How many of you are going to make alts? If you are, is it just to casually have a look on other factions or are you going to have a full walkthrough and level up to lvl 50?

Personally, I think I will stick to my main for a while. I don't have enough time to play a lot with a few characters, so I'll just try to make a versatile main and get the most out of it.

I will have a main that i will play mostly and then i will have side characters in all the factions. I will also try to have it so that i at least have maxed out professions on my main character's faction. And hopefully achieve the same on all factions.


I am the shadow within a shadow. I will accept any job; however I will execute the target, or maybe even the person who hired me; it all depends on who has the most gold to give. Even then you can not trust me to let you walk away with your life.

My main will be solely focused on PvP but I do plan to make alts to just explore and toy around with.

I don't see the point in alts because you can just do the 50+ and 50++ game modes to make your character fully developed. Why make an alt when you can just make your first character the best. . aroooound. Nothin's gona ever keep you down.

Well i personaly like having 1 breton 1 argonian 1 orc 1 kahjit 1 dunmer and 1 altmer. So why not go the extra 3 races for this game and have 1 of all races. Also some people like to have all classes on their account.

Eh. Doesn't seem worth it if you ask me. Granted, I can understand having one of each class though. . still that's only what. . 4 characters? I dunno. Still doesn't seem worth it. With the fact that with one character you can do all the different factions and then PvP and be the very best and possibly become emperor because of it. . I don't see the point in wasting time on silly alts. Granted, this is regarding the PvP players which . . is me in a nutshell. Although I hate PvP when I'm not the best I can be before hand. Otherwise it's more of a rage fest because the game makes it unbalanced for a reason. . like try playing WoW PvP now. . it's impossible because everyone has "pvp gear" so there's no way to get honor fast because you just get owned all the time. I ain't gonna be the person getting owned in PvP. Nooo sir. xD
Hopefully it's based on skills and not stats. I will be P/Oed if it ain't. >.>

There again. . guess it matters whether or not there will be AvA gear. . just praying there isn't. x_x

I'm going to have a wonderful array of alts, One character can get boring, besides Id love to experience the game from a different perspective, or play through it as a different role.

Well my main is gong to be a heavy armored dual wielding frontline waffle-stomper and i'm really going to keep him bound by RP, so I may end up making an alt later on to play around with archery and sneakery and such

I will eventually find myself playing an alt. Usually I end up playing characters from the stories I have written - and currently planning one alt. I was originally interested in a Breton or perhaps a Bosmer, but given that I am not incredibly familiar with the Lore of Elder Scrolls, I could only really focus on one faction at a time in terms of learning enough to write a story...

I try to limit my alts to 2. One character for each faction.

Alts are typical for old generation themepark mmos, where your characters possibilities were always limited. Classes were exclusive, faction areas were exclusive, even PvP had "caps" to prevent you from gaining too much by playing PvP. Once you reached level cap your activities became limited to large group content (again limited by usually weekly resets) or dreadful faction rep grinds and daily quest madness

ESO doesnt have any of those. True to Elder Scrolls spirit, within the themepark mmo you can do whatever you want. At 50 you only stop receiving further stat points and grear progression slows down. You will have about 30% of skills available at launch unlocked and you would start acquiring Veteran Points to allow your character to equip better gear. You can still craft viable items, you can unlock more skills, yu can visit any other faction areas, you can PvP like mad to get the Emperor skill line.

I suppose conclusion is obvious. We used to create alts (god I had 9 in WoW), because in old generation games endgame was indeed end of the game. In ESO it only opens up new chapter of character progression and thus I can see very little incentive to make an alt. Namely 3 skill lines of other classes, cosmetic racial skill lines and playing in communities of other alliances.

Its up to every one of us to decide how he want to play. its Elder Scrolls damn it. But my crystal ball says there want be nearly as many as we used to have. Myself I will consider even creating one long long time after launch
