Agreed, Amanda. While I am particularly attached to my resto druid and invest far more time into her than any other character, I do have several other characters at or approaching level 85. Personally, the experience of being those other classes hasn't helped me much on my druid (I levelled as resto pre-LFD tool - which was really, really stupid but damn if I don't know the class/spec inside and out), but it has helped me on my other characters - my healer and tank awareness is well-honed from my healing experience, and I feel playing damage and tank classes give me an interesting and unique perspective on the raid. So, personally I think alt-leveling is extremely valuable. And, if you're in the same role as your main, I think you're actually in a really great place. I can pick up any other kind of healer class and learn the spells and talents, and do very well simply because I'm used to the healer mentality. Is it hard for me to switch from a healer to a damage dealer? Hell yes, but that's why I don't raid on my other-role alts, because I know my skill is inferior.
