I think that for me it was wanting to have classes that were useful for different things.My priest was my first "raiding" character but I hated it. I was getting all this loot, and it was great, but it was really only helping me to raid/heal better. When I wanted to farm for mats/gold, I couldn't do it.Alt-tastic time. My warrior eased those pains a bit, but it was hard to get a foot in the door as freshly-60 warrior when you've got a geared out priest waiting that your guild knows about. :)Paladin at 60 was too boring. Like my priest, but with plate....Druid was next on the healing classes list, and I actually enjoy that one the most out of all my level 60+ alts. She's been the first to get to 70, and the gear that she got from raiding was actually useful while she leveled.Rogue came after that, but grinding/farming wasn't as easy as I anticipated. Especially since she was geared/specced to be a raiding rogue (combat daggers was the rage at the time) so her farming got gimped.Hunter was the final 60+ that got leveled up. Much more grind-tastic but he never got to raid so his gear is pretty awful. It's getting better now that he's in Outland though.Of course, during the time between when raiding stopped, and BC started I realized I really loved PvP. Unfortunately in our BG the queues for alliance are horrible. 15-20 minutes for WSG, 30-45 minutes for AB, 1-2 hours for AV. I just couldn't take it and re-rolled horde. My horde mage is around level 40 now, but I decided that I'd like to try the other two classes that I hadn't played yet. My shaman is at 29 and is in the twink bracket while not being twinked. She's just there to get her rewards and then she'll move up. My warlock is 24ish and is a ton of fun to PvP with. I have a feeling that I'll get my mage to 70 (between playing my alliance alts all to 70) and then start work on the warlock or shaman.I'm just hoping that I can get them *all* up there before the next expansion hits. Then I'll have one of each class at level cap. Between the SO and myself, we've also got every single profession covered, and most of the specialties (only missing one blacksmithing WS specialty (hammersmith)). I think that her original reason for rolling the army o alts was for profession based reasons. :)
