This is something I often ponder about.
In one corner we have people who sticks to the same character for years. Some of these have even played the very same character as main since World of Warcraft was released. Others only switched mains maybe once or twice.
There's an unspoken sort of respect surrounding these kind of players.
In the other corner we got alt-o-holics, who can never decide, or just gets bored easily. The latest expansions made life easier for these kind of players, who go by terms such as 'FOTM-rerollers'. A general discourse dictates, that these people should be frowned upon for whatever reasons.
But the categorizations of these two types of players doesn't matter to me. What's really interesting is how and why do we bond with our characters?
Do you stick to one class because it has special mounts, achievements, titles and most important of all - your best World of Warcraft-memories? Or are you fine with having 11 different level 90'ies, because your greatest interest is being top dollar DPS/Healing/Tank at any cost?
In other words...
Do you stick to one class because of emotional attachments or do you reroll for maximum efficiency? Or maybe something in between? Or maybe you feel let-down and forced to reroll, even though you don't want to.
Do you have any emotional bonds with your main?
