Most wow players consider that the alt in wow is boring and useless. They just use alt to learn more classes and professions to enrich their skills in order to get more rewards. What’s the fun of alt exactly?
In fact, you can benefit a lot. Here are some experiences about interesting usage of farming alts.
1. A trading alt can save you a lot of time on farming.
Almost every players complains that it’s wasting them a lot of time to run back and forth between the farming sports and trading city. But if you create a trading alt, you can save more time on farming, because you can email items to the alt on the same server and faction.
2. Do you want to farm gold faster?
Having a dedicated farming alt will allow more unusual profession combinations among the player's other characters. Ideally a farming alt would have two of the three gathering professions, such as skinning, herbalism and mining. These will help you to get much needed gold.
3. You can use alt to trade when buying wow gold.
As farming is a time-taking work, many players don’t have time to farm wow gold. In this case, you can create an alt to trade and then delete it, so that no recode can be traced (In order to protect your wow account don't do this frequently), but please remember to transfer the gold out first before deleting.
