* = pack mules
I've been playing this game a very long time now (E3 for everyone), from my early days as a PvP heavy player to my many years of playing mostly PvE, to occasional times when I mix it up.
I admit, only about half the characters on my acct were created by me, several others were created by my wife, my nephew, and one each for a husband-and-wife team of friend (I tried to pull them from WoW, but only short term luck - they both bought prophecies and finished it, then went back to WoW). If the character name is pun-ish, I'm probably to blame, and I also had a couple of inside joke characters that are no longer inside jokes. False Prophet was a Necro/Monk when the game was released, but switched to Monk/Necro about 2 weeks in due to necros sucking early on (ironically, they were buffed so that N/Mo was optimal a short while later), and now is Monk/any, so that joke diluted in time. I'm also to blame for Jas Sandwalker, which was me poking fun at my wife's characters (Saj + lastname) and also a stupid Star Wars joke (even I don't think it's funny, but I was probably a bit hammered when I created that char). In hindsight, my wife's character naming was probably better than mine, since always using the same name helps identify who you are in-game, but she always was the practical one. As of the last couple of years, I am the only one that has played on my acct - my wife hasn't been gaming lately and my friends mentioned above are
playing Rift and will probably go back to WoW, and my nephew plays shooters exclusively these days.
