Dualboxing the Simple Way

“Multiboxing is a term used to denote one user playing multiple accounts simultaneously.”

The wonderful world of Multiboxing is not for the faint of heart. However, running two WoW clients on the same PC with two monitors is much more manageable!

A friend of mine is kind enough to loan me his DeathKnight (or any character) while he’s AFK.  So I have to log on and abuse…erm–use his DK to clear some Stockades with my latest alt: Mage! I’ve grinded my 3rd alt from level 15 up to 24 (although I did quest for about one level in between).

My computer setup is simple (not a true multibox setup in my opinion):

Two monitors – Primary – 23” Widescreen LCD at 1920x1080 & Secondary – 19” Widescreen LCD at 1440x900.  Running in the center is my PC which is equipped with a AMD Phenom quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM and a GeForce 9800 GT 1024MB graphics card.  It’s not the most powerful thing out there but it definitely gets the job done.

If I had a second WoW account and wanted to truly multibox (using multiple PCs) then I have the software and WoW.com articles at my disposal to do so — That day has not yet come. 
Until then, I’ll run two (or more) WoW clients on the same PC and use my two kick ass monitors to back me up for a full view on both games at all times.
