Hi, I am Markus and I am addicted to creating continuously new characters/builds in games, where multiple options are possible. Unfortunately this is not limmited to video games, no, pen and paper, too.

At least one third of such games I spend at the caracter creation and in the first two hours of a game. The most dangerous gfames are MMORPGs to the point where I look up maxed builds but have no fun with it anmore.

For now I've decided to play Breton or Orc but I fear that my addiction will hit me again as soon as I can play TESO.
Does have anyone similar experiences? Any hints to overcome the pressure to create the most perfect character? (I know well, there is no "perfection" but still ...)

If you set your heart on experiencing and taking in the world, and making a character that suits your playstyle, rather than min-maxing, you might have an easier time dealing with what you're talking about.


In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

you will always have cookiecutter builds, its just the way this works. but nobody forces you to do it, well they kinda do if you want to do endgame raiding...

MaSche, my hubby also does this constantly in games and he plays many. I cannot understand how he can get all that experience on a character and then say "nope, he's not built right, I'm deleting him and starting him again."

It does teach you alot about character building, because each time you do this you learn. I think you learn things that you can apply in all games. He also has a massive file of character build advice and "cheats/console commands" for all different games from 1994 til now. Do you do this too?


TESO - - Multiplayer: "M'aiq does not know this word. You wish others to help you in your quest? Coward! If you must, search for the Argonian Im-Leet, or perhaps the big Nord, Rolf the Uber. They will certainly wish to join you." M'aiq the Liar.

"Va Khaj Dar - Khajiity's united? M'aiq will join!" M'aiq the Liar

To have the best and unique character, do not make to much characters(duh..i know..but), because the feeling of doing many is awesome, i know, but the fact that is not letting yourself enjoining and grow with your character, for what the game has to offer in some aspect as the levels and achievements for it new stuff etc, because you are to much more active in creating more and more characters and playing let say, one hour each or one hour a day, really (my humble and personal opinion) that is not enough or even satisfied to have your perfect character. My advice make one and when you have that character well equip do another and help the new one with the "AWESOME" first character.

P.S. Peace Winking_grinningThumbs_up
