The Daily Grind: What limitations do you place on alts in an MMO?

Space needed.

It’s really silly to have alts in Final Fantasy XI or Final Fantasy XIV. I do. I actually have several. The one saving grace I have in this context is that I do have limitations regarding what those alts can do. My alts in FFXI, for example, have exactly one job and one subjob leveled, just to maintain my sanity. There’s more than enough game to play with just that amount of progress.

This is not altogether unusual for me; in World of Warcraft, for example, most of my alts don’t bother with serious reputation grinds so long as there are ways to exist without them, and more involved quests or projects are limited to my mains. But I also know that some people will try to do nearly everything on every alt, however exhausting it might be. So what about you, dear readers? What limitations do you have on alts in MMOs? Or do you just limit yourself to one character and spare yourself the consideration in the first place?
