10 Boxing WoW – Feedback Requested!

10 Boxing WoW - Feedback Requested!  | read this item

I am thinking about 10 boxing again. The last time I did this was when WOTLK first came out, and I rolled 10x Shaman, or 9x Shaman 1x Resto Druid.

Firstly, as you guys probably know, I love leveling a new team. In fact, it is probably my favorite thing to do in WoW overall. Running old school instances just reinvigorates the feeling of why I fell in love with this game.

So I am thinking of doing a 10x box team with a focus around AV and that 25 man Continue Reading

Hey all,

Just a quick note that I am going to be streaming some new teams with a new project goal: Lots of multiboxed characters!  The stream will be starting TONIGHT @ 7pm CST (or earlier)!

This new team will be focused around a new concept I like to call multi-multiboxing. 2 people, multiboxing together, forming the 5 man group. With that said, I’d like to introduce Kevin aka Chamassa as we begin 2 new multiboxing teams.

  • 5x Shaman (3x Tim, 2x Kevin)
  • 3x Hunter (Tim) 2x Druid (Kevin)

We will be leveling these teams from 1 to 85, doing instances Continue Reading

Multiboxing Dire Maul – 46 minutes of awesomeness

Multiboxing Dire Maul - 46 minutes of awesomeness  | read this item

In this video the 3x Multiboxers of Tim hit up Dire Maul.  DM (yes, DM, not deadmines, that is VC) is one of my favorite instances.  The instance is really large, however, you don’t feel like time is wasted.  The bosses are pretty meh, but the swirling environment is pretty fun.  Plus there is a room with a big giant tree that kicks doors down which is pretty boss.

One multiboxing note for this instance is to be careful for all the stairs and twisty tunnels.  The biggest enemy of a multiboxer is the environment (stairs, doors, etc) as you can often get stuck.

Watch how we pwn it up in this 46 minute long youtube video in High Def 1080/720!! Continue Reading

I’ve gone ahead and finally created a new multiboxing team in Cataclysm, on a new server, and will be streaming the entire leveling process, all the way to 85!

Some details:

Server:   US-Lothar (Horde) PVE
Guild:   (to be determined)
My Main:   Gobtima (Priest)
My Alt:   Gobtim (level 85 Mage)

The new team I am building is 3x Priests.  I plan on leveling as Shadow, with dual-spec to Disc.  I’m very excited to see how well 3x Vampiric heals do in LFD instances!

I will be creating a guild that will server not only as an awesome guild for multiboxers, but also as a support tool for people who want to multibox themselves, who have questions, and overall need guidance. Guild chat will be there to help.

I plan on streaming this character all the time, and eventually will post a schedule.  For now, the stream will be live @ 8am CST February 24th Continue Reading

Our very own Janus created an amazing video of multiboxing Blackrock Caverns.  A quote from the man himself:

So I decided to see how far my Wrath-equipped, level 80 team could make it in Blackrock Caverns. I had started leveling in Mount Hyjal and ran across the NPC that grants entrance to the instance. I hopped into the teleporter and found myself in Blackrock Caverns.

Per Janus, below is a general breakdown of the encounters and my team composition. It is not the cleanest execution, as I was shooting this “as is”, with no to little preparation, and all these encounters were completely new to me

Team composition:
- Janus : protection pally
- Adonis: elemental shammy
- Bellenus: moonkin
- Aurora: Arcane mage
- Cymara: Holy priest

Team level: 80 (dinged 81 after completing this dungeon ! YAY! )
Gear: Full Wrath heroic dungeon gear

Speedracing 1-85 Goblin - Help Tim Pick The Class!  | read this item

Upon the release of Cataclysm, I (Tim) am going to be racing a single character, a goblin, from level 1 to level 85, as fast as I can. I will be doing this for approx. 12-16 hours a day, every day, until 85, 100% streamed on JTV. I literally will be powering as FAST as I can, following the details of a leveling strategy I built in advance to race things as fast as possible.

I will be leveling this on a PVE server so PVP doesn’t interrupt me as I will be making a video of the entire process. Then I intend to server transfer it to Blackrock. Also, I expect this race of leveling to take a week or so with 7 days in a row, 12-16hrs a day.

So the question is: Which class should I race to 85?

Please vote on which class I should pick in this thread.

For the first time we are going to do a general Pwnboxer Q+A to get everybody involved on where Pwnboxer is at in general, as well as some ideas you might have, or requests, for features.

