Every  new expansion presents a plethora of choices to make
for players and
World of Warcraft Cataclysm is no different. One of the more difficult
that an expansion pack presents is whether to push onward with your
current character or to finally demote your main to an alt
and start out fresh. Join us here at Ten Ton Hammer as we explore the
pros and cons of changing and also provide some suggestions on how to
make each choice feel like the right one.

Giving up your
character who has been your representation of yourself
in game for possibly your entire WoW career is no small matter. In fact
if I may be so bold for players like me who are more than a little
attached to their characters, creating a new “main”
is almost like marrying your mistress. Sure she may be hotter, younger,
and make the game fresh, but how long will the novelty really last?

Alts vs. Leveling Your Main Past 80.
