Your argument fails. If I do an instance with 4 other characters and we all finish the quests, what is then the difference from me controlling one or more of the characters compared to other people controlling their characters on their accounts? None whatsoever. And there are no arguments against that. It all comes down to two simple things. 1) I pay for the accounts2) I am in control of the charactersNow, if I were to have a BOT control the other accounts for me, that would be cheating. But now I am in control of their actions, and I am therefore not violating the EULA nor the TOS. Thus, I'm not cheating. The fact that YOU think it's cheating matters little. In fact, it matters not at all.

By that definition, I guess the following things would also be cheating:- Picking up herbalism and mining and using a macro to switch between the tracking one and another while flying the same route. (You are flying ONE path to get money with TWO gathering professions)- Leveling enchanting on one character and mailing greens from other characters to that one to DE. (You level ONE profession to get materials from many)- Waiting until you have all the quests for a dungeon before doing it so you can finish all the quests at once instead of doing them one at a time as you acquire them.Beside that fact, just because you are playing 4 characters or something doesn't mean you only have to do things once. With the exception of doing kill quests, killing mobs for XP, and PvPing, multiboxers have to do just as much work as the rest of us. While I am questing in Nagrand picking up my 15 pieces of poop for the cherry quest, the guy playing 4 characters is picking up 60. When I am grinding mats for one epic crafting pattern, the guy playing 3 characters is grinding triple the materials. While I am killing all the mobs I need at exactly the pace that they respawn, the guy playing 2 characters is AFK waiting for respawns. Aside from any minor benefit you get in leveling speed, multiboxers are faced with the disadvantage of extra complex controls and slower PvP reaction times. Very few multiboxers are even competitive on the PvP field because of the extra difficulty that it adds. In fact, Aelli from smolderthorn is pretty much the only one that I have seen achieve any sort of PvP rank that is notable (Xzin did get 5 Warlord mages but that was when it was just a time grind).
