I just picked up WoW a few days back for the first time. Being I recently got sick and as a result have to take time off from school for a semester, I needed something to fill the time.Now the last major MMO I committed to before this was FFXI, where soloing was nigh impossible and achieving a max level was a humongous achievement. Making money was always an issue and some of the quests for the most basic things could be near impossible it seemed if you didn't have some high level friends with some free time.. (Which always made me wonder how the first set of players ever even managed).Most importantly though there really weren't alts unless you wanted to play a job the race of your character really sucked at. Even then for the most part people stuck to a single character, and a single job because of all the time, effort, and money necessary to continue progressing through the levels.To move from that mentality to WoW where alts seem so common is a big change, I mean I couldn't see myself wanting to commit time to more than one character when I could focus on one and work on one and get the most out of them as possible. It just seems inefficient, but maybe it's because of my MMO history.Who knows, maybe even over time I'll cave and make an alt. But for the moment my little Dwarven Hunter is my focus, and he'll remain that way for awhile I hope as I strive to catch up in a game that people have been playing for so much longer than myself.
