Arena last week!

Hello everyone,

This week i have played some arena on mondays and tuesdays, and all i can say is what a difference does the matter of a different day makes. Monday we ended up with 22 wins and 22 losses. Yesterday we have upgraded this to 37 wins and 29 losses.

I also got enough honor and rating to get my Relentless Wristguards yesterday, and spend 400g to enchant them with +30 Spell Power. I am really happy about my progress in arena so far, nontheless that im undergeared, we still are able to defeat most teams 1650 rating and lower.

We're currently on the 301st rank on our battlegroup, and i will get a title already when the seasons ends :) I ended up with Challenger last season, and i got around 1600 rating.

I'm now going for either: Furious Ring, Relentless Belt or Relentless Boots. I haven't decided yet. I just talked to Rui (he's multiboxing Görgorothä in the ) and he also gave me some advice on items, so im sure i will make up my mind!

Stay tuned for more information!

Kind regards,

First time arena!

Hello everyone,

Yesterday i made a new arena team named: Team Overdose on Grim'Batol EU, in the battlegroup Misery. Yesterday i've played with an portugese paladin named Blazing:
He's a great healer, and really saved my butt in really hard situations, so he really suits into my team :)

We've played 22 wins 21 losses yesterday, but the arena matches we lost were all against 1700+ teams, we've beaten every 1500 and below team so far. I need to gear up so i can beat higher rated teams soon aswell. Our goal is currently to aim for 1350 or 1450 rating so i can get the full furious set, and the relentless offset. Here is a list of the items i am planning to farm, notice that its quite a lot of honor i will need and it will take a while for sure!

[Furious Gladiator’s Band of Dominance] = 38000 Honor
[Relentless Gladiator’s Wristguards of Dominance] = 39400 Honor
[Relentless Gladiator’s Band of Ascendancy] = 47400 Honor
[Relentless Gladiator’s Pendant of Ascendancy] = 47400 Honor
[Relentless Gladiator’s Cloak of Dominance] = 47400 Honor
[Relentless Gladiator’s Waistguard of Dominance] = 62000 Honor
[Relentless Gladiator’s Sabatons of Dominance] = 62000 Honor
[Platinum Disks of Sorcery] = 25x Wintergrasp Mark of Honor
[Titan-Forged Mail Leggings of Dominance] = 40x Wintergrasp Mark of Honor
65x Wintergrasp Mark of Honor
343600 Honor

Arena Set:
[Furious Gladiator's Mail Gauntlets] = 7200 Honor 400 Arena Points 800 Rating
[Furious Gladiator's Mail Armor] = 12000 Honor 700 Arena Points 1000 Rating
[Furious Gladiator's Mail Helm] = 12000 Honor 700 Arena Points 1100 Rating
[Furious Gladiator's Mail Spaulders] = 9600 Honor 550 Arena Points 1350 Rating
40800 Honor
2350 Arena Points
1350 Rating

I will gem my gear with:
Meta: 21 Critical Strike Rating + 3% Increased Critical Damage
Red: 23 Spell Power
Yellow: 20 Spell Penetration
Red: 23 Spell Power
Yellow: 23 Spell Power
Blue: 20 Spell Penetration
Blue: 20 Spell Penetration
Random: 23 Spell Power
Red: 23 Spell Power
Blue: 20 Spell Penetration
Yellow: 23 Spell Power

Enchant my items with:
Left Slots:
Helm: 29 Spell Power + 20 Resilience
Spaulders: 23 Spell Power + 15 Resilience
Cloak: +35 Spell Penetration
Armor: +20 Resilience
Wristguards: +30 Spell Power
Right Slots:
Gauntlets: +28 Spell Power

Sabatons: +22 Stamina
Ring 1: +23 Spell Power
Ring 2: +23 Spell Power
Weapon Slots:
Weapon: +63 Spell Power
Shield: + 18 Stamina

Yep, its going to be a grind, hopefully we can arrange some AV farming days with 3-4 multiboxers and some random healers so we can get 50k a day :) This way it will take me about 6-7 days to get all my honor.

