dual boxing continued

in the past, i have dual boxed occasionally, since i have 2 accounts.

however, faced with the prospect of a ton of alts now at L84 (after that rush for brewfest trinkets) and all having to take a trip to Twilight Highlands (TH), it makes sense to dual box to reduce the boredom of doing the same set of quests over and over again.

so i have gone over the list of 84s on firetree (6, so 3 pairs) and jubei’thos (4, so 2 pairs) and matched them up, usually a dps (warriors, rogues, dks) with a healing class (priests, pallys)

that way, the dps can basically kill non stop. and kill very fast too, since they dont need to stop to bandage/eat.

the next is to ensure that both toons are on the same set of TH quests. while most have just hit L84 and hence are at the Hero’s Call starting quest for TH, those that arent will need to match up with their paired alt.

fortunately, i have not got to the stage where they are already questing in TH. so that makes it easier. the last time i did dual box questing for TH, it was with Rhoanin and Persi, and that was messy cos Persi hit 84 earlier than Rhoanin, and was already in TH for farming ores. so i had to stop working on Persi’s quests and get Rhoanin up to speed.

i’m gonna document how to dual box the TH quests (at least until the SW portal in TH opens) in a following post, since i have to follow the same procedure 5 times! this means knowing which quests are kill and which quests are loot as well as the optimal sequence of doing quests.

one disadvantage of dual boxing is that i usually cant queue for LFG, which i like to do so as a distraction from the boredom of questing/farming non st0p, cos it wont be fair to the rest of the dungeon group when the 2 toons are not performing at the same rate.
