There’s a whole group of MMO players who have always fascinated me: the type who keep rerolling the same characters over and over. For example, in Guild Wars 2, there’s a slice of the population with dozens of character slots unlocked specifically so they can roll one character of every race and class combination, so they end up with a ton of characters of each class, which even with elite specs must play more or less the same each time. I bet there’s even somebody out there who’s done it for multiple genders and personal stories too. I used to never understand these folks. I’m way, way too lazy for that.
But then I remember City of Heroes, and… maybe I’m not too lazy for that. I have a list of powersets that I really love to play, and while I generally don’t duplicate them too much, I’m a real sucker for storm characters, and I’ve had probably a dozen of them over the years. Right now, I have three that I actually play and keep on rotation! So maybe I understand the urge after all.
Do you reroll the same MMO classes over and over?
