I’ve finally succumbed and fired up a second account for myself. Dual boxing for the win?
In game, the guild I’m in (basically a collection of people from the old raiding guild) is made up almost entirely of people dual boxing and the like. One of ’em already has… seven? I think it’s seven 70’s. The rest have a bajillion alts, and it’s unnerving to log out with 2 druids at level 12… log back in the next day, and both of them are in their mid 40’s.
So I decided to get in on the hyper speed leveling.
My first combo is rogue/priest. Got to level 8 before even leaving the tiny starting area. So damn poor I can’t afford to buy Smite rank 2. The only challenging part of the game now is remembering to get quests for both characters.
It is, quite simple, unreasonable how fast mobs die, and how much experience they give. When you gain 3 levels completing a quest that asks you to kill 12 things, something has gone horribly, horribly right.
And I’ve now picked up a new naming convention, using only greek names.
With Euripedes being my original character, I kinda wanted to go through with that style of name. Preferably names with actual meaning, rather than simply sound-a-like names.
It ain’t hard to mash random keys and get a name like Rewgluides that sounds greek, but is completely meaningless.
The names I’ve used so far?
Euripedes -composed of the elements eu “good” and hripe “swing, throw.” Good flame throwing counts, right?
Aristophanes – derived from the elements aristos “excellence” and phanes “appearing.” He’s a rogue, so, that kinda makes sense.
Stylos – means “pillar”. He’s a druid. I laughed.
Euthalia – composed of eu (again) meaning “good”, and thalia meaning “blooming/flourishing”. Yep, another druid.
Eutropia – means “versatile”. It’s a priest, so it’s somewhat appropriate.
So where do I go from here? I’ve considered dual hunter, to use as a massive farming tool when they reach late game. Sadly, names like Orion are taken.
And now I need to get some cash together to rename all my other characters that don’t have greeky names.
Or delete the character and start over…
It’s not like it’ll be hard to level them up again.
