    Default Dualboxing, need help with ingame macros

    Hi! I'm new, and Im really enjoying multiboxing in classic for the first time in my life. Running two wow-clients on the same pc.

    I am not very tech-savy, but I usually find my way around problems I encounter. So here is the description of what I need help with:
    I have a warror tank main, and a feral druid alt. When I press my #1 key, my warror uses his /startattack macro, and my cat uses this macro:
    /startattack
    /cast Claw

    What happens though is that the druid targets the nearest mob (usually correct) and stops following the warrior. I counter this by having a target and follow macro bound to another key, but I was wondering if there are more elegant ways of doing this?
    I was looking into focus and assist, but I cant really understand it. It seems like the focus function isn't implemented in classic?

    Thank you so much from a multiboxer newb

    This is the result of a few game mechanics interacting.

    1. Whenever you use /startattack your character will automatically acquire the nearest enemy target.
    2. Whenever you autoattack your character automatically stops following.

    1. Can be avoided by using an assist macro prior to /startattack so that it will always attack what your primary character is attacking, rather than selecting a mob on its own.
    /assist CharacterName
    /startattack

    2. Can be resolved by using interact with target combined with click to move so that your second character will automatically move into melee range of the enemy target it has selected.

    Or you could avoid all of this fuffing around by just downloading ISBoxer that comes preconfigured with assist, follow and interact hotkeys and save yourself a headache.

    Change slave macro to:
    Code:
    /assist Master
    /startattack
    /cast Claw
    Then See WoW in-game bindings. Find the "Interact with target" key and bind a key to it. Say "V" key to IWT.
    Then enable click to move from WoW settings.


    Now spam 1,v,1,v,1,v
    Slaves will IWT and spam 1 ability while assisting main


    More advanced:
    There are better ways to do the assist part. Search for FTL (FocuslessTargetless Leadersless) setup guides. This works at least in there programs: AutoHotkey, HotkeyNet, IsBoxer. For HKN & AHK you need to create several in-game macros for the FTL setup to work. Also you might need to code the FTL yourself in AHK / HKN if you can't find a pre-made script. IsBoxer has FTL built in.

    People tend to preface their macros with a /stopmacro command along with one, or more, conditionals (e.g. [@target,noexists]), so that nothing happens if those aren't met. Otherwise, in the above example, both commands will still fire off, and /startattack will still pick up a random target.
    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.
