This time last year, I was doing a tri-box experiment in WOW. My objective was to 5-box TBC content that I hadn’t seen - almost all of the instances. When multi-boxing, a good percentage of 5-box teams are all of the same class or at least 4 of the same class. My plan was to have a Paladin tank and 4 shadow priests. Not an obvious choice, I did some research that showed Shadow Priest were workable because of their mana and health regeneration talents. Fights that required burst damage could however, prove tricky. The only caster classes I was interesting in playing were Priests or Warlocks. Although I have a Druid, Boomkin isn’t a spec that’s ever appealed to me.
Ultimately, I decided on priests to avoid soul shard and pet management times 4. Mage was also an early consideration. I put a Mage in my trio but I quickly learned that I can’t stand Mage play-style. And I do mean, I HATED IT!! You couldn’t pay me to play a Mage as a main, that’s how much I dislike the class. The plan was to ditch her ass in Outland for the Warlock. I kept the Mage in the trio even once I realized how much I disliked it, as an option for certain encounters. That decision necessitated she be moved off being a main account, to being included as a bundle so she could be swapped out as necessary or shelved altogether. I transferred her to the account with the 70 Druid and Warlock. Those three on an account would give me nice flexibility in slot 5.
