And yet, many players have them, still. This is anecdotal evidence at best, and pure anecdote at worst, but I have yet to come across a single WoW player who has just one character that they focus on. The players that Mists was ostensibly designed for seem to elude me in-game, so I have widened my search accordingly, to the readership of WoW Insider's Breakfast Topics.
Do you have alts? Do you have alts now, in Mists? Or did you abandon them at level 85, forever restricted to the world of dragons, souls and the Twilight Highlands? For clarity, I'm principally interested in max-level alts, geared for or being geared for raiding or PvP. Do tell me more about the quantity and quality in the comments, I didn't want an overly-long poll!
|I only have one max-level character, and have for some time.||764 (12.1%)|
|I had alts in Cataclysm, but not in Mists.||1465 (23.1%)|
|I have alts now, and also did in Cataclysm.||3878 (61.2%)|
|I had no alts in Cataclysm, but have alts in Mists.||233 (3.7%)|
