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

If you are into the art of collecting, why not use your Alt Army for…pet collecting.
While your inventory of battle pets might be account wide, you can use every last one of your alts to gather them.
For your max level alts, you can find pets in just about every raid, and usually at a better drop rate than mounts.
If you want less of a time investment, you can also find them in some dungeons.
That lovely garrison of yours can also drop pets in missions, and you’ll even find them in the shipyard.
In all of these cases, the more alts you have, the more chances you have to make them drop.
You will also find a number of ways to get pets during the various holiday events through the year.
Having your alts gather holiday currency can be quite effective, and for random drop pets, each alt will get its own chance.
And, even if it is best to pick one of your alts as your main pet battler, you can still use your Alt Army to gather all of them.
Of course, I’ll be a bit busier doing my favorite type of collecting as I level every class and race. Gotta level them all.

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

Let’s dig deeper in the use of our Alt Army with… Mount collecting.
The World of Warcraft has mounts stashed all over its worlds, in just about every place you can think of.
As mentioned previously, an abundant source of mounts can be found in most raids, with varying success.
This can also be said of dungeons, which may be a bit easier to get into, and certainly faster.
If you pay attention to the meta raiding achievements, you will find quite a few mounts that are granted after gaining the right ones.
Having an army of alts means you can retry these instances over and over each day and week until the instance servers get tired of you.
Believe me, it does happen, as I have seen how quickly a full set of alts can get the fun ‘Too many instances’ message.
For those alts that have fully powered garrisons and well geared followers, they too will have chances at mounts from various missions; all the more reason to check them regularly.
But if all of this seems like too much work, you can get plenty of mounts with all the gold you’ve been earning with that Alt Army, as long as they aren’t gathering dust in the garrison.

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

Now that you have a growing alt army, let’s have some fun in…Old Raids.
WoW has a lot of fun old content in the form of raids, and those raids are full of goodies.
At level 100, any class can very easily run through just about every old raid so far, except those in Pandaria.
These old raids are chock full of all types of gear, which can be stored for later use in transmog.
If you save the gear that fits your class, you will be able to transmog with it, and in Legion, unlock that gear style for all characters of a similar gear type.
You can also pass around any non-bound gear to alts that can be used on their transmog, or even sell this gear on the auction house.
Many old raids also have a chance to drop mounts, and even battle pets, as you take out bosses one by one.
You will also find it is rather easy to earn special raid achievements that might be part of a meta achievement that grants titles or even more mounts.
In general, you will find you can gather a decent amount of gold during this process, provided you are looting everything you kill.
And don’t forget, once you finish with one alt, you have an entire army waiting to do it all again for fun and profit.

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

One of most useful skills in Draenor for alts to have is…Flight.
When you are on the march to build a large Alt Army, you tend look for ways to speed up the process.
Finding the experience boosts is great, finding the meatier chunks of experience is important, but you have to get there first.
While Blizzard originally complained that flight in Draenor would bypass a lot of the content, once you are on your third alts, you’ve seen it all.
One of the ways you know you’ve seen it all, is in the process of earning Draenor Pathfinder, the meta achievement for flight.
The achievements needed have you exploring the entire map, finding treasures, completing zone quest achievements, and running apexis dailies.
By the time you have completed these requirements, you’ve seen the content, and earned flight many times over.
Some of the more challenging parts of the meta occur in Tanann Jungle, grinding reputation with a new set of factions there.
If you haven’t already tackled this task, it is best done on whatever you consider your primary character, since earning it will go account wide.
Your future alts will thank you for the speed and convenience, and you’ll have an Alt Army to 100 in no time.
