Once again I find I’m not likely to play characters of an Evil persuasion. My characters have all been of an Evil alignment in EQ2 for awhile. Except for my level 95 boosted Wizard, I found I just wasn’t playing them. Neriak, The City of Hate (and it’s Hateful Citizenry) in particular would make me feel terrible whenever I visited, and my home was there. Eek.
I’ve been thinking I might like the game more if I played characters with an alignment to Good. My plan was to go ahead and buy five character slots that could be Good characters. I looked all through the shop and did not see where you could simply purchase character slots. Why don’t games let you buy character slots? Character slots and expansions are the two things I find I’d always be willing to pay real coinage for, yet many games seem to want to deny me my Alt-itis.
Plan B, Kill off a couple of Evil sorts and make new Good alignment characters. It made me so happy to be playing these, that I killed off two more, and now I have 4 to the Good and 1 to the bad. I might kill off the boosted character as well to get that juicy extra slot.
I seem to have gone with Mages and Healers. Everyone’s off the boat and on the Isle of Refuge. I’m going to try to keep them at the same level with my ace character rotation techniques. How easy it is to get a fresh start in a game if you just poof the characters you don’t really enjoy playing.
