Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, a resident expert on a common gamer condition called Altitis.

By now, you’ve probably gotten a few alts leveled high enough that crafting is a consideration.
Most alt friendly games have a form of crafting that will benefit not only the active character, but alts as well.
For this reason, picking a craft that benefits your alts is highly recommended.
If you tend to lean towards casting classes, cloth working is probably best.
If you are more into the heavily geared classes, crafting armor as a blacksmith might be better.
And, I imagine you get the idea for leather workers.
For those of us with full blown Altitis, you’ll probably have plenty of alts to level these various crafts, so focus on what helps the most characters, first.
And if you aren’t leveling too quickly, it is usually a good idea to level your crafting at the same time as the main class.

Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, a resident expert on a common gamer condition called Altitis.

So, you’ve decided it is time to give in to that alt itch. Welcome.
Perhaps you are approaching a brand new game, or it is time to give your main a breather and see what the game has to offer those of our… persuasion.
Most games have a tutorial, or starter area, that begins your journey in the game.
This area is often ‘on rails’ and is designed to give you a taste of your new race, or class, and typically the game itself.
I recommend trying as many of these starter areas as you can, and not to give up too quickly on your new character.
You may find a new favorite alt with this method, and for those of us dealing with Altitis, we’ll probably end up using these characters eventually, even if they don’t shine right away.
In many games, some of the best design and game lore happens to live in these starter areas, and it would be a shame to miss out on good content.
And, even if you aren’t currently enjoying the altoholic lifestyle, this method just might help it spread to you as well.

Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, a resident expert on a common gamer condition called Altitis.

The aim of this segment is to be a guide on how best to handle being Alt Capable in the gaming world.
I’ll be approaching both playing multiple games at the same time, and how best to focus your time on games that promote having many types of characters.
As I am also Alt Capable, I will be sharing experiences and tips that I have come to find to be most effective.
I will be sampling many types of games, such as MMOs, RPGs, MOBAs, and really any type of game that allows for varied choice of character when playing.
For the most part, I will be using a bit of my own medicine and using explanations that can work on multiple games, but from time to time I will be focusing on specific games that are well designed for multiple characters.

And that, ladies and gentlemen (and anything else you might identify as), is our first segment. Let me know what you thought, as I plan to do more. Having me continue being bad at this will be on your hands otherwise!
