Every new holiday event in Final Fantasy XIV prompts the same reaction from me, a question of which of my characters will be sad if they lack that holiday outfit. Sometimes the answer is “none of my characters at all,” and thus I continue forward wholly undaunted after my main has cleared the event. Other times I have at least three or four characters who definitely need the event rewards, and on rare occasions it’s all of my characters who need it in one fell swoop. That’s always tedious.
Obviously, how much stuff transfers between alts varies based on the game in question, and in games like World of Warcraft it’s almost perfunctory to hunt these things down on multiple characters. But it still raises the question of whether or not you would even if you need to. So now that we’re into the stage of the holiday season when you’re just clearing events away, let’s talk about this. Do you feel the need to do MMO holiday events on every character you play? Or do you never care about letting your alts have holiday outfits or rewards?