I hope you enjoyed reading this article, if you have any questions feel free to ask me here or ingame :)

Kind regards,

Team Overdose

Day One...

Hello everyone and thanks for reading another article on my blog!

So there i was, calling the blizzard support line because my creditcard was locked for my last payment. After trying to get into the queue for 1,5 hours, i got into the waiting queue and 20 minutes later i was talking to John, a friendly GM wich appeard to like multiboxing aswell.

He asked me questions howmany accounts i was playing, if i was horde or alliance and on wich realm i was playing. I dont know if those questions were questions he needed for information or that he just was interested. After a while he talked to the payment department, and they got my creditcard fixed, and i didn't had to send all information (Copy of ID, account name, authentication key etc.) again.

So i logged in and noticed i had to merge my accounts to a account before i could login. Merging my accounts went smooth and quick, so no problems there so far.

The drama started...

After logging in ( i already downloaded all the add-ons i wanted the day before and made profiles ) i had to configure everything. It took me 2 hours to get started. So when everything was configuered to my dream UI, i decided to go for a DTK Heroic. I got a friendly tank with 33k HP in 5 minutes and the beginning went really smooth. We killed the first boss but on the raptor boss we wiped because i was playing with the normal blizzard party frame, and i could barely see his hp.

He left the party and i downloaded AG_Unitframes. I went back in the game and guess what? WoW fatal error. I closed all my games and logged back in but... my whole UI was back to normal how it looked when i just logged in. All my macro's weren't saved, all my profiles weren't saved. So i started to rage and went into my saved variables and applied the profile of my main character to all my clones.

So 30 minutes later i logged out and back in to save all my saved variables. I wanted to do another heroic or do some PvP but i noticed it was time for bed.

Tomorow (today, friday) is going to be my first real start. I got everything configured now for all my toons, but i think i will reinstall my computer and clean the inside to remove all dust, because i noticed it was slow while i was multiboxing.

Stay tuned for my next article, going to try to get some screenshots to fill up the color on my blog :)

Kind regards,

Team Overdose
Grim'Batol EU


First of all, welcome on my Blog! I hope you will enjoy your stay =)

My name is Steven and im 17 years old, i will be 18 in July. My hobbies are baseball, gaming, chillin. I have a girfriend named Alexandra, she's 17 aswell. I am currently on a dutch computerschool, but im going to follow a different eduction.

Gaming carreer: I am a retired multiboxer, i have been multiboxing since the release of The Burning Crusade. I started out with dual-boxing two dreanei shamans. I really enjoyed dual-boxing but i wanted more firepower, and 2 months later i got myself decked out with 5 accounts. My first multiboxing team were:
1 Protection Paladin
4 Elemental Shaman
on the realm Jaedenar EU.

I managed to clear most heroics and i even got 1850 arena rating with my arena team on TBC, and 1750 on WotLK. My plan is now to gear up 4 of my shamans and prepare for Cataclysm. I have made a realm-transfer to Grim'Batol, simply because i know a lot of other multiboxers on that realm, and they are really nice people to play with =)

Our multiboxing guild on Cataclysm is named: Gimp. We are preparing for Cataclysm (rated BGs, guild leveling system, new heroics and more cool things!) but for now were still active in battlegrounds and arena.

I use one computer to play 5 of my accounts, i use two 21 inch screens. My computer spec:
Gforce 8800GTS
Quad Core Q6600
8 GB Ram
G15 Logitech Gaming Keyboard
H5V2 Gaming Headset of Steelseries
Razer Gaming Mouse

Ingame i don't use many addons. The addons that i currently use are:
Jamba (Multiboxing add-on)
Bartender4 (actionbar mod)
Move-Anything (move anything in your UI)
Quartz (Player Cast Bar)
Gladius (arena unitframes)
Questhelper (speaks for itself =))
Super Duper Macro (easyer making macro's / streaming macro's to other characters)
Elkano's Buff Bars (better looking buff/debuff bars)
Jim's Cooldown Plus (icon of spell/ability comes in screen once its cooled off)
Scrolling Combat Text (more fancy combat text)

Stay tuned for my next article! For the Horde!

Kind regards,
