choosing between mage + priest/warlock/hunter/paladin/druid (typing this, yeah I realize thats almost all of the classes.. it's tough!).

    Mage feels good with everything it seems and that's why it is hard to choose. It would be easier if I wanted a warlock because that narrows it down to a healer at least (life tap). But yeah.

    Is anyone else going dualbox with mage+something? What will you do?

    Other people might have different opinions but I don't feel like mages are the most optimal character to 2box. About the only thing I can think of is having a disc/holy priest with power infusion on follow to keep you shielded and healed while your mage AE grinds. Which isn't even necessary. Mages already excel at solo farming and AE grinding. Having a second character tagging along is only going to slow you down.

    I've already stated above but I feel like having one character capable of tanking and another capable of healing is the best duo comp. It makes forming groups for dungeon quests simple and heals make melee classes exponentially stronger. If you absolutely want to play a ranged character rather than melee, priest/warlock or paladin/hunter would be a more optimal choice than mage. Pets can tank any quest elite and warlocks/hunters can grind indefinitely with a healer. You'd even be able to solo DM tribute runs by yourself with a bit of gear.

    What is it about 5boxing that put you off that you feel won't be an issue with 2boxing? Once you get your setup streamlined there's honestly not a whole lot of difference between managing 2 characters and managing 5 and the payoff is a lot higher being able to farm dungeons without having to share loot.
