I feel like you're almost asking, "is my pet cat even worth it?"
This isn't my question to players. This is a debate on whether it's worth spending gold on a character that's not your main? I know people that haven't made alts because they think they're a waste of time, even if they're bored of their main
I never said I wanted to delete my alts, I like having an alt, I was just wondering if it is beneficial in any way possible apart from dual logging
So you see no benefit to having alts available at a high level who can fill in when the clan is short on one of the 5 classes. I have been slowly leveling all 5 classes so when someone says, "we need a tank" or "we need a druid", etc I can log one to help out if needed and no others are able to get online.
I think some who are confused by the usefulness of having multiple Alts are only looking at the glass as half empty scenario. It is not about dual, tri, quad logging, it is about being able to use any one of them at any time for the greater good.
Makes sense, I'm not looking at the glass being anything yet, by the looks of my title it is evident that it makes me sound like I'm leaning to the alts being a waste of time, but I'm not. I think having an alt is a good idea but I'm curious to hear others views.
