I know you are all excited to rush for 50, but unless you just MUST race to be the very first 50 (and how would you know?) then make alts as soon as you start playing.

I must be the very first 51. soz

Thank you. This is actually pretty neat advice. But, won't there only be 4 character slots per channel? Or am I misinformed?

Conq's get +3, so they have 7 per SERVER, not per channel.  And you can have a max of 9 if you buy two more but I don't plan to do that off the start.

7 lets me have all classes, and should be enough energy to start.

Reminder:

About Alts -

  1. Offline energy regeneration is 1 per 30 minutes.
  2. Online energy regeneration is 1 per 3 minutes, unless you lay in a bed in a residence while online, in which case it is 1 per minute.

  3. A character has to be level 4 to use the quick character switch interface to avoid logging-out/logging-in.

  4. The alts can be different classes or the same class

  5. All characters in one account share the same max cap for energy and Contribution points.

  6. All characters share the same current and max values for contribution points. If your main is 5/50, then all of your alts will also be 5/50.

  7. Each character has its own independent current energy value, and share the same max cap. So you could have your main with 4/60, and alts with 0/60, 60/60, and any other value of x/60. But all would share a max cap of 60.

  8. There is a quick switch interface that allows you to switch from one character to an alt, bypassing the logout/login sequence, but it only works with characters level 4 or higher.

  9. All characters on the account share the same knowledge, map and quest history, other than the tutorial quest, which is individual to each character.

  10. All characters on the same account share mounts, pets, vehicles, nodes, houses, and all warehouses.

being an alt-maniac I approve of this. although this leaves me 2-3 days of character creation, picking names, changing looks. >_> Ill never get to play!!!

Naa, ive got templates for each class, so that makes creating the alts MUCH faster.

Really cool advice. I wonder if their will be changes to it in the future though. *shrugs*
   So even if you main a toon, your benefitting from this. If your new to the game, this is a excellent starting option as well before deciding what to main.. Many also mentioned using this to store//reserve future names too.

People who are new to the game or didn't make the in CBT2 don't get how important they are because in most games they are just extra inventory.

With the lengthy character delete timers I regret not spending more time with the character creation tool. I'd only customized 4 characters but I probably won't even use them. My headstart is going to be spent in character creation perfecting the looks of all my alts, lol.

I use my alts extensively for their energy - investing in nodes, resetting knowledge, and conversing w/ NPCs to gain knowledge.

delete timer as in the slot is held up? or the name? or the name is gone?  Ive heard alot of things on deleting chars. 

You are lost to us :)

I wanted to make alts when the game went live to hold Character Names, but not fuss about 100% looks untill I was ready to play said alt, I could get him to lvl 4 and use him for what you mentiond in the mean time. BUT my question is, say I make an alt named examplealt and he was 100% ugly, MAYBE even the wrong class, but the name I wanted. Could I delete that alt when I was ready to play him, make the char perfect looking and re-take the name? I've heard from some the name is stuck in limbo for 30 days, or gone forever O_O

Hopefully its fairly lenient so I can fuss on my main, get in game, and then hold alt slots with quick made chars (also reserving lucrative names :o )

That's useful. I never make alts, just have one main the whole game, but I guess making one and living them in the city doing the "paperwork" can be benefiting here.

Yeah, I can think of no drawback, especially if you have templates made or download them before hand so you don't waste time in char creator.

At most you are 30 min behind

Problem is, it took me a couple hours to make my ranger, and I refuse to go with a quick 'default' look for any alts.
