for which server, or both?
and why limit it to just 2?
Zone into Sirens Grotto and do a /pick check. They'll be 8 picks of 16 people per pick and 24 in another. He's there in the bottom part of the zone and completely automated.
So now it's gone from Agnarr v2.0 to Mangler v2.0 with a 'feature' of having a GM presence (for a whopping two expansions)? Will this be for regular GM events? or just policing?
I guess I'm confused why you guys at Darkpaw thought adding two more Mangler servers is the best you can do. Unless you're a boxer that is excited to have an open boxing server finally. Otherwise, what do these have to offer over Mangler? The trilogy for the 10th time?
His point is that you apparently do not fully comprehend the term "box" in this context. When you write "boxing any more than 2 characters".... many of us take that as "ok, one main and up to two boxes."
On guild raids there are mains and alts, and alts are also referred to as "boxes". If a raid is full then people will be told "leave some of your boxes out of the DZ to make room for mains."
I've never heard anyone use the interpretation as you are. Just an fyi.
I have talked to many ppl about this. orginally I thought 1 main, 2 'boxes' which meant 3 total accounts. so I didn't mind. but they are under the impression that it means a total of 2 accounts. this is why I am here to get clarity on this.
but when I play. I don't raid and all my chars are equal, so I don't have a 'main' this is the issue with the slang on terms.
Good change Darkpaw, thanks for listening to the community.
Does a 6 boxer really box 5 + their main? lol
If it's just 2 boxing on the Aradune server what's the point of not letting people 2 box on a single PC? Having 2 PC's in order to 2 box is going to be annoying.
Can the team comment if there are plans to allow both characters (2) to be played from one PC? Please see other threads regarding avoiding having extra laptops on desk, etc.
Well "main" is a term usually reserved either to the declared main in a guild (for looting purposes), and/or the original character made on that server. But not always. My first one on the server was a necro but he's now the lowest alt on the totem pole across all three accounts.
I just hope they can clarify if they mean 2 total accounts or 3 total. If its just 2. I know myself and a few others wont be playing.
That's how a lot of guilds do loot priority...but you start boxing as soon as you are playing more than one toon. And you are boxing both.
2 total accounts.
Can we please get a Kunark or Velious launch? Do people really want to just be stuck in unrest > guk the entire time leveling again? Or at least some sort of incentive to visit the other dungeons.
Aradune, and because that's what was decided upon. Rizlona is a boxing server, there is no limit to how many you can box.
Fair point. But I think the confusion over the numbers on Aradune suggest that "boxes" (rather than "boxing") means different things to different players.
Thank you Dreamweaver for the clarity. although I personally feel like it doesn't make sense to have the truebox server limited. it would make more sense to be the other way around.
Thank you for listening. I'll be resubbing for Rizlona after all.
The whole point of the other one is that it is unlimited.
I believe their intent is to have people who want to do more than 2 on the other server. It makes sense. On the current Truebox there are a lot of capable players doing full groups, but that defeats the concept of Truebox. People who magnet there are looking for a human interaction experience. Two boxes can accomplish the mundane farming for stuff, and anything larger you would need other humans.
With the internet the way it is DPG can only enforce it to the best of their ability. All systems in life are tested and abused if possible, this is no different. But humans are lazy, so most mega boxers will just go to the box server and call it a day.
