The Daily Grind: How many MMO toons can you juggle at once?


I may have overdone it with the City of Heroes toons.

I’m currently working on a project to level several dozen characters up so I can hang onto their names until I’m ready to play them, so I do have more than I normally would choose to play. But now that I’ve gone through all three newbie experiences a coupla dozen times, I’m feeling very done. I am not attached to any of these characters or names now, and all I want to do is get back to my handful of pet favorites with their dumb pun names and goofy costumes.

Maybe City of Heroes is a bad example, though, since you can roll something like a thousand superheroes and trying new alts is the endgame. I’d have to look at my other main MMOs: In LOTRO, I cycle through three main characters and three alts while largely ignoring the rest as mules. In SWG Legends, I have all five character slots in use, but I mostly play one of them and use the others to support her craft. In Guild Wars 2, I’ve rolled 12 toons but seldom take any but my favorite four out to actually play. More than that and it’s just too much for me to care about – somewhere in the three to six range is apparently my limit.
