The first name I had decided on for Kinlai was Ninasol. I wanted to use the name "Nina" as a tribute to a female norwegian Tae Kwon Do-athlete that I admire a lot. Eventually I decided the name felt wrong, and she ended up as Kinlai. Two months ago I decided I wanted to level a second monk. Kinlai had never leveled 1-80, and it was about time to experience the lower levels as a monk! Still wanting to use "Nina", I landed on Ninasan. Like Daniel-san from Karate Kid.
Ninasan is my only character on the Eonar-server. She isn't too lonely over there though, because she is in the guild Alias, a guild that my guild befriended a couple of months ago. We actually met Alias in Throne of Thunder raid finder, when both our guilds were having "raid finder nights". I added their GM's Battle Tag, and we continued to do "raid finder fridays" together with them. Now in 5.4, we've been doing flex raids fridays and saturdays together, and actually been raiding with 25 people! They're great people, and it's nice to have Ninasan in a safe place. :)

I didn't have heirlooms for her, but the leveling went very quick. She leveled mostly as Windwalker, as I miss that spec after Kinlai changed to tank. I also tanked some dungeons here and there when the queues were getting too long. I soloed half of Zul'Farrak in Brewmaster-spec after everyone left after the last boss when I was in there. I did my usual leveling thing; starting in Azuremyst and Bloodmyst, and queueing for specific dungeons to get all dungeon quests done, and also to not have to see each dungeon more than one time. After 13 days she was 90! She spent a couple of days at level 90 to gear up; she did all raid finders and world bosses, and very quickly was over 500 item level. But then the same thing happened to her as all my other alts... It is so sad! But they inevitably reach the end station. After playing them almost every day for weeks, suddenly there is nothing left to do with them. :'(

Except for Saturday two weeks ago! Kinlai had done flex part 1 on friday, but there were people that wanted to go on saturday as well. Instead of taking Kinlai through a second time, I brought Ninasan in as tank. :) There's a huge difference between tanking on a 540-geared monk with legendaries and set bonuses, and a 500-geared monk with neither! Ninasan has lower haste, so the energy regen was noticeable worse. Her health was jumping up and down, she felt so much squishier! Scary experience, but she came out of it with the white robe she wears in the top picture. :)
How do you handle alts that are max level? Do you try to play all of them now and then, or do you let them rest until next level jump?