Saturday 11/20/10 @ 10am CST @ http://justin.tv/multiboxing

Bring any suggestions you have, bugs you encounter, and general thoughts about Pwnboxer to the stream.  No matter how crazy your idea is, I’d love to hear it.

The reason for this chat is that Pwnboxer, to me personally, has reached a state where I find it absolutely perfect for my every day multiboxing needs.  However, I just one person out of many, and Pwnboxer really is about the general multiboxing community as a whole, so having YOUR feedback on how Pwnboxer is for you is of utmost importance.

Some possible idea subjects:

  • New ways of doing mouse broadcasting?
  • New ways of managing key broadcasting?
  • Non-multiboxing features (Eg, the Google ping it has now)
  • Video streaming built-in?
  • Social/community ideas?

Everybody is welcome, including those who use Pwnboxer, those who do not, and everybody in between.

Team Howster – Multiboxing ICC Marrowgar

Team Howster - Multiboxing ICC Marrowgar  | read this item

Howster is back with another video, this time tackling the yet-to-be multiboxing elusive Icecrown Citadel.  Our first video covers Marrowgar!

A quote on his strategy for multiboxing ICC Marrowgar:

All dps and healers gets behind marrowgar and dps/heal like they should.. If they are too far back they get hit by the fire on the ground, so just a little closer than that. Once a while Marrowgar will target a random raid memeber and cast a bonespike on him. When he did this I target that bone spike with a macro and kill it.

After a while he starts to whirlwind on random raid members, meanwhile he also cast this fire things on the ground (in this video i tried to avoid the fire, but we found it easier to just stand still and just heal through it. I use my 3 shamans to chain heal when this happens and my druid healing the way he should). After the whirlwind its back to start with the bone spikes again..

Looking for a US Multiboxing guild? Look no further!  | read this item

We’ve all seen it asked before:

“Awesome Rogue level 45, looking for guild that is interested in leveling, raiding, PVP, and Multiboxing”

Wait…  a Multiboxing guild?

If you haven’t heard already, Blackrock (US – Horde) has a guild <BUT MOM IM MULTIBOXING> which is very active and very much a Multiboxing friendly guild (and solo play friendly of course)!  The guild has been around for around a year and has seen literally hundreds of multiboxers, brand new to the whole scene, start new teams, ask questions, and learn everything there is to know.

Right now the guild has dozens of Druids logged in often at any time, lots of Shamans, Mages, Priests, Hunters, you name it.  As of writing this post there are 21 Druids across 5 teams logged in right now.

To sum it up:

  • Server: Blackrock
  • Faction: Horde
  • Guild Leader: Timboxa
  • Multiboxing Friendly?:     YES!
  • Soloplay Friendly?:    YES!
  • How to apply?:    Just send Timboxa a PM in-game, or PM Lsta, or Pawslavea, or Byriaan, or Stompera.   Any multiboxer is welcome to join.  Just create (or transfer) your team and say hello in a PM.  Alternatively you can do a “/who but mom im” and ask a few people for a ginvite!

Note: The guild has a guild bank that allows a new multiboxer the ability to withdraw some funds to help start their new team :)

Our very own Ebony has released an amazing video of what it is like to Pwn Alterac Valley with 5x Warlocks.  She said that some of the wins are giving her 100,000 XP and primarily is being used as a method to level up to 70 and beyond.

The strategy looks to be ginormously fun.  I’ll summarize it for you:

  • Step #1  -  Run towards enemy
  • Step #2  -  Apply 592 million DOTs
  • Step #3 -  Run towards next enemy
  • Note:  In the event you should run into a large number of enemies, simply bust out 5 Infernals, and dominate them all.

New 5 man Druid Team tonight @ 3pm CST!  | read this item

Hey all,

Just a heads up that I am yet again starting a new team, and this time I plan on sticking to it!

3pm CST tonight @ Multiboxing in World of Warcraft on Justin.tv

The goal is to create a 5 man druid team and roll them all the way into Cataclysm and have a blast.

The team should be great at PVE w/heroics with 1x Druid tanking, and 4x Druids DPSing/Healing.

The team should also be a blast at Battlegrounds/PVP due to massive amounts of starfire/moonfires/STARFALL and overall sneaking up on people in kitty form stealth and going boom boom on them.

A note: My first level 80 team was in fact boomkins, and my first team I created while developing Pwnboxer was actually a level 70 team (BC) of Boomkins. Overall they have always been my favorite to play so I’m really looking forward to this!

