Lobotomised hamsters. Toons with 20+ lives in bios utterly useless too often. Especially newer players that I suppose gets told that you suck without whateverfuckingpletionist. Jesus christ, hordes of those mouse clicking, keyobard turning tardlocks with awareness of baby chimpanzee with Tourettes.
Hundreds of past lives wouldn't make up for retarded gameplay. Nothing substitutes experience or fast fingers.
Each to their own.




Too true

Re: Alts: What's the Point in 2017?  
I just went through all my alts to get named gear to feed my sentient jewel.   Some of these I used to play all the time... and man some of them have some really crappy gear that was "HOT" at one point.

However, all my hoarding paid off... my sentient jewel is at 40K XP now.
7K from using all the named stuff in our guild chests that had been in there for years... was funny to see two "The Blood Stone"s in there... fucking vendor trash now.
18K from turning in all my ingredients for those Cormyerean random weapons E-Star
And  the rest from crap that has been sitting on mules/alts forever.

Sentient XP needs has definitely cleared up a lot of my hoarder inventory.

Re: Alts: What's the Point in 2017?  
but back on topic, I just play my quad-Triple completionist now.  If I want a different build, I just spend a week TRing it.  Can't bring myself to play something else that isn't as powerful as it could be.  Still keep around my old Shiradi Wizard... it's still pretty unkillable even with only 3 or 4 past lives on it.

I see a lot more using alts now with ravenloft.

I ran every one of my 12 alts through Ravenloft. Free favour and an Augment bag are too good to pass up.

Then did it again on another server (didn't get all 12 there though, those toons were hilariously out-dated).

In a sad way the TR-Racial-EPL-IPL hamster wheel was liberating for me.

I figured: "I won't see triple completion anything before the servers go dark... So fuck it."

I play alts for favour rewards, to help Guildees, free TP, and to find/grind gear.

I actually keep a few on perma-first life because their drop rates tend to be better. #tinfoilhat

Only reason i can see to play alts is the raids that give runes. feed them to other toons.
