Character Creation, how many?

Does anyone know how many characters we can have? My guess is 2, but, like a said, a guess.

I assume 8 minimum since BioWare wants us to experience the stories of every class. No sense touting the unique stories for each class if you don't have enough character slots to make all 8.

I definitely know there will be more than two, but how many is anyone's guess. WoW allows up to 10 per server, I'd imagine it would be at least that many.

It would make sense, if there are 8 unique classes, it would give us room t play one of each, and then replay our top two.

Of course it also depends on how servers are done.

To clarify for people who haven't played WoW, it's 10 per server and a maximum of 50 characters total.

Speaking of WoW's system, I would like something similar to it, especially if the story is as important as they say.

Yeah, and they're gonna be pretty unpopular pretty quick if we have to delete characters we've worked real hard at and enjoy just to make a new one.

I'm thinking there will only be 6 character slots, with additional slots available for purchase.

But being fair, with WoW you have lots of race-class combos, as you will have [no doubt] with this game. So we'll just have to see, eh?

Personally I'll only ever play each class once.


If you wish peace, prepare for war.

I can't tell you how many times i've rolled new WoW characters over the years. I've actually reached my 50 limit at one point. I love to play alts for some reason.
So that being said, the more the merrier for me!

8 per server in beta I believe, but again, we'll have to wait for the final build to be certain, as I heard this number has fluctuated between 8 and 10. Either way, there are very few classes I would actually play anyways.
