Friday Five: 5 Reasons to Roll an Opposite Faction Alt Today

I was not the one that made Jaina cry

  1. Your Icecrown Citadel raid and 5-man content, and the Wrathgate chain, have some distinct differences depending upon what side you’re playing for.
  2. Each starting zone has its own unique flavor, and causes you to look through that zone with a whole new lense.
  3. Cataclysm is going to bring significant changes to much of the old world content, so if you don’t do it now, you may never have the opportunity to see many of the places/do many of the quests that tell the old stories of the scourge.
  4. The other side has better candy.
  5. You just might make some new friends who will help your future worgen/goblin alt steamroll through leveling post-Cataclysm.

P.S. I didn’t make Jaina cry. She was crying when I got there! You have no proof of these foul accusations!

  1. I’ve played Alli for five years. Rolled several horde alts but never made it past lvl 25 for most of them. I’ve done all the starter zones and then get stuck. Recently started playing the tauren druid again and got her to 30.
    Not wanting to slog all the way to 80, I had the brilliant idea of rolling a horde-side DK to see BC and Wrath content. I don’t know why I never thought of that before! I’m having fun on my troll DK. Plus significant changes to DK mechanics since I rolled my first one (one month after Wrath released) means I actually like playing the class now.
    So opposing-faction DK may be a ‘cheat’ way of trying out the other side for the first time.

  2. Totally agree that if leveling is a snorefest, the DK gives a good opportunity to miss out on the 30-50 dead zone of content. And it also gives you a toon that can financially support those baby alts should you wish to go back to them at some point.
