At one time I had 27 alts (including several banks) and this has now been reduced to 10 plus 6 banks on my secondary account. I actually have a few other alts on other servers in case my goes down but that doesn't happen much.Why so many alts? I don't believe that one class is truly better or worse than the other. Each have a role to play in Azeroth - or the Outlands - and each have strengths and weakneses. I intend to find all of these over time, find them and learn how to work around them. By understanding your enemy you understand your fight. So when I am with one character and in PvP, I'm actually thinking about their moves as much, if not more, than mine. I wanted to experience alt talent trees without costly respecs. Now I have cut down on my alts because I have found the 'zone' of exactly who I want and where I want them to go. After 18 months of player - which I have really enjoyed - I have found a new direction in grounding the players I have into my guild culture. With them spanning a wide range of levels it also means I can be on hand to help junior players in the guild without having to 'run them through' instances. Personal point of view but in my mind it is all about learning and the learning curve each character creates. I have found that those who rely only on a high level character running them through a dungeon tend to miss out on vital party skills for that class. We certainly won't run anyone in our guild through an instance with a high level character until they have attempted it 5 times with others who are at level.So, in all this blather, I'd like to say that many alts have their bonuses and benefits and help you enjoy the game ever more taking your playing skills to the next level!
