So, are you multiboxing with multiple characters of the same class? What class/es have you tried this with? It seems much easier to do this with 3/4 casters than 3/4 melee.

I have kept to the same class for simplicity. Ranged classes are far, far easier than melee due to the fact that all of the characters roll around on /follow and would be outside melee range for the most part etc. So ranged just means it is far less problematic for this style of multiboxing.~T

Turp my recommendation for melee classes is to roll up (account # -1) of melee and powerlevel them through instance grinding with an 80. It's hilariously fast.

@TurpIf your doing 4 melee just pull past the mob on the main, then spin around and your followers are behind the mob facing him but in melee range. I usually do a melee and a healing class, I've never multi boxed with more than 2 characters.

Just wanted to point out Octopus is fantastic for a TWO PC setup, not just a single one. There's absolutely no physical KVM required. With Ocotopus setup as server on the main PC and client on the slave PC both monitors appear to belong to the same PC. Mouse off the side of one PC's monitor and the mouse seamlessly appears on the second monitor. No need for a second keyboard or mouse for anything. By the way, the best part of multi-boxing, IMHO, is dailies. There are many, many dailies that take the same time with 2-3 players/accounts as it does with one. Pulling in a thousand gold in a couple hours per day is very nice.Other than for the cheap PvP reasons I don't see the point in rolling around with more than one of any particular class at a time. It's so much fun leveling two completely separate classes together. I'm currently doing warrior/mage, DK/lock, and Pally/Hunter.
