Two Toons.

Worth a look alone for the ancient Carlton TV Ident at the start.

I have never seriously considered the merits of Multi-Boxing. Up until recently I'd only ever used my second account in conjunction with my first to drag low level alts around dungeons, but recently it's become a great way of getting achievements filled in both places. With the Account Wide Revelations now having finally sunk in, it becomes apparent that if P is off doing something that would get her an achievement, it might well be an idea to pull W out as well to duplicate it. This therefore will require some practice pre-Pandaland to perfect, and so I have decided to stick P back into the Argent Tournament to run with the Lock.

The benefits of this are twofold: P still misses a number of the Tournament Mounts. W doesn't have any, same for pets, but may not as yet get either as we discussed yesterday. For now, it's just about gathering the seals, which the pair did for the first time last night with the minimum of fuss. It's going to take me quite some time to be able to cast spells on two separate machines, so for now P kills and W follows dutifully on behind. It's not an ideal arrangement but it is doing the job for now.

Bearing this in mind, the next time I get some cash I'll be moving the Horde Rogue to the #2 account so the Hunter can drag her about a bit more on days when I can't face The Plan. This might also be a Thing to Utilise with both accounts for the purposes of grinding Therazane rep too, thinking as I type. I doubt I'll ever be as proficient at this whole thing as my Husband, who can tank and play a mage making it look like it's two separate people (with ability and dps to match)  but it will make better use of the increasingly limited amounts of time I have to play.

Time is everything, after all. Making the most of what I have is always a priority.

Just stay away from water. I don't know how many times I've forgot to check to see if my clone was still following and couldn't find her before she drowned.

I may not be cut out for this dual-boxing other than getting a record number of deaths!