There have been many new additions to Patch 13 including the map publishing feature, but as with previous Situation Reports, we wanted to take some time to go into some of the balance changes in particular and explain a bit more about them.

In this patch we are looking to address several balance issues that the community has discovered over the last few weeks. We are also addressing some of the zerg units and abilities that don’t see a lot of use in competitive games. These changes are big enough that we think it’s likely there will be further balance changes to these units as we learn more about how they are playing in the game.

Solomani is at it again with another multiboxing Hunter video, this time he is multiboxing Deadmines.    He has this to say about his team:

All 5x Hunters. No healers. Comments list any issues I had in the run. Will hopefully get ST up this weekend.

5x BM. Builds are similar but not identical. I found talents I normally wouldn’t take or find useful solo are worthwhile for 5x hunter (like the improved heal and any party booster talent). I toyed with the idea of mixing BM and Marks but it would just reduce efficiency too much IMO.

Take a look at the multiboxing Deadmines video Continue Reading

Solomani, one of our forum posts here on the Multiboxing Forums, has been creating some fantastic videos of his journey through World of Warcraft multiboxing Hunters!

Solomani said, “One thing to note I haven’t bought *anything* with these guys. All their kit are from drops or quests. That’s another part of my personal challenge – to resist pimping them out. The only thing I buy is food for the pets, repairs, ammo and the mounts.”

Here is a video of Wailing Caverns being multiboxed by 5 Hunters.

Cataclysm Class Information Coming!

Cataclysm Class Information Coming!  | read this item

Directly from the horses mouth:

Beginning Wednesday, April 7 we will begin releasing class previews containing an overview of some of the changes currently being planned for each of the 10 World of Warcraft classes. The type of information you can expect from these posts are a list of the new spells from 80-85, the new passive mastery bonuses for all talent trees, a brief outline of some of the talent changes we’re currently planning, and in some cases new low level spells for select classes.

These changes will by no means be comprehensive, and are subject to change between now and the launch of the expansion. It’s also important to understand that some classes are currently further along in the development process than others, and as a result the amount of information will vary from class to class. Please do not let this frustrate you should your class be amongst those which are on the “lighter” side of things, as all classes will receive the same level of design attention before the expansion is released. Additionally we’ll be providing more information for all classes, especially as we move into the beta phase. Continue Reading

World of Warcraft Client Patch 3.3.3

PvP

  • The amount of Honor awarded for an Honorable Kill has been increased by 100% for characters of all levels. Since all Honor is awarded based on a conversion rate from Honorable Kills, this change will effectively double the amount of Honor received from Honorable Kills, or for completing Battleground and Wintergrasp objectives; however, the amount of experience gained from completing Battleground objectives and the amount of Honor rewarded for completing each Wintergrasp quest remain unchanged.
  • Battlegrounds
    • The Random Battleground system has been added! Similar to the Random Dungeon system in the Dungeon Finder, players can now queue for a random Battleground. Continue Reading

Intel i7-980X Reviewed: Live video of Tim unboxing and setting up the I7-980X CPU!

Intel i7-980X Reviewed: Live video of Tim unboxing and setting up the I7-980X CPU!  | read this item

For your PC nuts out there, today we will be doing a special live video review of the newest, absolutely most monsterous gaming CPU on the market today:  The Intel I7-980X CPU.  This processor is the highest end desktop CPU that money can buy.  With 6 CPU cores, with a standard 3.3GHZ clockspeed, and fully overclockable, this CPU will melt your heart.

How will this CPU fare for multiboxing?  Our guess is that you could run 40+ World of Warcrafts on a single PC using this processor.

Previously Tim (the founder of this site as well as the owner of the Pwnboxer multiboxing software) was using the voraciously fast i7 975 Extreme Edition as his gaming CPU.  Don’t get us wrong, that processor is a beast.  However, if the 975EE is a beast, than the 980X is a solar system.  Yes, it is all that and a bag of black holes!

Tonight at approx. 4pm CST, Tim will be streaming live then full unboxing of this i7-980X CPU and will be installing it into his gaming system.  You can watch this stream live here:   Justin.tv/Multiboxing Continue Reading

Tim has a new team of multiboxed World of Warcraft characters:  4x Priests  (Discipline)  1x Pally (Protection)

The goal of this team is to do absolutely insane AOE damage in instance pulls while staying relatively unscathed.  Individually, a Priest using Holy Nova to DPS in an instanced would typically be laughed at while the other players click confirmation on the group kick option.  However, when four Priests are multiboxed together with a Protection Paladin, the end result is nothing less than amazing.

