Turns out trying to do the jobs of 5/10 people makes for a suitable challenge

I do cop a fair bit of abuse from the people on my realm, mostly when I pull out all the sparkle ponies or when they attempt to gank me and wonder why they lost when I wtfpwn them. But any smart group of players will have a huge advantage over me playing the same ammount of characters and I welcome the challenge, it just makes it fun!

(I don't PvP by the way, which most people hate multiboxers doing)
Right, I agree, like many people invest large amounts of money into playing their favorite sport or art or w/e. Like I said, it's a bit uncommon but not that different.

I also feel you on spicing things up after five years. I guess for you it's playing this way or not playing at all. I know Blizz are happy you remain.

Yeah, I don't see too many multiboxers in PvP but those that I do see can seem unbeatable. In reality they can have their greatest advantage turned into their greatest disadvantage. For example, most of the time a multiboxer has all chars in the same place at the same time - occupying one spot simotaneously. Aoe's ftw. Once you use that close-quarter handicap against things become easier and I have beaten some in this way. Hardest Mboxer i've fought in PvP was a 4-person lock. I remember that Gnome and his 3 clones would own me relentlessly. You can't dispel the dots fast enough since they're X 4 :-/

Omg Hive, you must be Blizzard's no.1 fan!

Gees 10 accounts, you can create your own 10 man raid group.

That's my plan

EDIT: I should add that, that is a serious comment There are at least 5 other multiboxxers I know of who are 5 bosses through ICC10 playing by themselves...

It takes hours and hours of set up and macro's, and you have to have patience of a saint (as well as a LOT of gold) but I think it could be really fun!

Well that's the ultimate BGization of WoW lol! I wish I could replace some of our raid group with multiboxed accounts ><

I have been playing for two and a half years now, got 4 lvl 80, the first one, a warrior, took 8 months to get to 70, hit 70 a week before WOTLK came out Last one a druid took 3 weeks to get to 80...

Wow is great when you find good people to play with but can be souldestroying otherwise.
