I just (finally) made a second user so I can explore different builds for my arisen. I'm seriously considering making one more just for the heck of it. My original character is level 180+ and about 60/40 favoring magic. She's been a Magic Archer for at least 50 levels. My new fellow is level 15 and just switched from a Fighter to an Assassin. I'm planning to pick up some Ranger stamina, as well as some magic defense, but then focusing mostly on playing a Warrior (because it's fun, at least until monsters fly high in the air). Now I'm contemplating starting just one more to focus almost exclusively on magic.
Am I a little too obsessed? This game may go on forever.
I'm feeling a little better already. Out of curiosity, do any of you still complete a ton of quests on secondary files? I know they have a good amount of XP early on, but there are some hoops I just don't feel like jumping through yet again (Wyrm Hunt, Symone, etc.).
I have three accounts. First of course is what used to be my main account from when I played original DD (level 185), but when I started to play DA, I had a hard time finding proper Pawns, so I decided to create a second one (level 144) and later on I started to play on my main again. When I did, I couldn't remember much about it, so I didn't have relationship to my main account anymore and it was the same case with my second account since there had been too much of going back and forth. Now, I've created an third account where I'm focused on stats and playing thoroughly.
6 are level 200, and three of them play Dark Arisen.
The other five are getting closer to level 200, but it'll take some time yet. And these are still staying on the vanilla DD, to take advantage of the x5 EXP bonus on the Bezel Crown which was dumbed down in the DA game. It's incredibly lonely on the vanilla game due to the servers only giving me on-disc pawns showing up around the game world, but I keep the unimportant accounts on the vanilla game to make the rift better when I visit it. :P
And yes, I know eleven accounts may seem like overkill, but I have them now and it seems a travesty to kill off all that effort and good-looking characters for nothing! ^_~
...it...just got a little out of hand when creating so many... @_@
