How many characters allowed in early access?Follow

Since our paid subscriptions won't start until weeks after P4, I'm wondering if we will be allowed to have more than one character before we have to pay our subscriptions.

I would love to create a character in each city so I can try all the new classes that weren't in the Beta. I tried all the classes in Beta, so I know which one's I adore, and which one's I unadore (I was going to say deplore, but none of them were that bad).

Anyone heard any whispers about it? Thanks.

I'm assuming it will be just like beta, 8 per server and 50 across all servers. I'm guessing that after your early access/free month if you choose to only pay for 1 character then all of your other characters will be locked out until you pay more. If you plan on going this route, I would suggest making your main character in the #1 character slot.

So do this mean i can make other characters before launch? I need the fear of a starter person. Killing all the world mobs at rank 50 in a reindeer suit and crown didn't help much in fates or the storyline. If i don't have to delete my main during beta to start low it would be nice.

Well since you can't mail stuff between alts I don't see the point of making one now. Seems like they should make a way to lift the friends list restriction for characters you create.

I guess I could try selling it to myself on the AH or something lol

Edit...which I also can't do until level 20. Bleh

How about having a friend make an alt to trade you one? That way you could make an alt and trade them one back.

Its very simple to get all the rings.
1) Make a new character, get ring #1
2) Trade/give the ring to a linkshell friend.
3) Log back in to your old character
4) Have your linkshell friend trade/give you the ring#1
5) Wash and repeat to get all the rings.
6) Now its your turn to have your linkshell friend get his/her rings.
7) Everyone wins.

You have to wait until you are a higher level to send things on the AH or through a retainer.
However, you can trade with someone right from the getgo

You guys *are* aware the the retainers are account bound now (according to beta testers)? Just put the rings on the retainer then pull it off on whatever other character you want it on.

Yeah I did see that as an option. I was also thinking that this really makes alts for storage and AH purposes pointless. If I can't move goods and Gil between characters I don't really need them :(

Edit. Just saw the post about retainers but still not sure if new characters can summon them

But you don't get the retainer until level 20. Can your new level 1 alts summon the retainer once you've completed the quest on your main?

Since I don't have any RL friends in game maybe I'll ask a Zam member for assistance :)

Thanks for clarifying.

I haven't decided for sure, but I used Don Kupo during phase 3. The only thing I'm certain of is that my character's first name will be Don.
