The Daily Grind: Which MMO characters of yours do you truly miss?

Oh, victis.

If MMO characters had opinions and feelings of their own, they probably feel very much let down by my decisions over the years. I’ve left plenty to be abandoned, deleted others, or casually tossed some out to reroll them in an attempt to do it better this time.

There are some characters that I dearly miss when I spend time thinking about them. Perhaps they’re in games that are no longer functioning, lost on some server that I forget the name, or erased in a rash moment. But we had good times, didn’t we? Some pretty amazing adventures? They’re like old friends who I used to be close to but now only think about when Facebook reminds me that it’s their birthday.

Which MMO characters of yours do you truly miss? What did you love about them back in the day?

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!

My WOW druid was the closest thing to my ideal character. It fit my play style exactly.

Nowadays however, I fear my ideal character just runs through the world where I just push a single key and let the computer figure out what to do for any encounter. :)


It’s a toss up between three DAOC characters, my Minstrel for it’s awesome utility / speed, my Skald for being extremely rugged, speed to run down anyone, and often being quite low in the kill order meaning I often had the most kills on the field.

Finally there was my Theurigist, so loved dropping ice pets all over the field which often would even avenge my deaths after I fell.

My Zabrak Ranger/Rifleman from SWG. I know there are a few emulators, but I just can’t do it.

Kevin Smith

My Warhammer squig herder (Loudmouth). I know there is the private server for the game but it isn’t the same.


MY EQ1 shaman. Versatile class, great buffer, amazing starting zone, no clue what I was doing.

Happy days.


For me, my DAoC Alb Cleric. Really miss that game at peak. Secondly would have to be Star Wars Galaxies Wookie Marksman.

Mindstyder: My first character, a telekinetic, electrical flying hero (blaster).

ManBullBot: 50% man. 50% bull. 50% bot. Discovered in a worn down circus in the 1960s by a raid from Immigration and Animal Services found the circus far below code in taking care of animals, exploiting immigrant labor who couldn’t speak English and no one knew what to make of the star “freak”, ManBullBot, who was “acquired” by the original circus own in the late 1940s before he died. There were many rumors that only increased when it was discovered by accident that he understands German (tanker).

Mr. Straight Shooter: A masked crimefighter, styled after 1950s masked crusaders in slacks, shirt, tie, fedora, domino mask, and fighting crime with augmented physique and a bow and arrow (blaster).

Robogirl: Don’t be fooled by the pretty pastel petticoats and pigtails. You cross the law and she will kick your butt (scrapper)–while trying to understand human emotions.

Col. Jag O’Neill: Leader (blaster) of the StarCosmicAccessTunnel Command’s lead team, StarCAT-SC1–along with Lt. Samantha Catter (defender), Dr. Daniel Catson (controller) and alien warrior, Mil’k (scrapper).

Bad Panda: Martial artist who dressed up like a panda (scrapper).

Justice Beaver: Half man, half beaver, all hero (scrapper). The answer to a question:

There were more, of course. In the end, it took about 20 minutes just record showing each one on screenshot recording just before COH was shut down.

My CoH characters. They live now, only in my memories.
