Halls of Lightning Heroic - Weirdness Apr 12 2012

I encountered a slight problem while doing a guild run of Halls of Lightning Heroic a couple days ago. In the hallway after the second boss (Volkhan) we were fighting all the mobs at the far end of the hall when I got feared. There's a weird bug in the game (it's been there a long time too) that when you're feared you can run places and up walls you normally can't. This happened to me and I ended up running over a hole in the instance and fell underneath it. I was able to run around for a while but eventually it disconnected me and continued to do so every time I tried logging in. To get my self out of there I had my guild kick me from the group and I waited over an hour then logged back in. By doing this I was reset to the beginning of the instance and able to stay logged in again.

Hurray!

Halls of Lightning Dual-Boxing Aug 2 2011

Halls of Lightining is a level 79-80 dungeon located in Ulduar in northern Storm Peaks. There are four bosses: General Bjarngrim, Volkhan, Ionar, and Loken. I didn't need to dual-box to finish the dungeon, I can solo it and you can find that video here.

I finally found a way to capture both Warcraft clients and felt like making a dual-boxing video. I've been playing around with different ways of recording my dual-boxing dungeon runs and I think I finally found one that works to my satisfaction. When I first started dual-boxing I used two computers, one for each account. I later got a computer powerful enough to run two Warcraft clients at once and started using Keyclone to broadcast keystrokes to both clients at once. I later switched to IS Boxer and that's what I've been using for almost two years now. The problem with running two clients on the same computer is I haven't found a good way of capturing video from both clients. I've tried many programs and none work to my satisfaction, so I've gone back to dual-boxing on two computers and using Fraps to capture video on each one.

I will be making more dual-boxing videos in the future and hopefully I can find a more interesting way of presenting both captures other than what I have in this video.
