It may be slow-going, but it's doable.

Though more than 1 other may not be a great idea until one of the original 2 are done.

This is just my take though..

If you can afford it, why not.

Not unless you:

1. Can grind super efficiently and your main is already super geared.

2. Can swipe $100 per week.

3. Or both.

You don't need to swipe 100$ per week for any class. I'm in a region owning guild with above 490 GS and I haven't spent money in 2months. I have 2 58 alts as-well. 

Level to M2 trade and watch as you make over 100m/day effectively doing nothing.

I agree with you. This game is mainly grind to win, but paying real money also helps you progress. Thus, grinding plus paying progresses you faster than just by grinding. 

let g = progress from grinding per week and p = progress from paying $100 per week.

Assume you are a quite efficient grinder, therefore g > p.

Thus, in one week,

 g + p > g.

In n week, n > 0, n-> positive infinity,

 n(g + p) > ng.

The difference is np.

While I agree with statement your arguments of "I'm in a region owning guild" "I have 2x58alts" and "M2 trade makes me 100m/day doing nothing" are just stupid xD

Well I mean all 3 of them are true :D, you make over 100m/day with M2 trade as-long as you are constantly crafting crates xD

There are lots of benefits to having alts. You get experience with  multiple classes which is useful for when PvP occurs against those classes, as well as the convenience of being able to farm in locations like Pirates and Valencia while still having a character at Heidel for when world/field bosses spawn. If everything is decently geared on your Valk I dont see any bad in investing in a witch as she is quite strong.

Brass ingot crates, Calpheon timber crates for example. you need M2 trade to make big profits with it though

Atleast that one has something to do with what you answered too, you being in guild having territory and having 2x58 alts is no argument :D

In n week, n > 0, n-> positive infinity,

Don't listen to this guy. 

 

Do whatever is fun to you. Who cares if you are efficient. Just don't expect to be top PvP god.

mmm yeah the master 2 part i know thanks. I got screwed with ninja patch and lost 15k crates. So now since its based on distancr im making another 25k iron ore in calph and going to arehaza for my master 2.

once i get master 2 i was going to start getting all the calph timber crate wood nodes. Was just wondering how fast they work. And if ill need to life skill as well while balancing out grind.

Nice calculations, but they can be cut down to this:

5 Pearl items sold each week = 120million more money every week.

It just has one big downsight. It costs real money. (100+ every week)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just do whatever you want. Have fun with the game. I myself started changing characters after I got my Tamer awakening. I started playing Kuno (really handy cause I can use my tamers mainhand). Than I continued playing my old Valk (case she has the Kibelius set A [bought when it first came out. Iam special look at me] and is a real Valkyire). After I got her up to a decent level, I started playing Warrior (And once again I can transfer my mainhand). Iam no where near competitive PvP btw.

were you trying to sound smart or something? That has to be the most ridiculous and obvious equation I have ever seen.... When you say "paying also helps with grinding", it's already implied that grinding....PLUS... paying.... Is more.... Wait for it, this is complicated.... THAN JUST GRINDING ITSELF!!! Who woulda known without that equation

I have 3 full TRI alts (not boss armor, boss is on main). Personally I like it a lot. Not so much about bosses (these can be done with much lower gear), but more about changing grinding style and alleviate part of the total boredom that mob grinding is. But most important thing of all is that u can make the most money in the game with properly equipped alts, if you know what to do. In the end, it is both more fun and more profitable. The drawback is that you devote part of your time and resources to chars other than your main, so your main char gets somewhat less progression. For me, it is totally worth it, for others, it could be a waste of time. Whatever floats one's boat I guess.

Basically every piece of gear u get for alts you are 1 step further from an upgrade on your main. 

If u are ok with it then have fun on alts. :)

Wait til you see how people respond with "Grinding is more efficient than paying", which is true, but they couldn't see the best players pay AND grind, which is the most efficient.
