dual char playing

I have two accounts and i am looking to auto follow myself and heal myself etc...

Are there addons that will make this easier so i don't have to keep tabbing back and forth?

Try searching for multibox. I did and saw like 4 addons listed

I've been toying with Game Commander Pro.
Haven't started using any of the advanced features yet but I'm running a pair of warlocks decently. I have read of a few people PVPing with it.

I'd love to do this as well and thanks for the video link. Spending time at just one character takes time so having multiple characters in a game will lessen the time in leveling each character.

i am very paranoid about Blizzard "banning" me for automating too much (there is anecdotal/apocryphal evidence that they monitor specifically for activity not associated with a physical keyboard/mouse action, and label it "botting").

basically, i run two copies of the game at the same time on the same system, all in window mode. i put one character on follow, and play the other. i manually "switch screens" as needed (for buffing, healing, chain pulling, looting, etc).

the only addon for this that i use currently is Hydra. about the only things i allow it to do that might otherwise need an explicit input action is jumping on a mount, and auto-accepting escort quests.

One of the tools that I used to find useful when I would multi-box is HotKeyNet. It will let you setup key bindings that only go to specific wow windows. So you could have say, 1-0 alt1-0, go to one window, shift1-0, ctrl1-0 to another, and then numpad1-0 go to another.

Google it
