    You can still do that. Doesn't even take lots of effort.

    Last time I multiboxed was for leveling toons in TBC so I must be "quite" outdated so let see if I get this right or not.

    There's no way to multiplex mouse inputs and , even if there were , the location of a node is different for every client ( the character vector is different) so a multiboxer druid needs to , individually , set the active window in every client and right click node.

    In the end this druid multiboxer only multiplexes the /follow command at the start of the session....and that's all.

    So how is this gonna end multigathering? he is just gonna press the follow macro individually on each window and that's it.

    That's the problem he has with new policy.

    So:

    A) Multibox does not work now the way it worked 12 years ago

    OR

    B) How the fuck is this gonna stop multiboxers gatherers?

    Good move from Blizzard. I never would have guessed. Now it's time to do something against the 24/7 boosting.

    Aye.
    Perhaps i have been unlucky, seeing how often i encountered them, but i'm glad to see the end of them.

    The question is slightly wrong:
    It should be How is this gonna stop bot gatherers?
    People are mad at multiboxer who are real people and play the game but are not mad about bots who plays the game 24/24 with 0 effort.

    In 2 months these people will be mad for bots if they will be there or for spending 30k golds/evening for raiding

    What is a non-problem to you might seriously affect others. Ive had to abandon leveling toons many times because quets mob areas were absolutely overfarmed by many groups of boomkins.

    Pricing in the ah is so ridiculously low, its not even worth trying to make money with gathering professions anymore. Multiboxing in the way it is done nowadays is a huge deal, and people that rightfully complain about it are not whiners.

    People are still confused in this thread. Multiboxing is and has never been against the tos or bannable. It is the use of 3rd part automation software that is

    Btw you can fully bot without using automation software. Their was this guy back in vanilla that full cleared 40man raids on 40 accounts without using any.

    So average player successfully plays 1 character at a time, while multiboxer has to play several to be successful - who is more average?

    It has had a severe impact on the economy no one can deny that even Blizzard cannot at this point. It makes legitimate farmers get more for their time spent farming as it should be. Allowing people to do that was devaluing everyone's basic farming.

    I get that people feel that it will make the game more fair, but for me the only real impact this creates is probably making the consumable costs higher. Then again, I kind of intended not to use raid consumables anymore anyway, so that might help push me to that goal. Overall I'm pretty indifferent about this

    Now let's hope raw material mat collection rate is increased or consumption rate is lowered or the economy is fucked.

    Oh no, the economy!

    Let me blow your mind. You can hate multiboxers AND hate botters at the same time. Crazy concept, but I bet if you let it sit and roll around in your brain for a while, you will figure out how it is possible. I imagine the majority of people here are actually more annoyed by the botters than the MBers.

    Obviously not how the game was supposed to be played from the start, I'm surprised this didn't happen sooner.

    Conversely you can make more gold selling fewer mats, because the price to sell them will have gone up. Which nets more gold for casual players.

    Top end things that aren’t easily farmable still sell for a crap ton of gold because they don’t have their constituent parts being deflated in price. So raiders that prosper from selling runs and bring in hundreds of thousands of gold or multiboxers that can sell dirt cheap mats at such a volume so as to still bring in gobs of gold set the prices for those prohibitively high.

    This could help bridge that gap.

    I'm not a producer. I exclusively consume. So I won't be selling anything. I'm screwed unless things change.

    Oh people are at mad at bots...don't think they aren't. It's just a multiboxer is way more visible because the random bot that you cross is not obvious until he does something "botty" but a train of druids catches the eye instantly.

    Anyway the real point of my post was: this policy change affects almost nothing to multibox gatherers. They will continue to use 10 druids because you can easily do it without multiboxing software.

    So I'm still a little surprised so many people in this thread are making statements like "the economy" or "I can finally herb" or "let's see herbs/ores prices now"....because from my perspective almost nothing changes for the druid's train.
