    Default Is it permitted to play on 2 different accounts at the same time?

    Like the title says, is it permitted to play 2 different accounts at the same time? Same computer.

    IIRC there was a dev post about it a while back.. multiboxing or even multiple instances open on same comp is fine as you're still running the quests & doing all the inputs etc manually yourself, and it's pretty common - automated bots are what's forbidden.
    I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.

    Yeah, as he said, its fine as long as you don't automate it.

    I run 3 accounts on my machine and I've never had a problem.

    Also, if you open the launcher and use the little down arrow on top, then choose options, you can see the bottom option is to allow multiple game instances.

    Enjoy!

    Reasons why it's allowed IMHO:

    1) some players would do it with different computers (or with virtual machine), and it would be hard to prove that it's the same person. That's why you can run multiple game instances now (I mean no tweaks needed, just launch another game instance).

    2) many players buy adventure packs also on their second account (including me), so it's additional money, which Turbine can't ignore

    3) it's not game breaking (at least it's a lot less game breaking than ASAH, the evil button in chests, xp stones, bugs, exploits, etc.)
