How to run two clients?
Posted 23 January 2013 - 02:33 PM
I have two GW2 accounts, I want to run both on my PC which will be easy as I have two monitors and a higher end gaming PC. I'm looking to RP/Socialize on one account while I'm out gathering or WvW/PvP'ing on the other one. Whenever I try to start the client twice or run the GW2 setup again it errors out.

Multiboxing is very simmilar to botting and 3rd party programming so according to Anet’s policy it is strictly forbidden. Please, refrain from making use of this and report any player you see making use of this.

Thank you for contacting NCSOFT Technical Support.
While players are allowed to play Guild Wars 2 through multiple clients, this is not a configuration that we support. I would recommend checking out the official forums for any tips or workarounds presented by other players who multi-box with Guild Wars 2.
Should you have any additional questions please don't hesitate to let us know.

In other games multiboxing didn't require any special third party software and it is what got me hooked on buying two accounts when I play a game I like. I enjoy RP'ing/socializing in a certain location in the game on my 2nd screen while I run around on my main screen gathering. Or if it's a more intense conversation then I gather/craft on the 2nd monitor and RP/socialize on the main one.

The official forums aren't GW2Guru, yeah it's a technicality, I know. Those are the official forums: https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum . Anyways, the way you describe it, it is technically no different from using two computers at the same time. I'm not certain whether anet will tolerate it or not though, depends where they draw the line.

That said, I don't see the point of having to alt-tab to another Gw2.exe instance to chat/socialize when you could just chat on your main. And I don't care how powerful your PC is, you likely don't have much CPU overhead to do much of anything while in a WvW zerg, lest of all run a second game.

Yeah I already posted on the official forums but the thread went without a single reply. So I thought, Hey, why not GW2Guru?
