Actually I think playing a myriad of alts really can strengthen your main's performance (and in the interest of full disclosure, I am an unabashed altaholic -- with 4, nearly 5 80s and about six ot seven 70+).The reason I believe this is, let's take your average rogue. I'm using a rogue as an example because a rogue is a very pure class -- he can't heal, he can't tank, he can only DPS and only from melee. Now let's have this rogue roll a tank. The rogue suddenly has a whole new perspective on the game -- that of a tank who has to actually WORK to hold aggro, and how that's done. The rogue, assuming he's competent and actually strives to learn about his new class, now understands how to be a good DPSer a lot more and how to help the tank and not pull aggro from him.Things like that... switching your role around, seeing things from another role's shoes, can really make you a better all around player, just because of the perspective.Even if he really stinks at his tank, he's still come out of it a better rogue.
