Altaholics

November 15, 2009 Leave a comment

I am a true altaholic and Champions Online made me find out why: envy. When I see a shiny ability, or a good-looking new race, I want to play that. With the unlimited possibilities of CO, however, I’m less alting, because my main character can have any power or any look I want. Not that I have changed anything fundamental about Comet Girl yet, but I like knowing that the possibility is there. The lack of varied content through the leveling process does not encourage alting anyway.

Alting in CO has been more about exploring powers and concepts for me. Some costumes I made simply asked for a follow up. Depending on how I liked playing them in PvE/PvP determines their current level. My healer, however, is lower than she should have been, but that is because there’s simply no real reward for healing. The following made it to 20 and beyond:

alt-miss-mutant

Miss Mutant is my only alt at 40. She's a true ranged PvP character relying on Gadgets and Munitions.

Soulbound dates back to Open Beta. I though a demon would not be suspected of healing unlike those obvious angels.

I wanted to try a high dps/roguelike melee character as opposed to Comet Girl's tankiness. I did not like using swords for my hero, so I settled for Ego Blades. Lucky for Waveblade that those greatly outdps the common blades.

alt-armor-d

I saw a plethora of demons and armored characters during my first CO days. Well, I can do that too, so Armor-D was born.
