This Month's Topic:
Build Your Own Ideal Alt - Inspired By The Original Ideal Alts Series.
This month is all about some of the other bloggers' interpretations of the Ideal Alt creation strategy. There are some wonderful posts this month, so be sure to visit them all. We even have a mini-podcast submission this month. Thanks George!
My first guide, Mysterious Fortune Card Mastery, has been helping a handful of players (70+ sold so far) who have already got their fortune card business up and running and are raking in the WoW gold. Also remember to check out the other great guides in the WoW Gold Guide Shop.
Be sure to check out AuctionHouseJunkies.com for the podcast on making gold, which is hosted by myself and Wes of Capped By Cata. Goldgrub's Goblin Academy has also opened doors for helping newer gold makers.
Goldgrub's is growing nicely and we have added a couple of excellent writers to the staff. Be sure to check the site out and welcome Xtreme and R9sid9nt9vil of Eviscerated.net. Xtreme has written some excellent articles and R9sid9nt9vil has just signed up to assist readers with his thoughts on our Sunday posting slot.
Build Your Own Ideal Alt
Alts, Ideally by Drayden of Third Torch
"For me, alts are all about professions. But there's so many to choose from? Which professions would I want, and on what character?"Build Auction House Spies With Eternally Free "Starter Edition Accounts" by Fluxdada (Flux) of Power Word: Gold
"While these free "Starter Editions" are eternally-free there are many restrictions on the account to prevent abuse. You can't use mail or chat in general chat. Can't be invited to a guild or trade with other players. You can reach a maximum level of 20 and you can't purchase or sell items on the auction house."
Old Main Is Already Ideal by R9sid9nt9vil of Eviscerated.net and Goldgrub's Goblin Academy
"I had to think about it for a few days to come up with the perfect alt all around. The more I thought about it the more I realized I already have the ideal alt. My old main is a Blood elf Paladin Tank; he is maxed Jewelcrafting and Enchanting."
Ideal Alts If Starting Fresh by Epidermuss of Wrags To Riches
"So on my realm I play on I currently have 9 of my 10 slots for the realm used with a lot a time played between all characters. So I took this topic and looked at it as if I was going to start over on a new realm how I would go about building up a stable of characters and the jobs I would assign to each character."
The Mana Cooler Episode 102 - An Ideal Alt by George of The Mana Cooler Podcast
"In this ideal episode of The Mana Cooler, I talk about what an ideal alt would be for me. I separate into 3 categories - Dream World, Wishful Thinking and Reality. Thanks for listening!"
Making A Buck While Leveling Alt No. 2349 by Windsoar of Jaded Alt
"This alt isn’t for those who are looking to create the perfect complement of max level toons to build their gold-making empire. These are basic tips & tricks that anyone looking to level just for the fun of it can use to squeeze a bit of extra cash out of a disposable character."
The Building A Better Bank Series by Wes of Capped By Cata, Goldgrub's Goblin Academy, Auction House Junkies and Warcraft Econ.
"The three topics I'm going to cover in the next few days are:
- Part 1: To Level or Not to Level?
- Part 2: Choosing the Best Class
- Part 3: Professions? "
"Now Cold did a fairly comprehensive series of posts on this subject & my first choice was in there so it's taken me a while but I think I've found one he didn't cover! The rep grinding rogue."
