Too many choices

I used to be a one main sorta gal. 

This 4 80’s business has me a little torn.   I love my main.  Love.  As in I think I would be content to play my Night Elf shadow priest forever and ever and ever..  well maybe not that long but you get my drift.   My yearning to play her,  is somewhat sated by my 2nd priest, a human who while holy is still a priest.  But never satisfied.  There is just so much time and love invested in my main.  She has history – she has been places, she has all the right keys, maxed professions, including fishing cooking and first aid, full pvp gear.

I ran my holy priest into Heroic Shattered halls with a friend last night, and I had to go buy the key – stuff like that annoys me. My Main has it all already! A complete fun package – plug and play kinda toon. The other 3 are lacking in experience, in gear, in skills, in professions ect ect – while fulfilling those gaps gives me something to do – they just aren’t as ready and able as my main is to play, and by Play I mean battle ready/raid ready/bg ready. She’s got the gear, she’s got the skills, food and pots ( Frost Wyrm or resilience depending on taste requirements) I can slip in and play her at will.

Where as the others, I’m like uhuh.. I need to chant my weapon, or try and level a couple more points in engineering, and damn where are all the greater raw sagefish I need them for cooking, can’t fish for them cause none of my other 80’s have fishing on that realm,

The answer would be to transfer back…. but then I wouldn’t need to have 2 priests then.

    I totally agree with you. I have 4 80s also: a priest, deathknight, shaman, and druid (Slowly working on my warrior). I’ll always love love love my priest. My first raiding toon before BC. She has maxed out cooking & fishing which my other toons do not AND has 97 companions. I just absolutely love her. As squishy as she is, she’s simply amazing at keeping herself alive in PvP. I feel as though I’m betraying her since I stopped gearing her out (around 4800 GS) and starting raiding on my druid who are close to 5k.

    Ugh…it’s just hard to choose which one I want to be my main. My priest was my main in Classic era, Hunter/Shaman/Druid in BC era, DK/Shaman/Druid/Priest now in WOTLK era. I’m stuck between my shaman or druid as far as raiding for progression. I’ve always been a healer at heart but which healer? O_o

    Even though I dabble with alts, and enjoy playing the odd dungeon as a different character/spec I always feel… goal-less on my Alts.

    I mean, I believe the game really beings at lvl 80, and my sense of achievement comes from raiding. So when I start to think “what can I do to achieve something on my Shaman?” the amount of effort/time invested into my main seems like something that I just couldn’t repeat.

    Plus when I switch back to the Shadow Priest it’s just more fun. The day that it stops being fun I’ll think about playing something else. Until then, I’m really a 1 character girl.

      I miss raiding! – But I don’t miss being planted in front of the Pc for the time required for raiding.
      If I could do it all – work – have a life – raid 4 nights – I so would, but having now adjusted to the freedoms I would have trouble going back.

    I frequently have the same problem .. I love my disc main .. super fun .. always a good time.. I love switching her to shadow when I get the oppurtunity.. but I have been having problems getting into raids and the harder content as the realm I am in (Runetotem) doesn’t seem to like starting anything at 11pm eastern so I find myself turning to my alts to level up .. just for the sake of leveling up .. and I am doing just dungeons because I am totally burned out on quests 🙂

    Pfft come back and raid with cool kids on dath – we’ll do some kind of party or something. Something small with cake or maybe just drinking alone in a dark room. Fits the whole shadow priest emo feel right?

      think I burned too many bridges in any decent progressed guild on dath 😛 and there doesnt seem to be nice peeps & progression anymore.
      and… you calling us Shadow priests Emo! I comes from the goth generation…. they were here way before the emos,

        Yes i remember actual goths – I always imagined goth’s were less self involved, though being a country boy turn hot shot lawyer (turned public servant!!) I never really got into the goth culture – emo’s they were everywhere

    I use to be a one toon player as well, then I got his by the altoholic bug and I can’t get anything accomplished anymore. But I’ve had an attention span of a nat as of late, but alas, I only have 1 level 80 toon and a couple dozen other toons competing for attention. So, I do think its fun to play alts, but yeah, sometimes working on stuff that you’ve already done is annoying.

    My question for you is why fo you have alts. In other pvp centric games it was required. You needed buff bots on Alt Accts.. You needed Alt crafters in order to not spend valuable skills on non combat related things. Everything was done in order to logistically support your ass kicking 1 main killing machine. Your Alt problem arises from no such thing. Are you full wrath gladiator with 100k honor kills? Are you full 271 gear with all the recipes for your profession. It doesn’t sound like it. In my guild.. If a player makes an Alt before they are finished with their main.. I kick them. Granted, I’m not talking about WoW now, but in general Altitis is a sign of fail at end game. I know wow is a slightly different animal.. But in the end it comes down to one question… If you love youMinain so much, and your Alt does nothing to better that main char… WTF are u making alts ?

      My Mage is my Alchem/Herbalist My 2nd priest is my Inscriptor, Hunter is skinner & leveling engineering, and my Warlock will be my Miner/jewelcrafter. As my main is already my Tailor/Enchanter and everything she needs to use out of those professions bar 2 of the ICC Tailor patterns – I’m not raiding at the moment. I’m unlikely to see the lich king, and it hurts. But yes fail endgame explains the altitis – I have time available that used to be spent doing progression raiding, I would like to think that regardless of my non raider status I have still taken pride in my mains gear, and done what I could.
      I also have my 50k honor kills, and am now Bging a lot more to reupdate all my gear. Currenty 14k Silverwing rep off Justicar so yes I have my ongoing projects
