There’s never been a better time to multibox in wow. It’s easier then ever to level a team of characters and gear them out, with faster leveling and greater rewards.
If you’ve been playing WoW for a while you might be getting tired of raiding, pvp, or arenas. You’ve leveled countless alts to 80 through the same content. WoW multiboxing makes the experience of playing wow, new and fresh again. Managing multiple characters at once and working out the optimal casting rotations and key setups is a new challenge you haven’t had in a long time. The reward is when you absolutely destroy a five man dungeon or mop up in a battleground.
WoW multiboxing is great for the loot fiend. Running five mans you get to keep all the loot and emblems for yourself, and gear up your team extremely quickly. You’ll also be able to go dungeon farming whenever you like, on your terms.
If you want to effectively multibox you’ll need some sort of software to help you control your characters. Wow multiboxing software is allowed by blizzard as long as it isn’t a bot. Trying to multibox without multiboxing software is practically impossible (imagine trying to switch windows by hand and cast spells with multiple characters).
Most people doing wow multiboxing use macros and key broadcasting to manage their characters effectively. Basic macros like follow and focus are perfect for multiboxing and are much more precise then trying to send movement keys or TAB to all of your characters. As a multiboxer you’ll soon learn the best macros for doing trading, releasing your corpse, or vendoring. These macros can easily be found with google on multiboxing websites.
What’s the disadvantage of multiboxing? You’ll have to pay for every account you want to multibox a character on. That means 5 world of warcraft accounts, so this is a significant cost, but still much less so then many other hobbies, like golfing where equipment and memberships can cost hundreds of dollars.
Overall though wow multiboxing is a great hobby, that will make world of warcraft feel like a new game. With new challenges, and greater rewards, you’ll have a great time. If you just want to try it out, sign up for some world of warcraft trial accounts.
