wow Pimp Your Bank Alt!

5 posts in this topic


So you've got the gold and a bank alt, but are stuck on how to make him/her look fancy? Here are some  cool ideas for your bank alt twink!

Bank Alts

You may ask what their purpose is. Easy put, many players hate having their auctions scattered across several characters, which is why they use a bank alt. The second reason is Inventory space. The most typical bank alt will be a Level 1 character with access to an own guild bank. Some players like to take their bank alts a level further, either to show off how much gold they make or just for aesthetic pleasure so they spend a ridiculous amount of gold on bank alt equipment.

Note that most of the gear contains rare (0.X%) drops and other expensive items, so expect to spend gold for your bank alt twink.

Slot-by-slot Itemization - Gear

Skipping the following slots:


  • The only item you can equip at Level 1 that looks aesthetically appealing is Mantle of the Fire FestivalMantle of the Fire Festival, but it requires Midsummer to be up.
  • Other shoulder armor looks rubbish on your twink.


  • Even though you can equip certain necks, they do not visually alternate your character (not even with a buff).


  • To make your outfit look classy, you should definitely hide your cloak.


  • We're skipping gloves.


  • You don't want to ruin your sexy robe with a bad looking belt, do you?


  • They are not of importance as they won't be much visible if you're wearing a robe. You can easily keep the ones you start with at Level 1.


  • There's no real reason to add trinkets to make your alt visually appealing, but if you need any, you'd have to level up your Engineering for Gnomish Universal RemoteGnomish Universal Remote.

Now let's move on to the important slots!


If you're more into monocles there are several items to look for






If you're wearing a robe, skip pants.


  • The best ring you can buy is Eternal Black Diamond RingEternal Black Diamond Ring sold by Haris Pilton. It's even a toy, so it's shared across all your characters. It adds a big shiny diamond ring. Costs 5,000 Gold. It also adds a buff to make you more noticeable, saying "Look at the size of that diamond."

Weapon Slot



All pets with an extremely low drop rate or TCG pets will do.

  • Spectral CubSpectral Cub for example.
  • If you're looking for real exclusivity, go buy a Murky pet that was gifted to all who attended BlizzCon 2005 in person. It can be purchased for several thousand dollars. Here's the achievement - MurkyMurky.
  • An alternative would be Mini TyraelMini Tyrael from the Paris Worldwide Invitation 2008 goodie bag.


Here you'll find some sample appearances.

  • Variation 1
    • Top hat, tuxedo armor, cane weapon, without a tabard.
  • Variation 2
    • Ruby Shades, Formal Dangui, wine bottle as weapon & glass as off-hand.
  • Variation 3
    • Black Embersilk Gown, wine bottle as main weapon & off-hand glass.
  • Variation 4
    • Haliscan set + monocle.

Nice guide, but, and zero offense meant, this is kinda meh - I mean, sure, if you want your bank alt to look like every other lvl1 or 5 bank alt out there, this is a good place to start. But honestly - we don't need anymore tuxedo'd diamond tipped cane'd bank alts running around - Just lacks originality. Again, no offense meant - I just think you can get a little more creative.

Feedback is always fantastic to have, whether it is good or bad. Thanks for leaving the comment and I'm sure our writers can look back at it and improve in the future! :)

      The first micro-holiday, Call of the Scarab, brings with it a gold-making opportunity. Selling meat can be profitable.
      Warlord Gorchuk and Master Sergeant Fizzlebolt are Meat vendors and you can find them near the Scarab Gong in Silithus for the duration of the event. They allow the turn-in of 20 pieces of various meat for 20 Alliance Qiraji Commendations // 20 Horde Qiraji Commendations per turn-in for your faction.
      The following meat can be farmed and resold on the Auction House.

      Pet Battle Dungeons are here. So far, only Wailing Caverns are available for testing. It's a scenario with 7 stages and increasing difficulty, where you fight your way up to get an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone and eventually, Damp Pet Supplies.
      Pet Battle Dungeons
      If you have at least one level 25 pet, go to Dalaran and talk to Serr'ah. She will offer a quest called A Call from the Caverns.  Teleport to Orgrimmar and go to Crossroads. There you'll have to find Muyani. She offers another quest Wailing Critters, which rewards Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. Talk to her again and you will enter a scenario (Scenario: Wailing Critters) with 7 stages. Wailing Caverns is the only pet battle dungeon that's currently available and it functions like a scenario. You will be fighting pets and the difficulty increases as you progress through stages. You are able to Revive Battle Pets inside dungeons. When you complete the quest and turn it in, you will be offered another weekly quest, but this time, you won't be able to revive or heal your pets - Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns. When complete, you'll get Damp Pet Supplies. The bag contains some of the recently added pets. New Pets

      Patch 7.2 adds a new dungeon called Cathedral of Eternal Night. Drops from existing dungeons had an item level bump, Karazhan has been split into two and Vantus Runes are coming for Mythic+ dungeons.
      Dungeon Changes
      Health of enemies inside dungeons has been increased. To compensate, the item level of items that drop inside dungeons has been increased. Normal difficulty - item level 825+ Heroic difficulty - item level 845+ Mythic difficulty - item level 865+ The changes are really good as dungeons will stay relevant throughout the expansion. In previous expansions, dungeons were only used for initial gearing and for the daily dungeon bonus. Karazhan has been split into Lower / Upper Karazhan and can be now accessed via Dungeon Finder. Mythic+ Dungeons
      Are receiving Vantus Runes in 7.2. You can use one per dungeon / week.
      Vantus Rune: Black Rook Hold Vantus Rune: Cathedral of Eternal Night Vantus Rune: Court of Stars Vantus Rune: Darkheart Thicket Vantus Rune: Eye of Azshara Vantus Rune: Halls of Valor Vantus Rune: Maw of Souls Vantus Rune: Neltharion's Lair Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Lower) Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Upper) Vantus Rune: Vault of the Wardens Vantus Rune: Violet Hold Vantus Rune: The Arcway Tomb of Sargeras Vantus Runes
      Vantus Rune: Demonic Inquisition Vantus Rune: Fallen Avatar Vantus Rune: Fel Titan Vantus Rune: Goroth Vantus Rune: Harjatan the Bludger Vantus Rune: Kil'jaeden Vantus Rune: Mistress Sassz'ine Vantus Rune: Sisters of the Moon Vantus Rune: The Desolate Host Vantus Rune: Tomb of Sargeras What do you think about Vantus Runes being added to Mythic+ dungeons?
