    How to make a good Banking Alt!

    Hello, in this guide I will show you how to make a succesfull, and goodlooking Banking Alt.
    I will mainly go for the Alliance side, Because I don't have that much experience with Horde.

    First of all, you have to choose a race & a class.
    This is completely up to you, but it will affect your final outfit.

    Race


    Alliance Races

    • Human - Easy walk to Stormwind, can be Paladin.
    • Nightelf - Bit longer way, and many fierce Mobs on the way, to Darnassus.
    • Dwarf - Rather long walk to Ironforge, can be Paladin.
    • Gnome - Rather long walk to Ironforge, easy to run around with, and if you rob the bank, they wont notice you (;
    • Draenei - About the same as Darnassus, but no Mobs on the way. Exodar is a bit tricky.

    Horde Races


    • Orc - Not too long to Orggrimmar, you can just Auto-run almost the whole way. Zeppelin to Undercity. (Orcs look great with Tuxedo set)
    • Undead - Long and dangerous way to Undercity. Good transportation, crystal to Silvermoon, and Zeppelin to Orggrimmar.
    • Tauren - Not long away from Thunderbluff, but hard to get to other cities, unless summoned.
    • Troll - Not too long to Orggrimmar, you can just Auto-run almost the whole way. Zeppelin to Undercity.
    • Bloodelf - Good transportation, the crystal to Undercity, and then Zeppelin to Orggrimmar.


    Class

    You can pick whichever class you want, the only thing you have to think about is how you want your final gear to look like.
    For this I would recommend Warrior/Paladin, simply because they can wear both leather & cloth, along with their mail.
    If you plan to level it to 10, then you might just think a little bit more about which class you'll choose.
    Example: If you want to be able to dual-wield, then go for rogue (Dual Blacksmith's hammer look great)
    Or if you want a bearbank, take a druid.
    If you want Ultrafast-banking, level either a Hunter, or a Mage, to level 20, for Aspect of the Cheetah and Blink.


    Place

    Here, you might aswell just take the place you like the most.
    But if you take a closer look at the location of the bank/mail of the different cities, you might make your job easier.

    Alliance Cities
    • Stormwind - Good place. The Mailbox is right outside the Bank and the Auction House is pretty close too. Best place to /2
    • Darnassus - Quiet place, which means nearly no lag. Bank & Mailbox is extremely close to each other, but AH is far away. Nearly no trades here.
    • Ironforge - AH, Bank & Mailbox is close - another good place. Nearly as good as Stormwind for /2'ing
    • Exodar - The Mailbox and Auction house are not very far away, about the same distance as the Ironforge Bank and Mailbox. Nearly no trades occurs here.

    Horde Cities
    • Orggrimmar - Bank & Mail is close, AH a bit longer. Best place if you are /2'ing
    • Undercity - Quiet place, a bit far from bank to AH, and Mail. Second best place, also many trades are here. Also if you like jumping, this is the place for you (;
    • Thunderbluff - Things are close here, but nearly no trades occurs here.
    • Silvermoon - Nice, and quiet city. Nearly no trades occurs here.



    You could also make a Neutral AH banker, but the things doesn't sell that well on these.

    _______________________________________________________________________________

    Now that you have made you character, and chosen where to be, you can move on to your gear selection.

    Gear





    Addons


    These addons will greatly improve you efficiency, so go download them already!



    You could use different Addons, but you need something for the AH, something to manage your mail, and whatever you need to make it easier for you.

    this is definetly copy paste sry to say i know it by
    "Stormwind - Good place. The Mailbox is right outside the Bank and the Auction House is pretty close too. Best place to /2
    Darnassus - Quiet place, which means nearly no lag. Bank & Mailbox is extremely close to each other, but AH is far away. Nearly no trades here."

    in 1.0 /2 wasnt linked and that was a looong time ago and this is reffering too unlinked /2 by saying good place for /2 and nearly no trades cuz if theyre linked every city has the same trades so this is pulled out an old archive sry
    Life is like a box of chocolates. It doesn't last that long for fat people.

    It's possible he just found it somewhere... let me go check.

    EDIT: no he didn't.

    I made this from scratch. What i mean, is that if someone is selling something, they problary isn't located in Darnassus, because it's quite quiet. And I'll add the Minor Speed enchant, on boots (:
