Episode 46: Leveling Your “Alts”

8 Jan

My kids haven’t quite approached this level yet

Click below for the audio segment:

My daughter is now 8 years old, and although she’s been exposed a little to World of Warcraft, I’m now allowing her to dive in deep. She has a level 8 pandaren hunter, but wanted to start a blood elf mage to “mix it up.” Now, Earthen Ring is full of my characters, so I put her on another server, but as she was picking her blood elf hair color and earrings, it struck me that Blizzard now allows cross-realm mail for account-bound items! We shrieked in joy when I told her that I could give her very powerful gear that she wouldn’t need to replace until level 80 or 85! I then sent her all of the cloth heirloom items, two trinkets, and a staff. Even as a true noob, she was one-shotting trees, undead, and lion cubs near Falconwing Square. She also has a 55% boost to her leveling experience. So, if YOU have a kid’s alt or an alt of your own on another realm, don’t forget to send across those heirlooms, but sorry, you can’t send gold.

Hey, my wife and I have been hosting a parenting podcast, called Kids are Hard, for about 3 years, and after a haitus for the last few months, we’re back with a new episode and will have new ones every 2 weeks. So, if you’re a parent, or you want good birth control if you’re not, head on over to kidsarehard.wordpress.com to find our podcasts and shownotes, and follow us on twitter and facebook @kidsarehard.

You can also follow me @epicdiapers and epicdiapers.com!

Remember, you can also hear my segments on The Instance, Rawrcast, The AIE Podcast and Convert to Raid.
