While I'm bored at work I thought this would make an interesting topic of discussion. I've always been intrigued by boxing in Everquest, it's one of the only games I've played where playing two or more characters at once is viable, fun, and increases the entertainment of the game for me personally. I'm interested in getting other's thoughts and experience on the subject. It's also fun to theorycraft. Why do you choose to box? What classes do you play? Why did you pick those classes? How has the experience with these characters gone? Do you have tips for other players on your box? Will you make a new box in the future, if so what classes and why? I'll start off: One big reason TAKP attracted me is the option to box. I chose to box two characters because I like to be self sufficient but still have the option of grouping when I can. I've never boxed 3 characters at once and I feel like I might get over whelmed. That being said I'll probably try to 3 box in the future once I get established with my current pair. I currently box a Shadowknight and Shaman. They've always been my favorite classes in the game, so why not play both of them. They compliment each other really well so far. Shaman buffs benefit melee characters greatly, along with good slows my SK is very durable in most situations. The SK's taps help supplement the Shaman's weaker healing with taps. There are a few big disadvantages to the pair though. At low levels It's very dependent on the SK's gear. The SK has to do the majority of the damage, since most of the Shaman's mana goes into Slow/Healing/low mana dots. This issue will get alleviated a bit when the Shaman get's his wolf pet and better gear. Another disadvantage at lower levels has been travel. While I do have SoW, the lack of Invisibly and ports has been a pain. This will get better at 30 when both classes get access to invis. If I'm deep in a dungeon I have to fight my way out for the SK due to not being able to port/gate/invis him out. It's been a tough pair to play as my first characters on the server, but with help from the community donating me gear, and buying gear from the bazaar it's been going well. Like I said earlier I'll probably try to 3 box in the future. I haven't decided on what classes, but a paladin/druid/dps (mage maybe?) combo sounds like it could be fun.
