"It doesn't seem possible to grind/quest/instance/pvp with two toons at the same time, much less five."I can assure you, it is very possible :) I managed Warlord on all 5 at the same time.You have to keep in mind that out of what, 8 million people playing WoW that perhaps a few hundred are 5 boxing. Of those, perhaps only a small subset actually PvP with their setup. I happen to be one of those players - and I greatly enjoy it. I don't expect multiboxing WoW to go away anytime soon. The amount of expense, effort, thought and setting up that needs to be done is pretty intense. Plus, there is no real inherent advantage over a well tuned 5 man group. In fact, you have LESS coordination and with the BC aoe effects, plenty of things to bring you down.Blizzard loves it of course. I pay $150 per month.In ANY game there will be people looking to find an edge. It is human nature. Some people get tricked out with purples. Some learn how to play their character in depth. Others practice teamwork and coordination. I multibox. I do it within the confines of the game though and in my opinion, I play by the rules. I have received numerous official opinions that confirm my beliefs. I own and never share my accounts (I leveled them myself) and I never sell gold or farm it. Bliz knows that - believe me, it is NOT worth my time to farm gold and sell it.In short - I play the game in a way that may be a bit different than your average player. But I fail to see why that is so "wrong" or against the rules. I still have 5 characters to level up, 5 characters to gear up and 5 repair bills to pay. You better believe that I expect to roll with all 5.
