Over at Cold’s Gold Factory, my main site, I have been running a series on Ideal Alts that has been well liked. The Ideal Alts Series is a great read for World of Warcraft players looking for ideas on what kind of alt character to create next. Many Wolrd of Warcraft players have a main character and look for ideas for a new character when thinking of making gold. I have looked at a few of the roles that an Alt character can provide. Alt is short for Alternate, as this character is an alternate that you are playing instead of your main WoW character.
With the Ideal Alts Series I look at what role the alt will fulfill. Is he going to be a farmer? Well, what type of farmer is this new alt character going to be? I dig inside the various combinations and offer advice for both Horde and Alliance options. I look at which professions to choose and which race and class can give the best results based on what role the WoW character will be used for. So make sure to head on over to Cold’s Gold Factory and check out the series on Ideal Alts.
Here’s a handy shortcut to the series opener and the current entries in the Ideal Alts Series.
