    Default How to practice boxing in classic for classic

    How are you guys practicing? I'd like to duo box at launch and want to do a 1-60 run of classic. How do I accomplish this?

    There's no need to open up multiple threads on the same exact topic, and I've deleted your previous thread. In the future, you can simply edit your existing thread to clarify the question/topic you're looking to approach.

    On to the topic at hand...

    What exactly are you looking to practice? If you're simply trying to learn how to multibox, then just play retail for now.

    One thing would be to know which quests are boxer friendly and which aren't. I'd love to have something like zygor or other questing guides that understand or flags quests that are random single drops (but also tells you which one to do anyway if they block a long chain)

    I set up my own server using [redacted], easy to install. I already did 4 hunters / 1 priest to lvl 60 on that server and plan on doing that when classic comes out

    I've done some initial practicing on a private server similar to Ethario. I'm using ISBoxer. I'm a returning player with limited multiboxing experience but I've had a lot of fun with just setting up a simple team using /assist and /target macros. I'm super hyped to multibox when classic comes out!.

    I was really hoping to practice with an FTL setup because this would be what I want to run when classic actually hits.

    Since private servers are inherently not compatible with the ISBoxer addon and my understanding of how FTL works is pretty limited to begin with, I thought I would try to follow this (https://www.dual-boxing.com/threads/...-Addons-Needed) guide for setting up FTL. Unfortunately, macros in general for 1.12 are very different. I've had a very rough go of trying to even begin to replicate similar functional macros using the old macro system utilized in private servers. There is no /click and adding modifiers like shift, alt, ctrl does not work the same as it would in the linked post either.

    I've got the addon SuperMacro added for the expanded character limit. This also allows for a /click type functionality in that you can use /script RunMacro("macroname") to run a macro from within a macro. Modifiers are allowed via: IsAltKeyDown(), but man for the life of me, I've not been able to piece it all together into something that works yet.

    Anyone else taken a different approach or had success setting up FTL on any of the various private servers using the old macro system?

    Code:
     
    function ModifySpellAction(options)    
    
    local shiftDown = IsShiftKeyDown()
    local ctrlDown = IsControlKeyDown()
    local altDown = IsAltKeyDown()
    local cast = CastSpellByName
        
    if(shiftDown and options.shift ~= nil) then cast(options.shift)
    elseif(ctrlDown and options.ctrl ~= nil) then cast(options.ctrl)
    elseif(altDown and options.alt ~= nil) then cast(options.alt)
    elseif (options.unmod ~= nil) then cast(options.unmod)
        end
    end
    Spell modifiers.

    Code:
    /script local texture,name,isActive,isCastable = GetShapeshiftFormInfo(2); if not isActive then cast("Defensive Stance()") end
    /script if (UnitHealth('player')/UnitHealthMax('player')<0.20) then cast("Last Stand") end
    /script if UnitMana("player")>10 then cast("Bloodrage") end
    /script if not buffed("Battle Shout", 'player') then cast("Battle Shout", 1) end
    /script if not buffed("Demoralizing Shout", 'target') then cast("Demoralizing Shout") end
    /script if not buffed("Sunder Armor", 'target') then KLHTM_Sunder() end
    /cast Revenge
    /cast Bloodthirst
    /script if(UnitMana("Player")>90)then cast("Heroic Strike");end
    /startattack
    Example fury/prot warrior script.

    I use the same setup I used in Rift with FTL slot modifiers.

    Also, there's an addon called ClassicMacros that pairs with SuperMacro and allows you to create simplified macros like /startattack and /cast Frostbolt.

    You could macro entire rotations using the vanilla API, making "smart" decisions when to cast spells, checking party health for when to heal and what spell to use, etc. You can see why they're not reverting to that version. It allows complete automation. Not much point learning it now since you won't be able to use these macros in classic.

    Hey, they alreafy said that the classic is running on 8.0.3

    Its not useing the old version off lua or the marcio system.

    Sorry there's no way I believe that half the stuff classic would work now.... ( in a good way for me addons backn then was evil to work with )


    As well when i boxed the classic demo i imported my isboxer ftl macros they worked fine.

    Woah, thank you for the code examples and tips Apetheist! No way I was gonna arrive at that the way I was going.

    I am glad they wont be using the old lua and macro system in classic since it seems to be such a pain. I guess if nothing else this will be something to keep me occupied/bang my head against until release.

    You'll need to download the SuperMacro addon to create complex macros. The default client macros have a character limit of 256 and you can only have 18(?)-ish macros. SuperMacro allows you to create unlimited macros with no character limit as well as custom functions through SM_Extend.lua.
