The Daily Grind: Do you create completionist characters in MMOs?


Despite no longer being a young buck with scads of extra time on his hands, every so often I find myself foolishly rolling up a new MMO character with the ludicrous goal of making her a completionist character. This one, I tell myself, will be the character that does every quest, every achievement, goes crafting, takes the time to smell the roses, and explores all of the corners of the map.

Sometimes that resolution lasts for a month or so, giving me an interesting experience that I nevertheless cannot sustain. It’s a question of time, and I don’t have it. But I still feel pulled on occasion toward the notion of creating a “do everything” character.

What about you? Do you create completionist characters in MMOs? If so, how have those worked out for you?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
