Is This Laziness or a Nifty Idea?

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

I was rolling though some random WoW blogs today and saw two posts by Exanimo of 'Full Time WoW Addict' that struck my fancy: 2Accounts1Pc - part1 and Making gold with a second account. I have been mulling over issues that I'll have to deal with when I even get around to getting back into WoW.

  • One I hate leveling. I have two characters at 70, that I love. (the mage more, but that druid is fun times)

  • My mage is great dps, and my druid is too (but conversely has been told they were a great healer).

  • I hate farming gold/mats/herbs. But my druid is my farmer character (was herbalist/skinning, then dropped skinning for mining...so herb/mining).

This idea, or dual boxing could solve this and many other issues. Like:

  • Faster leveling due to 2 instead of one. PvP may hinder this but overall could be faster for group quests. And two people at 80 at the same time saves time, instead of individually leveling them, gearing them, ect.

  • Double the monetary gain.

  • Faster travel time due to mage ports, and less down time due to mage/druid pew pew and healing.

  • Recall that post for the ZG mount? Way easier this way.

  • Can roll a DK on either account and power level myself. XD

Since I was planning to upgrade my old (like 6+ years old pc) anyway before I set back into WoW, this seems like a fun plan. Two characters, rulling the world. Muhaha...*coughchoke*...aha...yeah.

Speaking of laziness.. still need to put up part 2 ;)
But RL and officerstuff has taken up quite a bit of my time lately...

But on topic: My duo-box project failed, after many tweaks the framerate was doable when playing 2 accounts on 1 pc but the interface to control 2 toons at the same time slowed me down to a frustrating pace. I didn't like it anyway, so regret buying that second account a bit.

Well I was thinking of doing sort of how my ex bf would do with his allie account: He'd minimize the game and play his horde peoples, but randomly switches if he sees allie friends over there, or to snip at gankers (>.< darn pvp servers lol). I know he didn't haveta buy a second box set, just using the codes from his 1st set, by of course paying the extra $15. Then again the screens sometimes would pixiliate over top each other (he thinks it was something to do with the game, not his pc). But I think the idea is doable as many people have done it with others accounts, the pc just has to be able to handle both running. I myself may settle for a second screen and see how it goes.*
Ironically the keyboard you suggested is like the one he uses but his is the one with the little screen in the middle.

*Well when I'm not broke lol

*Forgot to note: if the multibox programs do just suck that hard I could just have one on follow leeching, and the other pew pewing.