Below is a video of the carnaged wrecked in the first Burning Crusade instance:  Ramparts

Here is the general strategy and a 35 minute video: Continue Reading

Blizzard’s Eyonix reviews the upcoming “Mastery” system

eyonix
Blizzard's Eyonix reviews the upcoming "Mastery" system  | read this item

Last week, we gave you an early look at the changes we’re making to the stat system in World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, and explained how these changes will ultimately provide players with more interesting gear choices and make stats easier to understand. Today we’d like to go into more detail about a brand-new feature that’s an integral part of this overhaul: the Mastery system, a set of new game mechanics designed to allow players to become better at what makes their chosen talent tree cool or unique. With this system, we want to accomplish three things: give players more freedom in how they allocate talent points, simplify some of the “kitchen sinky” talents that try to do too much at once, and add a new stat to high-level gear that makes you better at your chosen role.

Cataclysm Stat & System Changes

wow-cataclysm-logo-580
Cataclysm Stat & System Changes  | read this item

As many of you know from panels at last year’s BlizzCon and posts here on the forums since then, Cataclysm will bring about major changes to familiar character stats such as Intellect, Armor Penetration, Defense, and others, ultimately designed to make the effects of stats more easily understandable and make gear choices more interesting. As these changes will have a significant impact on how stats work and relate to one another, today we wanted to offer you a closer look at exactly what’s in store and explain some of the rationale before Cataclysm arrives.

The most obvious question these changes raise is “Why are stats being changed, and why now?” As the game has matured, we’ve run into increasingly complex issues with the current stat system. Many stats are inherently confusing, and the way they interrelate can feel convoluted. Attack Power, for example, currently translates to damage, but so does Armor Penetration. Defense provides five different statistical benefits of varying utility. Mana regeneration involves understanding multiple stats and rules and often ends up being irrelevant anyway. In addition, the difference between a “good stat” for a class and a “bad stat” can be extreme. Some casters want Haste but not Crit; hunters want Armor Penetration but not Haste. There are other overarching issues, as well, such as Intellect not being very exciting for casters despite it being a core stat — and these are just a few examples. Continue Reading

Ualaa’s Alchemy


(Transmute Guide)


Introduction
While we can take a single toon and fly about gathering mineral or herbs, the same as any other one-boxer… and possibly even have a few toons doing the same at one time, switching between them. This is not really that much more efficient a means to make gold then we could do as single boxers.

Dailies are a decent method to compound our extra characters into more gold then a one-boxer makes, from doing the same thing as one character. It requires a route which is based off of either kills or drops where each toon can loot from every corpse. My current route takes 45 minutes on the first team and an hour on the other two teams, and makes 1100g in the process. But dailies are repetitive and boring, even if they are consistent. It is getting rather hard to make myself run the route each day. Continue Reading

Imagine playing WoW on 1000mb/sec fiber optic connection, rolling around with 9ms ping times.  Well guess what?  Google wants to give it to just me you.

Google is planning to launch an experiment that we hope will make Internet access better and faster for everyone. We plan to test ultra-high speed broadband networks in one or more trial locations across the country. Our networks will deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today over 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections. Continue Reading

Cataclysm – Everybody wants Goblins? No, we don’t think so.

Blizzard has a nifty little poll up about which character race/class combination people are most looking forward to.  The results might surprise you!

cata-vote

One big thing I was thinking about is Worgen PVP Warriors with their 70% sprint for 6 seconds.  This is going to be insanely powerful.  Thoughts?

The vote is constantly ongoing and can be seen here.

Blizzard changes Lich King weapon drops!  | read this item

Although this probably won’t affect too many of us in the near future, Blizzard is already tinkering with many of the stats supplied by the Lich King’s weapon drops. A community manager on the Korean site posted about upcoming changes to one Lich King-10 and four Lich King-25 weapons, and Boubouille’s posted a translation with help from user Locriani. A lot of raiders had been surprised at the itemization decisions, and as a raiding healer, I’ve seen a lot of commentary concerning the uninspiring presence of MP5 on the Royal Scepter of Terenas II. Blizzard’s specifically addressing these concerns. Continue Reading

What is multiboxing?

Multiboxing is a term used to denote one user playing multiple accounts simultaneously. Typically you will have 1 player controlling multiple characters at the same time.

For example, in World of Warcraft, 1 person may be controlling 5 Shamans at the same time.
