I rarely do alt in MMOs that I expect to level up to maximum. World of Warcraft remains the big exception because of the length of time I played. I had two characters in EQ2 but only one was for adventuring. I had two characters in Rift, where the second one was specifically to level with a friend who came to play well after launch. Even then, I redid the cleric and flipped back to my original toward the end since she was already geared for T2. The friend I made my second run through Rift with came to try GW2 over the holidays. Creating a character to use for that purpose reminded me of two things.
