    An "Alt" is an alternative character to the one you play most often. So for example if you play the game 1 hour a day everyday and 6 hours you play your Shaman and then the other 1 hour you play your Druid, your Druid would be called an "Alt".

    If paying monthly is getting to you, you could always buy WoW game cards from most game retailers. Then if you don't feel like playing for a month you just don't top up.

    If I know I'm not going to be playing for a month or more I'll cancel my monthly subscription, your characters and progress are still saved (although I'm not sure for how long).

    I agree with this, this is what a lot of the students do at my school because they use their pocket money. On the character side of things they are never deleted. I deleted a char of mine and changed my mind 3 years later and they managed to recover it for me.

    I would re-roll an alt with the massives...

    Does anyone know if you can send heirloom items to your chars on different servers?

    I don't think it's possible. You might be lucky with the free migration and could put the char across

    If you can't easy way to solve that would be to all roll on whatever server you're currently on. Providing it's not full and no one has any objections.

    I'm on Silvermoon currently. It's heavily populated, PvE but I'm in a huge PVP / Social guild where we do Arenas, Rated BGs etc. Silvermoon has like 20k alliance and 2k horde, it's good for leveling as it's so alliance populated. Lot's of guilds recruiting with the +10% experience buff.

    If we were all re rolling we'd create our own guild no?

    I saw someone mention if they had a good guild for help etc. So would be good if the guild gave us all the added experience gain. Although if we were to create our own, we could level it up to get the same gains, in time of course.

    Heirlooms can be transferred if you put them in a character's bags then transfer them to another server.
