    Anyone know if you can do the account linking with a trial account, and if the linking is available in Europe?

    The account linking is intended to be done with a trial account, basically. You don't get a free month unless they buy a month and your don't get a mount unless they buy two. You do get the 300% exp bonus but trial accounts cap at 20 and that's like an hour of play when you've got 300% exp.

    One more thing about the account linking, can three accounts be linked? So, for example, could me and a friend make an account between us and link it to our original accounts to help us level alts on eachothers server?

    Accounts are linked in pairs, so one account pairing out of three won't be linked.

    Edit: Too slow! But to answer someone else's question, the two accounts can have identical information, yes.

    This works because this was their evil plan all along. I'd wager 80%+ of their RAF accounts are existing customers opening secondary accounts for the bonuses.

    * When casting a spell:

    o The first and second hit will add .5 secs each to the cast time.
    o All hits after the second will have no effect.

    * When channeling a spell:

    o The first and second hit reduces current duration by 25% of total duration each.
    o All hits after the second will have no effect.

    Implemented in the newest beta build.

    So I started tinkering with a dual-box pair for the referral deal they're running. I still haven't invested anything extra, using Octopus for key/mouse broadcasting (it's free software) and my second account is still trial. I've gotten movement and simple nuke spell coordination down, though there is a lot more to smooth out.

    The biggest issue is me trying to decide what pair to run. I'm pretty much set on just doing a pair of the same class for the sheer simplicity. Don't really feel like trying to get two different classes to work together off the same hotkeys. My main test pair has been two warlocks, which got a few bars from 4 before finishing the very first kill quest. They level too fast to buy skills when they're initially available at this level, I'll have to send some cash and bags to them.

    My main goal here is to get two to 60 and then dump the secondary account. I don't really feel like paying two subscriptions for more than a month so I'll just see how many 60's I can get levelled up on my main account in 30 days and then dump the new account (or gift it to a friend "Here, have some 60's").

    It's actually not as complicated as I thought, and you can totally set up your own system that makes sense to you for controlling two characters at once with software like Octopus. I might try making a good OP for this specific type of setup. While there is a lot of info on Dual-Boxing.com's wiki, it's very scattered and some of it is outdated (macro commands that don't work anymore).

    edit: Something minor, might seem obvious but I didn't think of it immediately. The summoning spell for the linked accounts shows up in the friends list rather than the spellbook itself. Apparently the first step was to add my "friend" to my friends list and there I would have seen the summon spell within the friends window itself.

    Could you tell me how you set up the keybindings with Octopus? I tried to do that for two instances on a single comp but I couldn't get it to broadcast (or, I couldn't get the other instance to receive).

    I'm going to start a new thread in about 15 minutes with a little rundown for those out there who want to try it out.

    edit: Thread is go...took a lot longer than I thought.

    Eh...most builds seem to be able to get their pushback talents for PvP. So far I'm only having trouble with Ret Paladins, but they have ways around it.

    Pushback has been a mechanic long overdue for a change. The last important thing in PvP to get fixed is dispelling.

    So here I thought the Spirit of Competition pet and tabard would be awesome for PVP, getting more games going, with more players wanting to play. Turns out I was wrong.

    All it did for Horde in my battlegroup was bring out all the retards who were before too scared to even think about PVP, so they just huddle up in a corner and die. While for Alliance it seems to have done the opposite, and they just destroyed us in every single BG I played.

    Seriously, there was a horde premade AV, with 37 people in the premade, so only 3 pugs. And they got stomped by an all PuG alliance group team. How sad is that.

    Want to trade servers? I have yet to win AV as alliance after more than 36 games (I have 36 tokens, but that's not counting the ones I quit because the first 10 minutes was 16 v 40). This was before and two after the Spirit of Competition and nothing changed. Well other than being in AV 1 or 2, I'm in AV 35. I just wanted to win once so I could get the spear.

    Though we own WSG. I don't know how we can suck so bad at AV and rule so hard at WSG, but we do. I got more than 50 tokens from it today and after 18 wins I finally got my dragon pet.

    As alliance I noticed this also, as soon as it started we won most games. except when out of the blue a premade of sunwell players stomped us.

    It takes back my thoughts on alliance players being bad at pvp, it now goes in my head that alliance dont really want to pvp, and that people who play horde are people who actively seek it out.

    (atleast this is what I tell myself everytime I lose a bg)

    Fun fact about Mage Water Elementals: When you get out of combat and re-stealth, while they stop attacking you, they still know where you are and will run right on top of you. And if you try to move, they'll follow you around. Other pets just untarget you and return to their master.
