    Anyone else completely unable to pick an alt?

    I've never been THE most alt-friendly person, but I always have had at least 1-2. I played Warlock and Prot Paladin for years, and then in Cata, got a Mage and Shaman also. I now play my Shaman full time...and cannot NOT for the life of me bring myself to play an alt! My guild wants to start doing an alt run, and I just... have no interest.

    Paladins have lost their luster for me, so I am steering clear of that. Warlock is in my maybe pile... and Mage never really did it for me. I had more fun leveling him than any other time of playing him.

    Been thinking DK Tank ... but their talents just bore the crap out of me. I am an AWFUL healer, so that's out for mostly everything.

    Anyone else having these problems? It's really not even the dailies or anything like that. I don't mind 'em. Anyone have a suggestion?

    I have my Druid as my main. I'm rolling a Tankadin now. My 3rd and final toon will be a hunter. I will have each roll completely covered and will never need more than 3 toons.

    Can't really tell you what to play, but I love my Druid. Tank or Heals, plus nice DPS. Not very gear dependant, and it is a blast to dismount, while falling cast a buff, and then shift into a bird and keep right on flying

    See I wish I liked Druids, because they can fill so many different roles...but I can't stand any of their forms at all!

    I just pick on main character and play it.

    If I have other characters, it's for professions (Currently I have no alts except a death knight finishing up Shadowmourne for my main monk to get the tabard).

    I do know what you mean that it's tough, though. I always go by lore and "feel" as much as balance or playstyle. Then, I can really get into my character.


    And why listen to your guild? You don't have to have an alt. Tell them to bite off.

    Have you tried a monk?

    Am having a hard time picking a main. I have a 90 monk, 86 DK (with like everything max, he was my achievement whore for WOTLK and CATA), 85 Lock (PVP), shaman, rogue (ewwww) and hunter (zzzzzzz).


    after hitting 90, i just have no interest in leveling right now.

    lol - fair enough.

    How do you feel about zipping around at mach-10 bashing faces in? If you like that, I recommend trying a warrior Heroic Leap is a ton of fun. Charge is a ton of fun. Overall, I think warriors are one of the most primal and fun classes to play. Run at a mob really fast, then beat their head in with a giant weapon (or 2 giant weapons - even better). And you scream really loud so that you hit things harder. PLUS - you won't get asked to heal

    I actually have a level 85 Warrior, I was going to try that but he is on a shitty dead server that I rolled on randomly to play with a friend who ...I never ended up playing with (tremendous waste of time, no?) And then one day my guilds DPS warrior over heard me talking about it and was like "oh god, don't do it. I'm switching mains asap" which kinda scared me off rofl. I may still consider that if I can't get through Monk or DK.

    I hear Rogues are doing awful right now, is that true? Any rogue feed back?

    At the moment - I've hit 90 and am working on dailies and dungeons. By the time I finish those, I'm usually quite pooped.

    Now with new rep to farm (Wrathion and Shieldwall) and now that I can farm Raids (OMG!) I'm going to have less time.

    Still, I think this stands as a testament to how fun MoP is compared to Cata. Once I hit 85, I was pretty much done with a toon because I hated doing Tol Barad and Firelands took forever.

    (Though I'm not going to lie... I'm not looking forward to grinding levels again QQ)

    It takes me forever to pick an alt I like during a new expansion because I feel like I have to try everything....Currently between either Lock or Boomy decisions, decisions.

    I too have problems choosing alts. I think you're going about it the right way though - looking for abilities and a playstyle you find fun, over something that's OP.

    I used to be an extreme altoholic, from the days of mid Vanilla right up until Cataclysm. I was never a serious "end-gamer" : only dabbled in an occasional raid and some very casual PvP. By midway through this year, I was spreading my playtime around 16 max level characters, across both factions and with all classes represented.

    But in Mists, I've found myself almost completely focused on my single level 90 Warrior. I'm just overwhelmed with stuff to do. Lots of reputation to work on, the legendary questlines have got me really enthused about raiding for the first time, and I'm addicted to pet battles.

    It's not that I don't love my alts, I do, and I keep getting tempted ... but I'm having so much fun with my main that there just isn't the time. I'm also putting off other things that I said I'd do before Christmas - like have a serious shot at Guild Wars 2, or the Star Wars MMO, or even games like Assassin's Creed III.

    I had 10 85s (one of each class) going into MoP, but I've only leveled 3. Reasons: a) leveling without a flying mount is absolutely horrible. b) reputation grinds are bad enough on one toon.

    That's the other thing... the level grind is rouuuuuuugh... I do not want to go through it again until I find something I really love. I am SO GLAD I picked Shaman first, it's by far the most fun I've had in forever.
