Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, your guide in treating a common gamer condition called Altitis.

Having trouble finding those legendaries? Let’s game the system.
As of Patch 7.2 in Legion, the anti bad luck code for getting legendaries has been tweaked a bit.
The chance of getting that shiny orange texted treasure is now calculated on a per spec basis.
If your main spec seems tapped out on legendary luck, try setting your loot specialization to an off spec.
Of course, this works best if you already have the gear you want for your main spec, and off spec is gear compatible with your main spec.
Then again, maybe getting a shiny new legendary for your off spec might just lead you down a new main spec path of fun and excitement.

Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, your guide in treating a common gamer condition called Altitis.

Are your alts artifact power feeling a bit on the low side? Let’s try giving it a boost.
For those that have been focusing on a main character this expansion, your Artifact Power is probably pretty high due to Artifact Knowledge gains.
It’s that fun multiplier that makes the Artifact Power you find in the game go much further than before.
On your new alts however, you’re back down to what seems like grains of sand trying to fill a whole beach.
Your main character can share at least a bit of the Artifact Knowledge they’ve learned, though.
If you check the merchant section of your Artifact Researcher, you can purchase a catch up book that is at most 5 levels below your main character’s Artifact Knowledge level.
Once you use this catch up book, your alts only need to earn the last few levels on their own and they will be at equal footing.
Before you know it, all members of your max level Alt Army will feel just as powerful as your main, and ready to take on the new content.

Greetings Gamers. This is Mewkow, your guide in treating a common gamer condition called Altitis.

Now that we’re all settled in Legion, it’s time for our alts.
More than likely, you’ve been focusing on a main character up until now, due to how Legion has been designed.
You are more likely to spend time working on your alternate class specs, rather than alts, due to how your artifacts work.
However, with 7.1.5 out, and 7.2 coming, it’s time to start waking those alts up from storage.
If you haven’t already done so, it is highly recommended that you log each one of them in.
In order to accrue that useful rested experience buff, you need to have logged into them after Legion’s start.
In time, you should have a fully charged rested experience pool to get going on your latest Alt adventure.

Timeless, and always relevant, we discuss…The Darkmoon Faire.
In it’s current iteration, the Faire seems almost made explicitly for alts.
Need a little boost in profession leveling? The Faire has you covered.
Collecting battle pets? The Faire has some unique ones for you to buy and earn.
Need an extra boost in leveling your alts? The carousel and Darkmoon Top Hat can help there.
While you have been busy on the island, you’ve been collecting Darkmoon tickets.
These tickets can purchase Heirlooms, Transmog items, pets, toys, and some extra flavor items.
Just be careful when exploring, I hear that fluffy little bunny is pretty killer.

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

With the Pre-Patch in full swing, let’s focus on…our Alts.
While there is already plenty to do with the 7.0 patch in play, alts are worth the focus.
If you still have any alts in that level 90 to 100 range, the experience needed has been greatly reduced, making the process faster than ever.
You should also give your various alts and their specs a full run through to see how you like them.
You might even find yourself switching your ‘main’ character to something new, due a total class overhaul.
And for those of us with multiples of a class; worry not.
Even though all specs are now open to us with the click of a button, the Legion artifact weapon you choose has a major impact.
Multiple class alts means multiple artifact quest lines to experience, just in time for the lore buffet to begin.

With Warlords of Draenor winding down, we gather gold from…the Garrison Inn.
If you aren’t logging into your army of garrisons to grind on your alts, you might be missing out on a way to make them useful for the future.
With the next expansion approaching, it is a good idea to start preparing yours alts for the journey ahead.
If you don’t mind a bit of dungeon and mission grinding, you can make a rather lucrative amount of gold with an inn.
Once you have you level 1 inn, you can go on special quests for caches of items and gold in dungeons.
These caches will also contain a bit of garrison resources and apexis crystals, useful for now, but not so much in Legion.
After upgrading to level 3, your inn will cause lucrative missions to appear in your mission table, often for several hundreds in gold.
Employ the services of the headhunter, who can give you a new follower every week with a gold multiplier, and you can easily earn thousands.
Now is the time to get ready. You wouldn’t want to show up at the Legion expansion copperless, because it may be the demons, not Illidan, explaining how YOU ARE NOT PREPARED.

Grinding levels on another alt? Why not tackle…the Gorgrond Trophies of Glory.
In a previous segment, I explained how Gorgrond was a great zone to grind when you are on the road to level 100.
In particular though, a meaty chunk of experience comes in the form of trophy collecting, specifically from larger game.
There are eight targets in total, all a fair harder challenge than your typical questing monster, but worth the effort.
You will find them making a sort of circle around Highpass on the map, and each one drops a quest starter that you want to hold on to.
First, there are the plant based monsters: Biolante and Fungal Praetorian.
After these, you’ll want to keep an eye on for Charl Doomwing and Roardan the Sky Terror, two flying Rylaks.
Crater Lord Igneous, Erosian the Violent, and Dessicus of the Dead Pools are more elemental based monsters, and have hard hits to prove it.
Finally, Khargax the Devourer will finish the round-up.
Once complete, head to your Garrison outpost in Gorgrond.
Here, you can finally activate all eight quests, and turn them in all at once.
This allows you to first pop an experience potion and the more potent elixir, and get an easy level of experience in the process.
Bring a friend to tackle these critters, and you’ll be done before these mini-bosses know what hit them.

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

Need a vacation? Ready to hang out with some goblins? It’s time to explore…Pinchwhistle Point.
Don’t worry, this isn’t a Horde only area. The Pinchwhistle goblins will take help from anyone offering it.
They offer pretty worthwhile rewards for that help, if you follow the quest line to the end.
If you have been following the Spires of Arak main quest line, you should get an invite to head down to Pinchwhistle Point, or you can head down yourself at about level 97.
Here, you will find a group of goblins dealing with some pesky fungus, and in need of some heroics.
With the Arak garrison outpost experience bonus, and the usual setup of leveling gear and experience potions, you should get at least a level from the full set.
There are also a number of rare monsters, and bonus objective areas nearby, that will be a great boost to your leveling.
You will also be rewarded with the Scrapyard blueprints for your garrison, something that will produce some useful scrap from garrison missions, especially if you upgrade it to level 3.
Don’t leave too quickly though, because you will also be offered a new garrison follower once the quest line is complete.
This follower will start at level 97, which will be rather useful. It is also an engineer, which will be useful if you happen to have the engineering craft shop.
On top of all the useful perks, the quest line is interesting, and a quick finish especially if you have flight. You did get flight, right?

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.
