    Default Back to MBxing - Some come back questions

    Hello everyone and happy 2023!

    I'm an old timer multiboxer and I'm thinking on returning to 5boxing and WOW.

    I see there are safe solutions around thanks to the effort and the dedication of some.
    It's truly appreciated, thank you.

    So I'm thinking on using WOB and MAMA, I see some comments on how hard (impossible?) it is to follow the dragon but well, I mostly want to dungeon with them.

    I have a few questions if someone might be willing to help:
    - can we queue normal/heroic with a full group in group finder and get teleported to the dungeon?
    - if yes, can we queue with 5BM hunters? (because there's no formal tank/healer)
    - I'm not looking for anything complex for the time being, what is "hot" in MBxing 5 of the same class nowadays? I had lots of fun with 5BM hunters, quick and dirty dungeons, I had a lot of fun with 5 Pala Protec, slow and clean, but I really would like to know if someone is doing ok with non-formal groups (I miss boomkin tank and 4 shaman so much...)

    I've also read that some world quests are not doable in group but I see some interesting farming for wrathion and sabellion and any other elite zones.

    Thank you and have a great day

    there is a guy posting videos on YouTube multi boxing 5 bm hunters on retail, he's hit most of the low level dungeons with this set up. I'm totally out of the loop on retail so I can give you any advice but I think they YouTuber is called Bro, might be worth checking out his videos.

    I'm finding that even with wrath pretty much anything is viable low level because of the skew on the mechanics compared to the skills and talents available.

    Be careful with boxing. I've never done it with software, but I was flagged as a bot last week while boxing on 6 accounts. All 6 were permabanned and it took me 5 tickets to get someone to look into my appeal. All of my accounts are using for the AH, rarely will they ever talk to anyone. I remember someone coming up to my character and tried to RP with me. Since I responded, they were able to report me for more than just my name being offensive. I tihnk this one interaction is what triggered the reports and then ultimately the bans. I'm unbanned now, but I think Warden might be targeting anyone with a lot of clients running. Make sure you don't keep items in your mail for too long, you never know when you'll get hit.

    I used isboxer for dungeons in the early days of wrath classic and no ban to date. I assume avoiding people reporting you is the most important thing because Warden works in mysterious ways So I'd just run them in dungeons independently and then use broadcasting inside...but I fully expect to ride a banwave some day...

    ...for the better.

    Yeah I am so tempted to try it again. Turn off everything until I enter instanced content and then turn ISBoxer on. I would go into it setting everything up assuming it would get flagged and banned eventually... but may be worth the $300ish investment. I mean if I got away with it for like 6 months I would be incredibly happy and feel fulfilled. and there is always the chance I get away with it

    Boy i miss multi boxing WoW something fierce. Playing 1 toon sucks, and alt tabing sucks worse.

    play with the mouse over way, its still pretty easy my team will face roll most heroics now, I'm about to dip my toe into the heroic +, I honestly can't even remember what it was like to broadcast anymore. I was seriously thinking about this the other day how/if it would improve my experience and I honestly don't think it would, I'm so capable of running the characters independently of each other that a lot of the mechanics that were a challenge for boxing seem trivial now because I just adapted to them playing everyone individually. I think the only major difference would be for teams bigger than 5, raids would be a nice challenge for sure with 10 characters so that's a no go. Melee team maybe? Even still I'm quite confidant it could be done with mouse over. Channeled casts like drain life/mind flay break follow so a team of warlocks and priests is bit annoying having to re follow all the time.

    I'm honestly enjoying multi boxing far more than I ever did with broadcasting, its made me work out a lot more things and forced me to get better as a player. I'm constantly trying to work out what the most optimal team is, I'm convinced its not just prot and 4 shaman, however I do feel a class that can remove potions is vital for the team, my priest/dk/3mage team suffers pretty hard from not having that. Give it a go mate, never know might prefer it
