    Hey Guys,

    I'm new to this, have 5 accounts and using ISboxer. I've been trying MMMMM, but tend to die more than I think I should be. I'm doing things pretty simple at this point, no macros just putting the same abilities on the same hotkey and nuking stuff via the auto-follow. If I swap out a Mage for Priest and go MMMMP I think things would be better (and a res would be nice ). I assume there a posts on this but is it recommended to control the Priest for healing and have the Mages fire off in the background? Are their any tutorials to set this up? Adding a warrior to this seems like my head would explode but the tank would be nice in WMMMP, but if my goal is to have fun and grind gold I don't think the W is worth the extra effort is it? Thanks in advance and hopefully one of you experts can take this willing to learn noob under their wing for a while

    I would definitely get a healer and considering what you have so far I would either go MMMMP or WMMMP.

    As long as you are OK with mostly skipping bosses while leveling and potentially forgoing some bosses at cap MMMMP is likely the fastest overall.

    You likely would be well served from this great guide from Bruce Lee which gives you specs, macros, leveling routes, quests, gear to look out for and more for a MMMMP team:

    Driving from the Priest simplifies something but tends to give your Healer initial sight aggro. I would try driving from both your healer and your primary mage and see which fits you better. To drive from the Mage but be able to still heal from your Priest you will need some kind of healing solution and a simple one can be found in this video from Dalo:

    https://www.dual-boxing.com/threads/...Tutorial-Video

    Note that some MMMMP teams have tended to find that, even when equally geared, that one Mage tends to out damage the rest which may come down to speed/timing advantages for that slot. If you try driving from your Priest initially with the Mages all having the same gear and one is consistently out damaging the others then I would consider feeding into that further by driving from that Mage slot, getting him the best gear, and pre-shielding that mage before pulls.

    That should get you going pretty well. Note that I generally recommend having a Tank option at cap and it is nice to have a Warlock in the party but you already have invested some in MMMMM and MMMMP has speed advantages and you can offset some of the lost utility by investing in better bags than you normally would so you get full bags less often. If your MMMMM team is already level 20+ you could just do a second team of LLLLP to get the Priest up to where your Mages are and then use the level 20 locks for summoning around the world and if you take them to 35 you can use them for passive crafting cooldowns.

    Thank you very much for the great info, I ended up going WMMMP with a whole new group. I really like it! Is there a good thread going that shows which spells to combo together between toons? For example, what spells work well on the warrior and priest while the mages are casting frostbolt. With the MMMMM it was easier

    If you mean that if you are pushing a button...all attack... but the tank hasnt had time to grab aggro...so the mobs run after your slaves? If so.. lets say your go to button for all to dps is "f"... then you can f.eks assign the same macro for the warrior/tank only, to a different button, f.eks "left alt + f". This way the tank gets a brief time alone to aggro the mobs (spam left alt + f) and position it/them, before all characters starts attacking normally (time to spam "f" again).

    I have my MMMMP group set up so that if I'm attacking something with my single-target DPS mapped key, the mages cast their things and the priest does not heal, she just becomes a manual healer via Clique+Grid2. If I'm using the AoE DPS mapped key, the priest will maintain bubble, renew, and spam heals on @targettarget; if the priest doesn't have a target and I'm spamming AoE, it does nothing and reverts to manual click healing as above. Works pretty well as a semi-automatic, least-effort-per-reward setup for me. I also follow Peregrine's leveling guide as nodoze mentioned.
