Thanks to the great story lines for all of the classes, it is quite easy to become an “altohollic” in SWOTR. But, if you haven’t created an alt yet, you may want to do so in order to help out your main character. How does an alt help out your main character? Consider the following:
- Place an alt next to a mailbox and GTN terminal. That way, you can mail your unwanted items to them and they can retrieve them in order to sell them. I have my alt hanging out on the Republic Fleet just waiting to sell the schematics and purple items that I can’t use on my main character. (Make sure your alt is of the same faction, or you won’t be able to mail items to them.)
- Since your alt is near a GTN terminal, you have quick access to auction listings. If there is something you are looking for, just log on with your alt and start browsing the listings.
- Alts automatically come with their own inventory space. If you run out of your own inventory space and don’t want to pay the additional credits to upgrade, send your excess inventory to your alt and have them store it for a while.
- You can start crafting with your alt as well, using leftover materials from your main character. For example, my main character is a synthweaver, but I chose artifice for my alt with slicing instead of archeology. That way, I can send my extra crystals and artifacts to my alt to use while I also have the benefit of slicing on a character.
