    Yea idk, I think while I'm neutral on multi-boxing, I think I'm against having a single command for all four accounts. Just my thoughts on it, but I think I'm going to have to side as against this, kind of takes the fun out of it for people who use just one account.
    Not sure how this effects your level of fun. If anything you can actually try it yourself and have more fun? I encourage everyone to at least try it out, the 1-week trial for the program is free. If you dont want to, it shouldn't make your experience of the game any less fun.



    Considering D3 is purely centered around loot and the gathering of said loot, it defiantly makes it less fun watching people use 4 accounts while only having to try as hard as playing one account by using 1 key stroke for 4 different characters abilities. That's just where I say I draw the line; You can have as many accounts as you want up, but in order to execute commands you should have to switch to each individual account to do so.

    This is interesting.

    I haven't really researched Multiboxing at all. Let me see if I have the gist of it.

    He has 4 different Diablo accounts that are all playing together in the same game? He uses a separate program that allows all 4 characters to be controlled by the same mouse and keyboard. So he is getting 4 sets of loot from killing any monster? All he has to do is switch instances to pick up loot if he wants it?

    All the hate towards multiboxing is just jellyness. Also it's not an instant way to wealth and legendaries. If you would invest the money for 3 additional copies of D3 directly into gold you would get 600m gold or so instantly if you buy it in AH, more if you buy from third party. And that doesn't count the money for the multibox software nor the additional hardware needed to paaly efficiently. Also Inigo doesn't just equip one char with good gear and all the other with crap stuff with max resists. All his toons are decently geared and he constantly seeks for upgrades for all of his toons. So in this sense he has to invest four times the money to get perfect gear for all his chars, which is the goal of the game anyways. So no reason for all the hate.

    I agree though that multiboxing with just one good equipped toon while keeping the others decked in survival stats and on follow is kinda lame.

    Since the site won't let me PM you, would you mind PM'ing me? I have a few questions about your setup Inigo!

    Thanks in advance.

    Nice to see some Act 2 farming. Great work, Inigo Montoya. I'm still not happy with you though, because, of course, you killed my father, so prepare to die.

    When people say multiboxing is cheating, they're screaming I cannot afford to do it so that guy who can shouldn't be allowed to.

    Correct. It takes the effort of controlling one character and the payoff is you get 4x the loot, and you kill faster since monster HP isn't doubled per character in the game.

    this little part highlighted is kinda vague, i can elaborate a little by saying its not quite "simple" to just push one button and they all do the same thing, unless each toon is the same class and spec. i'll agree that's easy, but the challenge and fun of setting it up and making it work is by playing different classes while multiboxing. I did this in wow to great effect... it was fun as shit, but EXTREMELY difficult to setup and play well. :) its fun to multibox, its a challenge to play it efficiently and well given the restraints of the system and what not... plus, you still have to gear up 4 toons together... 4 times the loot for 4 times the toons... is just like playing with 3 other friends and sharing every drop you get.... i know some guilds/groups of friends that do this... just because one person does it doesn't make it ANY different it just means one guy gets the loot he needs to deck out all his characters. most multiboxers aren't millionares in game... yes they get lots of loot, but we also spend 4 times the gold to deck our toons all max out :P all this hate is extremely off topic when the whole point of the thread is about farming act 2. :) tho i do agree that the OP really shoulda left out the part about multiboxing if he wanted any type of credit for the "run name" Bro, you're bringing multiboxing out to the forefront and basically rubbing it in everyone's nose that YOU can farm up 600 elites an hour... why BRING the hate like that... lol think a little man ! :) <3 ghonosyph(avid multiboxer since 2005)

    If they fix "on kill" effects, I'm tempted to run four Archon wizards.

    Just don't run 4 SNS wizards. You'll lag out and die on every elite group, or so I hear.

    Just that I need ten regular messages on the forumboard before I can PM members - It's probably not an error or anything, I'm just lurking too much!
