I’m an alt o holic. (just getting that out there right now)
I love that this game lets you be all things and use all weapons etc. But as I get higher and higher level I find it will be more of a pain to switch to weapons that require a different stat such as Dex when I’m running strength right now. Sure I can respec my stats… but all my armor and jewelry is set for strength/con too and so my dex build would be gimped unless I have a compete second set.
So… coming from SWG as my first MMO where it was one character per server I found that lots of people including myself and my wife eventually had multiple accounts so we could have alts on the same server. At one point in 2005 with my wife and daughter playing I was paying for 9 sub fees after buying 9 copies of the game.
Buying one extra copy of a non sub game doesn’t seem like such a big hurdle compared to that but I started thinking about my game being linked to my Amazon Prime and to my Steam and wondered if there was a built in mechanic that would prevent me using a second game.
I looked at Steam a minute ago and even though it tells me the game is already in my library it appears to allow me to purchase another but I didn’t want to keep going and spend money on something if I was going to be blocked from using it later in the process of linking it to my Amazon Prime.
