Sword and Bored: Alt

You know those people who are so in love with their one specific MMO class that they only roll that class, over and over? Or how about the guy that can never change his look for any of his characters? You might be one of these people, so understand that I think it’s adorable and not just funny. Heck, I have even done it myself to an extent. In my Star Wars: The Old Republic guild, we have one person who has literally created three Sith Marauders. For a while, they were all the same discipline.

This week’s comic is dedicated to him…

Sometimes I’ll reroll a character when coming back to an MMO from a long absence so I can get the hang of the class again (or because such drastic changes had occurred during my absence that the class is unrecognizable).

I have… three BHs, all same disciplines. >> Then I spent my free 60 token on an agent. I feel like I branched out, then promptly went back to playing one of my BHs when I got to 65. But hey! I have an extra buff now!

Vexia Something tells me you don’t quite understand the premise of fostering widespread quality. The bottom line is if you play every class, you’re more than likely going be more skilled of a player than if you just specialized in one class and avoided others.

Lets say your first class is a Ranger, and you have free character slots only available for the remaining classes. Let say you like the Ranger enough where you want create a another one. Would $10 discourage you from rolling another Ranger? Or would that entice you to trying the other classes for free? I really do believe this would foster more skilled play because more players would be inclined to seriously consider other classes for free. Then there still be those few who are adamant about playing anything but a Ranger. These players would be far less than those who would choose the free character slots. 

Bottom line here is that anything that can foster wider spread of skilled gameplay I’m all for it.

But if Mo rolled an alt, how much of the Mo we all know and still don’t have plushies of exists? Does alt’ing carry over the learned experiences of the original? Do mules dream of electric inventory bags?

ManastuUtakata It’s a shame the last two aren’t allowed in most games.
