viewtopic.php?f=80&t=5226I'd recommend playing 3 toons each even if the dont touch the character and its a minimized window.. later game you'll want to play 3, even if it's a buff bot to begin with that pocket chanter may become your dps charmer when you get up in level. You'll enjoy it here.
I say this from experience, I started with a 2 box and then had to go back and level a 3rd when I was in my late 50s.
The majority of players do box at least two. I would even go as far to say the majority box three.
Advantages to boxing:
Moving items around easily
Not needing to ask for help for many tasks
Being able to buff, heal, port, rez (etc) your own characters
Being able to power-level future characters
Not having to /random loot if you kill a mob by yourself
Two people can make a full group to take on more difficult targets
Two people can take advantage of grouping bonus'
If you can't find a group, you can still gain experience
Gives you more flexibility to play odd hours or afk often if needed
Cost of spells for multiple characters
Cost of gear for multiple characters
The argument against boxing is usually related to socialization and community. Global auction and ooc has solved some of that issue. Guild chat can be social. All are welcome in the leveling guild, DING. If a player actively (/tells) seeks a group, grouping is most often successful.
If you're coming from a strictly single box server, boxing may seem foreign. If you haven't boxed before, I suggest you at least give it a try.
If you have never boxed before, sit two of the characters down in a safe area within experience range. Start near a zone line, so you can easily zone all three if you get into trouble. Use them to heal buff between fights. When comfortable, start adding in a second character during combat. When comfortable with two, add the third.
We have quite a few husband / wife teams on the server. Glad to have a few more! If they want a female perspective, let me know, I'll be glad to chat with them.Hazel,
Thanks for helping a friend I dragged over to P2002 "Lowkust" he is also from P99 and Live on Cazic. He will invite me to "Ding" on Friday as were both off, we both will normally be online on the weekends.
Ps.. Our wifes are intrigued, they both played with us on live oh so long ago..
