I was wondering if anyone is planning on having more than one character. I know there is a 3$ extra charge and that gameplay wise you don't NEED another character, with multiple classes on one but it still doesn't mean we can't have them.
Is anyone planning on having more than one character just because you want to? Or perhaps because you want to play the characters differently, a different race or starting city, perhaps having one be mainly a crafter vs fighter or the other one magic centric character vs melee, and so on. Again, I realize that the time spent leveling two characters differently could be spent on leveling one character with multiple abilities but its the fun aspect to it of viewing your characters differently. If you're racing to endgame obviously it wouldn't be for you.
I'm very much leaning towards having two characters myself. One mainly melee with Lancer, Archer and Marauder thrown in there, with a little bit of magic from Thaumaturge. The other character being mainly magic, lots of conjurer and Thaumaturge and a little bit of perhaps Pugilist. The way I figure it in regards to the extra 3$ is that it brings the price to about 16$ monthly, which is pretty much the cost of most other MMOs anyways.
So, even with a game such as FFXIV are there any other alt lovers out there? And/or what is your take on the idea.
