It's happy happy bored time at work, so time to start a thread. Something I see people talk about in game on Truebox servers is how people can't possibly be playing on 6 different computers and being that efficient. While there are cheaters out there that use bannable 3rd party software, the vast majority of Trueboxers are doing it within the rules. So, here's a quick little discussion on some of the ways they are doing it. For the purposes of this thread, I will be discussing Trueboxing based on the following group setup: Shadowknight - Tank Cleric - Healer Enchanter - Crowd Control Mage - DPS Mage - DPS Mage - DPS First off, the only two characters that require full focus of the gamer are the Tank and Crowd Control. The other 4 characters can be put on small laptops or mini computers off to the side. More about that later. For the Tank and Crowd Control, the trueboxer needs a real keyboard, mouse, and monitor right in front of them. These are the two classes they will be maining. It is very easy to work two classes, so no mysteries to decipher there. As for the healer, all of their hot bar buttons will be setup as follows: /pause 3, /target JoeBobTank /cast 1 /cast 1 /cast 1 /cast 1 This will target the character to be healed by name. The 4 casts after it will take care of any fizzles. The healer will have 1 hot button for each character in the group, a group heal, and a sit button. As for the 3 DPS characters, they will 2 custom hotbar buttons as follows: /pause 3, /assist main assist /pause 3, /pet attack /pause 3, /assist main assist /cast 1 /cast 1 /cast 1 This will assist the main assist (have the tank setup as main assist), send pet. The second one will assist the main assist and cast a nuke spell. The 2 extra casts help with fizzles. They will have a button to cast pet buff and one for sit as well. All characters other than the tank will have a Follow hotbar button as follows: /pause 3, /target JoeBobTank /g Following %t /follow This will make the character follow your tank, and the group chat message will let you know they are following the right person. Now as for the Healer and 3 DPS computers. These can be laptops, mini computers, tablets, etc. They truly are not important. They don't need big monitors or keyboards in front of the player. The player can literally see everything they need to see from their main 2 computers in the group window (health and mana). You also do not need to have 6 huge keyboards all stacked together. You can get USB numpads that have a long usb cable. Then you just map the /, *, -, +, 0, and . to your hot bar buttons. Map the 8, 4, 6, and 2 to movement. Map 5 to sit. Map 7 and 8 to look up and down. Map 9 and 3 to move up and down. Literally everything you need for the Healer and 3 DPS can be handled on a numpad. That saves a ton of room on your desk. So, then when you pull a mob, you do the following: Tank pulls and builds agro with snares/debuffs Enchanter puts the adds on pulls to sleep and slows the main target Then you simply hit the same key (I tend to use the . key on each of the DPS characters to fire off the send pet hotbar button) on the 3 DPS numpads. Bam, bam, bam. Easy peasy. If you need a heal, hit the + key on the healer numpad. At 70% mob health, hit the / key on the 3 DPS num pads to cast nukes. Rinse and repeat. The fact that you simply hit 1 key on 3 small numpads to send pets and then 1 key on 3 small numpads to nuke can make it look like you are using key broadcasting, but you are not. It just looks like that becuase it's so fast to hit 3 keys in a row. That's it. There's nothing magical about it. It's just 2 main computers, 4 mini computers with USB numpads, and well defined hotbar buttons.
