World of Warcraft cracks open a cold one with this year’s Brewfest, WoW player multiboxes with 26 accounts

October is just around the corner, and World of Warcraft players know what that means: Brewfest! Yes, everyone’s favorite booze-centric celebration returns for another year, bringing with it a slew of festivities including wolpertinger chasing, ram racing, and of course storming the Grim Guzzler and brutally murdering dozens of bar patrons for trinkets and a shot at exclusive Brewfest mounts.

Completing the various Brewfest daily quests will, as usual, reward players with Brewfest prize tokens which can be redeemed for a variety of delightful prizes, including Brewfest outfits, battle pets, heirloom upgrades, and of course subscriptions to the prestigious Brew of the Month club. Achievement hunters will also have plenty on their plates, as the event brings with it a slew of new achievements related to the festivities, and completing all of them will earn players the Brewmaster meta-achievement and title.

Meanwhile, MOP reader Sally tipped us a Twitch clip of a WoW player multiboxing – successfully! – with 26 different accounts. He’s got 25 Hunters farming, then he’s using the last toon to win at the auction hall. Trust me, whatever you’re doing in MMOs this weekend is not nearly as hardcore as this, scrub.

This makes me recall my happy evening dual-boxing DDO. Hours and hours and I managed one big dungeon. It was awesome. :D

I was hesitant buying one copy of the expansion and paying that monthly fee.. Can’t imagine buying it 26 times over and then paying the monthly upkeep… But I guess with his farming/AH control he could maintain some of the accounts with WoW tokens.

Doesn’t seem like many MMOs support multiboxing anymore, but I guess if Blizz can get 26 for the price of 1 why would they disallow it? xD

Paying for 26 monthly subs is just a bit over 2 Mill gold/month. If he is hardcore – and it sure seems like he would be – then his AH toon should be able to pay for all 26. 100K gold a day is way above average for the total population, but would get faint praise on the more toxic gold making forums.

Yeah that’s true. With the current cheap prices of the WoW token (112,355g) it’d actually be 3Mill a month, but more than doable for a hardcore player farming with 26 accounts.

However I have doubts that he would be able to fund both the expansion purchases and monthly subs for all of the accounts prior to the price drop of WoW tokens with tokens alone.
