Nev from Auction House Addict has created a community project for the gold makers among us 20 Days of Gold Making You can find a list of all of the participants in this blog post at AH addict. Today's question is:
Do you keep the same banker alt or do you change them up occasionally? Why?
A long. long time ago when Evlyxx was questing in Tanaris, bags were very expensive, flights only went one stop and there was only an Alliance Auction House in Ironforge. This meant that selling things on the Auction House was a very time consuming process. I was moaning about this and my WoW mentor of the time Kittiah, asked why I didn't have an alt character that I used as an auction monkey? I replied that it had never occured to me to do that and promptly created a 2nd human priest and Wilkini was born.
Eventually I found a need to level Wilkini and created a new auction monkey, a rogue named Bevlyxx (So named because she was the Bank of Evlyxx, no really), she too was levelled and eventually replaced by my warlock, Strigimaga who was originally rolled as a 19 twink but that ended when she too was levelled during Wrath and I then moved onto my death knight, Nobunaga who was rolled purely to experience the starting zone.
To this day he is my primary auction house character and he sells all the odds and ends that I gather on my travels around Azeroth, Pandaria and Outland as well as things like transmog gear and the items I flip from the auction house. My crafters look after their own auction house sales so he isn't my only "banker alt" but he is the one.
