How to 2 Box in Everquest (EQ)
This guide covers 2 boxing in EQ, The original Everquest I. This is a follow up guide to How to 2 Box in MMORPGS and if you have not read it yet, you should start there first. This guide will resume where that one left off and try and explain how to control several characters in Everquest 2 using one keyboard. We ran a group in EQ from level 1 on to level 70, with no problems using the Control / Boxin Assistant duo. Press a key and the whole group follows, press a key everyone goes into combat, press another and they stop, press a key and the group evacs... Once set up it is a lot of fun to take on the premiere content with just your wife or even by your self. ;)
Everquest is a very fun game. And probably the best bunch of players we have run across. But it can be really hard to get groups there. It is common to stand around looking for a group for several hours at the higher levels and still not find one. Boxing allowed us to really enjoy that game without having to stand around hoping to get a group when we only had a couple of hours to play to begin with. Without it we would not have been able to continue to play.
Now that you have read How to 2 Box in MMORPGS we will take up where it left off. This means that you should already have a network share for our log file set up, The Control Assistant installed and profile created and The Boxin Assistant installed and a profile created. Also you have the basic start, stop, follow and wait commands working through the log file triggers. In this example we are going to play a warrior (Henry) and 2 box a shaman (Jenny) in Everquest. Of course one of the main advantages of bringing along a shaman is heals so lets start there.
