You have Two Days to Buy an Alt

Hey everyone.  Alfa Q again.  In case you weren't aware, Arena Net has decided to slash the price of Guild Wars 2 by a whopping 75%!!!  That is only $10 for an account!  For the low price of $10, there are several ways that you can utilize an alt account to its potential to make gold faster.  Please note that this offer is from March 6-8 and it may take you a little bit of time to break even (can be done in a week if you are fast enough).  

Double the Dungeons
By buying an alt account, you can make approximately 40g every day just doing dungeon runs.  That is a total of 80g a day if you also run all the dungeons on your main!!!  Of course, in order to do all the dungeons, you must be level 80.  A few days in EOTM can get you to 80 easily with xp boosters (I have done it in about three days on several characters).

Double the World Boss Rewards
You can slay world bosses two times a day with an alt character.  A great way to obtain tons of ectoplasm (from rares) and more chances at exotic weapons from the world boss chests!

Double the Daily Log In Bonus
A full cycle will yield the following total rewards:
 Just from logging in daily, you can receive 55 laurels which can be converted to 165 T6 materials!  That's around 16g a month for just going onto your account and clicking on the daily chest!  In addition to receiving tons of T6 materials, you will also get many other neat items.  "Gem Store Items," for example can be rare harvesting nodes which sell for around 100g a piece! (the wiki says that harvesting nodes are not a drop item, but several Guildies have confirmed they do drop from the Black Lion Boxes you get from log in).

Faster Crafting

Time gated crafting items can be crafted twice using your main and alt accounts!  You no longer have to wait until reset to craft another Bolt of Damask or Plate of Meaty Plant Food for profit!  In addition to time gated crafting, an alt account is incredibly useful for time gated items from vendors (i.e. the Lucky Envelopes from the Lunar New Years Update).

Of course, these are just benefits to help you make more gold.  There are plenty of other benefits to buying an alt (especially for $10), but since this is a gold guide I won't go into detail on that.

Note that owning an alt account is not against the TOS of Arena Net.  Be aware that once you own the account, it is yours and no one else's.  Sharing an account is prohibited!

If I missed anything feel free to add it in the comments!

    165 T6 is far more than 16g

    Oh crap. It is actually at least 50g lmao. My bad. I guess that just supports my reason why you should buy it even more!

    On top of that, if your main account has a nice home instance with wintersday tree, candy corn, sprocket generator and daily bandit chest, you can share this instance with your alt account as well. Doubling the mats you can get from it.

    You know, I've got two accounts, one which is just an old account I use for muling that I don't log into anymore. I completely forgot about getting the login bonuses for it. Thanks for pointing this out!
