This year, Ababeko of Red Cow Rise hosted the Blog Azeroth Furtive Father Winter event, a secret santa guest posting event. Effy of Effraeti’s RP gifted me with this amazing guest post. Enjoy!
Happy Holidays to everyone, and especially to Windsoar, the recipient of this special Furtive Father Winter Event guest blog! Also a big Thank You! to Red Cow of Red Cow Rise for organizing the FFW Event and to Blog Azeroth our home away from our blogs and the meeting place of minds to come up with all these wonderful events to keep us motivated.
For those of you who may not be familiar, I am Effy. I write the blog Effraeti’s RP, which is a conglomeration of short stories, transmogging ideas, roleplaying thoughts, raiding adventures and any other thing that I come up with – usually relating to World of Warcraft, but not always.
I had to do some serious research on Jaded Alt to try and determine someplace where we might overlap in subject matter until I finally circled back to the obvious. As you might hazard to guess from the title “Jaded Alt,” Windsoar has her very own collection of alts on WoW.
Bingo! I have lots of alts too!
After reading her post Making a Buck While Leveling Alt No. 2349, I tried her technique myself. I quickly realized that a heavy schedule of questing and collecting to level did not quite work for me. (And selling everything?! *gasp!* How can I be a packrat without numerous bankalts loaded down with low level mats and gear I will probably never use??) ><
Windsoar’s idea was great. I just really wish I could level an alt and actually MAKE money that way, rather than barely breaking even. Small jaunts of questing are about all I can manage, which probably sounds weird since I am such a lore geek.
So in a sister post to Windsoar’s, here is an Effy guide to leveling alts. This technique has earned me entirely too many toons over the past six months or so and now it can for you too!
